Burnt out on writing? Ready to be done with it all? If so, you're in the right place.
There’s no question the publishing world has changed–A LOT–and those changes are impacting authors more and more. So if you’re feeling stressed out and overwhelmed, you’re not alone! I’m ready to help you dive deep and find the answers, but first let’s answer the most important question–is your writing burning you out or are you burnt out because of everything that goes along with writing?
I help authors define their own unique publishing path to keep them writing and enjoying their work. To do this, I use my over two decades as a published author to offer services designed to reduce overwhelm and keep authors focused on what matters to them in order to cultivate holistic wellness, prevent and overcome burnout, and create their own publishing paradigm so they can thrive as author in today’s publishing world.
You started writing because you loved the stories you were telling. You didn’t do this to become a marketer, a publisher, a publicist, an editor, and you certainly didn’t intend to make writing no different than a corporate treadmill–running faster and never getting anywhere for little, if any, recognition.
So are you burnt out on writing? Or is it everything else that goes with writing burning you out?

Get help with technical things like your website and newsletter to take more OFF your plate.

The truth is
The current publishing paradigm treats books like “widgets” produced in a factory and authors like assembly line workers.
That’s a recipe designed to create chronic stress and burnout!
And for authors chronic stress causes
Loss of joy and diminished creativity
Feeling like you have to do more with less resources
(and yes, burnout!)
Hi. I’m Kit,
Your Creative Wellness Coach.
I’m here to help you thrive as an author so you can keep doing what you love–tell stories.
I’ve written over 100 novels in multiple genres (under multiple pen names) and worked with over 10 publishers (some of the biggest and best known of their time), and you don’t do that without learning a thing or three about cultivating your own path and avoiding burnout. From publisher implosions to internet typhoons, to industry drama and the advent of ebooks–I’ve written through it all and now I’m here to help you do the same.
I provide technical services to take some of the hard stuff off your plate and classes to help you navigate both the writing and everything that comes with writing. And for those who want to go deep and really kick burnout to the curb–forever–I’m a creative and holistic wellness coach. Whether you’re looking for the drive thru version or the five-course meal, I’ve got you covered. And I can’t wait to work with you!
You could stay stuck on the write – publish – promote treadmill and get (or remain) burned out OR YOU COULD
craft the publishing path that works for you and keeps you telling the stories you were meant to tell.

Why Authors Should Check Out Mastodon
Starting any new social media platform can be daunting. And with Mastodon, it appears to be more daunting than most. However, with the uncertainty surrounding Twitter, having something on hand to replace it might be a good idea. And there are some valid reasons why...
Twitter is a Real Time Lesson In Why Authors Need Their Own Platform
By now I'm sure you've heard that Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter is going about as well as a car with four flat tires, no gas, and is currently on fire on the edge of some big interstate in California. And that's probably being optimistic about it. However, change is...
