AUTHOR & BOOK COACH

Hey, I'm Dallas!

I’ve spent the past two decades immersed in the publishing industry, building my career as a best-selling author of five books and counting. As a book coach, I have helped dozens of women birth their books and live their dreams. I don’t just want you to be a published author – I want you to be a THRIVING author, confidently sharing your ideas, making an impact with your words, and owning your unique voice that deserves to be heard!

Joyful Book Marketing: a monthly course & community

Do you feel overwhelmed when you think about marketing your book? Do you feel like a browser window with fifty tabs open at the same time, unable to focus and certain you're "doing it wrong"? Do you feel a ton of pressure to "up" your marketing game, but you keep procrastinating because "marketing" feels in line with scheduling a dentist appointment or doing your taxes?

You're not alone, my friend. That's why I created Joyful Book Marketing, my new monthly course & community that will empower you with simple checklists and digestable information so that you can spread the word about your book in a way that energizes you and taps into your beautifully authentic spirit.

"There is no one in the world who could have bought this book out of me the way Dallas did. She is an absolute superstar and fountain of writing knowledge. I have such respect and gratitude for Dallas and the way she helped me bravely bring my book into the world."

Melissa DaSilva, LICSW, Executive Life Coach, and author of THE PROFITABLE PRACTICE

“Dallas’s program was just what I needed to get my book out of my head and onto paper. Every week, I looked forward to our coaching calls and her positive energy. I never thought I would be a published author, but Dallas made it happen. I recommend her program to anyone who is dreaming of writing a book. I know I will definitely be using her services again for my next writing adventure."

Brianna Wilkerson, Holistic Health and Life Coach, Podcaster, and Essential Oils Advocate

"The live support that Dallas offers and how she customizes it to each person is crucial to moving forward in your book. It takes you so much further than if you try to go it alone without that support. Even though this is a group atmosphere, it feels so customized and personalized, which is so important in whatever phase of writing your book you are in."
