Have you always dreamed of writing and publishing your own book?

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.

Who I help

Coaches and consultants

Coaches and Consultants

Having your own book boosts your credibility, and can be the basis of your signature course or programme.

Mindfulness professionals

Mindfulness Professionals

Many mindfulness professionals advocate journaling and gratitude as tools to help their clients. Having your own branded books means that you can supply them to your clients, rather than direct them to someone else’s.



Branded notebooks are cheap to produce and make excellent gifts to clients. Make your own with my templates or ask me to do it for you.


How I help

I take care of your book structure and layout so that you can focus on the content…

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.  and my ready-made book templates. 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.
