Richelle clearly knows every aspect of the industry and gave insider tips that I never would have found elsewhere.
Why Is The Publishing Industry So Hard To Crack?
You've wanted to write a book for years–and you're ready to take action to make this dream a reality!
What are you supposed to do first?
How do you actually get a book published?
How do you come up with a GREAT book idea?
There's a lot of conflicting advice about the steps you need to take to land the book deal of your dreams. And there's a lot of misleading information about what the publishing industry is looking for in books and authors they want to put on shelves.
Let's be honest — it can be confusing and frustrating if you don't know where to start or who to listen to, but I can help!
Join Me For The Aspiring Authors Assembly
As a former publishing exec and book coach, I work with emerging authors, agents, and publishers every day, so I have my finger on the pulse of the ever-changing book industry.
At these fun and informative monthly gatherings, I’ll share what I know with you.
I'll open the session by teaching around a hot-button publishing topic and take your questions on ANY topic about writing, including:
- How can I overcome writer's block and keep my creative flow going?
- What are the next steps in the publishing process I should be aware of?
- How can I effectively translate the ideas in my head onto the page?
- What are agents and publishers currently seeking in the industry?
- What do I need to know about navigating the submission process?
- How can I gain a clear understanding of the publishing timeline and other important aspects?
- How can I find inspiration and motivation to keep writing and pursuing my publishing goals?
No question is too big or small, and you'll be in community with others seeking answers to the same questions.
If you’re ready to make real progress on your book journey instead of feeling overwhelmed, uninspired, and lost — I’m so ready for you!

I was initially drawn to Richelle for her breadth of experience and expertise—and no surprises there when we began working together. BUT! What I wasn’t expecting was this process to be so FUN!
Working with Richelle was like working with an instant friend, a confidante, an advocate and literary ninja all in one. I looked forward to every single one of our calls and was sad when they ended (but also totally fired up because she had given me the precise, next steps until our next meeting.)
Richelle’s advice and feedback is spot on. She knows the publishing world inside out and from all angles. Working with her, I felt like I had the ultimate advantage: someone who gave me all the secrets to the literary world and how to shape my proposal in way that would generate lots of interest—but also still remain true to my mission as a writer.
Richelle helped me sprint to the finish line of my book proposal. What felt like an impossible project in the beginning became a manageable, step-by-step process where I felt supported the entire way. In a few months, Richelle coached me to a multi six-figure book deal with one of the largest publishers in the world.
