Are You Ready to Actually Finish The Book God Has Laid on Your Heart?

Here’s How You Can Turn the "Ashes" of Past Trauma into the "Beauty" of a Christian Nonfiction Book to Bring Help and Healing to Others for the Kingdom of God.


Book Crafters Academy

Exclusive Christian Trauma-Informed Group Coaching

You don’t want your life lessons to be lost.

You want them to be preserved for others and even for future generations.

You want to do your part to further the Kingdom of God to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

You keep saying to yourself, "I'll get this book done."

You know the Lord has laid this book on your heart.

And you repeat to yourself, "I'll do it. Yes, I will."

  • But you might find that positive self talk isn't doing the job.

Woman stressed out/hands against her head, staring at her computer
  • You're stuck, not knowing where to start or how to get organized.

  • Frustrated and disappointed in yourself.

    Missing this incredibly vital opportunity to share your hard-earned wisdom and experience with others.

    And feeling like you're not fulfilling a crucial aspect of the purpose God made you for.


  • Maybe it feels like writer's block.

    But did you know that one of the most common causes of "writer's block" is FEAR?

      Fear of the Big Project

      Writing a book can be overwhelming, especially when you have a wealth of experience and stories.

      How do you get it all organized?

      How do you decide what to choose and which to leave out?

      How can you even get it to make sense?

      There's a solution for that.

      Just like if you were to build a house, you wouldn’t jump in and start hammering and sawing without a plan.

      You’d build a foundation. Then you’d organize the projects and tackle them one by one.

      Big Projects can be broken down into a series of smaller projects.

      A knowledgeable guide can show you how to do that with your book. 

      Fear of Being an Imposter

      “I am too much” clashes with “I am not enough.”

      Sound familiar?

      It’s part of the confusion and inner turmoil so common for trauma survivors.

      You can feel the same way with your book.

      “My story is too big.”

      “I am too small.”

      “Who am I to be trying to write a book? Who am I to be getting my message out to the world?”

      I feel like an imposter.

      But there’s a solution for that.

      Revisiting who you know you are in Jesus Christ will ground you in truth and shield you from imposter syndrome.

      Understanding the nonfiction book writing process helps bring the unknown to familiar.

      You can move from imposter syndrome to becoming a confident guide for someone else on this journey of life.

      Feeling a Need to Be Perfect

      You want your message to go out to the world, yes.

      But you keep trying to get it perfect.

      It’s what makes you keep re-writing the same paragraph over

      and over

      and over

      and over.

      It’s common for trauma survivors to think that “being perfect” might eventually equate to “being safe.”

      When you want to be perfect, it could be that there’s really something else underlying that desire.

      Fear of ridicule.

      Fear of exposure.

      Fear of vulnerability.

    It's possible to get unstuck from those fears.

    And when these fears—and others like them—are faced for what they are . . .

    And when you have the tools and methods you need . . .

    You’ll be amazed at how capable you are at moving forward.

  • with 

    Book Crafters Academy

    an exclusive vetted small group coaching environment,

    with a trauma-informed Christian coach,

    You can finally write your Christian nonfiction book

    to transform your life lessons into help and healing for others.

    Put Me on the Waitlist!

    Who's the Coach?

    I'm Rebecca Davis, and I've been helping others with their nonfiction books since 2014.

    I've also written 19 nonfiction books of my own. 

    As a trauma-informed book coach, it's my profession and joy to help aspiring authors write their Christian nonfiction books.

    Read more about me here.

    "BCA was so helpful in learning the process of writing a book, as well as the next steps of editing, publishing, launching and promoting. The information that Rebecca shared was so helpful and is pure gold. Her one-on-one coaching was amazing. 

    I had wanted to write a book for quite a while and felt that I had a compelling story, but I really didn't know where to start or how to organize it.

    I didn't quite understand what the process would be for writing a book, and it seemed overwhelming. 

    I had read some of Rebecca's books and really liked them. I also saw on her website that she had worked with several authors I was familiar with, and I liked their books as well.

    Rebecca helped me see that my personal story, subject matter, and content are valid and compelling and would make a good book. She helped me see how a book will fit well with the other things that I'm doing with my ministry.

    She also helped me organize some of my thoughts and gave me a good starting point and direction. 

    Rebecca can help take a 'dream' of writing a book and turn it into a reality. She is easy to work with, understanding, and encouraging.


    She can help give an overall picture of a writing project and also help with direction and steps on how to proceed.

    The first time tackling a project is hard, because it's the first time and there are so many things to learn. But having Rebecca there to walk alongside us and share what she has learned from doing this so many times is invaluable and helped me see that this can be done, and can be done well. I think my book will be so much better and of higher quality because of doing BCA."

    This will be a few select aspiring authors who have deep life experience and wisdom that they are passionate to share with others.

    Are you one of this group?

    You’ll be learning all my secrets to help you get your book out of your head, organized, and beautifully completed.

    • My foundational pre-writing secrets.

    • My mindset secrets.

    • My writing secrets.

    • And more.

    Book Crafters Academy combines the best of all I’ve learned through the years.

    Through coaching and consulting, it's designed to help you

    • Overcome your book-writing fears.

    • Get unstuck in your book-writing process.

    Without needing to be perfect.

    "While I am an experienced writer, telling my own story was triggering. I needed someone willing to deeply understand my story while also keeping the objectivity needed to tell it well. 

    Rebecca’s coaching and editing helped me clarify my message, correct my mistakes, and organize my content to better serve my readers. 

    I chose to work with Rebecca not only because she is trauma-informed, but also because she is grounded in God’s Word, wise, and kind. She has a compassionate heart, an analytical mind, and a gentle spirit."

    What Exactly Is Included in Book Crafters Academy?

    I'm excited to tell you about it!

  • ONE: A multi-day intensive to kick off our work together. Some cohorts meet online and some meet in person in the Greenville, SC, area.

  • At this intensive, we’ll focus on accomplishing the most important part of the book-writing process.

    This part may feel like you’re not really even writing, but when you front-load this, the rest will fall into place.

    As we work on these foundational aspects, you’ll experience a blend of

    •  Group training centered around the craft of writing.

    •  Group consultations regarding the topics we address.

    •  Individual and group coaching for personal issues related to your book.

    We’ll grapple with truth, process through hard things, appreciate the camaraderie of others who "get it," and work on building that essential foundation for our books.

  • TWO: Regular interaction in a social media group exclusive to BCA members.

  • After our intensive, you may find that you're able to help each other in surprising ways. I'll also be in the group on a daily basis to answer questions and provide encouragement.

  • THREE: 8 Zoom conferencing sessions to continue the learning process over the course of 16 weeks.

  • Each every-other-week meeting will provide

    •   Accountability.

    •   Celebrations of progress.

    •  Teaching from me on various Book Crafting topics related to writing, editing, publishing, and marketing your book.

    •  Group coaching and consultation to help us all keep moving forward.

    •  Individual coaching and consultation as time allows.

  • FOUR: 8 bi-weekly sessions of directed virtual co-working.

  • If you've never experienced co-working, you may be surprised at how powerful it is to encourage you and help you stay focused. At the beginning of each session, each BCA member tells what they'll be working on. At the end, each one reports on how the work went.

    Co-working is valuable not only for accountability and encouragement, but also for the "not-alone" feeling of knowing others that you can see are also working on their books at the same time.

  • FIVE: 6 hours of individual coaching and/or consultation with me, scheduled at your convenience.

  • A scheduling link will be available to all BCA members to meet with me for one-on-one help throughout our  weeks together.

  • SIX: Select RDWW services at one-third off, for BCA graduates only.

  • After BCA, services such as editing, manuscript review, self publishing project management, and VIP days will be available to you for a limited time at rates I don't offer anywhere else. This is all to help you finish your life-changing book.

    Click here to get notified when BCA re-opens.

    "I thought it was amazing that Rebecca spent so much time addressing our fears, because it is such a big deal. Knowing she was prepared to address them so thoroughly helped me not feel so weirdly alone in my fear. Clearly, Rebecca understands the process and the pitfalls.

    BCA gave me what I was longing and praying for. And it's been wonderful. My number one takeaway? I can do this. I have clarity about how to begin, how to set up the story, its timeline, and characters. 

    And I am not alone! I have a bunch of sisters invested in what I am doing, and I'm so excited about their work, too. I have this amazing circle of beautiful women. I have support when I get stuck or confused. 

    I absolutely recommend Book Crafters Academy–it was a godsend for me. I knew what I needed to write but was whirling in confusion about how. Rebecca's experience and interest in my message were exactly what I needed. The classes were great and the one-on-one counsel was even better.  My favorite part was untangling the wad of threads alone with Rebecca. And the chats around the table. Especially the last night. 

    BCA has given me the confidence, clarity, and courage I needed. The support and encouragement of the other amazing women; Rebecca's simple, practical, thorough teaching; and her assistant's vibrance and insights combined for an experience I remain in awe of and thank God for. The fellowship and focus of the Academy combined for a mountaintop experience giving me the clarity and courage I needed. I can hardly wait to finish!"

    Gwen Hertzler, Author

    You Were Wondering . . .

    For the intensive, how does the online event differ from the in-person event?

    Each one has advantages and disadvantages.

    With the online intensive, you avoid the hassle and expense of traveling, lodging, and meals. You get to participate in the BCA intensive from the comfort of your home. 

    Participants in the in-person intensive have the advantage of an intimacy with their fellow writers that cannot quite be duplicated in an online group. 

    The in-person intensives are for women only, while the online intensive includes men as well.

    What will be included in the biweekly video classes?

    Every other week for 16 weeks we'll come together over video meeting to celebrate accomplishments, provide accountability, and give each other any tips or resources we've found.

    Each time, I'll provide about 30-45 minutes of teaching on the craft of writing or the business end of book publication.

    We'll answer questions, brainstorm ideas, and work through any blocks or difficulties BCA members are experiencing. 

    These classes will be recorded, and you can have access to them indefinitely.

    Tell me more about scheduling one-on-one sessions with you during the 17 weeks.

    These will be times that you can schedule when I work exclusively with you and your book. During our our intensive and then during the 16 weeks after the intensive, you can schedule up to 6 hours with me for book coaching, book consulting, or manuscript review.

    Tell me more about the reduced rate off your other services.

    After our 16 weeks of Book Crafters Academy comes to a close, I'll offer certain select other services (including editing, manuscript review, coaching, consulting, and self-publishing project management) at one-third off for a limited time. That limited time will end 4 months after the close of your Book Crafters Academy cohort.

    How do I apply?

    Book Crafters Academy is for Christian aspiring authors who are serious about working on their nonfiction book to help others and further the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ.

    When BCA opens, you'll make an appointment to meet with me (Rebecca) via the link you'll be directed to when you sign up. When we meet, you can ask me any questions.

    You can also expect to receive some questions from me, such as:

     -- What are your topic and goal for your Christian nonfiction book?

    -- Where are you in your spiritual journey?

    -- If you have personally experienced trauma, what have you done so far to come to a place of healing and hope?

    -- Are you ready to experience a group dynamic in which we attentively listen to each other and honor each other?

    Since we'll be working together as a group, all of us desiring to further the Kingdom of God through love for our Lord Jesus Christ and love for others, it's crucial that each participant be carefully vetted.

    Is there a payment plan available?

    Yes, if your application is accepted, you'll have the option to pay in full or to pay in 5 monthly installments.

    I have another question.

    Send it to me at [email protected]. If I get the same question more than once, you may eventually see it in this list!

    "Once I got my memories written, I got stuck on how to go forward. I had no idea how to write a book. 

    Cynthia and I prayed about it and then went on a hunt to find some help. Reading through Rebecca’s website felt like divine intervention. All of the major elements in my story [sexual addiction, sexual abuse, trafficking, etc] Rebecca had in her wheelhouse. 

    I didn’t really know what to expect entering into this collaboration, but one thing that did jump out is we shared a passion to bring awareness and healing for others. This gave me comfort that our finding each other was God-appointed, and I knew that He was working in this endeavor to see this book to come together.

    As we got started, my concerns that Rebecca would get the story right faded away pretty quickly. She kept telling me throughout the process, “This is your book, your story,” that she was just here to help me get it into a book format. Her insight and experience with this subject even helped her to cut through blind spots I had going into this. She understood the trauma I came out of and was able to take my experiences and make them a compelling story without losing what happened to me.   

    Nobody knows your story better than you, but if you are like me and didn’t have a clue how to write, I would highly recommend you reach out to Rebecca to help make that dream a reality. I found her extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and very easy to work with. 

    The process of writing and working with Rebecca has been a real pleasure, and I am so thankful for her!"

    Don't miss out on this golden opportunity to grow as a writer.

    Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn from an experienced trauma-informed coach.

    Don't miss out on this opportunity to interact with Christian peers who are serious about their writing journey.

    If you do, you may continue to struggle with writing, continuing to be hindered by fears, doubts, and personal challenges that could be met and resolved

     . . . and you may never finish your book.

    This means you won’t have this powerful vehicle for sharing your story of healing and hope.

    And your opportunity could be lost to make the impact on the world that you long to make.

    Join BCA and create a powerful tool for delivering your life lessons to others.

    You’ll learn a systematic process for writing your book that you can apply to every book you write from now on.

    Every book? Yes, I believe you’ll want to write more after this one. That’s how powerful this process is.

    You’ll have tools, tips, and mindset shifts that you can carry with you into all your future writing.

    You’ll have a community of others who also want to use their book to make a powerful impact, like you.

    You’ll have the satisfaction of working on producing a valuable resource that can spread around the world and last through the generations.

    You’ll have a legacy.

    And when you write that book?

    Your life lessons will not be lost.

    They'll be preserved for others now and for future generations.

    You'll have greater authority to speak and teach what the Lord has taught you in your life journey.

    You don't have to be completely free of all fears.

    (After all, you may not be quite human if you were.)

    You just need a way to deal with them and be able to move forward anyway . . .

    with both Structure and Freedom

    Writing your book needs structure.

    Structure for your book. And structure of your time.

    Writing your book also needs freedom.

    Freedom to explore all those thoughts in your head.

    Freedom to express yourself.

    Freedom to enjoy writing.

    These two, structure and freedom, are two of the secret ingredients that can end "writer's block."


    As you look back on your life in 10 years, 20 years,

    will you have any regrets about how you passed on your hard-won life lessons?

    Don’t have regrets.

    Invest in yourself by joining Book Crafters Academy. 

    Now is the time to get exactly the help you need

    to produce your excellent Christian nonfiction book.
