  • If a specific learning topic is shown to be in need of focus, we will provide you with one or more free ebooks, depending on which title deals with the necessary tutoring.

Annie Mollova Author

This was crazy intense! In the greatest way! Working with the coach Bobbin set me up with was the best decision I have made artistically and professionally to date. My writing has improved greatly through our collaboration, and I now feel confident that I have a quality manuscript moving forward.

Works with your schedule

Bobbin Author Accelerator is designed to work with your schedule and your life

How it works

  • You commit to finishing a rough draft or a revision of your manuscript, with a specific goal date and a plan to get there.

  • You work with your book coach on a project plan that takes into account your work and family obligations, your vacation plans, and your writing style.

  • You and your coach agree on a deadline schedule — usually every other week.

  • You can email your coach between deadlines with quick questions, fast brainstorms, and support in moments of doubt.

  • You can schedule phone or video-conference calls with your coach to go over things face to face — OR use that time to get feedback on more pages.

  • You get free membership in our private mastermind group Bobbin Connected, where you can join Ask Me Anything sessions with Michael Martin, join live working sessions led by our coaches and special guests, and connect with other writers who could be perfect beta-readers for your work.

  • Once you have a finished manuscript, you can keep working with your coach to make sure you meet all your writing goals – from polishing to pitching.

Frequently Asked Questions

We expect most writers to use all of their initial 12 deadlines within 6 months. This equates to an every-other-week submission schedule, which we encourage because it keeps the momentum going and keeps both the writer and coach familiar with the story and the elements you two are working on. It’s the pace at which we’ve seen writers make the best progress.

If you are considering a different submission schedule, please let us know during your consultation call so that we can help you design a schedule that will allow you to get the most out of the program.

Our Manuscript Accelerator program has a 20-page cap on submissions. This could mean up to 20 new pages, 10 new pages and 10 revised pages, or a similar combination. However, you are not expected to submit a full 20 pages each deadline – that’s considered A LOT! Pages do not roll over deadline to deadline, and you are not credited any pages you “do not use.”

PLEASE NOTE: In our Premium program, the page limit per deadline is 25, and there is the option for more flexibility. You and your coach can create a writing schedule that works best for both of you.

When and how you get on the phone with your coach is up to you – you can schedule them at any time throughout your program, and use a video-conferencing platform instead of the phone, if you’d like. You can also combine calls into one longer call to sort through a thorny issue or dive into brainstorming. Your coach will keep track of the calls you’ve used, and let you know what you have remaining. You’ll also have the option of adding phone calls to your program if you find them super helpful. If you’d rather not get on the phone with your coach, your coach will use that extra time to provide feedback on your pages.

Two options are available to you:

  1. To provide more freedom for our authors, we offer you the option to choose to pay at a rate that matches your finances with a custom, flexible payment plan provided by Klarna.
  2. We offer a basic, more affordable book coaching program that’s similar to our Accelerator program with Bobbin Connected.

It’s time to finish and publish your book. We can help.

If you’re serious about writing and publishing your book this year, let’s talk. We’ll discuss your book idea, see if it makes sense, and help you understand the best next steps.

It always felt like my editor gave herself fully to my project, while I am certain I was not the only author in her queue. Our sessions were a joy as well as a sharpening. I cannot recommend Bobbin’s editors and insight enough.

Bobbin has given me such excellent ways to better my manuscript. I thought that the assessment I got from her gave me so much to work with, that I'm feeling very confident and where I can take this book.

I’ve been a published writer for years, but this is my first novel. After editing the book a number of times, but still struggling to cut the word count, I am particularly grateful for Bobbin’s excellent suggestions. My only wish now is that I had known about Bobbin and contacted them sooner.
