Change the Channel launches on June 19th

The sky really is the limit for one British Airways cabin crew member who has realised her dreams by launching her first book this weekend, thanks to the efforts of writing coach Mindy Gibbins-Klein.

Writing had always been a passion for Premier Cabin Crew member Felicity Lerouge, whose inspiring novel Changing the Channel (£9.99, Ecademy Press) launches tonight in Notting Hill, but life ended up taking her in different directions and it wasn’t until 2007 that Felicity stirred her creative juices once more at a seminar by highly acclaimed self-help writer and speaker Tony Robbins.

It was then that Felicity met Mindy Gibbins-Klein, the founder of book coaching company The Book Midwife™ who went on to become Felicity’s writing coach last year. Earlier this year at Mindy’s recommendation, co-operative publisher Ecademy Press decided to take on the book and since then Felicity has never looked back!

“Mindy’s coaching was an essential part of Changing the Channel being written; she helped me define compelling reasons why writing the book was so important to me and how achieving this goal would enrich my life and, hopefully, the lives of others. This is what kept me focused and at my laptop, when the writing didn’t flow as easily as it might have done,” explains Felicity, who lives in London.

Felicity is one of six Book Midwife™ clients to have finished their books in recent months. Hot off the press are Change by Choice by Philip Cox-Hynd and The Trusted Advisor by Lee Clarke with others are on track to publish throughout July and August.

And as these literary passengers check out of their journey with the Book Midwife™, several opportunities now existing for serious aspiring authors to work with Ms Gibbins-Klein on a private 90 day consultancy program which guarantees to takes the author from idea to finished manuscript in just 90 days.

“90% of people who start a book never get round to finishing it and so the 90 day programme is great for people like Felicity who have that book on the tips of their fingers but just can’t seem to get it onto the page,” says Gibbins-Klein, who has helped over 300 people to write and publish their books.

In a survey conducted by The Book Midwife™ last year of 112 would-be authors of business and personal development books, 31% admitted they had started but not yet finished their book, whilst 40% had not even started to write their book yet .The survey found that the biggest barriers were finding the time, a lack of publishing and marketing knowledge and self-doubt and indecision.

“But racing at full speed into a ‘best-seller’ without any clear plan or direction can be equally as dangerous if the book ends up being more of a ‘brain-dump’ than a well thought through expression of the author’s values, experiences and beliefs. Most authors are too close to their work to make this distinction,” reveals Ms Gibbins-Klein.
