Author Accelerator is a book coaching program that gives writers feedback, accountability and support so they can finish their books – and finish strong. We operate in the gap cracked open by savvy indie authors who curate their own team of publishing pros and left open by traditional publishers who no longer offer sustained editorial guidance. Through our human-centered matching process, writers are paired with coaches who understand their genre needs, have an affinity for their topic, and have been trained in the project management skills needed to guide a complex creative project to the end. In addition to landing agents and book deals, writers coming through our program have recently been selected as Pitch Wars mentees, Women’s Fiction Writers’ Association Rising Star finalists, National Independent Writing Award and American Fiction Award for Best New Fiction finalists.
