Write Your Book this Year!
It's Time to Become a
Best-Selling Author.

This is the ONLY online writing, coaching, and publishing team you'll ever need to SOAR and become a best-selling author.

I'M READY TO WRITE MY BOOK

"The thing that I am clear on is that there is something I am created to do that no one else in the world was created to do and which I truly remember when I’m working with Michelle. She is the portal for me to do that. When you work with Michelle you have a partner in completing what your life’s work is. Her insights were some of the most helpful I’ve experienced. And, they helped me eliminate loads of things that were wasting time – which is priceless. I can’t recommend her highly enough."

-Lindsay Wilson, High-Performance Coach & Mindvalley Trainer

DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

You’re a business owner

with a great system or process and you want to build your platform, increase your visibility, grow your credibility, and get more clients.

You have an inspiring message,

a teaching, or a life lesson you want to share.

You know you’ve got more to say or share

a bigger purpose that fills you with a sense of urgency. You know it’s time.

You’ve been called

to write your book, to speak, and to teach.

We know what stops you. Like most authors, you likely feel self-doubt, overwhelm, or lack of direction. Maybe you think you can’t write, or you worry no one wants to read your words. You may even feel like you have too many ideas, you can’t seem to zero-in on what your book should say, or the opposite: writers’ block. These are just a few of the things that make good writers like you procrastinate.

We know this because we are writers.

WE’RE SO GLAD YOU FOUND US.
WE’RE ABOUT TO HELP YOU TURN IT ALL AROUND.

It’s time for you to release the message that has been trapped inside, but to do that, you need support, accountability, experienced guidance, a clear path, and a team of professionals to help you every step of the way. We work with you to breathe life into your manuscript no matter where you are in the process. Together, we will get your book written, polished, published, and placed in the hands of a world of book-lovers who need to hear your message.

WEX Press is bringing you...

"I recommend GracePoint Publishing with the highest enthusiasm and without reservation. For years, I thought about publishing a book, but a book was daunting. I could never get over the hump. Finally, I saw a notice from GracePoint so I took the plunge and began the process of birthing my book, Seeds of Devotion. I got a publishing coach, and then an editor, and I was supported and encouraged every step of the way. Maybe you are wondering if you could, or maybe should, write a book. All of the team at GracePoint—Michelle, Karen, Gracie, and the others—will guide you with professionalism, grace, and kindness. They are really good at what they do. Take the plunge as I did. You won’t regret it. Thanks to GracePoint for pushing me!"

"The best thing about working with Michelle was her dedication to her clients, her follow-through with what she tells you she will do. She is punctual, focused, and committed to helping you succeed. I was reluctant to work with a coach as I didn’t want to spend more money without getting the results I’d hoped for, but she is more than a coach; she takes pride in your growth, and she’s good at what she does. My book hit number three on Amazon! In addition, I got an amazing web page, great videos, knowledge in SEO, and other marketing issues I didn’t know about before. I’d recommend Michelle for anyone wanting to grow their business."

TERMS

Throughout the next year you’ll get all the support and coaching you’ll need to write, publish, and sell your book; however, we can’t guarantee your results. The results come from your actions and implementation. We can coach you through being productive, taking inspired actions, and pushing through procrastination, but we can’t pick up the pen for you and get your book written.

By committing to this program:

You agree the results are based upon your work, your actions, and that the results you see are based upon your efforts alone. You also understand that we don’t offer refunds. If you believe you are unable to continue for whatever reason, we will coach you through any self-sabotage, procrastination, or writers' block. Only after coaching might we consider a temporary pause on your program.

We look forward to having you and can't wait to read your book!
