The Architecture

of Your Book

Create the framework for your book

that will give you the freedom to write it.


A live 3-week workshop with Debra Evans and Kristine Carlson

December 1 - 22, 2021

Four Wednesdays from 11 am - 12:30 pm PST

Learn our 10-part blueprint for building your bestseller, 

and watch your experience, expertise, creativity,

and wisdom take form on the page.

Your book has likely been incubating within you for quite some time. The structure for your book that you create (or refine) during this workshop can result in getting it written and published faster — and with greater ease — than previously imagined.

What's been standing in your way up until now?

When it comes to the book you want to write, have you overheard yourself saying something like this?  

"I know I'm supposed to write a book, but I have no idea where to begin."
"I want to share my story, but I'm not sure how to do it."
"I get lots of 'downloads' for my book, but then the pages just sit there - waiting for me to figure out how to put it all together. I feel stuck."

"I know my story can help a lot of people, but I don't know what kind of non-fiction book it should be."

"I know my subject matter inside and out, but I'm overwhelmed every time I try to begin this book!"

"I'm a speaker and teacher with great content, but I don't know how to put it into book form. It seems like it should be easier than it appears to be in my own head."
"I'm an academic, but I'd like to be a storyteller."

"I would like to turn my online course into a book, but I don't know how to create that expanded version." 

"I'm afraid that the book I want to write has already been written."

"Who am I to write a book?"

We love every one of these statements of concern because we know exactly how to help new authors move past them. As you work with us to craft the blueprint for the book you want to write, any overwhelm, confusion, or self-doubt you may be feeling will melt away.

A message from Kristine and Debra

Hi friends!

This 3-week workshop was born out of our wildly successful Book Incubator and Momentum programs (our 10-week and 6-week programs). Creating the structure or framework for a book is not only a core aspect of both of those courses, it is one of the most popular parts of our curriculum. Period. 


The relief and excitement our participants feel once they implement our book "architecturing" process is incredibly rewarding for us.

Confusion clears. Procrastination ends. Motivation and inspiration surge. And books get written . . . and published . . . and read. 


This is why we do what we do.


We know the genuine freedom, fun, and pleasure to be found in the writing process once the structure is in place. And we would love to spend these very special three weeks (beginning during Hanukkah and leading up to Christmas) helping you to create a framework and map for your book that can truly make your writing journey a beautiful and highly successful one. 


Your Book Doulas,
Kris and Debra

Post-Workshop Option: Private Book Architecture Assessment Sessions  

Once you've completed the 3-week workshop, if you would like to have Kristine and Debra personally review and assess every aspect of your book structure and outline, you can schedule this service with us.  After they have gone over your material and met with each other to discuss the details, Kris and Debra will gather with you via Zoom in a one-hour mentoring session to further refine your framework together.

If this feels like an important next step for you, you can schedule this assessment process to take place after the Christmas/New Year's holiday, and ideally in January or February in order to keep pace with the momentum you've created.

Success Stories

Amy on the Book Incubator:


“I’ve gone from an idea of what I wanted to actually having a book written and on its way to being published. That wouldn’t have been possible if I didn’t have Kris and Deb. I highly recommend this program. If you have a book in you and you’re dying to get it out, this is something you need to invest in.”

Amy Eliza Wong, 

communications expert, transformational coach, and author of Living on Purpose: Five Deliberate Choices to Realize Fulfillment and Joy.


Michele on the Book Incubator:


“Working with Kris and Debra provided me with a structure by which I could begin to shape the ideas I had into actual chapters. [It’s] how I came to be standing on the precipice of having my book in the world. I could not more highly recommend the Book Doulas’ programs for anyone who has a dream of writing a book but doesn’t quite know how to get there..”

— Michele Neff Hernandez,

author of Different After You: Rediscovering Yourself and Healing after Grief and Trauma

Lynn on the Book Incubator:


“I just wanted to send you both a huge thank you for creating such an amazing program. I have been able to land on a book title, solidify my book outline, and learn so much about social media. You’ve helped clarify my message and my branding. Structur[ing] my book allowed me to, a couple of days ago, finish editing my first chapter. Thank you so much. Love to both of you.”

Desireé on the Book Incubator: 


“I have gained so much more confidence in myself and my voice. I have gained greater insight into my purpose. And most importantly, I have more comfort in expressing myself through social media. Making [an author] platform has been one of my greatest fears and now it feels almost like a no-brainer.”

— Desireé Childs,

body and mind wellness facilitator

“Debra has been my editor for two books, with a third coming up. She is a deeply skillful editor and writer whom I trust to help me articulate sometimes complex ideas into highly accessible pages. I have known Kris for several years. She stands out vividly in the transformational field as a teacher and writer of unparalleled experience, wisdom, and grace. Kris and Debra working together is an opportunity not to be missed.”

— Barnet Bain, 

award-winning filmmaker and author of The Book of Doing and Being

“Having worked with both Debra and Kristine, I believe they are your best choice for bringing your book into the world. They are masterful in the multitude of ways you would want them to be - from writing and editing to navigating the terrain of literary agents, book publicists, publishers, and more. Do not miss the chance to have them at your side.”
