with Stacy Ennis
Write your book and step into your purpose with this accelerated author program.
Are you ready to grow your influence, impact, and wealth?
You have a book inside you—a compelling idea, story, or insight that needs to be shared. You know becoming an author will allow you to influence more people and even change lives. You recognize writing a book is key to unlocking your potential professionally and personally, and that a book can lead to a dramatic increase in visibility and income. And yet, your book is still unwritten.
Maybe you’re . . .
Unsure of how to even start
Overwhelmed and don’t know how you’ll find time to write
Uncertain of your ability to write an entire book
Asking yourself, “Who am I to write a book?”
And deep down, uncertain anyone would want to read what you have to write
This accelerated author program will help you get unstuck—and get started on your journey to authorhood. I’ll provide you with the step-by-step system, tools, coaching, and encouragement to write an excellent nonfiction book you are proud to share with the world.
— Misty Schachtell-Megia
I’ve been right where you are now.
When I started writing my first book in 2012, I was uncertain of my own ability. I doubted my ideas, expertise, and story. Self-doubt stalled my success.
But even though I was afraid of failure (and success), I wrote it anyway. And then I wrote another book. And another. Along the way, my income doubled and doubled again. My latest coauthored book became a #1 bestseller alongside books by Brené Brown, Rachel Hollis, and Stephen Covey.
I’ve now flown all over the world delivering keynotes and trainings, and have influenced thousands through my writing and speaking. And I’m convinced that’s all because I was brave enough to sit down, write, and publish my first book. My life would be completely different if I hadn’t said “yes” to that book and stepped into my purpose.
You can have an incredible level of impact—but first, you have to take brave action and write your book. Luckily, I have a system that will help you.
Your step-by-step book-writing process is here.
Drawing on my work with hundreds of aspiring authors, I developed a step-by-step system to help uncover your unique story, organize your ideas, and write a powerful nonfiction book you’re proud to share with the world. Over twelve weeks, you’ll walk through targeted trainings, live workshops, and deep-dive group coaching sessions alongside a community of driven future authors.
I’ll guide you through each step of writing your nonfiction book, from idea to finished manuscript, and teach you a clear process to take the guesswork out of writing and unleash your creative genius—even if you don’t think you’re a writer!
Think of me as your expert guide, your biggest supporter, and a coach who cares deeply about helping you finally write a book that will catapult you toward your purpose. Plus, you’ll be journeying alongside a world-changing cohort of motivated future authors. Powerful.
I’ll guide you on your journey to authorhood.
Signature nonfiction book-writing system
Get access to a proven system, education, and tools to help you write a book you’re proud to share with the world.
Transformative author experience
Accountability, community, and access to me
I’m a best-selling author and coach on a mission to help you utilize the power of writing to clarify your ideas, stand out in a crowd, and make an impact. I’ve been called the “book whisperer” because of my ability to help people translate their ideas and stories into a compelling book.
Over the last ten-plus years in the publishing industry, I’ve written, ghostwritten, coached, edited, or influenced hundreds of books. I also served as the long-time ghostwriter for a Nobel Prize winner in medicine and as executive editor of a national magazine that reached around 11 million readers. I’ve trained leaders from Starbucks, The Boeing Company, Intuit, and more.
I’ve been obsessed with writing and books since second grade. As a child, I learned the power of writing and reading as a tool of influence, and knew my life path would somehow converge with the written word. Today, I’ve been in business for twelve years, during which I lived on four continents, worked with hundreds of incredible impact-makers, and had two amazing kids. In all that time, my vision never faltered: I knew I was meant to help people share their ideas through writing.
Today, I live my dream every single day. And let me tell you, it’s better than I imagined.
This course will teach you a clear, step-by-step system to write a nonfiction book, even if you’re busy (yes, really!).
Develop an action plan to start—and finish—your book instead of just talking about it

DEFINE YOUR VISION AS AN AUTHOR
You’re writing a book as part of a bigger mission and purpose. In this training (available before the program begins), I’ll walk you through how to articulate the impact you want to have as an author, starting with your big vision for your life. You’ll receive the life visioning guide I use with all my private coaching clients to help you understand how to thoughtfully engage in creating a vision. Clarity of vision will help you dig deep when you’re in the thick of writing—and find meaning in the transformative process of book writing (and it is life changing!). Plus, with a clear why, you’ll be much more likely to finish your draft and share it with the world.

Author love (aw, thanks!)
“Just a quick note to say thank you for how truly wonderful you are. You have no idea how helpful you have been on this book journey for me (though I bet you can guess!). Thank you for your wisdom, encouragement, expertise, and contacts. Book writing is HARD—harder than I gave it credit for—and having you as a part of this journey has made it so much easier. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
“Thank you for all that you have done for me and all the learning throughout this experience of typing 100,248 words. It’s been a journey of major self-development. I am grateful for this experience, Nonfiction Book School, and my friends made during this time.”
“The strategic book coaching Stacy did for my book LAUNCH: How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt-Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward gave me the structure, clear direction, and shaping that netted me a long string of 100% five-star reviews on Amazon, plus thousands of dollars in royalties in my very first week after release. She is infinitely gentle, positive, kind, and supportive to work with. Five stars. Highly, highly recommended.”
“Stacy helped me clarify my goals, create a reader-friendly structure, and develop a writing schedule that meshed with my already-more-than-full-time job. She coached me regularly to improve my writing and sharpen my ideas. Most importantly, she provided unending positive reinforcement to keep me going to complete a first draft. Stacy, I couldn’t have done this without you. I owe you gigantic thanks.”
“Fantastic. I have tried to write a book countless times before and I’ve never been able to see it through. Stacy’s program gave me the foundations, structure, and support needed to make it happen. I now have a skill that I can use for my next book! Thank you, Stacy!”
“Stacy to the rescue! She made everything so easy. I wholeheartedly recommend her. I knew I needed help writing a book on my marketing methodology. She guided me with her thoughtful process and coaching, and now my book is being published by a highly competitive publisher. I have been able to expand into other offerings, increasing my income and influence.”

What are you looking for in students? Am I a good fit for the program?
Nonfiction Book School is made up of a community of vibrant, driven, forward-moving people who are out to make a difference in this world.
If you are an individual who is driven to share an idea or story with the world, and want to grow your influence, impact, and wealth, you are probably a great fit for the program. Many NBS students are professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders, or bighearted individuals who see a book as a catalyst toward their bigger purpose. Some want to write a book because it’s been a lifelong goal or they have a compelling story to share.
You don’t need to be an established writer or have a fully fleshed out book idea—heck, you don’t even have to know what you want to write about! I’ll help you with that. And if you’re dealing with self-doubt about whether you’re “successful enough” to apply, kick that negative self-talk to the curb! You don’t have to be superhuman or uber successful to write a book. You just need to show up and do the work.
When does the program begin?
The program starts Tuesday, April 19, 2022, and runs through Tuesday, July 5, 2022.
How much time do I need to commit each week to be successful?
Every book project is unique, so it’s difficult to give an exact time estimate. However, I can provide guidelines based on your commitment level. If you’re looking to develop the skillset of writing a book, engage in the community, and make some progress on your draft, I suggest two to four hours per week of focused time. If you’d like to make solid progress and go deep with the community and coaching, set aside four to six hours per week. And if you want to finish your first draft—or at least get close—within the 12 weeks, I suggest setting aside 10 or more hours per week.
What is the schedule of classes?
Recorded trainings will be available on Fridays; live workshops and group coaching sessions will take place on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. EDT. You’ll have a full list of dates within the program platform once you enroll.
Can’t attend a live session because you’re traveling or in a meeting? Don’t worry—you’ll have lifetime access to the trainings and other resources (to use for your next book!).
How do you deliver the live trainings and QAs?
We’ll meet by Zoom for the live workshops and deep-dive coaching sessions.
What do students say is the biggest benefit of the program?
Students are largely surprised and delighted by how transformative the book-writing process is for them. For many aspiring authors, “writing a book” is this big, complex thing—but in Nonfiction Book School, it’s broken down into a clear, step-by-step system to encourage deep introspection that leads to clarity of purpose and vision. Powerful, right?
Two other big benefits students report: transformed schedules and community. I teach a time-blocking process to create time to write, which many students utilize well after the program ends—it becomes a lifestyle! NBS alumni have also become good friends, cheering each other on as they launch books and step into their purpose. The NBS community is welcoming and inspiring!
What is your methodology behind this accelerated author program?
I built Nonfiction Book School on a simple premise: structure begets creativity. My signature system has been honed for more than a decade, both in writing my own books and guiding students to write theirs, and I’ve seen the power of a clear, step-by-step framework to enable aspiring authors to write great books they’re proud to share with the world.
Importantly, NBS is not built to help you write a book lightning fast. I don’t believe books should be written in a weekend or without close attention to quality. Your ideas and stories deserve more of your energy and time to write a great book, not just a done book. Every step of my process is designed to help you dig deep, be highly productive, and write the book you’ve dreamed of.
I’m writing a novel. Is this program for me?
This accelerated author program is specifically geared toward nonfiction books. That said, I used a similar process to plan and cowrite Growing Influence, a business fable I coauthored with Ron Price. You will likely still get a lot out of this program, but I want to be clear that I will not be teaching you how to write a novel; the program curriculum is tailored toward big-idea, how-to, and information-focused nonfiction books. If you enroll, be sure to let me know you’re working on a novel so I can share additional resources.
How is this different than every other “write your book” course out there?
Nowhere on this site will you find the phrase “Write your book in a weekend!” or “Write a book in just 14 days!” This accelerated author program treats writing a book as more than a box to be checked off as quickly as possible. Books should be more than just a calling card for your business, and great books aren’t generally written in days. My perspective is that you should write the best book you possibly can, one that will have a profound impact on readers and your brand. This program will teach you how to write a great book—one that can stand the test of time, one that you’re proud to share with the world. That takes months, not days. You can do it! I will give you the guidance to get there.
