How would it feel to be surrounded by your friends and family at your first book signing?
I can tell you, it feels amazing.
Although I’ve published 4 books now, the last book was the hardest. It took me years, three different editors, and a total throwing out of the first manuscript. Ask any author and they will tell you a similar story.
Getting your book out and published isn’t for the faint of heart, but it is so worth it! When my parents and family were there at my book launch party I felt so proud to be able to share the moment with them.
IF YOU ARE CALLED TO WRITE A BOOK, THEN IT’S TIME TO GET IT DONE!
You probably have a great story to share, some wisdom or a plan to help others. There are people who need your message. If you aren’t sure if writing is for you I’d tell you just to start writing. You can use it all, in videos, in sales copy, and to hone and refine your thinking.
There are plenty of other ways to get your message out, but the important part is to get it out! Even if you don’t know where and when or how to write your book, I invite you to at least join our virtual writing retreats and explore with us. I’ve been on this journey and I can push, help and support you on yours.

“Michelle has an understanding of Amazon that trumps anybody else’s I know. That’s why I nicknamed her the “Amazon Whisperer!” If you are selling a book online and need somebody to show you the ropes, don’t walk, but run to Michelle Vandepas.”

With some laser coaching and tweaking from Michelle, I was able to greatly improve the ranking of my Amazon book from being in the thousands to double digits in just a few days!
Michelle provided feedback on the cover, copy formatting and all the book and author details that Amazon has available to help to get books to best seller status.
This book for me was a bit of an experiment to learn the Amazon process as well as create a cool handout/giveaway for my coaching business; I first published it in 2015, but the cool thing is you can always update, refresh and relaunch your book on Amazon relatively easily.
The first version took me just two days to write and submit for publishing! Literally over a weekend I had “author” status – how cool is that??
