At The Book Midwife, we help aspiring authors get their books out of their heads and into the world.
Most people who want to write a book never even start. They don't know where to start or how to start. They have massive self-doubt about their ability to write a book, and they don't know if their idea is any good. Some people start writing a book, but never get to the finish line. That self-doubt creeps in, they get lost or run out of ideas, or life just gets in the way.
We believe that every book deserves to be written, and every aspiring author deserves the pride that comes with bringing your best book to life. Many of our clients are business leaders who benefit from increased visibility and credibility, as well as bit of fame and fortune, when their book comes out.
I'm Mindy Gibbins-Klein, founder of The Book Midwife, and I know just how hard it can be to achieve the dream of writing a book. My first book took me ten years to plan, write and finally publish. That's just too long! I set up this coaching company to help as many people as possible to get their books written, and to do it faster and better than they would on their own.
"Every book deserves to be written"
We've grown the team of certified coaches and have helped over one thousand people to plan and write their books. Wow - that sounds impressive, even to me. But there are billions of aspiring authors out there, so our work is not done. We now want to grow the team of coaches so we can help even more people to write more books that help even more people...
Over the years, we have helped a number of authors on a pro bono basis, when they didn't have the means to pay for the coaching. There are a lot of other deserving people out there, with amazing stories and insights and wisdom. If we win, we want to use the financial support and resources to donate even more of our time and help even more people with important stories to tell, regardless of their means.
