Excellent Writing Coach

I had only written brochures and advertising stuff before I went to Book in a Barn, and now I have almost completed my first draft of my memoir! Laura Bush is an excellent writing coach and Book in a Barn is a powerful kick-start — with extraordinary personal results for all.

I Had Fun

I can’t tell you how helpful Laura is as a writing coach. I learned a ton from her while writing my book. Her input is invaluable, her comments are spot on, and her edits are amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed our private writing sessions. She inspired me in many ways and made the project much richer. Plus, I had fun!

Unfailing, Efficient, and Expert Guidance

I am ever grateful for the unfailing, efficient, and expert guidance I receive from Dr. Bush and her skilled Accountability Coaches in the “Write to Launch Now” program. Laura’s remarkable patience and tact as I present my weekly writing for workshopping never ceases to impress me.  She projects a warm, cheerful attitude as she works with each author, giving us specific direction and clarity toward our end goal. I now know my book, Hiding Behind the Mask of Leadership, will be published in just a few months.

Tremendous Bang for the Buck

Dr. Laura Bush provides tremendous bang for the buck as a writing coach. From the moment I met her, I sensed the know-how, experience and professionalism I would need for the demanding process of fleshing out an outline. I had been putting off writing this book for a few years, unsure how to move forward. Her knowledge and accountability plus her personal encouragement have combined to propel me forward. At last, I am writing my "damn" book, Dream Like Jesus.

I’m Not Wondering Anymore

I am so happy I put in the work to finally get my book done and published. Since Hook 'Em with Humor has been out, I've received calls to speak that I know I never would have received prior to having the book. Plus, my speaking fee is now higher than ever. I guess what they say about a book bringing credibility is true. But beyond the speaking opportunities, I now have multi-revenue potential because I've turned the book into a full online academy rather than just an online course. Are you wondering what a book can do for you? I'm not wondering anymore. I know!

Easy to Work With

I have had the pleasure of working with Laura for about 2 1/2 years now. From the beginning, I have been extremely impressed with her excellent writing skills and professionalism. Laura never ceases to amaze me with the writing projects she has completed for me at Save the Family. She is friendly, easy to work with and an expert at what she does!

Enormous Value

As my book editor, Laura worked with me as a partner, sharing my goal for an excellent, interesting and clearly written book. Her skills in crafting the right words add enormous value. She constructively challenged any part that might not be clear to a reader, and we worked together until we got it right. Laura was also easy to do business with and made her committed completion dates.

Thanks to Laura

I got the crazy idea that my 77 year life story should become a NY Times best seller. So I contacted a close friend, a past president of the Arizona Writers Association, and Laura Bush became my writing coach. Four months later, thanks to Laura, I have blown by the 30,000 word mile post with a full head of steam. My goal shimmers on the horizon!

Editor Extraordinaire

Laura has a unique ability to help authors draw from their own well, the story that lies in the deep waters of their soul. Then she helps them craft that story with mastery. She’s an editor extraordinaire who provides the spoonful of sugar to help the editing go down! I’m ever grateful for how she’s helped me mature as an author.

Almost Effortless

Laura cleared the runway of my book writing dreams with her support, expertise, and guidance, so my book could take flight! Her gift for showing me how to write my thoughts down into words made the process of formulating one chapter after another almost effortless. Our weekly, online meetings had us assess, critique, and formulate new strategies for developing and revising my writing powerfully together. When my friend Cathy shared her book idea with me, I recommended Laura’s services to her without hesitation.

I would not have written a book if it weren't for Laura’s encouragement and mentorship, along with our writing group! The idea of writing intimidated me, which is ironic considering my book is about getting out of your comfort zone and going after what you want in life. I'm surprised by how much I truly enjoyed the writing process. Writing my book also made me feel more inspired and creative in other areas of my business!

Laura is a brilliant writer, and I have been involved with organizations that she has developed (i.e. World Academy for the Future of Women). Her education and experiences provide her with an amazing ability to connect with people and promote them and what's important to them with grace and professionalism.
