Book Coaching & Editing for Changemakers

A book or e-book is a great way to share your experience and insights, bring more visibility to your business or cause, and establish yourself as a passionate authority. With the expanding universe of independent publishing (a.k.a. self-publishing), the world is now your oyster. How do you make this opportunity work for you and/or your organization?

I was pleased to contribute to the Author Learning Center, an online learning community for book authors. In the first of four interviews, I discuss the three secrets of authors who use their books to influence social change. You can see this 2 1/2-minute video for free here:

The other 3 brief videos cover:

1) Making YouTube Work for You

2) Independent Publishing for Nonprofits

3) Repurposing Your Book Content

Other Authors have said:

skye book “I very much appreciate Dalya’s editing expertise and, equally important, her coaching. Thanks to her coaching my manuscript doesn’t read like a collection of blog posts–it’s really a GOOD read and valuable resource. She is a pleasure to work with, too.” – Skye Ward, Author, Skyeview: A Sistah’s View of the World, Paris Chapter
 bone_halth_made_easy2 “Dalya Massachi received my rather jumbled, convoluted, original draft.  She then converted it all quite efficiently into a form that was ultimately much more appropriate and appealing to the many who can now benefit.  I LOVE the result!” – Dr. Ken Howayeck, author, Bone Health Made Easy
 001 “Dalya’s insight and honesty were tremendously helpful from the beginning–when she very aptly advised me to start over–through completion, as she artfully pointed out whenever I had gone off course. Her edits were skillful, minimally invasive and maximally supportive, helping me to say what I was trying to say in a more engaging way. I really enjoyed being in touch with Dalya throughout the longer-than-anticipated time it took to complete my work and recommend her highly.”  – Elaine Pierce, author of the forthcoming book, Deep Green Yoga.
 move_our_message2 “Dalya Massachi served as editor for my book, and she did an outstanding job.” –  Susan Strong, Author, Move Our Message! How to Get America’s Ear: A Handbook for Progressives
