Frequently Asked Questions

Are the LIVE Q&A coaching times recorded?

YES! You have access to them through the Facebook group and can go back to watch them at a time that’s convenient for you.

When are the LIVE Q&A coaching dates with Rachel?

At this time, they are twice per month (approx every 2 weeks) for 30-60 minutes. They are typically the second Tuesday of the month at 9 am PST/12 pm EST and fourth Thursday at 1 pm PST/4 pm EST, however all Q&A times are posted 3 months in advance and may be subject to change. It is not required to attend these sessions LIVE as they will be recorded.

Can I downgrade or upgrade my membership?

Yes! Please send an email to with “MEMBERSHIP” in the subject box with your question and we will get back to you within 2-3 business days!

What if I need to cancel my membership?

That would be such a bummer but we totally understand and make the process super easy for you! Just send an email to with “CANCEL MEMBERSHIP” in the subject line and we will get back to you within 2-3 business days, with confirmation of cancelling your membership! Please note that if you have already been charged for this month’s membership (30-day period if you are on a monthly plan) then we will cancel for the following month (and thereafter). There are no partial reimbursements for the month paid. If you are on the annual plan, unfortunately there are no refunds. However, we will cancel your annual membership from being renewed for the following year. 🙂

Is this a faith-based writing membership?

Yes! Biblical and spiritual applications are taught in this program to help you progress as a writer, not just with tools and training, but encourage spiritual growth (Truth) to help you grow.

I’m not exactly what you call a Christian...can I still join?

Absolutely! Just know that there are many teachings and trainings where I reference back to God, Jesus, and the Bible often.

Do you provide a self-paced course for help with book proposals instead of joining this membership program?

Yes! Check out my Write it Right: Book Proposals and Query Letters self-paced online course:

About your instructor!

Hey Inspired Author!

I’m Rachel C. Swanson, a best-selling + award-winning author, national speaker, podcaster, and accredited coach where I help writers reach their book publishing dreams! I’m also a mom to “Wannabe Triplets” and married to my biggest fan, Jeff. We recently relocated from the bustling sprawl of Southern California to the rural hills of Southern Idaho to live out dreams.

Speaking of dreams, it wasn’t too long ago that I was in your shoes, wondering if this writing dream would ever happen and how to go about doing it. That’s why I started coaching–to help take out the fluff and distractions, while leaving the fundamentals in place to help you reach your goals. I can’t wait to work with you! 

Your Coach, Rachel
