write books that matter, write books they are passionate about and write books that sell.
Are you ready to become an emPowered Writer?
I’m guessing you have a dream to write and publish a book? Maybe this dream has made it to your bucket list! Or you have a message that the world needs and one that you feel called to share. Possibly you have that writing itch … you know, that feeling deep within that is calling you to write something meaningful and you just can’t move on without doing so. Or you see what a book can do for you personally and professionally. Maybe you are wanting to start a business or elevate an existing one, and you know a book has power.
Listen, I understand, and I get it. In fact, I get you because I am you. However, from my personal experience, I know just how powerful a book can be and just how important having a marketing mindset is from the very beginning. And that’s where I come in. Hey, I’m Stephanie, your book marketing coach!
I love books. I love authors. And I love helping authors market their books! As the founder and chief strategist of the emPower PR Group, I help nonfiction authors write books that sell, promote books to those who need them and will buy them, and build meaningful businesses around empowering messages. I’m an author myself of two books and bring my personal experience to this program and every author I work with!
When people find out I’ve authored two of my own books, I get asked a slew of questions … ones that uncovered for me a group of very excited and nervous thought leaders who subconsciously knew that there’s a step that comes before marketing a book … and that is writing a book.
Regularly, I get asked questions such as:
Hey Stephanie, I think I want to write a book but how do I make that happen? Or, you know, I have a book I’ve written but I haven’t a clue what the next step is! Help! My favorite question is usually this one: Will anyone want to read or buy my book? (It’s my favorite because it’s the one we are all asking ourselves but only a select few voice it!). Or let’s toss this one out there: How in the world do I get published? And, in my opinion possibly the most important question, how will you go about selling your finished masterpiece?
Writing a book can seem dreamy, and yet, when you embark on the journey, it can become downright daunting. I know this because I’ve lived it, myself. And if I learned anything in my personal process from writing to publishing it’s the power of having the right people supporting me along the way. That’s why we have The emPowered Writer, a signature program of ours here at the emPower PR Group.
I’ve had the chance to work with many nonfiction authors in various stages of their book dreams, and what I’ve come to find as the key differentiator between just any book and a book that changes lives (and sells as well) is this …
Many people write their book; but those who are successful write their book for others.

Frequently Asked Questions
Writing a book is overwhelming. I get it. I know it. I’ve lived it. And because of that, I’ve created this program in a way that prioritizes your efforts in a streamlined approach to help you find space to accomplish your goals but breathe in the process. My goal is for you to make progress in a methodical way that will help you get across the finish line while still having balance in your personal and professional life.
To accomplish this, each week you will have a focused priority and theme. Regular weekly emails from us will keep you focused and new self-guided content within the program unlocks each week after you have completed the previous week’s focus. This is on purpose, allowing you to remain fully focused on what matters that week and not feel like you have to be on a sprint to get it all accomplished. Remember, writing a good book that will sell is a marathon (a 3-month marathon if we get to work together!).
Individuals who take part in The emPowered Writer program should set aside a few hours each week to complete the self-guided content and associated reflection and an extra hour every-other week for 1:1 coaching. Setting aside regular time will allow you the time you need to reflect on your manuscript and/or other key elements of your writing and publishing journey and adapt accordingly. While time investment is unique to each person, making the commitment to this program and your book’s growth (and your own) is pivotal to the success you are seeking. Don’t short-change yourself! However, this program was designed with the busy person in mind, so rest assured that you will still be able to find balance while in this program.
The emPowered Writer program is meant to help you take your book from good to great … from a book you are excited about to a book you are proud of … from something you wrote because you felt you needed to accomplish to a book that others will invest their time and money in.
To get the most out of this program, it is encouraged that a solid first draft of your manuscript in place before jumping into this program. There is a difference between a book coach and a book marketing coach. This program isn’t a book coaching program (however if you need that support let us know and we’d be happy to introduce you to some amazing book coaches for you to consider). Instead, this program is designed by a book marketer with the intention of ensuring that your book is a marketable book, and with the guidance in place to help you start to build an author platform now, while you perfect your book at the same time.
This is a great question! While The emPowered Writer is designed as a 3-month program, some aspiring authors may find that they are seeking different support within a different timeframe. No worries! We are happy to meet you where you are and see how we can best help.
To get the most out of The emPowered Writer, you’ll want to take part in the 3-month experience. However, you can also gather strategic insights through a 1-hour strategy call with Stephanie and/or a VIP day where you get 5 hours of dedicated Stephanie-time just for you. The best way to figure out what option will help you achieve your goals is to hop on a quick 15-minute chat and see what will work best for you.
Goodness, no! It’s my opinion that every author invests in a round of book editing to ensure that the mechanics of their manuscript are polished and pristine. There are two types of formal book editing – developmental and line editing. The manuscript review included in this program includes a marketer’s perspective developmental editing. When I take a peek at your manuscript and provide a detailed follow-up, you can expect feedback as it relates to making your book more marketable to your target audience, speaking to their pain points and needs. These are things that they will invest in solutions for! While some grammatical editing could be provided in this review, a full line editing is not to be expected. However, we’d love to help you find the best editor for you should you want that support as well.
This is a critical discussion in The emPowered Writer program as publishing is no longer a one-size-fits-all. Rest assured that we have an entire week dedicated to helping you better understand the publishing landscape and a 1:1 coaching discussion to identify the best publishing approach to help you meet your needs and goals. The quick answer to this question is that it depends!
The emPowered Writer is created to help you get your manuscript ready for publishing. At the end of the 3-month program, you will be ready to work with a literary agent if you opt for the traditional publishing approach, to be introduced to collaborative or hybrid publishers, or to tackle self-publishing. I happily offer virtual introductions to help you get published, whichever approach you opt to take.
The emPowered Writer is a 3-month program with the investment of $1,000/month. Individuals in the program will be set up for recurring payment the first of each month to align with the program’s investment price.
Yay! Let’s do this! Take a moment to schedule a quick chat so that we can determine when to start the program together and then we can get to work.
Great question! That’s when the fun really begins (in my humble opinion). The emPowered Author and The emPowered Authorpreneur programs are also signature offerings here at the emPower PR Group and may be just what you are looking for to help launch your book and maintain marketing momentum for years following! Let’s chat when you are ready to take that next leap.
The first step in becoming an emPowered Writer (and then an emPowered Author) is believing that you are worthy, you are worth it, and you have a message that the world needs to hear.
Remember, while many people want to write a book, only a few ever will. It’s not easy, but it can be done with purpose. And us here at the emPower PR Group are ready to help you.
