New York, New York, Feb. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Writing a book can be a daunting task – to say the least. Crafting hundreds of pages and tens of thousands of words is by no means an easy feat. At least on your own, that is. Like anything in life, the fastest and most efficient way to reach your goal is to find someone who’s already done it, and learn from them. This particularly holds true if you’re one of the brave few to embark on the journey of writing a book. According to Boost Media Agency, if you’re serious about having your book to the standard of publishing, you need the help of a coach. Each with their own unique experiences and areas of expertise, here we present the 10 book coaches to watch in 2021.

Jas Rawlinson (@jas_rawlinson)
Jas Rawlinson is a best-selling author, memoir book coach, and speaker who empowers purpose-driven women to transform their life stories into books that change lives and leave a legacy. Growing up in a small valley community, Jas first fell in love with the power of storytelling as a young girl living in a home with family violence. “Writing was my safe place,” she says. “A home for unspoken thoughts and a world where I didn’t have to feel afraid.” It was at the age of just 10, that she made herself a promise: to one day use her voice to support survivors and victims of domestic violence. In 2016 she fulfilled this mission as the co-founder of Brisbane’s first ever permanent domestic violence memorial.
Inspired to create further change, Jas began to speak more publicly about her mental health journey, including the loss of her father to suicide when she was just 18. Over the course of a year she began interviewing Australians from all walks of life about their own life journeys, eventually publishing these stories in what has since become a best-selling book series read across three continents and endorsed by global influencers like Kevin Hines.
Through her work as a book coach and best-selling author, Jas has empowered thousands to recognise their worth, and has assisted dozens of trauma survivors to write and publish their stories. Whilst many coaches focus solely on strategy, much of Jas’ success comes from her dedication to supporting each author through the emotional journey of their story, as well as her ability to relate to clients of many different life experiences.
