  Have you been feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of roles you have to play as an author? Do you feel like you’re constantly chasing your tail? Have you felt alone and isolated on your journey…often yearning for guidance and mentoring?


     Well, I’ve got ya covered! It’s not just your imagination. “Author Overwhelm” is very real, my friends! It’s one of my greatest joys to help my author clients go from “stressed to blessed!”


     As a fellow writer and an author coach, I’m here to alleviate your "author overwhelm” and to provide guidance and mentoring along the way…no matter where you are on your author’s journey. Years ago, I identified a gap in the market and dedicated myself to empowering creative minds. There's nothing more gratifying than witnessing fellow artists flourish, have a positive impact on their ideal readers, and share their gifts with the world. My clients have sought me out because they were feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of roles they are required to play along our author's journey. Many were feeling a deep desire to have more guidance and mentoring along the way, someone to help them structure their goals, and encourage them along the way. 

It's an unparalleled joy for me to mentor, coach and cheerlead my clients! I love helping my clients identify the areas they need the most support, empowering them with the tools and skills they need so that they and their stories can SHINE AND SPARKLE IN THE WORLD! 

     I provide a spectrum of services during our coaching sessions which are customized to what each of my clients need. Whether it's helping you identify your irresistible author brand, build your author platform, create a new website or put a finer polish on an already existing one, identify the best keywords and categories for your book, optimize the SEO for your blog and website, launch and grow your email list, create stunning graphics for your promos and events, identify and leverage the ideal social platforms for your brand and books, prepare for a book signing or brainstorm innovative ways to reach your ideal readers, I'll be with you every step of the way! 

     As a coach, my intention is primarily to collaborate with you, teach you the skills you need, help you set goals for yourself, and assist you in the areas where you need the most guidance. We check in as regularly as you need to in order to track your progress, celebrate your wins, and add to your goals. 

     Many of my clients and I have cultivated long term relationships. We meet anywhere from once a week to once every 2-3 weeks depending on what deadlines they are working towards. It is a purely customized approach. 

     The following are just a few of the services I offer depending on my client's needs. After our initial meeting, we will write out your long-term and short-term goals.
I've found from many years of experience that having an accountability partner along the way is essential to professional success and personal fulfillment!

     Which is what we are all striving for! Living an intentional and joyful life!  

      Sparkle On!
  Rachel Sarah

Without Rachel's guidance I wouldn’t have been brave enough to take the next steps along my author journey. We make a powerful TEAM and I look forward to seeing what we will create in the future together.

The Struggle Of
"Author Overwhelm" Is Real,
My Friends.

Do you feel OVERWHELMED AND ALONE on your author's journey?

Do you wish you had MORE GUIDANCE along the way?

Are you feeling confused by the dizzying array of publishing options?

Do you have an amazing book that's going to be published or has already been published but you're struggling to connect with your ideal readers?



Do you feel like there's a missing component to your professional success?

Well, you're not alone. You've come to the right place! 
I've got ya covered!


I've Got Ya' Covered!

Helping you go from "stressed to blessed" on your author's journey!

As a fellow writer/author myself, I know how overwhelming the many roles are that you have to play on this creative journey. Your author brand is a business and many of us were ill-equipped for all that is needed to market ourselves in the world. 
I created this business several years ago because I saw a niche that needed to be filled. I LOVE working with fellow creatives and seeing them achieve success and experience the joy they have when they can share their gifts and stories with the world. 
I have a background in multiple fields (marketing and event promoting, graphic design, website design, photography branding, writing, publishing, teaching, and coaching). I've brought all of these skills together under this one magical umbrella so I can share what I've learned from these fields to help YOU and illuminate the path forward a little more brightly! 
I help authors set their long-term and short-term goals and identify the areas where they need the greatest need for support along their author's journey. Together, we create a plan for success so that you and your stories can get out into the world and make the impact you've dreamt of!

I'm a part branding and marketing mentor, part coach, and part effervescent cheerleader! I'm a BIG FAN of celebrating your wins every step along the way! 

Life is short and you were BORN TO SPARKLE!

I hope you can join me on this MAGICAL JOURNEY!

Sparkle On,
Rachel Sarah
