IS WORKING WITH A BOOK COACH WORTH IT?
YES! But don't just take my word for it.
"Every writer, from complete beginners to seasoned professionals, needs someone to do what they can’t do, no matter how experienced: see their own work with fresh eyes. The trick is finding someone who can then pinpoint what’s working, what isn’t and how to remedy it. For me, that person is the indefatigable, insightful, beautifully brutally honest Jennie Nash. While she never pulls punches (after all, you’re paying her not to), Jennie is always encouraging, empathetic and compassionate – not to mention spot-on. She is also quick. All this is why, even though I’ve worked in publishing, as an agent, and taught writing for decades – in fact, my book is about how to write a story -- I turned to Jennie when I wanted to get the manuscript ready to shop. We worked together every step of the way: on the manuscript (including helping me get organized enough to really focus in on it), the query letter, the proposal, and the marketing platform that helped me land the agent I wanted most, who then sold the book to a great publishing house. I couldn’t have done it without Jennie, and I can’t recommend her highly enough. She is a godsend." —Lisa Cron, Wired for Story and Story Genius, (Ten Speed Press, 2016). Instructor, fiction master class, UCLA Extension Writers' Program. Ted Talk-giver.
"You are not a book coach, you are a life changer. You are the wind beneath my wings. I fear for you if the two of us ever end up at a karaoke bar." -- Tracey Cleantis, author of The Next Happy, a finalist for the Books for a Better Life Awards and An Invitation to Self-Care (Hazeldon). Psychotherapist, speaker.
"Thank you to Jennie Nash, first my writing teacher at UCLA and then my independent editor for the last six years, whose honesty and incisive edits have made everything I've written better. I do not publish anything without her reading it first. To all writers or aspiring writers, I recommend Jennie." -- Sam Polk, author of For the Love of Money (Scribner), Founder and CEO of Everytable and Groceryships. (What exactly happened? Sam's book came out to huge acclaim. See this piece in The New Yorker for a taste of it.)
"Wow! I have to tell you that Jennie Nash is a true miracle-worker. I have been toying around with writing a book for years but could never seem to get it off the ground. Sound familiar? Jennie Nash to the rescue! Jennie listens to you and lasers in on what your book is supposed to be. It is almost like she pulls it out of you (because we all know there is a book inside of us) but it can be hard to find the focus and clarity. It is so FREEING to actually see your story and pin it down. I now have a clear path and purpose of how to proceed and actually can't wait to go and tell the WHOLE WIDE WORLD. She is amazing and I feel completely confident in the fact that I can ACTUALLY do this!. You are the best." --Abby Bliss, nutritionist, detox queen.
