Developed a plan to revise my novel

"Before my NLP coaching session with Beth, the revision process was overwhelming, stressful, and scary. I had trouble even opening my book to re-read it, much less edit it. But after working with Beth, my outlook completely changed for the better. In just one session, Beth helped me develop a plan for revising that made the process seem exciting and fun. The very next day after our NLP session, I got to work on the revision that I'd been putting off for so long. And not only did I revise the early chapters--I also had fun doing it! I suddenly found ideas that had been buried before under all the anxiety. I am so grateful to Beth for helping me see my revision in a new light. With her help, I feel like I've not only discovered the potential joys of revising, but I've also learned skills that will help me long into the future of my writing career."

Beth Barany, Creativity Coach for Writers

Hi, I’m Beth Barany.

I am a writing coach and teacher who helps fiction writers experience clarity, so you can write, revise, and proudly publish their novels to the delight of their readers.

I've helped hundreds of writers over the last 20 years to achieve their writing dreams and I am excited to help you...

An award-winning novelist, master neurolinguistic programming practitioner, and certified creativity coach for writers, I focus on creating useful hands-on information that you can implement right away. 

I run an online school for fiction writers and a 12-month group coaching program to help you get published.More resources on publishing, book marketing, and novel writing on my blog, Writer's Fun Zone. 

When I'm not helping writers, I write magical tales of romance, mystery, and adventure that empower women and girls to be the heroes of their own lives.

-- you're getting started with your first novel (yah!) and don't know how to proceed

-- you have a completed manuscript but are not sure how to edit it or you want detailed feedback on it

-- you're looking for an agent or publisher and need help polishing your query and submission package and finding appropriate agents and publishers

-- you're struggling with overwhelm and frustration at maintaining a writing practice

-- you want to publish your novel but don't know how and want a guide to walk you through your options

-- you want to get clear on your marketing and promotional needs for your novel(s) and for your author career, but don't know where to start

... One of those rare people who listens deeply

"Receiving coaching from Beth Barany is like catching sight of a lighthouse after being lost in the fog of your writing career for months.

She has an amazing ability to identify the underlying technical or psychological issues that are tripping you up, and to bring you to a place of clarity so you can identify where you need to go next.

Beth is one of those rare people who listens deeply -- she hears what you're saying and focuses on your unique situation and your personal strengths and weaknesses. Because of this, her guidance is pure gold."

-- Bonnie Johnston, Urban Fantasy and Romance Author

... Evoking motivation and inspiration out of me

“Beth has a way of evoking motivation and inspiration out of me, by just being, listening and encouraging in a subtle way which is perfect for me.

I think she understands what I need as a writer.

I find myself working harder and accomplishing much more in such a short amount of time, my story is pushing right out of me. She is one of my allies."

-- Karen Lodrick, Writer, Speaker

What is NLP?

NLP stands for neuro-linguistic programming.

It's a way to help you have what you want without having to "work" to be different than who you are.

I've been trained in heart-based transformational NLP that is gentle, respectful, and above all, useful.


NLP can help you have the life you'd like, in ways that are gentle and respectful of all of you -- past, present, and future. Benefits:

  • You will become more emotionally available to do the work you desire.
  • You'll be able to come back home to your writing self and your Source.
  • You'll be more of who you want to be.
  • You'll ignite your core motivation for writing.
  • You'll uncover or rediscover ease at coming to the page.
  • You'll become more focused and productive with your writing.
  • You'll be able to let go of mental blocks and beliefs that keep you from expressing and publishing your ideas.
  • You can find your writer voice.
