How I help you write your book & get it published

coach and author karen brown

Have you an idea for a book, but don’t know how to get it published?

Or have a manuscript but don’t know how to format it so that you can get it printed?

Then I’m here to help.

I’ve self-published nearly 100 books on Amazon including books with complex formatting in them like planners and journals, so I know about sizing, margins, guttering, bleeds etc.

But I’m also a coach, so I help you set goals and keep you accountable so that your book gets finished and you have a copy of it in your hands, ready to sell.

My Services

book formatting with Coach Karen Brown

Manuscript to book

In less than a day, I can format most manuscripts and turn them into a book, so that they are ready to upload to Amazon.

As an expert on MS Word, and having formatted my own books, I know quite a bit about book layout and structure, so what would take me a couple of hours to sort out, might leave you scratching your head for days.

eBook to Print

If you’ve published your book as an ebook, and want to publish it as a print book, but don’t know how then I’m here to help.

I can format your book ready for print, or you can use my free templates instead, and do it yourself.

Book Structure & Layout

Talk to me if the book you have in mind needs a formal structure to it, like a recipe book, workbook, planner, habit tracker etc. If you can plan it on paper, I can turn it into a page in Word.

If you’d like some ideas, check out my books on Amazon. They can give you an idea of the options available to you.


Please note: My services are around the structure and layout of your book. I do not formally edit or proofread your book.

Book Manuscript Templates

Want a basic template that you can just fill in the blanks, then check out my book manuscript templates. Based on my own books, you can adapt them to your own needs.

Each template is licensed to you only, but you can create as many books as you want from one template.

There are templates for notebooks, journals, and more.

I’m also developing book inserts for mandala’s, mazes, word searches and sudoku. Buy a couple of packs and create your own range of activity books!

book coaching with Coach Karen Brown


Writing a book takes time, and all too often a book doesn’t make it across the publishing line.

I’m a good sounding board and can help you clarify what you want to publish.

Once I have a vision of your book I will be your cheerleader and chief kicker of bums, depending on where you are in the process.
