Don't leave your story untold...

  • Do you feel a burning desire to share your story but find yourself overwhelmed by where to start?
  • Are you bogged down by self-doubt, fear of vulnerability, or the daunting complexity of the publishing world?

You're not alone. Many aspiring authors grapple with the process of turning their life stories and book ideas into polished, published works. Confusion, insecurity, and a lack of guidance only widen the gap between your aspirations to write your book and making it happen.

The fact that you are here with this dream means you have a story to tell that others need to hear.

Dream with me...

Imagine how you'll feel holding your book and the quiet crinkle sound the cover makes when you open it up for the first time.

How does the cover feel in your hands? What feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment do you have, knowing your story is out there, people are reading it, and it's changing lives?

Dream about the impact it will make, providing inspiration, healing, and feelings of connection to the readers who need your message.

The book is in YOU! I will help you find it.

See what past students have to say...

“I’ve had a ‘book concept’ in my head for a couple of years, and this class got me to finally create a blueprint of what it will take to make my book a reality. I loved how each of the classes focused on thinking of writing from various viewpoints (think like a shrink, a writer, an author, a publisher, a publicist). The homework was super helpful to get really focused on a direction with my book, and Paolina’s feedback alone was worth twice what I paid for the class. She is truly a wealth of knowledge in how to write, publish, and market books!”

– Tiffany P.

“Paolina is engaging, genuine and professional. Her expertise and passion in communications and story-telling is clear, concise and engaging! She truly defines the importance of effective story-telling!”

– Aaron Tam

CPA, Founder and Host of the First Generations Podcast

“I can't believe how much I accomplished in just 6 weeks. There was momentum! I wish I could have stopped everything else and just worked on my book. I have a plan now! Before, I just had a loose idea. I now have something concrete to work from that will help me move forward. Paolina spoke from a place of experience, someone who has seen the ins and outs of the writing/publishing world. I felt reassured in this ‘process’ with her guidance. AND she made the class fun!”

– Lynn H.

"I got more useful information in 6 weeks than what I thought possible. The great feedback, how to actually start writing my book, and having guidelines for accomplishing it: Everything was so helpful." –

– Susan S.

“She’s open, honest, non-judgmental, and talked to me in a way that made sense to me. Paolina took me through the entire process, helping me to understand what was involved in going from the beginning to the publishing. And I became a published author!”

– Tonya M.

“I had never published a collection of my poetry strung together by a light narrative, creating a larger story to hold all the poems as one. Paolina’s direction and encouragement made it possible”

– Wendy LT

“Paolina is both a tiger and a kitten. She knows her business, she shares knowledge willingly, goes above and beyond with kindness and encouragement. I am always amazed at the genuineness of every interaction I have had with her. She helped me overcome my fears and take risks way beyond my comfort zone which empowers me to take more! She was fierce in sticking to task, managing deadlines, advocating for resources to get the job done, and even pushing me to do my best work. I always felt she had my best intentions in mind. Her vision and belief in me took me farther than I ever felt possible.”

– Anne F.

“Having written my story without having beaten myself down nor having second guessed myself. This is a 180 from how I live life (fear of not having done the right thing/made the right decision and having to ask people for their feedback on a somewhat routine basis just because I’m afraid of taking the right road). Paolina is Awesome with a capital a!! Her support and no judgment approach was very helpful. It made me feel good that someone - with her as my teacher and who deals with writers on more involved levels - could find “magic” in my work. That word/feedback played a good role in reinforcing my thought that writing may be a dormant talent.”

– Parrisa K.

“I ripped the band-aid and wrote about something painful to me when I wasn't ready to. Paolina pushed me with a stern hand and a gentle heart. I learned about giving ourselves permission to tell our stories, letting go of fear, self-doubts, etc., She somehow got me to do what it was I needed to do.”

– Mary B.

“Strict. Open. Bright. Loving. The perfect amount of eccentricity— and highly encouraging. Paolina Milana by far and away has been the greatest and most powerful take away — being able to trust another with my work— and learning how to work with someone new.”

– Allison S.

“I used this process to heal. Through it, I was able to give my struggle a voice. I never thought I would ever be able to noon up and show my vulnerability. It all came together beautifully. Paolina is an amazing and gifted coach. You don’t get to the end of a chapter or a book without trust in your coach or mentor.” –

– Makeba P.

Your Story Deserves to Be Shared, Too!

I'm more than just a writing coach. As an award-winning writer, (you might have read my memoir, "COMMITTED: A Memoir of Madness in the Family"), I know firsthand the transformative power of putting pen to paper – or fingers to keyboard!

That's why I created "What's the Book in YOU?" – to support aspiring authors like you.

I've been there. The self-doubt, the fear of the blank page, the overwhelming feeling of not knowing where to begin. But I also know the incredible joy and fulfillment that comes from crafting a story that matters.

That's why I don't just teach writing—I teach you how to become an author. I combine my storytelling expertise with my experience as a published author and coach to create a holistic program that equips you with the tools, confidence, and clarity you need to write a compelling book and share your story with the world with pride.

Are you ready to write the book that's been waiting to be told?
