The Book Coach Chronicles is a podcast for creatives & creative entrepreneurs who are ready to write their best book. This year. No more writer's block. No more burnout. No more imposter syndrome. And no more confusion. It's time to finally find some balance in your life, writing, and author business so you can get back to enjoying the things you love… and even the things you don’t, but have to do anyway.

Unlike other writing podcasts, we look at life holistically—because if you're stressed at home, you're stressed while writing, too. Everything's connected and everything matters.

And most importantly, everything has a story.

Fiction, nonfiction, or that grey space in between—it all has a story, and when you learn to tell your own story, and be your own Heroine, you write better Heroines and you become better at turning your readers into Heroines, too.

All You Need Is Hops ,

Inspiring!

Holly’s podcast helps me take the time to recognize how my environment impacts my mood and allow my creativity to flow accordingly. I love her reminders to stop hustling and slow down to appreciate the things I am grateful for in my life! She balances her advice with personal anecdotes in an approachable way so that I feel comfortable - not as if I’m being instructed, but guided. I’ve also really enjoyed the variety of tips and interviews with interesting people that keeps things fresh and engaging.

The Dream Season

Loved Holly’s delivery and found content had me very introspective in episode 2. Her conversation with guest Sarah in episode 3 regarding caffeine/alcohol’s overriding affect on our person was a very thought provoking perspective. I’m “hooked”, can’t wait for more!

Seasonal Cycles

I’m loving Holly’s framework of seasons, it’s a good reminder for all parts of life that we are always going through cycles. This really encourages listeners to slow down and allow yourself to be in the present moment, whatever part of that “season” you may be in.
