Camille Pagán

: The Author Coach

Coaching Philosophy

I help you write and sell your book—and use the process to create an even better career before you draft the very first page.

An estimated 80 to 90 percent of people want to write a book; less than .1 percent will actually do it. But with the right systems and support, you can absolutely become a published author—even if you’re not sure whether you’re a "good" writer. That’s why my coaching combines savvy publishing strategies with powerful mindset shifts.

Writing a book changes your life in ways you can only begin to imagine. People often think that going for their big publishing goals means putting everything else on hold. The opposite is true. My clients regularly lose weight, increase their income, and improve their relationships with their partners and children—often without trying. When you show up for your dreams, it’s impossible not to make positive changes in other areas, too.

Work with Me

I work with a small number of writers each quarter. We’ll meet one-on-one each week for four months and create a personalized roadmap for achieving your writing and publishing goals.

There’s something powerful about partnering with someone who’s actively doing the same work you are. I’m not like most book coaches you’ll find—because I didn’t quit writing to coach. Every day, I sit down at my desk to write, market my writing, and build my brand. Whether you’re an aspiring author or are already published, I know exactly what you’re dealing with and how to make all aspects of the process easier and more enjoyable.

In addition to being a certified coach, I’m the #1 Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestselling author of seven books that have sold more than a half a million copies and have been translated into 20 languages, and a former journalist and nonfiction ghostwriter who has contributed to The New York Times, Time, Real Simple, and many others. My mission is to help writers succeed.
