Hello Genre Novelists! Is this you?

Do you struggle to finish your novel, are overwhelmed and confused, and are writing romance, thriller, suspense, science fiction, fantasy, suspense, mystery, or a combination of these?

Do you have a completed manuscript but are not sure how to edit it?

Do you wrangle with marketing your novel and don't know where to begin?

Do you need help with self-publishing?

Do you yearn for a community of like-minded dedicated novelists?

If you said YES to any of the above, then you're in the right place.

Hello, I'm Beth Barany, a writing coach for novelists and I know exactly how you feel because I am a novelist too, and have struggled through many of the phases you may be experiencing now.

I've translated my 20-plus years experience as a writer and a teacher, mixed it with my knowledge and extensive training, and brought it to you in the form of:

-- a year-long program

-- homestudy courses

-- one-on-one consulting and coaching sessions

-- live courses and trainings

-- and
books for writers

so that you can deliver your stories into the world.

  • We offer live courses through the year too. A current calendar is here.


  • If you've lost your motivation for writing, want to find your motivation in the first place, or want to get moving on your novel after a break, start small.

    Sign up here to get my free 5-Day Writer's Motivation Mini-Course.

    It's designed to help you discover your writing purpose or rediscover your purpose for writing your novel in the first place.




"Beth Barany works with genre novelists one-on-one and in groups to help them write, publish, and market their books."

“Beth has a way of evoking motivation and inspiration out of me, by just being, listening and encouraging in a subtle way which is perfect for me. I think she understands what I need as a writer. I find myself working harder and accomplishing much more in such a short amount of time, my story is pushing right out of me. She is one of my allies.” -- Karen Lodrick, San Francisco, CA

Who Beth Barany primarily works with:

Beth helps genre novelists write, publish and promote their books through one-on-one coaching and consulting, presentations and keynotes, and through her books.

My Mission

I'm a writer too -- a young adult fantasy and paranormal romance author -- with 2 novels and 3 novellas published.

Let's build successful and sustainable author careers.

Let's bring art and business together. Here's why.

Because we can and because, believe it or not, we are well suited to bring our story creation skills to marketing our books.

(If you can learn to write a novel that's true to you, you can learn to market your books in a way that is true to you.)

And because we are bold and brave and face the unknown on the page on a daily basis.
