Book Coach Training and Certification

Teaching Book Coaches to Level Up Their Coaching Practice


“Jennie Nash is the SuperWoman of book coaches. She is bringing dignity and skills to this Wild West profession.” —Jennifer Louden, bestselling author


After training more than 40 book coaches at Author Accelerator, I decided to make our training program available to anyone interested in becoming a coach. I spent more than a year pulling the curriculum together, presenting sample pages for every single lesson, shooting video, and interviewing experts to help round out the learning. I’m extremely proud of the result. It’s comprehensive and rigorous, and students who have gone through the program are thrilled with their level of skill. They feel prepared to launch their own book coaching businesses.

We are continually adding more content, including masterclasses in classes in specific genres, agent pitching, and a brand new course on the business of being a book coach.

Coaches certified in Author Accelerator’s Book Coach Certification program will become part of an ongoing mastermind group dedicated to excellence.

“Being a book coach is a privilege: you enter into a relationship with an individual who is pouring heart and soul, and considerable effort, into a manuscript. Your job is to coach them to produce the best manuscript possible, managing the creative, emotional and intellectual rollercoaster that is the inevitable life of a writer. How do you learn to do that? Take Author Accelerator’s Book Coaching course. I mean it. Sign up. It is comprehensive, thorough and is packed with resources. Not only does this course address every facet of the coaching relationship and process but it also provides a robust and supportive community. And …… it is amazing value for money.

You’ve got to do the work, and there is lots of it, but it is so worth it.” — Mack Macintosh, Advanced Book Coach Certification student
