Book Coach Lisa TenerHello, I’m Lisa Tener, an award-winning book-writing coach, published author and blogger. For many years now, I’ve been fortunate to work with people in all areas of the publishing industry, particularly writers who have an important story to tell or information to share with the world. These new writers are passionate about making a difference in the lives of people and are eager to learn more about how to write a book. Some are just beginning to envision their book; others are well along in the process of writing a book.

I’ve created this website – “How to Write a Book” – as a place where writers of memoir, how-to and self-help books, as well as fiction, can learn from and share with other writers and with readers. The Author Interviews you’ll find here every other week, conducted by contributing writers, are intended to provide both inspiration and practical tips on writing a book. I hope you will find ideas to jumpstart your own creative process and insights on how to stay motivated while writing a book.

The forum provided by “How to Write a Book” is intended to build a supportive writing community. I invite you to ask questions, leave comments – ENGAGE! Not every author we feature in our Interviews will have time to respond, but some will and we hope our readers will engage each other in conversation as well.

“Can I Write a Book?”

Micaela Karlsen wrote her book proposal for A Plant-Based Life in my Bring Your Book to Life(R) Program and worked with me to fine tune it. I introduced her to a top NYC literary agent and the rest is history!

As a book writing coach, I’ve helped many people find their voice and tell their story, some of whom went on to secure 5- and 6-figure book deals with major publishers. Others realized their ambition of self-publishing a book or an e-book, many of which have won prestigious book awards. Some of them will share their stories in coming Author Interviews. Their dreams of publishing all began with that one powerful question – “Can I write a book?” – and the answer was YES!

If you are considering writing a book but don’t know how to begin, take a look at the information I’ve provided on how to write a book. This page outlines the process and the issues you will need to consider.
