Are You Ready to Get Your Book
Out of Your Head, Onto the Page and Into the World?
Give Me 8-12 Weeks, and I’ll Show You How to Write, Edit and Monetize Your Book
So You Can Elevate Your Career, Increase Your Income and Experience a Wealth of New Possibilities.
You know you want to write your book.
You’ve got a message to share, a story to tell…
one that has the power to help, encourage and inspire so many people.
You’ve been thinking about it, tossing around ideas… maybe even jotting down a few notes or making an outline.
Perhaps you’ve imagined what the cover might look like.
Or how it will feel when the first copies of your book are delivered to your door.
And you know, deep down, that once you write your book, your life will change. It will be filled with so many new possibilities… from new high-paying clients to speaking engagements or even a brand new career in a field you love.
The idea of writing your book is thrilling.
But when you sit down to write it, something happens.
You may start to feel overwhelmed, unsure of yourself or in over your head. Or you make a little progress, but then you get stuck because:
- You’re not sure how to structure your book… or how to make a strong start.
- The overall message of your book may still be a little fuzzy to you.
- You can’t seem to find the time to write.
- Or you’re afraid that you’ll pour your heart and soul into writing your book, and no one will want to read it.
It’s okay. You’re not the only aspiring author who feels this way!
Hi. My name is Lisa Tener, and as a book writing coach and faculty member for Harvard Medical School’s CME publishing course, I’ve taught thousands of aspiring authors who faced the same doubts, obstacles and tight schedules you face now.
And the good news is, the committed authors not only went on to finish their books, they got their books published and leveraged their books into a multitude of new career opportunities. From big promotions to 6-figure business deals, to invitations to travel and speak to audiences all over the world, to gaining access to top-level experts, to launching a whole new career. (You can read some of their stories below).
But they didn’t do it alone.
These authors got the support, guidance and expertise they needed to get their book written, get it done right… and enjoy the journey, every step of the way.
Now, you can, too.

“My Book Won 4 National Book Awards”
“Lisa’s book writing coaching helped make my dream come true. I’ve won four national book awards, and I launched my own teleseminars, a speaking career, and a radio show (The Best People We Know), which is in the top 1% and 2% in popularity in self-help.”
This is Your Opportunity to Write Your Best Book, The Book That Represents the Highest Expression of What You Know and the Message You Want to Share.
Let’s face it. There are a lot of book writing programs out there. There are even some that promise you can write a book in a weekend.
So, let me be clear.
Bring Your Book to Life® is NOT a fill-in-the-blank, one-size-fits-all system. It is designed to help you write the book you’ve always wanted to write, the one that will resonate with your audience, establish your expertise and make you proud as punch once it’s finished, published and out in the world.
But that’s not all.
You’ll also get insider information on how to promote, sell and leverage your book into multiple income-producing, life-changing opportunities.
Do you want to know why authors who go through this program have many times ended up with lucrative business deals, Amazon bestsellers, invitations to be keynote speakers at national conferences, more top-paying clients, all-expenses paid travel opportunities and the career of their dreams?
Because Bring Your Book to Life® not only helps you structure, write and edit your book, it gives you the information you need to:
- Get your book published.
- Position your book to appeal to the media.
- Create a brand from your book.
- Get stellar endorsements from experts, authors and celebrities.
- Generate a viral buzz for your book.
- Leverage your book into multiple income opportunities.
- Land an agent, if you’re looking to traditionally publish.
Signed with Random House
“Lisa helped me fine-tune my book proposal and cultivate my style and voice as a writer. She knows what agents and publishers are looking for, understands what readers want, and has a strong, instinctive sense for balancing syntax and style. Through it all, Lisa was insightful and gracious – a pleasure to work with and a tremendous asset.”
Bestseller in Two Categories
“Nine months after Lisa’s live teleseminar Bring Your Book to Life® Program, I held my published book in my hands. The day we launched, the book climbed the Amazon bestseller charts in two categories.”
6-Figure Contract with Scribner
“Meeting Lisa Tener at Harvard Medical School’s publishing course changed my life – I landed a 6-figure book deal with Scribner. Lisa has an ability to bring out your creativity and at the same time she understands the business end of book writing and publishing.”
And Don’t Worry.
Your book-writing adventure gets to be as fun and rewarding as finishing your final draft, getting a publishing deal or receiving a slew of great reviews and recommendations.
If you decide to write your book all by yourself, you may start off strong, full of inspiration and determination. Then, a few weeks down the road, you slam into a wall.
You start to have days, even weeks, when you feel like you’re slogging through a swamp of resistance, writer’s block and self-doubt. Then you find yourself coming up with some flimsy-but-acceptable excuses as to why you can’t work on your book today. Or tomorrow, for that matter.
And, well, you know how the story ends.
I’m not going to let it happen to you!
When we work together in Bring Your Book to Life®, you will be able to:
- Call upon your writing coach and mentor (that’s me!) when you need expert guidance, support or feedback.
- Keep your creative fires burning brightly, break through resistance, conquer writer’s block and truly enjoy the process of writing and editing.
- Quickly call upon and connect with your own “Creative Muse” any time you need a boost of inspiration or fresh ideas.
- Discover and develop your authentic writing voice and unique style.
- Feel confident in your writing ability as you hone your skills and receive feedback and suggestions.
- Use your outline as a writing roadmap so you never feel lost or stuck.
- Enjoy the support, creative brainstorming and camaraderie offered by your fellow authors.
But Before You Get Too Excited, You Need to Know…
This Program Is Not For Everybody.
Bring Your Book to Life® is NOT the best program for you if:
- You’re not passionate about your story or message.
- You don’t feel a deep commitment to write your book at this time.
- You’re looking for a one-size-fits-all, fill-in-the-blank template book writing program.
- You want to write fiction or a children’s book.
- Your book requires extensive research, which hasn’t yet been done.
Okay, I’ll admit. It was thrilling to win the Silver Stevie Award for this program.
But do you want to know what’s even better than winning an award?
The success stories of those who’ve taken the Bring Your Book to Life® program.
3 Chapters in a Week; Book Deal in 6 Months
“I thought about writing a book for 17 years, but I struggled to tell my story. In January 2010, I started Bring Your Book to Life® and the ideas came so fast, I had to pull over when driving in order to take notes. The first set of exercises was so helpful that I outlined the book and wrote three chapters in the first week.
After I completed most of my first draft, Lisa showed me how to fine tune my book proposal. With her help, I got a top agent and signed a book deal. Just a year after I started Lisa’s program, I handed in my final edited chapters to my publisher. Now I’m an award winning published author.”
Signed With a Top Publisher
“I used to think that when it came to writing a book, all you needed was a great idea, and then a publisher would automatically say, “Yes.” Was I ever wrong! Lisa demystified the process and helped me understand exactly what I needed to be successful with my book.
From beginning to end, Lisa’s 8 Week book writing course provides the information you desperately need: from how to conceptualize your book’s message, meaning and value all the way to having a powerful first draft. I wrote my first draft of “The Generosity Plan” in just 60 days in Lisa Tener’s book-writing class. After working with Lisa on my book proposal, I am now a published author with a major publishing house.
If you’re serious, hire an expert and that expert is Lisa. She made sure my proposal was flawless and she helped me find the perfect agent in Jeanne Fredericks. I could never have anticipated publishing my first book under such impressive terms and conditions.”
A Mother Becomes Sought After Keynote Speaker
“Years ago, I started writing a book with my daughter. She had survived childhood cancer and overcome certain learning disabilities, and she wanted to share her journey – our journey – as mother and daughter. But after we started, my daughter was killed by a drunk driver. I needed to finish the book on my own.
I needed a structure. I needed guidance. I needed Lisa. So, I joined Lisa Tener’s Bring Your Book to Life®, and I got everything I needed… and a lot more. Much more than I expected.
Not only did I get structure and guidance, but I received Lisa’s support and the support of my fellow students for many months after I finished the course. We became a community of authors, ready to support each other and give each other ideas.
The best part about this program is that you stay inspired and eager to keep going. You’re inspired to make your book the best that it can be. And Lisa gives you the tools and guidance you need to write a book you can be proud of.
But writing and publishing my book was just the beginning for me. I was able to get actress Jane Seymour to write the foreword for my book. I’ve been invited to be a Keynote Speaker at a very large Dance Conference for dance teachers and dance educators in Hawaii in 2014. And I’m also going to be a presenter at the upcoming Rhode Island Chapter of the Association of American University of Women. Plus, I’ve been interviewed on many local and national radio shows.
And the book just came out two months ago! None of this would have been possible without Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life® Program.”
“Now My Book Is Published And It’s Changing People’s Lives”
“It all started when I called Lisa in September, 2009, and told her it was now or never. I knew I wanted to write a book, but I needed that extra push and guidance to get started. Less than a year later, I held my book in my hands.
After her eight-week course, I’d completed eight of the ten chapters. The weekly sessions helped me find my focus, held me accountable to my own goals, and provided some great strategies, creative ideas, and practical marketing advice. A few months ago, I published my book, Stuck with Mr. Wrong, and already I’ve heard from women who told me my book changed their lives. I highly recommend Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life® Program.”
“Greater success than I ever anticipated”
“I joined Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life® Program because I’m teaching, I run a business, I’m very time strapped and I knew that I would need a set program in order to actually get a book launched. Lisa had the system together to motivate me and keep me disciplined.
Lisa is very passionate about what she does and is also extremely supportive. She balances that support with a great way of holding you accountable.
The goal from starting was to actually work on a book proposal but I got more done than I anticipated – I got about half the book written and I have my proposal pretty much done—a lot more progress and much greater success than I ever anticipated.”
“My Book Is Now Getting Rave Reviews and Endorsements”
“I joined Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life® Program because I wanted the accountability to write, finish and take my book to market. And I was able to do just that. And more.
Not only did I finish and publish my book, I was able to get incredible testimonials from well-known and respected leaders in my field… like Joe Vitale, Marci Shimoff and Bob Doyle. As a first-time author, this is an incredible coup for me. And I know I wouldn’t have had the confidence to ask for those endorsements without Lisa’s program.
I also know that my book would not have been brought to life without the help of this program. As I look back on my experience, I realize I learned everything I needed to know about writing, editing, formatting, and marketing — and did I say editing? Because I became a much better writer as a result of this program. And I continue to improve with every newsletter, blog post, web page or flier I create.
Lisa is tireless in her willingness to teach, direct, provide feedback and useful advice. She has a gracious, generous spirit and I couldn’t be happier with the results I’ve achieved with her loving guidance. Both my business and the publicity for my book continue to grow. Thank you, Lisa!”
I can’t wait to show you how easy and rewarding it can be to write your best book, stay inspired and feel confident in your ability to get your book out there… without wasting time, getting stuck or feeling overwhelmed.

Lisa Goes Out of Her Way to Over-Deliver
“In her Bring Your Book to Life® Program, Lisa empowered me to see the bigger vision and the power of my higher self behind my book. She helped me realize that I had the ability to write my book now and gave me a resonant and powerful blend of concrete, specific writing steps.
The course provided gentle-but-firm accountability to commit to accomplishment and get it done. The interactions and exercises in the group helped me come up with some of my most creative ideas, and Lisa and my classmates celebrated both my smallest and biggest successes, which created an upward spiral that pulled me along, rather than being pushed.
Lisa goes out of her way to over-deliver. Without her Bring Your Book to Life® Program, I never would have progressed beyond my outline. I would never have understood how to get in touch with my higher self, who has the answers—answers that my conscious self wouldn’t allow me to see. I would not have persevered without this program.”
