Do you have an idea for a romance novel but don't know where to start?
Are you looking at the publishing world and wondering where you fit in?
Feeling like your latest project lost its pizazz thanks to those pesky creative blocks?
Are you overwhelmed by how to build your brand and stand out in the crowd?
Do you crave honest input from a professional who will spot your weaknesses and help you improve?
Well, my writer friend,
the time is now.
It's time for you to get 1:1 support from someone who's been there, done that and lived to tell about it. We all know that the writing process isn't glitz and glamour 24/7 but that doesn't mean we have to wallow in boring prose and less-than-inspired story ideas. Right?!? Right!
Listen, I get it. I'm a romance author just like you. What served me the most was my unflinching determination to figure it out and take it to the next level.
But this isn't about me.
This is about empowering you to write the book you've been dreaming about. To tap back into your passion for writing and increase your confidence. To build your brand so your ideal audience finds you with ease.
It's my intention to help you get the sparkle, shine, and sizzle back into your writing so it illuminates the page and captivates your audience.
THIS IS FOR THE WRITER WHO:
Is seeking guidance and inspiration
Is driven and motivated, but craves support along with high-level expertise and feedback to reach her full potential
Is done doubting herself, and knows her book is amazing
What to expect
Together we will:
Increase your confidence
Plan and put into motion a comprehensive vision for your book
Brainstorm and discuss ways to strengthen your story
Set the foundation to build your platform, fine-tune your branding and connect with your audience
Have A LOT of fun along the way
Here is what I can do to help you:
I can show up, support you, and share with you everything I know. I can brainstorm with you and empower you. And I will do all of this in a safe, supportive space so you can feel comfortable and energized as you set out to achieve your goals and publish your book.
It would be an honor to be right there with you as your personal writing coach, helping you to thrive.
GLITTER & GRAMMAR COACHING PROGRAM
The Glitter & Grammar private coaching and mentoring experience is an 8-week program. It's designed for the writer who desires to focus on specific areas and is ready to go all in on her project to get it done with regular guidance. Areas we can dive into include (but aren't limited to), writing process, dialogue techniques, showing vs telling, plot issues, character development, creative blocks, branding, social media strategies, submission approach, etc. Here is what you'll get:
TAILORED ONE-ON-ONE CALLS
As part of this program, you'll have access to my calendar to schedule your one (1) hour, one-on-one coaching call each week. I coach Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. All I ask is that you show up for each call with a plan. I'm more than happy to read through your chapters and provide feedback, discuss character development, dialogue techniques, plotting issues, etc. It's up to you to decide what the focus of each call will be. I'll be there to support you, brainstorm with you and dig into my 15+ years of writing experience in broadcast media, promotions, and marketing to answer any questions you may have.
We will meet via Zoom.
UNLIMITED VOICE & TEXT SUPPORT
When our calls end, you still have access to me! You'll have unlimited voice and text support Tuesday through Friday (10am - 6pm EST) via the Voxer app between sessions. So if you have questions, find yourself stuck on a scene or just want to bounce some ideas around, send me a message!
How you choose to utilize this opportunity is up to you. You'll have access to my experience and knowledge. I'm more than happy to share my best advice and feedback with you as we work together. While I can't write your book for you, I'd be honored to be your writing bestie along the way.
INVESTMENT: $1200 (USD)
Hello sunshine! I'm Lynn Montagano. I am a writing coach, and like I said above, a romance author, just like you.
With more than 15 years of experience writing for television and radio, I can't wait to support and guide you on your writing journey. Writing has always been a passion for me, whether it's crafting a press release, gathering information to include in scripts for live TV news or penning my next novel.
I began writing my first contemporary romance novel in 2011, which then blossomed into The Breathless Series. My debut romance novel, Catch My Breath, was published worldwide in 2014 and the series was completed in 2015.
Writing and creating a story is different for everyone. My goal is to help you connect with and embrace your confidence and immense talent so you can share your gifts with the world.
Sometimes, as writers, we hide to keep from being too seen or judged on our work. It's time to become the magnetic, fascinating, irresistible writer you know you are.
I'm here to help you do just that. I'm here to let you know that if I can do it, you can too.
Still not sure?
You want to be certain this is the right step for you. It may feel like a big risk. If we could meet for lunch or go out for coffee, this is what i’d say. . .
I've been where you are right now. Just like you, I'd written a book that I loved but didn't know what to do with it. Do I keep it for myself? Do I share it with a few close friends? Do I submit it to publishers?
My confidence in my book was sky high. I just didn't have the expertise of someone to lean on who'd been there and navigated all the next steps to tap into. Sure, I figured it all out on my own but I made mistakes (many mistakes), trusted the wrong people, and felt overwhelmed.
Maybe I'm naive but I always believed that writers should lift one another up, dig deep to figure out the parts that didn't go right and celebrate the wins.
You don't have to do this alone. I've come across so many writers who let self-doubt take over, leaving their dreams and aspirations in the dust. This doesn't have to happen. Finding that one person to guide you, believe in you, cheer you on and give you honest advice will make all the difference.
I'd be honored to be that person for you.
Once you apply, we'll have a casual chat to see if we're a good fit for one another. No stress, no pressure.
