Your Readers are Waiting!
I believe that everyone has a book inside of them waiting to be birthed into the world.
When did you first realize that you have an inner author deep within your soul?
When did you first notice the urge to create your legacy through your writing?
I believe that every one of us has a hidden author within. Some of us become aware of this from a very early age and make the decision when we are children that we WILL become authors, or others, like me, realize later on in life!
What about you?
Over the years, I have met with and supported many first-time and seasoned authors who have shared how their journey began when they were children. They loved writing stories, poetry, and even making their own little books.
So, what about you? When did you decide that you wanted to write your first or next book?
It is time to share your story or message with the world. Don’t leave it any longer, allow your voice to be heard. Someone is waiting to receive your wisdom.
How long ago was it that you felt your first urge? Whenever it was, know that there is someone waiting to receive your wisdom.
Are you ready to answer their call?
Everyone is different and some start later on, like me … I had no desire to be an author. Or, that’s what I told myself. I think that it’s the perfect time for me to introduce myself.
I believe that everyone has a book inside of them waiting to be birthed into the world.
I support authors like you in tapping into your brilliance as an author and supporting you in birthing your book or other soul projects. Think of me as your very own book midwife. I am there with you from that initial idea, to gaining clarity with your vision, to finding the best team to support your vision and right through to birthing your book (publishing, promoting and beyond). I support you as much or as little as you need.
The best part is that I am also an experienced author myself. So, I am supporting you from my experience and sharing my expertise and not something I learned from a book.
One of my proudest moments was when I became an author for the very first time. I had no idea whether or not my writing would be good enough, or whether people would want to read it. I wasn’t one of those authors who started writing as a child because my bubble burst completely when I was younger.
You see, when I was around 15, my English Literature teacher at the time told me that she was not putting me forward to do the English Literature O’Levels exam because she didn’t think I would pass. She was probably right, but we will never know, because she gave me permission to accept failure. In my teens, I didn’t have a voice, to object, I was taught to respect my elders and those in authority because they knew best and they are always right.
I spent the rest of my teens and early adulthood thinking that I was a poor reader because I read really slow. I thought I would be rubbish at writing, had a limited vocabulary, and that I just wasn’t good enough academically.
I spent most of my 20s and some of my 30s gaining qualification after qualification – BSc (Hons) Computing and Business, Masters in Business Administration and numerous coaching, mentoring IT service management, project management and other qualifications … i could go on, but I will stop there, you get the drift! I was over qualified for many, yet, there was always this niggling feeling of being a poor reader, even after the qualifications.
So, when an opportunity came up after I had started my coaching and mentoring business, to write a chapter in a collaborative book my initial insecurities visited briefly, then I decided to just go for it! I shared a story in Women of Power, Women of Destiny: Moving from Fear to Faith to Freedom. That entire writing journey was filled with many ups and downs:
On so many occasions, I thought there was no way I would share my story, yet I mustered up everything inside to get my chapter of 2000 words completed and shared. This journey made me realize just how amazing an author I was.
Since then, I have had others contact me ans share that my story in that book was so inspiring to them and that they made significant changes in their lives just from my stotry. I was bitten by the writing bug … I did my own anthology with a group of 7 other authors when we shared The Power of Your Inner Brilliance which was released in November 2019.
Since then, I’ve been published in three further collaborative books two of which I managed.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Debbie Belnavis-Brimble, an amazing author, editor, mentor, and coach galore! When I started writing my book four years ago, I felt stuck because I lacked direction and guidance to birth my dream book. I spent thousands of dollars in publishing costs and believed my book would end up in the dumpster. However, Debbie saved the day!
Not only did Debbie share techniques, tips and step-by-step strategies to publishing my book, she worked tirelessly to revise, edit, and layout my manuscript to the highest standards! Consequently, my book was published and became an Amazon bestseller in many categories.
Debbie’s high level of professionalism and warm, down-to-earth personality are a rare, refreshing, and most welcoming to the daunting process of writing and publishing a book.
I highly recommend Debbie for anyone wanting to write a book and receive stellar, topnotch coaching, mentoring and support in every way and every stage of writing. She will help you step into your writing journey and emerge as a published author.”
