Book Shepherd Program

Donna Dahl Launches Book Shepherd Program

Donna Dahl is an empowerment coach, inspirational speaker and writes books on self-empowerment.

When it comes to coaching writing, ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL!  Some writers want the coaching emphasis to be on getting started and some writers want detailed long-term support with editing and counsel.

When you work with Donna Dahl as your book shepherd, she tailors her coaching to meet your individual needs. You choose the focus from a broad selection of possibilities which include but are not limited to blogs, short stories, novellas, book-length manuscripts, and character development. Some have sought Donna out to get help with writing their bios, their press releases or their resumes. Whether your undertaking is 500 words or 50,000 words, Donna is skilled at helping you develop your writing project from stuck to start and start to finish.

Are you an author with a story waiting to appear in print? Are you a grandparent with a legacy story that deserves to be handed down in writing? Are you a corporation with a backstory that your clientele would appreciate? Clients receive one-on-one personalized writing coaching through a variety of channels: email, phone and internet video communication.  Some writers are more like the Hare in Aesop’s Fable and some are more like the Tortoise. Some writers just want to sleep through the middle and make a sprint to the finish line and others want to savour every word as though it were wrapped in whipped cream and caramel.

Whatever your objective…whatever your timelines for completion, Donna’s process will accommodate your needs. Whatever your needs—be they written or verbal commentaries, you get to set the priorities. Most choose a combination of regular coaching sessions, editing support and email responses to questions. Project and monthly rates available. What would work best for you?

Donna’s editing services include everything from simple grammar to comprehensive word by word and line-by-line analysis. She tackles issues of continuity, character flaws, and voice with ease. Whether your work is research-based and non-fiction or it is derived from imagination, it matters not.  Donna has this uncanny ability to step into your world and walk the journey of your words with you. Donna reports, “A professional writer who calls on me from time to time to review his work gave me the title of Book Shepherd. I am a huge admirer of his work. He continues to find my commentaries of significant value”.

As to Donna’s celebrated ability to coach as well as write, she was awarded Woman of Inspiration for Lifetime Achievement in 2016. Her book, Lessons I Learned from the Tortoise, has received numerous five-star reviews on Amazon.  If you are an author looking at the world of self-publishing, Donna’s experience may prove invaluable. She has already self-published five books.

Donna’s Book Shepherd Program is for authors at every stage of the process. Her clients include people from a broad cross-section of the population including CEOs, trainers, memoir writers, researchers and storytellers who are emerging from realms such as the oil and gas industry to psychology and from the environment to science fiction. Whether your first book is still giving birth to an idea or whether you have already begun your manuscript, working with Donna to self-publish your story…fiction or non-fiction…adult or other…you, too, could be an author proudly displaying your finished volume.
