AUTHOR SUPPORT

Many people have a story in their heart, but don’t know the path to share it with the world. My purpose is to give you a road map to achieve your writing goals no matter how big they are.

‘”THERE IS NO GREATER AGONY THAN BEARING AN UNTOLD STORY INSIDE YOU.”

– MAYA ANGELOU

 

After a decade of fulfilling my wildest ambitions of publishing my own books (and this passion leading to me meeting my celebrity crush BILLY ZANE, a story for another day), I decided to share my knowledge with other writers. Throughout my career, I’ve learned how to fail forward, and I’ll be sharing those experiences with you, too. 

People are so creative and I often find myself completely engrossed in their passion. It reminds me of my early days as a writer. But after the fire is expelled they sigh and say, “I don’t have time to write” or “I don’t even know where to start.” and “It would make a great story but…” and enter every excuse they have.

The only one stopping them is themselves. 

It is proven that more people stick with an exercise routine when they hire a coach to keep them accountable. They are investing money into themselves and that monetary commitment keeps them on track to reach their wildest dreams.

I want everyone to have the opportunity to experience the success I have in writing.  So, whether you’re in the process of writing your first novel or feel lost on the promotion process, I’m here to work through it with you. Once upon a time, I was just a lost woman with a crazy dream. Now it’s your turn to make your dream a reality.

I can help you make it happen.

Consider me your writing trainer. I will make sure you show up day in and out to get the job done (with more grace than that of a drill sergeant). I also offer a strong considerate perspective.

Goal Setting

Determining Genre

Dacia is always focused and straightforward in her interactions and awareness of what needs to be done. She listens to understand, not to respond, which allows her a depth of understanding that few achieve.

J.T. Evans, author, The Griffin’s Feather

Dacia was published when we met, and she's always exuded an assertive confidence and focus, which has enabled her to actualize her goals in a way that I admire. Equally, Dacia is vulnerable and compassionate as evidenced by the empathy and support she's showed me in the wake of my husband's death. If I was going to hire a writing coach, I'd need someone sensitive but motivating. Dacia's that person.

Amy Delcambre, President @ Mobile Writer’s Guild

Dacia is a true professional with a wonderful eye for great writing—and an excellent understanding of what it takes for good writing to become great. She’s ultimately one of the best people to have in your corner and has so much to offer budding—and experienced—writers looking to take their work to the next level!

Becky LeJeune, Associate Agent @ Bond Literary

Dacia made me feel seen and understood.

John Urbancik, author of Choose Your Doom

Every conversation I have with Dacia is a wonderful mix of fun, deep, and effective. She communicates her thoughts clearly and is always reliable to answer my messages. She knows how to get shit done, and she is straight forward in a kind and thoughtful way.

Jenn Clark, Visual Designer & Strategist  @ JC Design and Media

Dacia’s knowledge of the writing world and the intricate details within, are inspiring. She holds confidence not only with herself, but while leading others. She’s a very straightforward, critical thinker and she’s super friendly. You can always count on her!

Tiffany Doran, author of Desires of the Heart

Dacia relates to others in an easy and thoughtful manner, always noticing the unnoticeable. She gives it to you straight, with kindness and caring, and helps you recognize your traits and truth along the way!

Echo Peyer, Resiliency Trainer @ Life of Echo

Dacia gave one of my books a beta read/critique that was thorough and very helpful. Her feedback was valuable and straightforward, and she was communicative throughout. She knows the writing business and has an eye for picking out issues and standout information.

Shannon Lawrence, author of The Business of Short Stories

You might be wondering…

DO I NEED A WRITING COACH?

 

The biggest difference between a life coach, a fitness coach and a writing coach is the Return on Investment. Books are not just an accomplishment. They are a stream of income. The only books that don’t sell are the ones that are never written. 

Don’t let your dreams go stale. Let me help you bring your story to life.

 

I’m ready when you are! Your success is right around the corner.
