It's time to write that

Book, Author

Yes, I'm Talking to YOU!

You have a burning desire inside of you to share your story.

The words that live deep in your soul are fighting to come up to the surface, waking you up at night and driving you mad. 

I know because I'm just like you.

The thought of writing and publishing a book can feel overwhelming. Trust me — I get it! 

Especially when the way it currently looks for you is ANYTHING but easy.

If you’re being honest, it's downright FRUSTRATING. 

  • You spend hours every day daydreaming about the book that’s in your head.
  • You write aimlessly with no clear vision or direction for your overall goals. 
  • You’ve tried EVERYTHING, joined writing groups, listened to podcasts or maybe even earned an MFA, but you still can’t seem to get your book out of your head, let alone sold.
  • You’re so focused on taking care of others that you're worried you’ll never find the time to make your dream of writing a book a reality. Maybe waiting is the answer. Spoiler: it’s not.
  • You’re not sure another program can help you, but you’re ready for REAL results. You’re tired of wasting time, money, and energy yet still being left ages away from calling yourself an author. 

Truth bomb: Your efforts thus far haven’t helped you finish your book.

Maybe they’ve given you some great ideas or things you know you “should” do, but you still backslide into old habits, become overwhelmed, or worse, develop self-limiting beliefs. (You can tell that little voice in your head to go away now.)

You’re at the point of giving up altogether because it’s looking like NOTHING will work. I know because I’ve been there. 

And I’m here to help.

Meet Your New Author Coach

Camille-70

Hi, I'm Camille!

AUTHOR, EDITOR, AUTHOR COACH AND SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR

I help you tap into your creative gifts so you can publish the book of your dreams.

I’m a writer like you, so I know the challenges that come with putting pen to paper. So many thoughts, so many blinking cursors...

As someone who went to grad school with a dream of becoming a published author, I also know the honest truth behind the business. What I came away with after three years of studying is that you DON'T need an advanced degree to write books.

You don't need a Master's, and you definitely don't need a PhD!

In fact, while school helps you hone your writing skills and become a better reader, it does not come close to preparing you for actual publication. 

I learned this the hard way.

I started book coaching because I believe we all have a story that begs to be told. With the right guidance, you can overcome all of these blocks.

That’s why I’m passionate about helping other writers:

  1. finish their books
  2. make a lasting impact on the lives of their readers
  3. impact their own bottom line 

Writing and publishing a book is a monumental feat, but you don’t have to do it alone. I walk hand-in-hand with you to make sure you reach your goals.

Using a proven framework, I'll help you write, edit, and publish your next book with confidence and joy.

I'll also guide you as you grow your author platform so you can sow seeds that bloom into a lasting legacy.

You Really Can Write a Book that Impacts Lives

...one that also helps you grow a sustainable business and lasting legacy.

Having a book coach in your corner is the most effective way to bring your book to life.

As your coach, I'll...

...provide editorial feedback.

...motivate and inspire you.

...give you the support you need to stop making excuses and get the work done.

I'm Here To Help You Stay on Track And Remain Accountable. 

You'll receive Feedback, Guidance, And Support on your journey to authorhood.

What if I told you...

You can write a book, sell it to thousands, and...
...leave a legacy.
...grow a business.
...inspire others.

I know because this is what I do, all day, every day.

IMAGINE...

Finally being a published author and sharing your words with the world.

What would it mean to you if...

...you could finally call yourself an author instead of dreaming about it like some distant or unattainable goal?

...you stepped into your authority as an expert in your field and had a waitlist of clients because your book is nurturing raving fans?

...you were speaking on stages and getting paid to share your expertise with audiences all over the map, all because of your book? 

... you could finally share the stories that are inside your heart, the ones you know you are called to share with those who are meant to read them? 

 Imagine being able to finally achieve all of that in 2022 with a proven system that makes the process enjoyable.

Now you can with...

AUTHOR LEGACY PROJECT™

A 6-Step System to Take You From Ideation to Book Creation

AUTHOR LEGACY PROJECT™ isn't just another writing program like others you may have taken.

This is an intimate, high-touch program that provides you with a proven roadmap, editorial guidance, accountability and emotional support over 12 months so you can write, publish, and market your book—in 2022.

With my guidance, you will plan and write the first draft of your book. Once your draft is completed, we'll continue to work together for the remainder of the year as you edit, publish, and market it.

You'll have the opportunity to submit your work for peer review and live editing workshops. After each workshop, you'll receive editorial feedback in the form of developmental (think big picture) and in-line (more detailed) edits.

You’ll work side by side with seasoned editors as you go through the editing process, then move on to work directly with an experienced publishing consultant to find the best publishing route for YOU. 

When you join at the Premier and Elite levels, you will also be paired with an editor to ensure your manuscript is polished before publication.

By the end of the year, you’ll have a clear, actionable plan for getting your book on the shelves and into the hands of those who need it most.

And because we are serious about offering you the support you need to succeed...

Once you've graduated from the program, you'll also be granted 6 months access to the Author's Lounge where you will continue receiving support in the form of accountability calls, live group coaching, and access to our private community.

Your Path to Being an Author Starts Here.

Phase Zero

MINDSET

Becoming an author begins with claiming you already are one!

We can change your habits, but if you want to see serious change, you have to start with self-talk and mindset. Phase Zero starts with getting your mind right! 

Template Gleam Accents (500 x 300 px) (500 x 200 px)

Phase One

ACTIVATE

Before you start writing your book, you need to do the pre-work.

Phase One is all about laying a solid foundation for your book. We will get crystal clear on your book idea, write your book description, outline your table of contents and more! 

Template Gleam Accents (500 x 300 px) (500 x 200 px)

Phase Two

WRITE

The time has come to get your book out of your head and onto the page.

Phase Two is all about getting the writing done. This is where I will hold you accountable to your word count goal so you can get your book written in 90 days. This phase is not about writing your book to perfection. During this time, we will get your messy first draft done and worry about editing later.

Template Gleam Accents (500 x 300 px) (500 x 200 px)

Phase Three

EDIT

Now comes the magical part!

Some writers love the editing process and others would rather watch paint dry! Regardless of what camp you're in, editing is where the TRUE magic happens.

During Phase Three we will spend several weeks workshopping your book. You will be able to submit your work before each workshop for professional feedback and live coaching.

During our Live Editing Workshops, you’ll learn how to become a better writer and improve your self-editing skills. Since hiring an editor is critical to publishing polished work, we will walk you through what to look for when hiring an editor and help pair you with a professional who is right for you.

Template Gleam Accents (500 x 300 px) (500 x 200 px)

Phase Four

EXPAND

You're investing a lot of time, energy and money into getting your book out into the world, so I'll assume you would like to make that investment back.

During Phase Four, we'll work together to make a plan for growing your author platform. I will give you a proven framework for growing your platform, so you have an audience of raving fans when it's time launch your book.

Template Gleam Accents (500 x 300 px) (500 x 200 px)

Phase Five

PUBLISH

Ohh, we are getting soooo close to getting your book out into the world!

During Phase Five, we will guide you as you publish your book. Regardless of whether you self-publish or pursue a hybrid or traditional publisher, we will walk you through the process.

During this phase, we will work on getting your cover designed and your book formatted. This phase may vary based on several factors depending on your personal journey, but we will be focusing on all the things you need to do to get your book published.

Template Gleam Accents (500 x 300 px) (500 x 200 px)

Phase Six

LAUNCH

The time has finally come for you to launch your book!

This is when we work to get your book into the hands of those who need it most. During Phase Six, I will guide you as you create a marketing strategy to launch your book. I will also provide you with templates and promotional swipes (think emails, landing pages, and more) that will support you in this process so you can keep it simple and make the most of your launch.

Template Gleam Accents (500 x 300 px) (500 x 200 px)

Hooray! You did it!

You published your book!

What It's Like To Work with Camille

Led Me To The Land of Clarity

When I was lost and in need of direction for the ideas swirling around in my head, it was Camille who took my hand and led me to the land of clarity. She worked with me to design and create two websites that brought my projects and vision to life. However, her expertise goes beyond web design; she breathed life into my stagnant concepts and helped me to think outside the box, utilizing the latest marketing techniques and tools to connect with my audience. Her business sense and savvy served as the catalyst and encouragement I needed to move forward, and use my knowledge and experience to benefit others. Without Camille, my work wouldn't be displayed on a beautiful platform, and I would still be stuck in the brainstorming phase.

- ANGIE AULDRIDGE, EMBRACING HOLLAND AND ANGIE AULDRIDGE, LLC

Game-changing Support

I started working with Camille as my writing/book coach several months ago. As someone who absolutely loves to write but is new to the world of publishing and writing books, I knew I needed expert support from someone with the depth of knowledge that she has. I am currently working on my second book project and having Camille’s support has been game-changing. Not only is she knowledgeable on all of the nuances of the process (editing, setting up the framework, publishing…the list goes on), but she is personable and so much fun to work with! I absolutely love working with her and know I’m in good hands. If you are thinking about writing a book and don’t know where to start Camille is your woman! She saved me so much time and literally walked me through the entire process. I absolutely love working with Camille ❤️.

Hannah Kates

Multi-Published Author, Ghostwriter, Editor, and Publishing Consultant

“Writing is a passion. Bringing stories to life is a calling.”

Hannah Kates is an author, editor, ghostwriter, and literary consultant with over a decade of experience in both the indie and traditional publishing fields. While her commercial work includes everything from military grand strategy to children’s literature, her passion for helping authors share their stories has led her to mentoring and editing positions at renowned international programs like #WriteMentor and WriteHive. First and foremost, Hannah believes in the power of story. Every author’s journey is individualistic, and their publishing experience should be tailored to their personal goals—not a corporate agenda. No publishing route is a one-size fits-all option, and she works fastidiously with her authors to find the best route from blank page to commercial shelves.Hannah currently serves as the CEO of LoftHouse Publishing in Annapolis, Maryland. Her commercial fiction is represented by Lynnette Novak of the Seymour Agency.

This is For You If...

You've been itching to write a nonfiction book and know you were meant to share the words that have been stuck in your head.

This is also for you if:

  1. You're ready and eager to work hard in a high-touch workshop environment to write, edit and publish your first (or next!) nonfiction book.
  2. You have something to say, be it in the form of a devotional, self-help/development book, or memoir.
  3. You have a book idea but are stuck on how to start, need help organizing it, and could benefit from a push to get past the finish line.
  4. You want to build an author platform and grow a business using the instant credibility that comes with writing a book.
<< Fair Warning >>

This program is not for you if you are that person who is not willing to do the work.

This is also not for you if:

  1. You are writing fiction or a children's book.
  2. You are not willing to do the work and prefer to find someone who will do it for you. My guest coaches and I will not work as your coauthor or ghostwriter. We are your coaches. This program is for people who want to write their own books but who would like guidance and support in doing so.
  3. You are not willing to work hard. This is NOT a program for people who believe it is fast and easy to write a good book.
  4. You prefer to work in a 1:1 setting. Some people simply do not like group settings and that's perfectly okay! If you are one of those people, reach out to me about working together privately.
  5. You do not enjoy community, collaborating, and being supportive of others. All ships rise with the tide. When we support one another, we raise the bar on everyone's work. This is what makes this program unique.

Some Serious Love For Hannah

"I could not speak more highly of Hannah and her editing expertise. She was incredibly reassuring, and I couldn’t be happier with the guidance she provided me through the entire process. Working with her has been nothing short of fantastic. I consider her more like a magician, turning my manuscript into the spell-binding story it is today. If anyone needs a fairy godmother to help transform their book from an idea to a work of art, Hannah is the perfect editor for you. That’s why I will only be working with her on any future projects I pen."

Author S. J. Vinks

“Hannah is a true Word Wizard! She takes the voice of my mission, vision, and love for what I do and translates it into something that is so beautifully and perfectly written. She is a thoughtful, humble, and genius writer that has the ability to capture the very essence of each story and make it relatable, informative, and captivating! She’s the absolute best to work with, too, because she truly cares and assures you that you have a story worth telling. I highly recommend working with Hannah, every word with her is pure magic!” 

AliceAnne Loftus, Speaker, Author, Founder of Leading Lady Coaching

“Hannah Kates' feedback is invaluable. She sees straight into the heart of a story and homes in on what works and what doesn't. Her feedback is insightful and sharp, always delivered with kindness and encouragement. Her comments always resonate and her input ups my game every time. She's a fantastic brainstormer, too. I give my highest recommendation for her skills that deliver. I love her wisdom, humor, and freshness that brings a new edge to any story.” 

Mel Stephenson, Author/Illustrator

"To summarize my experience with Hannah in one paragraph is nearly impossible. There are several elements of her mentorship that are worthy of mentioning. First off, she's authentic, meaning she brings with her nothing but loyalty and commitment to your work. She is genuine, humorous, and fun to work with, you can't beat those traits when working knee-deep on an important project!

Not only does she work on your project, she works on YOU! Going above and beyond providing links, educational materials, tips, and resources to make you a stronger writer. Hannah's work ethic, organization, and timeliness are impeccable. She has a passion for bringing your written dream to life.

When working with Hannah, not only do you gain a mentor, you gain a friend who truly cares about your success.Hands down, Hannah Kates will direct all of my future projects."

Author Jamie McClintic

“Hannah Kates' feedback is invaluable. She sees straight into the heart of a story and homes in on what works and what doesn't. Her feedback is insightful and sharp, always delivered with kindness and encouragement. Her comments always resonate and her input ups my game every time. She's a fantastic brainstormer, too. I give my highest recommendation for her skills that deliver. I love her wisdom, humor, and freshness that brings a new edge to any story.” 

Mel Stephenson, Author/Illustrator

“Hannah…has been an invaluable step to my writing process. I make sure to get her eyes on every first (or second!) draft, as her careful editorial eye and unmatched insight always take my books to a higher level just by having her read them! Her feedback is positive and encouraging while still pushing me to hone my craft and grow as a writer. I'm positive that I would not be where I am in my writing career (Agented and on submission!) if not for Hannah's incredible skill as an editor.”
