You + Author Planning = everything you need to get started!

Maybe you've thought ::  planning isn't for you because it's too overwhelming and too structured. 

Or maybe it :: feels hopeless because you've tried planning before and it just didn't stick.

Either way, I designed Author Planning with simple to follow steps and a workbook to guide you through the process.


We’ll cover the details that make a huge difference in your writing career. 


This is the type of information that you can’t google, you don’t know about it, and when you sign with a publisher, it hits you in the face… 


  • How do you prepare for your book launch?
  • When is the best time to start building your author platform? 
  • Who’s the best person to promote your book?
  • What’s the best way to market your book?
  • Other than writing, what do you need to have handy for your publisher?
  • What planning process works for writers? 


So many questions, and I’m here to guide you through the process so that you can be prepared and save time, money, and your anxiety level.

A Note From Elke...

When I started out as a fiction writer, my dream was to write books, tour around the world, and be the next Nora Roberts.

There was only one problem. I couldn't finish any of the books I started. 

I realized I didn't have a real plan, so I tried all the planning strategies, but I quickly discovered many of them just didn't work for me and my ADD brain. On this journey, I discover I had to create a plan that worked for me.  

As a fiction book coach, and author myself, I use this strategy in all areas of my writing life and encourage other writers do reach for the same, because let's face it, it has to fit your life and YOU.
