Book Coaching with Katie

Hi, I'm Katie Wall. I'm an Author Accelerator certified book coach and have more than 10 years of experience working with authors.

I help writers who want to tell stories that resonate on a deep emotional level with their readers. My ideal client writes in hopes of making an impact on the world—whether via traditional or small press publication—one reader at a time.

If there’s a little voice inside of you screaming, “Me! That’s me! I want to write an amazing story that changes the world!” then I can’t wait to join you on this adventure!

“Your coaching is both motivational and indispensable.

I can't imagine finishing this book without you.”

Ashley Campbell

I specialize in fantasy and science fiction, but I also enjoy working with other genres, such as contemporary fiction. I primarily work with authors who are writing manuscripts for young adult, new adult, and adult audiences.

While I would love to help every author on their journey, there are some genres I do not work with as I cannot maintain a level of expertise in every genre. At this point in time, I don't work with Children's literature (picture books, Middle Grade), erotica, horror, or literary fiction. And while I greatly enjoy reading nonfiction and memoir, I am not currently trained in those areas and so do not feel I am the best fit to coach writers of those types of manuscripts.

"Katie can zero in on everything that is holding back a book's potential, and give you clear pointers on how to fix these things. Katie clearly has the heart for books, which is why she can expertly help you see through the blockages and get to the heart of your story!"

In my book coaching practice I am dedicated to:

  • Giving honest and constructive feedback—I care deeply about you and your story, and my feedback reflects this.
  • Building confidence in writers—I will help you grow as a writer in general while we work together to make your current manuscript stronger.
  • Really listening to you about your writing dreams and your story—in our conversations I will reflect what I hear and help you dig deep to find the core of why you write and what the heart of your story is.

"My book was in rough shape when I shared it with the Craft Better Books team. It's still a work in progress, but I now feel armed with a load of incredible feedback regarding plot, story progression, and pacing issues to look out for while revising. Their help and extra attention has made all the difference in my rewrite."
