Recently, as I was walking down the beach and playing in the ocean, I couldn’t stop hearing the message that it was time to really buckle down to write my second book. “Eat with Intention” launched last November and it’s birthing process was long, arduous and at times isolating, I had needed a few months of rejuvenation before I dove straight in to the next one but walking in the ocean that night, I got a rather unexpected idea or assignment you might say. It became so clear that because of my journey these past two years I could tremendously help first time authors write their first book baby with more grace, ease, community and support than I had and really hold the space for their book babies while writing my second. So I ran home and journaled about all of the things that would have made writing my first book SO MUCH EASIER, things that would have made me feel more confident, supported and joyful every step of the way. This is how my LightMaker Book Birthing Club was born.
Are you feeling called to write a book? Do you really want to crystallize your message and your teachings in a really tangible way that people all over the world can get their hands on for a super affordable and accessible price?! Is just reading this activating a tingling in your heart?
I can SO relate. I bet you also have a lot of fears coming up too! Like how about, “but I don’t have a million followers – what’s the point?” or “I have so many ideas, I wouldn’t even know where to start when writing a book?” or maybe even the infamous, “who am I to write a book?”
Well to that last one, who are you NOT to!? You have been given this beautiful life and unique journey to learn your lessons and master your field in such a unique way so that you can help others who relate to your specific flavor of healing. You have a book that’s ready to be born!
For the first two questions, I recorded to YouTube videos to give you my straight shooting answer about my honest opinion before you move any further, if your already thinking “I’m SO ready to do this!!”, scroll down past the videos to find ALL the juicy details about how you can write your book with me in the next 6 months!
SO you’re thinking, “what if this isn’t the right time for me to write my book?” watch below.
“How do I know what book idea to go with first? OR get clarity around what my book should be on?”

WEEKLY accountability check in conference calls where we all check in and share 1) what we committed to accomplishing that week, 2) what we actually did and 3) our next goal for the upcoming week to keep each other honest and moving along!
REAL SUPPORT / the relationships you make in this group will have you with a whole army of supporters who will love sharing about your book when it comes out, i’m sure a lot of you will make great friends and of course, you will have my support when it comes time to share the good word about your book coming out as well as an opportunity should you want me to write something as a supportive quote (which you will find out why getting a bunch of support quotes from people who are respected in your industry or as writers is SO important as we go through! 😉 )
MY EYES + EDITS! As a special bonus, I will be offering 2 edits to everyone who joins, you can use them any step of the way, once you finish your proposal, on your marketing plan or on one of the chapters of your book at any time during the six months and I will read it over and send you a thorough list of notes and edits back!
Your energetic commitment: $197/ month (or pay in full for all six months at once $1,000)
If you’d like to also go even deeper, you can add an hour-long intensive one on one session with me every month to discuss your book as well as anything else that comes up for you in your business/life.
