UpLevel Your Credibility. Increase Your Income.
Become a Trusted Authority.
Transform More Lives.
Isn’t it time you shared your talents with the world by writing and publishing your book? If you’ve never taken the leap before, or your next book is well overdue, now is the time . . .
One of the fastest ways to UpLevel your business and income is to UpLevel your credibility and visibility.
And few things will accomplish this like becoming the author of your published book.
How did that feel just now . . .
Did you get butterflies thinking about it?
Seeing your name on that beautiful cover.
Holding your message contained within, in your hands.
Signing a heartfelt inscription to one of your readers.
Adding the words, “author of _ _ _” to your bio, your introduction, your website.
Being invited to podcast, radio or television interviews and speaking gigs.
Raising your fees because now you’re seen as an authority.
Popping into your favorite bookstore and seeing YOUR book on the shelf.
That’s Right. Your Book!
Write a Book, and Suddenly a Whole New World Opens Up
Share Your Message with the Ones Who Need it
A book is your opportunity to transform the lives of your readers with the message you passionately want them to hear. You have their undivided attention and it will be like you’re their constant companion for several days.
Not only that, but you get to show them your knowledge and expertise, let your personality shine, and freely share your opinions. There really is no other vehicle quite like a book for getting your wisdom and know-how across . . .
More Attention, More Clients, More Money
So many opportunities and gateways can open up for the published author!
Your published book could . . .
- Be the foundation of your current business
- Be the launching pad of a whole new business
- Become the cornerstone of all of your packages, services and programs
- Be the avenue for your readers to get familiar with your message and style, and hungry to work with you
- Open the doors for live event speaking engagements
- Position you for invitations for podcast inverviews, joint ventures and telesummits
- Place you in view of media attention when the press look for subject matter experts
- Lead you to publish a series of books, solidifying your authority status
- Further establish your credibility and confidence to raise your fees
- UpLevel your brand persona and celebrity, especially if you love the limelight!
But even if you’re an introvert and the thought of taking the stage is akin to highdiving off of a skyscraper, a published book is the perfect avenue for the homebody to access the opportunities above online from the comfort of her laptop!
This all translates to more clients, more lives transformed and more money!
BUT . . .
You Actually Have To Write The Book First
The Sobering Truth . . .
No one ever got called up to appear on Oprah because she thought about writing a book. No one will invite you to speak at their next event because you’re planning to write a book. No one will pay you more because you might write a book someday.
You have to actually write the book.
And that’s where it all falls apart for so many people. Maybe even you . . .
Have these thoughts been standing between you and YOUR book?
- I don’t have time.
- I don’t know what to write about.
- I don’t know how to write a book.
- Why would anybody read my book anyway?
- I don’t know how to start.
- I don’t have the energy.
- I’m not a great writer.
- Writing is just for fun / not important / frivolous
- I have too many ideas to choose from.
- I don’t know how to organize all my thoughts so they make sense.
- I don’t have the discipline.
- I probably won’t make any money with my books.
- I don’t have the money make this happen.
- The whole publishing/marketing process seems so overwhelming.
- What if people don’t approve of what I have to share?
- I don’t have any support from those close to me.
- I’m afraid to be vulnerable.
- I don’t know if I’ll be able to focus long enough to complete it.
- Who am I to write this book / tell this story?
- I’ve wasted too much time – it’s already too late.
- What if I’m not “expert enough”?
- Everything I want to say has already been written (by people way more famous/important/doing this longer than I).
Guess what, lovely one? These things no longer need to stand in your way!
Let me ask you: How long has it been since you knew you wanted to write this book?
Because let’s face it. There will never be a “perfect time” to fulfill that dream – BUT . . .
What If I Told You This Will Be the Year You Hold Your Book in Your Hands?
YES! It IS possible for you!
The mystery and uncertainty about how you’re going to pull it off . . . Solved!
The doubts and fears about your abilities (or readiness) to write your book . . . Eradicated!
Instead of spinning your wheels in isolation and confusion, you’re . . . Supported & Connected!
The overwhelm from thinking about all the moving parts required for publishing and marketing . . . Evaporated!
I’m Melissa Williams-Pope and I’d Love to Show You How
You need someone who’s not only walked the journey herself as an author, but has led others along the path. Someone who can focus on all the strategy of book creation, publication and launching, and also has the wisdom and years of experience as a Mindset Mastery Coach to mentor you through the internal journey of authorship, as well. I’ve been coaching writers for almost a decade now and entrepreneurs for several years, and one thing I know to be true is that the internal journey of the author and entrepreneur is just as important (almost more so) than external strategy.
Fortunately with me, you get both!
And I’d love to show you how . . .
The Magical! Journey to Published Author
A 6-Month Guided Group Experience Taking You From Inspired Idea to Published Book . . . by Summer!
This program is a holistic, 6-month experience that looks at more than just the nuts and bolts of writing, publishing and launching a book, but also emphasizes the importance of nurturing you as an author, while surrounding you with a supportive community, so that instead of clawing your way across the finish line, you’re joyfully pirouetting!
It’s completely unlike any other book publishing program out there!
Just have a look . . .
The Pillars of This Comprehensive & Unique Experience
What Makes This Program So Unique?
First, this is SO MUCH MORE than a program. THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE!
There are tons of “Become a published author in 30 days” or “90 days,” but seriously, let’s be real for a second. Unless you want to sequester yourself away from society in a hovel in the woods and do nothing else, that’s probably not going to happen.
You have a life. A business to run. A family to love on. Come on!
This Experience takes all of that into account! AND along with being incredibly comprehensive (no question will go unanswered), there is a MASSIVE amount of support built in because we focus on YOU. The whole you. What YOU personally really need to be successful . . . way beyond, “What do you think of my title?”
(Although we’ll definitely look at your title, too!)
Read on to see what I mean . . .
Pillar 1: The Confident, Successful, Transformed Author
Success in anything is mainly down to mindset (some would say up to 90%!). All of those beliefs that completely STOP authors and aspiring authors from moving forward with their books (often before they even start) are beliefs that you probably have struggled with, too.
Well, this is NOT just about the how-to’s, templates and checklists (don’t worry, we WILL get to those – promise!), but this program is a guided EXPERIENCE totally different from so many other programs because there is a great emphasis placed on your PERSONAL INTERNAL TRANSFORMATION. Who do you need to become in order to start, follow through, finish and promote your book?
This pillar is all about your FREEDOM to be the published author and to create the book in your heart.
With this Freedom and Transformation you will . . .
✓✓ Overcome any fears, doubts, beliefs (like the voice of your inner critic telling you you’re not good enough!) and unhelpful habits so they no longer keep you holding back
✓✓ Uncover your personal procrastination + resistance triggers and how to move past them so you can keep going
✓✓ Discover the real source of any writer’s block so that it no longer has to be an issue for you
✓✓ Get your family and those closest to you on board with your writing/publishing goals, so instead of feeling undermined and discouraged, you feel supported and respected
✓✓ Create your personal boundaries plan to protect your time and energy so you can stay the course and finish strong (as you nurture your heart as a creator)
Bonus: Encouraging and inspirational audios and videos, journaling exercise worksheets and affirmational printables
Pillar 2: Book Creation & Publication
This is where we focus on the nuts and bolts, THE STRATEGY of your writing and publication plan – and you will be guided and supported every step of the way!
Through Each Phase . . .
✓✓ The Research Phase: Answer the most important questions, not only for the content and credibility of your book, but so that you know without a doubt that there is a market for it and how to reach them.
✓✓ The Structure Phase: Ascertain the purpose and design and organize the structure of each chapter, learn the fiction technique that keeps your book a flowing page-turner, understand the necessary “legal” and “housekeeping” elements to include and plan your calls to action.
✓✓ The Writing Phase: Use the magic of your Core Archetype to craft writing that speaks directly to your reader. Learn how to incorporate the three narrative styles into your work to keep your reader engaged, create your perfectly tailored writing schedule (that’s built for consistent acceleration, but takes your real life into account!) and decipher the exact things you need to keep you purposeful, motivated and on task.
✓✓ The Editing Phase: Create a plan for each element of the editing phase, understand when and how to proof and self-edit, when and how to engage beta readers, and when and how to employ professionals (and where to find them!).
✓✓ The Design + Formatting Phase: My top advice to you – Do NOT put a book out there with a “cringe-worthy” cover (most people choose your book based on cover design alone – it’s THAT important!). In this phase, learn all of the elements that can make or break your cover design, uncover the ins and outs of proper book formatting and decide whether to DIY (do-it-yourself) or hire an expert. Bonus: Comprehensive Judge a Book By It’s Cover Training!
✓✓ The Publication Phase: Learn and decide among the three paths you can take to see your book published (and why I’m such a strong advocate of one of them in particular!); but regardless of the direction you choose, you will understand the steps of each path that you need to take to see your book in print (in your hands!) and/or online. Exciting!
Bonus: There are A LOT of moving parts to this process, but I’ll have you covered with blueprints, templates, worksheets AND recommendations to take all the guesswork out of each phase and answer your most common book creation + publication questions so you feel CONFIDENT and assured that YES you CAN do this!
No author left behind!
Pillar 3: Connection & Community
Isolation is where dreams go to die! Safety in numbers. No man is an island . . .
Whatever your favorite maxim, truth or cliché, there is POWER in connecting with a group of likeminded, supportive women who are on the exact same journey as you are.
I’ve created such a community in The Inspired Author Society Salon! This is not just some Facebook group where you get lost in the crowd . . .
This is a dedicated, online space for DAILY accountability, support and coaching using a proprietary software created and designed to help writers stay motivated and keep their progress accelerated as they move ever forward.
In The Society Salon you have . . .
✓✓ A personal, daily progress page to stay accountable with every aspect of your writing journey and a place where your book creation “Circle Sisters” and I can visit to encourage, support and coach you
✓✓ Fascinating graphs to help you monitor things like your word count, time spent on various book creation/promotion activities and even how you’re feeling from day to day!
✓✓ A dedicated forum to ask and answer questions, get news and updates, engage in ongoing discussions, and share and celebrate with the wider community
✓✓ Live, “Get-it-Done” Productivity Parties where at least once a week, we’ll all come together for a timed writing sprint or to work on something you might have been procrastinating on. By far one of the most fun activities in the Salon!
✓✓ Private chat rooms where you can have real-time discussions, share tips and encouragement, create Sister Circle challenges, hold virtual café writing or purposeful productivity dates, and more!
✓✓ Access to all the training materials that are part of the program, so everything is in one, easy to find place
The Society Salon really is the FOUNDATION for your success for every step of your journey. Very few other programs offer this level of support.
I’m so excited to offer it as a Key Component of the Experience!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL . . .

What They’re Saying . . .
“It couldn’t have happened without you . . . I appreciate you more than words can express.“
Thanks, Melissa Williams, who challenged me to set the time aside to write and helped me to come up with a plan! You are an amazing coach . . . “So glad it’s finally done!” . . . It couldn’t have happened without you . . . I appreciate you more than words can express.
“Her insight and clarity have helped me both as a writer and in my own personal journey.”
The writer’s program was a great opportunity to sit under great coaching and really focus on the ‘why’ of my writing. The group sessions were great for sharing ideas, working through solutions and being able to encourage other writers; as well as finding encouragement for myself.
The process was highly valuable in streamlining my thoughts and approach, enabling me to be more productive in my writing time. I found a deeper sense of personal satisfaction with the quality of writing that I produced, and found my ‘voice’. If you are wanting to take your writing to the next level, or just jumpstart your writing altogether, coaching with Melissa will help get you where you want to be.
As a busy mum of 4 . . . it’s been a privilege to sit under both Melissa’s teaching and personal one-on-one coaching. Melissa can get to the heart of a matter in an affirming, encouraging way while still being able to offer challenge and growth – not always an easy combination. Her insight and clarity have helped me both as a writer and in my own personal journey. Melissa can see the gold in a person, before they even see it in themselves, and can draw it out of them. If you are want to see growth in any area of your life, I highly recommend getting alongside Melissa. To use her words: You are worth the investment.
“In a few short weeks, I will have a hard copy print of my very first book!! Thank you Melissa!!!!”
When Melissa and I first met, I not only couldn’t see the forest for the trees, I couldn’t even get to the forest! I was scattered in so many different directions, I was doing nothing well. She first helped me target the WHAT I wanted to do. This was seriously a miracle in itself.
Once I determined finishing the book was my WHAT, Melissa helped me determine the HOW. For me, the how usually stopped me in my tracks because I got overwhelmed in the details which led to making zero progress. My mindset was that I didn’t have time to write everyday. And I didn’t have time to sit for hours and write everyday, that was fact.
I had started writing a book years earlier and never had the time or focus to finish it. But when Melissa coached me, everything shifted. I had also been struggling with how to describe the book. In one of our sessions, Melissa helped coin the subtitle that is now on my book!
I always had a dream of writing a book but never knew what to do with it once it was written. Melissa was a HUGE part of helping me determine which publishing direction was right for me. Because she has personally walked the journey, she had the knowledge and experience to lead me in the right direction instead of me wasting time researching something I didn’t know anything about.
Within 30 days my book was finalized and in the hands of an editor. And, in a few short weeks, I will have a hard copy print of my very first book!! Thank you Melissa!!!!
Common Questions . . .
What if I'm not sure what book I want to write?
If you really have NO idea but KNOW you’re feeling called to write a book this year, you’re welcome to book a Book Brainstorming Session with me (these are SO fun and only $197 when you’re a part of The Journey to Published Author Experience!). I have helped multi-passionate, full-of-ideas writers to narrow down, so I know it can be done! Just send an email to info (at) melissawilliamspope.com and we’ll set it up. 🙂
What if I want to be traditionally published?
Why? Because you have CONTROL over your work – the content, when it’s published and released and how much money you can make from it. The rights are 100% yours. And these days, many people start their book off as self-published, do exceptionally well and THAT gets the attention of agents and traditional publishers!
But remember, you still have to write the book! So look at The Magical! Journey to Published Author as your way in to make all of that happen.
And I will be providing a bonus Proposal Template for those of you who do want to go that route in the end.
Will you read, proofread or edit my writing?
Will you help me write my content?
What if it's going to take me longer than 6 months to finish my book?
During our time together you will develop and maintain amazing consistency habits that will not only stay with you throughout the time you create your book, but will probably change your life going forward! The emphasis on your mindset will be transformational for every area of your life. And by creating your author platform from the very beginning, you will be building the kind of buzz that causes your readers to continually express how they can’t wait for your book to be released – which is highly motivating!
In short, even if you don’t finish or launch your book within our six months together, you will be creating a priceless foundation for success, while accelerating your progress more than you ever thought possible! (And don’t be surprised if you DO finish it by summer!!) 😉
What if I want to join, but I'm nervous, unsure or just downright scared?
(And speaking of boats, if you want to walk on water, you’ll have to get out of YOUR boat.)
Plus I spend a lot of time weaving that mindset support throughout the program, so I don’t just cover it in Week 1 and then leave you to your own devices for the rest of the six months. We’ve got you! 😉
What if I want to join, but I'm sooo busy?
But knowing that most plates are pretty full, I specifically chose to create an Experience that gives you six months – as opposed to those 30 or 90-day book writing programs out there. I just don’t believe they take a full life’s commitments into account.
One of the powerful affirmations that my clients often focus on is: “I have all the time I need to do what I want to do.” And if this is what you really want, then you do and you will!
Can I upgrade to First Class after I've already registered?
