When you are setting out to publish a book, it feels great knowing that Kim Eldredge is in your court. An experienced author and publisher, Kim always seems eager to share her knowledge with her clients and does so willingly in Brew Your Book Bootcamp.
She asks helpful questions that are great for staying on task in the book-publishing journey. I really appreciated her tips and tricks for learning about becoming a best-selling author and promoting ones’ book.
Before working with Kim, I was overwhelmed with the task of writing a whole book, and did not know where to start. But while working with Kim and learning her system, I learned tools to use when I was stuck, to pinpoint the readers I wanted to reach, a way to “just get the words out”, find my own voice and be inspired to just start so I could spread the message I am very passionate about, and the importance of including my own story in a non-fiction book.
Now, I’m in the writing flow and moving towards finishing the first draft. The most important discovery I am taking away from this process is to allow myself to write whatever comes, nothing is wasted, and that nothing is so bad that it cannot be “fixed” during editing.
I thought I didn’t have anything to write… And that I was light years away from starting to write my book.
I thought it would be hard, complicated, and time consuming.
But Kim’s Book Idea Workbook meant that I didn’t have to start from scratch AND that I didn’t have to guess what my book should be about. She’s right, the idea really is the hardest part. But this workbook makes that easy!
Before working with Kim, writing my ezine was a challenge. My schedule was so packed I never had time to write the articles! Even though I love writing, the ezine was dropping off the ‘to do’ list and postponed regularly to meet current demands.
I teach that an ezine is a great way to nurture your community and I didn’t have the space to do it myself. But I realized how beneficial it would be to have somebody supporting the ezine – making sure it was written, consistent, and reaching my community. That’s when I found Kim.
What is most powerful about working with Kim is having a dedicated person with a clear focus of what I want to communicate to my community. With Kim’s strength as a writer, it makes the whole process faster. And since we’ve started, the ezine has been on schedule and we haven’t missed an issue!
After running into a wall with another publisher I found Kim and she has been great. Under her guidance and tutelage I have one book coming out in early 15 and another by mid year. I am working on a third that should be ready by late 15 or early 16 and I have Kim to thank for it. Her enthusiasm and guidance in helping and encouraging me has opened new doors for me that I am anxious to go through.
Thank you Kim.
My dear friend and partner –
I honestly can’t imagine my biz without you. That says it all.
I found Kim’s Book Idea Workbook is a great resource to begin creating my book. I’d not realized that having the right idea is the starting point to writing my book! It was amazing to me to see how many ideas I did have waiting to be expressed and I thoroughly enjoyed all the exercises.
I felt I was drilling down into my essential message with each exercise, which brought me greater awareness of what I was REALLY enthusiastic to write about, rather than what I should be writing about! I am looking forward to what emerges from these exercises ~ thanks Kim!
I have used other copywriters who just didn’t get the online world of Keywords and how to make the search engines happy.
Kim, understands SEO, writes accordingly and she is also very responsive in changing things at my request.
Kim meets deadlines and is obviously a very conscientious and experienced writer.
I continue to use Kim’s service for blog writing for different clients of Musial Marketing and am now looking at the possibility of her editing my next book.
I would highly recommend Kim’s writing abilities and am very happy with her service and writing capability.
Kim Eldredge is absolutely hands down the best at what she does! She empowers me to tap my creative fire and write from my heart! I’m so excited about publishing my first book with her guidance! She shared her expertise with my group coaching clients and blew us all away with her knowledge, advanced tips, and “real” delivery!
Having Kim as the editor or writer (or in any writing related capacity) on the project will not only elevate the quality but also your peace of mind that your project is in experienced, super competent and ethical hands. That’s what happens to me and I look forward to work with Kim again and again.
I took this course for writing and publishing a cookbook. The material is amazing. I learned more in a few hours than in days reading “how to” articles. It helps having a real person, Kim, speak in real language.
I’m so excited to get going with my publishing! This course offered more information that I expected and all of the information was thoroughly usable.
Points were brought to light that I hadn’t thought of and I’m so excited to get started!
