Author mentoring, publishing consulting, book marketing and book publicity services

Writers, I’m here to help in ways little and large.

  • Someone to answer your random writing and publishing questions
  • Publishing advice including potential pathways
  • Non-fiction manuscript guidance
  • Author mentoring
  • Self-publishing knowledge and services
  • Referrals to service providers
  • Motivation
  • Nerve-settling
  • A shoulder
  • Book distribution strategies
  • Author marketing ideas
  • Book marketing and book publicity plans
  • Some fun!

How I can help you and your book:

  • One-off calls (stack your questions up so we can cover them in either 30 minute or 1 hour consults (phone call or Zoom). You can book this in now so we can get cracking! (If the times don’t suit, get in touch and we can organise something that does).
  • Buy a block of time if you prefer email correspondence and we’ll get as much done as we can.
  • Longer term mentoring – a combination of calls, emails, texts and face-to-face meet ups depending on your needs and publishing stage. You’re able to book in 5-hour or 10-hour blocks and use as needed…whether it be a quick email, a longer call, me preparing a plan for you etc.
  • It’s a great idea to start by reading ‘Look-It’s Your Book!‘ (available here, via booksellers and your local library) – this may answer many of your questions anyway!
  • Through on-demand courses at Bold Authors

What you’ll get:

  • Practical, honest and creative answers
  • A current, Australian and international perspective
  • Confidentiality
  • Ideas and inspiration
  • A way forward
  • I might even suggest you work with someone else who’s a better fit – I just want you and your book to have the best journey possible.

What authors say about working with me:

Anna, you’ve been a nurturer, cheerleader and rocket up my backside to get me motivated to find a way for SPLIT to make it into the world…I have been able to strive ahead and do all that I have – not only because you were a great resource I could rely on, but your warm personality helped me to believe in myself… Maggie Walters, author, SPLIT

Your advice has been both practical and encouraging for my heart. Tatum Lawn, poet.

Your insight was incredibly valuable, I now feel like I have some semblance of focus! A.B, journalist and author-to-be


I’m here to help and I absolutely love doing so. Make the most of me!
