Community, mentorship, guidance, and accountability for authors and aspiring authors

with 6x author Elizabeth Lyons

“The perfect place to feel a little less 'alone' as a writer. There’s camaraderie, support, access to a variety of tools, and most importantly, the incredible guidance of Elizabeth."

-Mary Belle, author

I know, you wish you could just sit down and write that book you have inside you!


Or figure out how to get a publisher (or navigate the world of indie publishing without making umpteen mistakes along the way).


Or stop sitting in the same worn-down spot on the couch, wondering (out loud, to yourself) which marketing strategy to try next.


‚≠źÔłŹ You know your book can make a difference. Your stories will entertain people. Your insights¬†will help¬†at least¬†one person improve their situation.¬†¬†


‚≠źÔłŹ¬†You see other authors posting their new releases‚ÄĒeven authors you‚Äôve never heard of, who don‚Äôt have a following the size of Alaska‚ÄĒand imagine¬†what it¬†would feel like to be in their shoes.¬†¬†


‚≠źÔłŹ¬†You have endless questions about book writing, editing, publishing, and marketing. And you'd love to have a trusted resource and community ready to answer them and get you back on the right path!¬†


‚≠źÔłŹ¬†You see highlight reels featuring authors getting together at events, supporting and celebrating one another, and think, "I want to be part of a community like that!"

That's exactly the resource I craved for years as I navigated the book writing and publishing space.

And it's why I created  

The Book Writers Collective

...the accountability, compassionate-yet-ass-kicking coaching, mentoring, and strategizing community you need to bring your book to life and keep it selling and impacting for years to come!


When you join any of my core programs (Book Writing Made Simple, Publish A Profitable Book, or From Manuscript to Market), you receive a one-year membership to The Book Writers Collective! 


OR, you can join the collective a la carte for just $47/month!

Books I've Recently Helped Into the World



In Authors' Own Words...



“Elizabeth was able to effortlessly guide me through the process of understanding and overcoming each and every point of confusion. Her ability to disintegrate the fears I had is more than I had hoped for. Her ability to know what to ask, what to say, and how to respond through this process is breathtaking in its effortlessness. Her understanding of the human condition is awe-inspiring.”

—Alan Bleiweiss

The Writers Collective Provides: 


‚ö°ÔłŹ The accountability & support you're craving


‚ö°ÔłŹ Coaching and mentoring through your "wonky" moments


‚ö°ÔłŹ Knowledgeable guidance for all things book writing and publishing (whether you're planning to self-publish or traditionally publish!)


‚ö°ÔłŹ A community of fellow writers to reassure, support, and encourage you


‚ö°ÔłŹ Creative book marketing strategies and cross promotion¬†

If you've gotten this far, you're likely thinking...

"This all sounds great, but who the hell is Elizabeth, and why should I consider her invitation to dive into the shallow end of the pool (where she's waiting with a sloth-patterned raft, a welcoming smile, and a laugh so distinct it's been recognized from four aisles away in Target)?

In short (and I am, standing at barely 5' 3"), I love words, backstories, cupcakes, sloths, and tearing down walls in my perfectly good home.  


Also, I believe that everyone can learn to LOVE book writing , publishing, and marketing‚ÄĒas long as they have a trusted process to follow and knowledgeable support guiding them through the trickier moments.¬†¬†


I'm a 6x author, and I've spent the past 20 years helping countless others master their message and write books that have deeply impacted others while providing amazing opportunities to advance their careers or simply share their stories. 

I will believe relentlessly in you, your story, and your ability to write and sell (over and over again) an incredible book...


...AND I will guide you with love and understanding.


There is no shame in my game (just ask any of my 5 kids), and that extends to my relationships with my clients. I am here to deeply¬†see¬†you, and reflect it back to you so that you can deeply see yourself (even when‚ÄĒespecially¬†when‚ÄĒit's not the easiest thing to do). It's one of the¬†top (and least talked about) benefits of book writing!¬†


Because the truth is, writing and publishing a book is one of the most vulnerable, healing, and expansive things you'll ever do.  


When "stuck" happens, you need someone who's helped others navigate what you're experiencing hundreds of times and can help you bring forth lessons and insights you didn't even realize were within you.  


Honestly, this part of the author world lights me up as much as a brilliantly worded feeling. 

What's Included  

- 2 group coaching/guidance/mentoring calls per month where you get direct support and guidance from me and benefit from the coaching and guidance other participants receive (which is almost always "coincidentally" what you need to hear that you don't realize you need to hear!). We meet every other Tuesday at noon PST (1pm MST, 2pm CST, 3pm EST). 


- Weekly co-writing/co-working sessions each month to keep you on track and in the collective energy of others who are also committed to doing the damn thing. We meet every Wednesday at 10am PST (11am MST, noon CST, 1pm EST).  


- Access to private Facebook community with your new favorite network of supportive, growth-minded authors and aspiring authors so you always have somewhere to go and someone to ask when you need accountability, support, or a new idea.

Your story wants to be told.

Your message wants to be shared.

I’m here to help you get it done. 



Membership Includes:

  • Group sessions twice¬†per month¬†
