The 6-month Private Coaching Program + Online Course for Traditionally Published Authors

Millions of people dream of being a published author.


You actually did it.


But somewhere along the way... writing stopped being fun.


You've lost access to the creative flow you loved.

Past "failures" - the manuscripts that died on submission, the book that underperformed -  are a weight around your neck.

Even success makes writing harder. What this next book doesn't sell as well? What if readers don't like this new direction? 

You dreamed of this career, and you worked so hard to make it real, but now that you have a book deal, you're more stressed than ever.

You find yourself wondering if all the sacrifice was worth it.

It IS worth it... and it's possible to fall back in love with writing.

Client Testimonials

YA author

I've gained so much clarity on what I want and what I don't want as an author.

I've been able to hone in on what MY dream is as an author, versus being fixated on an externalized "dream" that I've been told I should want.

YA author

Isabel's questions help me get really specific about what I do - and don't - want for both my writing and my career in publishing.

It's so easy to compare ourselves to others in our productivity-hustle-girlboss culture; it turns out I was feeling like a failure about not doing things that I don't even WANT to do.

Historical Fiction Author

Isabel helped me tell new, more productive stories about the work I’m doing, allowing me to walk away from a writing session feeling proud instead of defeated.

I am working more than I have been in a long time, and am finally able to take a day off without guilt, which is a major win for me.

The Essential Skills You Need

Confident author careers don’t happen by accident. 
They’re created. 
YOU can create a sustainable career (one that you LOVE) no matter what's currently happening with your publishing experience. 
All it takes is few key skills, and inside The Confident Author Academy, you'll learn everything you need.


The Online Curriculum is Broken into 4 Pillars:

It's hard to enjoy writing when you're afraid your next book will disappoint readers.

That’s why we start with The Joyful Writing Protocol. You’ll learn research-backed mindset tools that help you stop stressing about your Amazon ranking and stop reading reviews.

Once we’ve laid a solid foundation, we take it to the next level by tapping into your story instincts.

You’ll learn my proven 4-step process for consistent writing that builds momentum in your story and makes it easier to access creative flow.

As authors, we don’t just write books. More than ever before, our publishers expect us to take an active role in marketing our books.

In The Authentic Marketing Method, we'll take the confusion and overwhelm out of marketing so you can get back to doing what you do best: writing something new.

To navigate this opaque industry, you need a solid sense of your own self-worth that’s separate from the value of your stories that’s also separate from what you get paid for those stories.

This allows you to set healthy boundaries, say no to things that don’t work for you, and navigate deadlines with ease.
