Finalist of 2017 New Generation Indie Book Awards and 2017 International Book Awards

Two Major Book Awards

“I love working with Lisa Tener. She is a superb book coach and editor. Lisa was a major player in helping me start (and complete!) my book, Success Without Stress: Simple Steps to Finding Calm for Women Business Owners.

“Thanks to Lisa, my book has won two books awards in the category of Women’s Issues: Finalist in both the 2017 New Generation Indie Book Awards and 2017 International Book Awards.

“As a first time author, I needed huge amounts of basic info, a smart plan of action, skillful editing and plenty of encouragement. Lisa provided it all. She also improved my writing skills 100%. My sentences are now clearer, concise and more impactful. As I continue to write, I hear Lisa’s voice in my head suggesting ways to make my ideas and sentences stronger.

“In addition to Lisa’s fabulous creative ideas and marketing skills, she’s fun to work with. She made the process inspiring so I kept on writing. Lisa was also instrumental in helping me promote my book—writing an article in her newsletter, adding photos on Facebook and posting congratulation updates on LinkedIn. A total bonus.

“Lisa’s energy and enthusiasm are contagious. Once I started working with Lisa, I felt a huge sense of relief. I danced around the living room to Here Comes the Sun.”

Two offers and a book deal with Prospect Park Books

My book, a travel narrative about living in Vietnam among the poor, was hard to write. But writing a compelling proposal was even harder—or at least it was until I found Lisa Tener to help me with it. She guided me each step of the way. Lisa had so many great ideas, I could hardly write them down fast enough. I came away with an amazing proposal that was so effective, that I had the rare and wondrous experience of having to choose between two publishing houses with offers.

I was thrilled when Kirkus Review called my book, “A lighthearted memoir of new friends, delicious food, and culture shock.” And Library Journal Review said, “Esterhammer creates laugh-out-loud moments of at times daunting or utterly embarrassing experiences.”

“What I appreciated most about working with Lisa is her ability to give meaningful and motivating feedback, keep me focused, and deliver editorial advice and then some. She is quick, responsive and a delight to work with.”

Finalist in The Southhampton Review, Frank McCourt Prize in 2016 and Honorable Mention in Stillhouse Press Contest

Book Deal with Stillhouse Press

“If you’re like me you get so close to your writing that you can lose perspective. That’s when I was very lucky to have met and worked with book coach, Lisa Tener. She was helpful at several levels of preparation for my book proposal and book, American Snake Pit, a memoir about my work in deinstitutionalizing, Willowbrook, the worst asylum in American history. Her skill in organizing, shaping, editing, and honing the text improved the quality and readability. This was confirmed when the manuscript won honorable mention in Stillhouse Press contest, and became a finalist in The Southhampton Review, Frank McCourt Prize in 2016.

“I know that without Lisa’s help these honors would not have happened. “They were followed by a book contract with Stillhouse Press, who will publish American Snake Pit in the Spring of 2018, with a launch at the AWP conference in Tampa March 7-10, 2018. To date, the screenplay for American Snake Pit has received a dozen honors at national and international film festivals.

“Lisa knows what she is doing and how to motivate her clients. I highly recommend talking with her about your book idea, proposal, or manuscript. Her clarity, sensitivity, and professionalism shine at every level. Let her take a look. Your book’s chances are better with Lisa on your team.”

“Do you want to publish a best seller? You need Lisa!”

“I went to the 2014 San Francisco Writers Conference looking for a coach to rescue my real estate book. I was troubled by voice, the right balance of light and dark, humor and helpfulness. Within minutes of meeting Lisa, I knew I had found The Guru.

“I interviewed six other book coaches at the conference, spent fifteen minutes with each, and Lisa gave me more insight than all the others combined. She got into my head, totally grasping what I wanted to accomplish, and within five minutes came up with brilliant suggestions that I hadn’t even considered (for free – she didn’t even sign me before starting to share!)

“I knew that in hiring Lisa my book would have the eyes of a master on it—one who has proven results with the Big Six publishers. I am going indie, so I knew I needed her expertise even more. We have just finished editing, and I am beyond thrilled with the results.

“Your book only gets one chance to become a top seller. Don’t risk it. Let Lisa make it the best it can be.”

Many, many thanks to Lisa Tener for sharing so much wisdom, knowledge and a logical systematic approach for getting my book from the dream state to a reality!

Lisa’s fervent belief that I would get my book published inspired me to keep moving ahead with the work required and her guidance and feedback on the book proposal helped me write an engaging book proposal that resulted in a publishing contract and a published book.

A second publisher has approached me to write a book proposal on a related subject and  I am excited to see what will unfold. I will be using all Lisa’s materials to guide me as I step back into my writing work.

“Lisa is A Wise Woman in the World of Books.”

Gus Ferrer, MD and Burke Lennihan, RN

Author of Cough Cures (co-author)

Lisa helped forge a remarkable collaboration between a prominent physician and a holistic health care expert. Particularly helpful was Lisa’s guidance on how to merge our quite different voices.

Lisa Tener’s coaching is invaluable, both in creating the book itself and in launching the fledgling out of the nest into successful publishing. First she coaxes the book out of you, holding the vision of your overarching message so you don’t lose sight of it through the writing process. She creates a bridge between what you want to share and what readers are looking for in your field, therefore making a successful and saleable book.

And when you get stuck in the process, as we all do, Lisa acts like a combination of a cheerleader and a coach, helping us get past that stuck place.

Lisa is equally valuable for the other half of the equation – getting the book published, because she really knows the ropes. Her advice is essential especially now when the publishing world is changing so quickly. Finally, she can connect you with a team of publicity experts and others to polish, publish and promote your book.

Lisa is a joy to work with: endlessly encouraging, smart and experienced, wonderfully articulate in her suggestions, generously available to her clients – a true wise woman for the publishing world.

“Lisa Tener is outstanding! She’s the reason my co-author and I are getting published this fall. I was fortunate to meet Lisa at the Harvard Book Publishing course in Boston many years ago and we stayed in touch.

“As a clinician, navigating the book publishing world is like entering a foreign land without a map or guide. Lisa helped us understand the publishing world and guided us through the overwhelming book proposal process. She helped clarify our vision and create a timeline so we could write a proposal that captured our purpose in an effective manner.

“What’s more, Lisa Tener personally reached out to me when I felt the book wasn’t my calling or the timing wasn’t right. Lisa is the one person who believed in me and pushed me to realize that it would happen and that it needed to happen.

“As a result, our cookbook for athletes and fit people, Real Fit Kitchen, will be published in October 2015 by Fair Winds Press. Thanks Lisa!”

“I felt lost until I found Lisa Tener. Lisa helped me get essential clarity by focusing in on both what I felt most passionate about and what would make the book most meaningful and appealing to publishers and readers.

“I signed up for her Bring Your Book to Life Program for the structure to complete my book–and I did complete the entire manuscript in eight weeks. 

“Under Lisa’s guidance, I also worked on my book proposal and platform. She guided me to pitch to Psychology Today where I now blog, and advised me about media opportunities. I’ve now appeared on the Today Show twice!

“Lisa’s expert assistance with my book proposal and platform, her guidance with agents, and her advice to attend Harvard Medical School’s publishing course where Lisa serves on the faculty, all helped me secure a top agent. And now my book has been published by New World Library.

“Lisa continues to send me links to articles or blog posts to comment on. In one case, this led to wide-ranging publicity including interviews, a scholarly journal reference, and speaking invitations. In fact over a year later that one article continues to rack up about 5-10,000 new views each week. Lisa has lots of good ideas and she also seems to have an intuitive knack of knowing when and where to put your efforts!”

6-Figure Deal with HarperCollins

Craig Malkin, PhD

Author of Rethinking Narcissism

Lisa has enough wisdom and experience in her to help launch a thousand books. Take the opportunity to learn from her now.

When I first met Lisa I was lost–I mean, completely lost. I had plenty of ideas–enough, in fact, to excite several agents after I pitched them–but when it came to crafting a book proposal, I really had no clue where to begin. Not that I didn’t try.

I made the rounds myself, shopped to agents who’d initially been excited to speak to me, and managed to turn them off with a sloppy book proposal almost as quickly as I’d gotten their attention. I went from “please seem me,” after a conference to “your book just isn’t for me,” all in a matter of months. Ouch.

So I threw down a cup of coffee, plopped myself into my coziest armchair, and called Lisa Tener. From the start, she was brimming with ideas to turn my situation around. Over the course of a month, she helped me whip my proposal into shape, launch a platform (she even got me my first radio interview!) and sharpen my ideas enough to get the attention of several top agents.

And all this, you’ll be glad to know, has a very happy ending: eventually I landed a six-figure book deal with HarperCollins.

Throughout it all, Lisa was my coach, my mentor, my teacher, my friend, and my cheerleader. And she still is.

Lisa gave me constructive guidance on my book and proposal in such a way that I never felt criticized but always uplifted.

My first review just appeared in Publisher’s Weekly and it’s a winner. Lisa is a terrific coach, and part of the credit for this book belongs to her.

Jane Seymour Wrote the Foreword; Featured on National TV

Susan Rizzo Vincent

Author of Dreas' Dream

Years ago, I started writing a book with my daughter. She had survived childhood cancer and overcame 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 and Marie Osmond shared it on national TV! The book boosted my speaking  engagements. Plus, I’ve been interviewed on national TV and radio.

None of this would have been possible without Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life Program.

Author of Embracing The Teardrops: A Simple, Step-by-Step Guide to Planning a Funeral That Is Dignified, Memorable, and Affordable

Lisa is the guardian angel who helped me become a published author: at the end of every speaking engagement, I mention the wonderful writing coach I found on the internet at 3 in the morning. When I followed up by phone the next day she was just as caring and sincere as the words that hug her website.

Lisa’s 8 week program helped me write the first draft of my book in 12 weeks. (Nothing to do with Lisa teaching—merely my hectic work schedule as a funeral director). Before taking Lisa’s course, each time I wrote a few pages I always got stuck and lost interest. I also had doubts that I had anything new to say. Lisa teaches you how to overcome those roadblocks.

At my book signing I had well over 300 people in attendance. My book has opened the door to speaking engagements, including keynotes—from small groups to several hundred at a time.

Just last week a 99-year-old woman walked into my office wanting to plan her funeral ahead of time. She held an autographed copy of Embracing the Teardrops with hand written notes stuck between the pages and excitingly shared with me that my book was an easy read, entertaining and a great help to her.

Lisa is definitely the go to person when it comes to drafting your first book.

The use of videos has helped me reach more people, and it resulted in my first book.

With Lisa’s encouragement I became a Huffington Post blogger. Lisa’s recent editorial suggestions for a Huffington Post piece yielded a significant increase in reader engagement. My subscriber list grew by more than 50%! If you want a simplistic plan boasting outlandish promises, don’t contact Lisa. But if you want someone who will listen to you and help bring out your best, Lisa is the mentor for you!

I have had the opportunity to hear Lisa Tener speak on several occasions, at business conferences, inspirational events, workshops and in her 8 week book writing class.  She is one of the most engaging, dynamic speakers I have ever met.  She imparts on her students a strong sense of the writing process and current state of the publishing industry.  But perhaps more important, Lisa had the ability to engage me in each session, so that I always left with a clear plan of action – an understanding of the next steps I needed to take my dream of writing and publishing my book to the next level.  Her insight into the publishing world is extremely helpful to first time authors.  Lisa Tener would be an excellent choice for any panel, conference, or speaker series.

I found the magic formula for writing a book: Structure of Book Writing Course + Lisa’s Personal Guidance = Successful Book Completion. I enrolled in Lisa’s book-writing course and completed my final draft of Reinvent Your Life–Write Now. I loved Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life(R) Program so much, I took it again to write my second book!

An Aha Moment and Published Workbook

In class, I found a way to make the book much more engaging and easy to use–and I had an ‘aha’ moment when my workbook went from straight workbook to a compelling story. Not only will the workbook be much more effective for students, but I realize the potential for a published book as well. I highly recommend this class.

“In writing The Struggle for Kirkuk I discovered that writing a book is not as difficult and complicated as writing a book proposal.

“Publishers are tough and demanding, and a good book proposal is essential in presenting your book in the best possible light. I was lucky to find Lisa, who provided me with a clear sense of what goes into writing a book proposal. I was profoundly impressed by her expertise, and her unreserved dedication to her client. Working with her was an education and a joy. I recommend her to you without any reservation.”

“Lisa Knows What Readers Want”

Nora Hall

Author of Survive Your Husband’s Retirement

Lisa Tener’s Bring Your Book To Life® class was the catalyst that enabled me to write the book I had been thinking about for months. Her inspiration and energy inspired me to create an outline and start writing the first week of the class. As time went on, her belief in this project helped me visualize holding the book in my hands, and consequently, to complete the first draft by the end of the class. That did not end Lisa’s support, however. She continually shares her brilliant ideas for promoting the book as well as her enthusiasm and connections in support of this work.

Lisa knows what readers want and does a remarkable job of helping writers discover the voice that speaks best to their reading audience. I feel quite fortunate to know such a caring, knowledgeable and capable writing coach.

“Lisa Over Delivers”

Monica Strobel

Author of The Compliment Quotient

In her Bring Your Book to Life Program, Lisa empowered me to see the bigger vision of the power of my higher self behind my book. Lisa provided a uniquely resonant and powerful blend of concrete, specific writing steps, and visionary expansion.?

Lisa and my classmates celebrated my smallest and big successes, creating an upward spiral that pulled me along, rather than pushed. Lisa enabled me to understand that I had, where I was, the ability to write this book.

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.

Without Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life Program, I would never have gotten past the outline, ? I would have never have understood as much about getting in touch with my higher-self who knows the answers—answers that my conscious self wouldn’t allow me to see. I would not have persevered without this program.

Lisa goes out of her way to over-deliver.

“I found my voice.”

Maureen Hancock

Author of The Medium Next Door

I kept putting my hopes of writing a book on hold, because I felt I couldn’t do it. Lisa’s soft nudges and inspirational energy make me feel nurtured yet expertly guided. Lisa helped me find my voice and enjoy writing, despite being a novice.

Even with little free time on my part, Lisa has helped me to breathe life into the writing gave it a life of its own. I achieved more with Lisa in two months than in 5 years of attempting to do this myself.

Lisa helped me with my book proposal and chapters and I signed a contract with a major publisher. We sold 15,000 books in the first month. Thanks, Lisa.

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. On the drive home, the ideas came so fast, I had to pull over and 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 Tener guided me and fine tuned 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

I published my book, Stuck with Mr. Wrong, a few months ago and already have heard from women that my book has changed their lives. It all started when I called Lisa nine months ago 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. I highly recommend Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life Program.

An Energetic Shift–and Published!

Jane Bernstein (co-author)

Author of Saving Richard

Investing in Lisa’s Bring Your Book to Life® Program was an energetic shift for me – I am finally taking myself seriously as an author.

Even though I’ve been a freelance writer and editor for years, the experience was worthwhile and rich. I completed a book I’d been working on for 5 years, and got a lot of clarity and excellent input on a second book, which I wrote a very rough draft of during the program. Our 8 classes (over 10 weeks) kept me moving steadily forward; I looked forward to meeting each Friday with Lisa and the talented and insightful writers in our group. We seemed to create a current of momentum together that moved each of us forward powerfully – in our lives and our books.

Published with incredible endorsements

Stacy Corrigan

Author of Manifest Your Man

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.

My book would not have been brought to life without the help of Lisa Tener’s Bring Your Book to Life Program®. 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. I wouldn’t have had the confidence to ask for those endorsements without Bring Your Book to Life®.

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.

Lisa was truly gifted with helping me stay on track

Bridget Engel

Author of Guidance to Go

For years, I had a secret longing within me to write a book. Yet, when I would sit down to write I would surge ahead and then come to a screeching halt. I did not know how to organize my materials, and my ideas would spring out in 10 different directions simultaneously; and my inner doubts and fears would say things to me like, “The world does not need another spiritual book” and, “By the way, your English sucks.” My life changed when I put my foot down and I asked the universe to bring me a person to help me organize and show me how to write my book. That very afternoon, April 27th, I went to my inbox and I found Lisa Tener’s Bring your Book to Life® Program. I signed up and we started April 29th, a day after my Birthday. I learned what a first, second and third draft meant, I learned that you did not have to do this by yourself, and that you have an editor to help polish your manuscript. I thought you sat down and it came out perfectly the first time. Lisa was truly gifted with helping me stay on track, with structure, and accountability. The biggest game changer for me was, she held me and the other participants already as an Author. This was a powerful transformation for me and it changed the way I viewed myself and my confidence soared. A message that I received while I was writing was “Act as if no one has written about your topic before, and you know what to say.” Lisa, I can’t thank you enough, you have been instrumental in changing my life.

Oceans of gratitude, Bridget

I just returned from Paris and England, where I taught workshops based on my book If You Want an Eggroll, Get Out of the Pizzeria.  My book languished in the planning stages for many years until I met Lisa. Lisa developed the action plan and held my hand to bring my book to fruition. She guided me through all the stages—including multiple edits—and made all the difference. The day I clicked on my book selling on Amazon I called Lisa with tears in my eyes. Being a published author opened doors to speak, travel and—most important—meet amazing people that are inspired by my story. Thank you Lisa for being an essential part of this journey.

She easily cuts through the complexities of the publishing world. You could feel the excitement building in the room as attendees envisioned holding their published book in their hands.

Professional Book Proposals that Get Results

“I remember ranking a book proposal that had been guided by Lisa Tener as the best of a recent Harvard Medical School CME Course so I was thrilled when she referred one of her book-writing students to me. 

“As anticipated, the proposal was clear, convincing, well organized and ready to sell. 

“For qualified authors who have a marketable book in the works, I recommend that they consider drawing on Lisa’s expertise and classes to help them polish their sample chapters and construct a winning proposal. She has the experience and talent that can make the difference between having a good submission packet and one that is professional and gets results.”

“I had no confidence I could actually write a book, especially due to low marks in English at university. I thought I would need a ghostwriter. However, after finding Lisa Tener on Google, Lisa found me the perfect book coach and editor in Stuart, who also does ghostwriting. In my case, though, it turned out it was not a ghostwriter that I needed. The words were in me. I needed someone to listen, coach and massage my words–and Stuart provided exactly that.

“The experience was quite simply amazing. My book went on sale in December and I sold 8,000 copies before Christmas! And that’s just the beginning. Thanks, Lisa for connecting me with Stuart and providing your ongoing support over the past year and a half.”

When I decided to write a book about my years of fundraising, my world record attempts and the quirky ways I raise money for charity, I didn’t know how to put all the ideas in my head unto the written page. It seemed impossible!
But that was before I contacted Lisa, who cleared all doubts and guided me.
Lisa connected me to an excellent writer, Kelly, who captured my voice and brought my crazy escapades to life. Kelly–just a skype call away–always made me feel relaxed, like I had known her for years.
Both Lisa and Kelly led me to additional resources to bring my book to life and now A World of Good is about to be published.
I couldn’t have done it without Lisa and Kelly.
