Have you ever wondered how you’re going to sell your book once it’s written or if anyone will want to buy it? How do you know if your book idea is worth writing about?

In this on-demand training, we’ll develop your book idea together and pave the way for you to create book gold—a book that sells!

You’ll learn:

  • How to develop your concept so it’s both literary AND marketable
  • Why your book matters and who it’s really for
  • How to research, test, and validate your book idea
  • The mindset shifts you must make to become a successful author
  • How to avoid the most common author mistakes

In addition to self-paced videos and exercises, you’ll receive a 30-minute, 1:1 consultation with Mary* to be sure you’re on the right path to start writing your book.

*Once you've completed the course AND your final assignment.


This course is for writers of nonfiction, including memoir.

During our time together, you'll learn how to develop your concept, research the market, and more—it's the necessary prework to writing a great book (that most aspiring authors never think about!).

When we're done, you'll have a basic outline, a polished pitch, title options, an understanding of your audience and target market, and the confidence and clarity you need to start writing!

Hi, I'm Mary

I'm a certified ghostwriter and book coach who believes your story has the power to change the world. Really. I love to help authors like you discover the gold in their own story and turn it into a marketable, literary property (read: a book that sells!).


Let's write it together.
