Catalyst is defined as “a person or thing that precipitates a change.” And that’s what we do. You’ll learn how to stop those limiting thoughts (writers can be so mean to themselves!) so you keep moving forward toward your goal. Without a coach or catalyst, you might just daydream about writing a book. Or, as we’ve seen so many times, you might lose confidence or write slowly and lose your passion, your unfinished manuscript growing dusty in a desk drawer.

With The Book Catalysts, you can become the writer you’ve always wanted to be, producing the book you’ve thought about for years. We’ve “precipitated change” in 100+ clients, helping them take that next step and the next—until they become the writer they’ve always wanted to be. And when they’ve finished their manuscript, we’re right there with them, editing and polishing their book so it stands out in the marketplace.

“Virginia … weaves her tremendous writing skill with a great deal of
understanding and patience. I’ll not write another book without her.”
Dr. Kay Potetz, Take it Back! Your Power, That is
