Gained Absolute Clarity on Book Ideas
I engaged Helena Bouchez as a coach and developmental editor to help me explore several non-fiction book ideas. Within just a few calls, she was able to identify the core message I wanted to convey and then help me to see it. Our conversations, which took place periodically for the better part of a year, allowed me to gain absolute clarity on what I wanted to say and how best to deliver it, and validate the idea with others to determine if there was sufficient need and interest in the topic.

Entrepreneur Looking to Write a Book?
“Helena was amazing. First, she helped me come up with a plan for the book. Then she got to work interviewing me and reading massive amounts of existing content to get to a first draft, which allowed me to see the potential to extend the material into other products, including a coaching program. She totally got it and made adjustments so the book would synch up with that vision. She also continued to interview contributors and add links and content up to the 11th hour because she understood what I was trying to do. Entrepreneur looking to writing a book? Get with Helena. She’s the best.” Watch the video testimonial here.

From Big Idea to Book in Hand
“The idea of writing a book was daunting. I had never authored anything other than a few trade journal articles. However, Helena made writing a book not only less daunting but fun. She helped shape my thoughts and put the content in a logical order. From structure, ghostwriting, editing, layout, design–even printing and creating an audio version–Helena was there to assist and bring in experts when needed. There is no way I could have created a book while still working full time without her expertise and counsel. I can’t encourage potential writers enough to partner with Helena on your book project. It will be twice as fun and get done in half the time.” Watch the video testimonial here.

The Book Got Done!
“Frank Blau is my mentor and I love, love, love him, and he had asked me to help him write his biography. I did all the interviews and got all this information, and I could not pull a book together. Years went by and my integrity was on the line! I was soooo frustrated. Luckily, I found Helena. She helped me get this book done and on the page. The process of working with her was so easy, so much easier than the struggle I was going through. So do yourself a favor: do what Helena tells you to do. Let her help you get that book out of you and onto the page and to honor — your story or someone else’s. Thanks Helena!” Watch the video testimonial here.

Before the Deadline
“If you don’t know the world of writing a book, it’s common to miss deadlines and ultimately not have a book at all! With Helena’s coaching, I was able to deliver my book before the original deadline.”

Great Partner to Work With
“Helena is a great partner to work with. Unlike a lot of writers, she goes to great lengths to understand what you and your company stand for before beginning her work. This foundational understanding guides her as she works in partnership with you to create communications that are meaningful to your audience and that inspire them to act. Helena’s genuinely curious nature also makes the process fun and engaging. Some of my best conversations about my vision have been with her.”
