And after working with more than 100 books during my more-than-14 years in the publishing industry, I know why. It's not time, skill, or even discipline—it's accountability.
You don't need another course or a writing retreat. You need someone to simplify the process, mentor you, and share industry secrets for success as an author.
That's where the Idea-to-Draft Accelerator comes in—
I get messages nearly every day from driven people who struggle to follow through on their dream of writing a book.
Think of me as your expert guide, your biggest supporter, and your coach who cares deeply about helping you finally write a book that will catapult you toward your purpose. Whether you're unsure of your book idea or 20,000 words in, I've got you. Along with providing a step-by-step process to write your book, I'll mentor you as you build your brand, develop your author platform, and make the impact you're meant to make on this world.
Plus, you’ll be journeying alongside a curated, world-changing cohort of motivated future authors. Powerful.
Go from idea to draft in 6 months!
My background includes:
MY BACKGROUND INCLUDES:
Award-winning, best-selling author or ghostwriter of 17 books and contributor to more than 100 books
Why I'm the coach to guide you
So let's get started!
The program begins September 12, 2023, and the group caps at 16 people. We'll meet twice a month for coaching and support to keep you accountable toward your goals—including finishing that first draft and planning the next steps for your book.
Throughout the 6 months, we’ll follow an education and writing plan to support your success. At the start of the program, you'll create a time-anchored project plan. I'll request regular updates along the way.
Alongside my own experience building my business and brand, I work with some of the best people in the world in speaking, marketing, publishing, media, and more. I'll be bringing in special guests throughout the program.

“Stacy is brilliant! I don’t think of myself as a structured person, and yet with Stacy’s help, I developed a repeatable process for creative time every day to allow me to efficiently and successfully create.”
Amy Lafko deeply engaged in the book-writing process, pushing herself to define her ideal client and understand how to have the greatest impact. She is now a sought-after organizational design and leadership expert, niche thought leader, and best-selling author.
"I had two great Alaska Leadership Adventure clients last month. They both came because of the book. I am grateful for you!"
Mike Green was all in during the book-writing process and wrote a powerful book that captures his personal story and leadership philosophy. He moved to Alaska and now runs a successful leadership coaching business that includes transformative Alaskan adventures.
“Stacy to the rescue! She made everything so easy. I wholeheartedly recommend her. I knew I needed help writing a book on my marketing methodology. She guided me with her thoughtful process and coaching, and now my book is being published by a highly competitive publisher. I have been able to expand into other offerings, increasing my income and influence.”
Christina Del Villar wrote her book while transitioning from corporate to founding her own business. Christina's best-selling book, Sway, positioned her as a sought-after thought leader in marketing. She's been featured on Forbes, CNBC's Acorns, Rockstar CMO podcast, and more—and has grown her business alongside her brand.
Along the way, my income doubled and doubled again.
My latest coauthored book became a #1 bestseller alongside books by Brené Brown, Rachel Hollis, and Stephen Covey.
I’ve now written or ghostwritten 17 books and flown all over the world delivering keynotes and trainings—and have influenced thousands through my writing and speaking.
And I’m convinced that’s all because I was brave enough to sit down, write, and publish my first book. My life would be completely different if I hadn’t said “yes” to that book and stepped into my purpose.
When I started writing my first book in 2012, I doubted my ideas, expertise, and story. Self-doubt stalled my success. But even though I was afraid of failure (and success), I wrote it anyway. And then I wrote another book. And another.
You're in the right place.
I’ve been right where you are now.
