Book Coaching with Lisa Smartt

Do you have an idea for a book?

Every week, I receive emails from people who want feedback on their book ideas.

And every week, I am saddened that I do not have the time to read everyone’s submission and offer helpful guidance or words of wisdom.

For that reason, I thought it might be beneficial to others to offer a reading service from someone I turn to

when I want inspiration and feedback: Lisa Smartt, MA.


Lisa is the co-founder of and Life After Life Institute and has offered me support and feedback on several writing projects.

Lisa is now working with me on my book God is Bigger than The Bible.


No writer can do it alone. 

We all need input, guidance and editorial suggestions.
If you have an idea for a book, 
a writing consultation may be just the thing to turn your idea into a reality.

Would you like the support that will bring your dream to life?

Having a book idea and following through on it is one of life’s most exciting endeavors. Ask Lisa Smartt. Several years ago, Lisa became curious about final words after observing unusual changes in her father’s end-of-life language.

She began researching the topic, then pitched the idea to a publisher, and delighted in seeing Words at the Threshold become an Amazon bestseller and enjoyed publication around the world.

Recently, Lisa published Veil and Cante Bardo and offers editorial support and kind guidance to many, including myself. Lisa brings practical know-how as a published author and 30 years teaching experience as an English professor, adult educator and writing coach.

You know that super-charge feeling you get when a thunderstorm is coming? Sitting with Lisa, planning a project is like that. Every fiber of your being vibrates with creativity and excitement. Ideas come in to both of you at the same moment, as if you are both channeling the Truth that wants to be written. Then she magically grounds it with outlines and makes it easy and fun to create a finished work. I've worked with her on two projects now, and I heartily recommend her!
