The Awakening Author Book Writing Mentorship Program

Write a High-Quality Book You’re Proud to Share

The Awakening Author Book Writing Mentorship Program offers a comprehensive, step-by-step system to help you move towards the self-respect that comes from having published a quality book you can share with integrity.

It aims to assist you to learn to think and behave like a successful writer, and develop a book writing process that is tailor-made for your unique way of being in the world. And, more to the point, it harnesses you to your vision so you can press forward in powerful and expansive ways and get that darned book finished.

This program has been specifically designed for people who have heard the siren call of the book they are here to write and who want to make their mark in the world and change people’s lives with the story they have been creating since the day they were born.

Your mentor, Susan Crossman, aims to ensure your book is authentically aligned with your highest truth and your core beliefs and that the stories you have to tell are engagingly told with integrity. She is a highly qualified mentor who can give you guidance and create the space you need to keep moving irresistibly towards your ultimate goal of writing the book only you can write.

At the Awakening Author we aim to provide the best content and support to help you identify your book writing challenges and then deal with them cleanly and with great respect for all the other balls you are juggling in life. We bring a Conscious perspective to our work and we understand the need to balance flow and fluidity with structure and detail. And we are backed by experience borne of decades in the fields of writing, authoring, marketing and editing.

Features of the Awakening Author Book Writing Mentorship:

1:1 Book Structuring Call with Susan Crossman plus a full report that will map out your book’s structure and establish benchmarks for completion of your book. This will give you huge clarity on the book you are writing so you can finally stop spinning and get rolling.
