TELL ME MORE

What if you finally committed to writing your book?

You know the book I’m talking about.

The book inside you, beating within your heart, dying to be written.

The book you daydream about when you’re staring off into the clouds.

The book you think about before you fall asleep at night.

The book you’ve wanted to write for months, years, possibly even decades… but for many reasons, never quite get around to actually writing. 

The book sharing your stories, teachings, insights, wisdom, and perspective that will enrich countless lives.

The book that will change the world.

The book that will be part of your legacy.

The book that is uniquely YOU -- that no one else but YOU can write. 

Decide NOW that you are going to close out 2021 by finally writing your book -- in fact, that you will complete the first draft by the end of December AND hold your published book in your hands by April 2022! 

Can you feel it? The most unbelievable sense of pride + accomplishment. This is what I want for you, my friend! It is all within your reach.

Join my exclusive small-group coaching program and become part of a community of writers who will provide you support + encouragement as your pages pile up. Receive accountability, cheerleading, inspiration (and a gentle kick-in-the pants when needed) to ensure you are consistently moving forward towards those two magical words: THE END. Learn how to find your writing voice and embrace your authentic style to write your book and spread your message in a way that is riveting, memorable, crystal clear, and uniquely you.

Just a few of the beautiful books published by previous clients...

"There is no one in the world who could have bought this book out of me the way Dallas did. She is an absolute superstar and fountain of writing knowledge. I have such respect and gratitude for Dallas and the way she helped me bravely bring my book into the world."

Lenore Pearson, holistic counsellor and author of SELF ASHORED: NAVIGATING YOUR WAY ON LIFE’S VOYAGE (Best Indie Book Award winner)

"Dallas’s program was just what I needed to get my book out of my head and onto paper. Every week, I looked forward to our coaching calls and her positive energy. I never thought I would be a published author, but Dallas made it happen. I recommend her program to anyone who is dreaming of writing a book. I know I will definitely be using her services again for my next writing adventure."

Melissa DaSilva, LICSW, Executive Life Coach, and author of THE PROFITABLE PRACTICE

"Since publishing my books, I have been able to do over 150 keynotes in over 30 states. My books allow people to have a continued takeaway of my message and further their learning. I find that having a book is often the impetus for someone to book me as a speaker - they want to see and hear the text come alive off the page."

- Dr. Lauren Cook, LC, Motivational Speaker, therapist, and author of The Sunny Side Up! and Name Your Story
