Susan Crossman

BA (Hons.), MA. Senior Instructor and Coach

Is this a good time to start working on your book? With so many people stationed at home during these unfamiliar times I've been fielding an increasing number of calls about book writing. I work with coaches, consultants, thought leaders, and innovators to write a high-quality non-fiction book that will help them share their message, enhance their credibility, and generate greater revenue through public speaking and other business initiatives. As an author, book coach and editor, I bring adventure into my work and in recent years I've been wine tasting in Porto, I've studied the labyrinth at the gracious Cathedral of Chartres, and I've gone ziplining in Costa Rica. I've luged down a mountain in New Zealand, and gone trekking in the hills north of Khatmandu. I've hiked among the ruins of Macchu Pichu, and picnicked in the south of France. I have become, just like you, a library of stories that have shaped my environment, my dreams and my hopes for our planet.

Here are a few of the kind words that have been said about us

“One of the first things I would advise anyone contemplating doing a book is to contact Susan Crossman and get their book structured and put together, organized and edited, in part rewritten, and honed to perfection . I can say this without hesitation – we get many books presented to us and so many cannot make the cut. Whenever I get a book from Susan the odds are virtually 100% that we will take it on because it’s already ready to go. It’s already structured, written and organized in such a way that it’s talking to the reader and telling them what they need to do in a coherent and clear manner. The books she brings are very engaging, and they draw readers in immediately so they can take value from the book. And so, I would strongly advise budding authors to get in touch with Susan Crossman and see what you can do together. When she presents a book to Manor House I will happily take a look at it. As I say, the odds are virtually 100% that we will publish it.”

“It’s been a goal of mine since I was a small child to write a book! I am deeply honoured to have had the opportunity to work with Susan. She inspired confidence in me while I was finishing up my writing process. The quality of my writing has become so much stronger and I am so proud of my completed book, Strong Beauty: Power Up the Champion Within. I fully endorse her work ethic, attention to detail and her ability to retain the author’s voice, which comes through beautifully in her editing. I will proudly use her services again and will refer her work to my colleagues!”

“In essence, Susan took us on a 6-week guided book writing tour, from blank page to published. She guided us through the relevance and significance of each step. Susan was extremely generous with helpful tools and resources. We benefitted from her own book writing experience, insight gained and lessons learned. Susan also pointed us to other credible sources to help us. Bottom line, she made it about us, serving our needs. Most obvious throughout was Susan’s genuine love for what she does, her knowledge and expertise. It made all the difference. Definitely a worthwhile experience”
