This Perfect Author Retreat Explores

One day virtual retreat from the comfort of your own home or office

A structured environment conducive to writing with the opportunity to significantly begin or complete your book

A strategic plan for writing your book, with clarity about your thesis, alignment with your business plan, identification of your target reader, and strategic objectives

Awareness of your mindset blocks and strategies to remove them

Connection and community with like-minded individuals who are working on their nonfiction books for resources on best- and current-practices

Insights on self-publishing so that you can identify your publishing strategy and the tools and resources to get you across the finish line

Access to Cathy and her faculty throughout the retreat

Cathy’s coaching and workshop has been a game changer in not only moving the book forward but in bringing relevant tips and techniques that I immediately put into practice. Additionally, Cathy brought professional and acclaimed authors to the retreat. They all shared their own useful tools and secrets for success. I honestly feel like I received another college degree in writing in one retreat.

Don’t let the virtual concept scare you away. It turned out to be fun and a brilliant structure that resulted in getting even more accomplished while saving on travel time and expenses! Thanks Cathy!
