Here are a number of interesting facts you need to know about Kaye Bewley as an author, publisher, mentor and business coach:
She has been a certified psychotherapist for over ten years.
For over a decade she worked with thousands of men - some broken, some pissed-off, some drunk, and some that knew their shit and made sure everyone knew about it - and she's 'therapised' them all
She's presented relationship workshops to loads of mentally and emotionally broken and bruised couples - and put them back together again
She's worked as a Personal Assistant and a Production Assistant, serving tea, coffee and her (admin) skills to blue chip companies and top media and publishing professionals around the world (BBC, Channel 4, ITN (Sir Trev was brill) and Macmillan)
Her name is engraved in sterling silver on the school shield - for being best pupil of 1978 (she's serious about this, she has photographic evidence somewhere)
She has cycled across Sicily with a tent and a pack on her back - and vowed never to repeat the exercise ever again (not because of the Italians, the Italians were funny)
She has also ridden on the back of a motorbike up and down and all-around Wales - and vowed never to repeat that experience ever again too (not because of the Welsh, the Welsh were lovely)
She’s been told she does an effing fantastic ‘mind meld’ and is a beautiful coffin dodger (squaddie humour, gets you every time)
She knows how to help you get over your bugbears and work through your shit like no one else can
Her presentations are always suitable for a family audience (18+)
She has a knack for picking up authors who she knows she'll make a buck or two out of (sorry, for)
Her own books have sold all over the world - almost. She's yet to crack Kazakhstan and Yemen...
She is still striving to be an international bestseller…and is positive she will get there. One day.
She pursued a successful career in TV production, running around with clapper boards, sandwich trays and all-important recording tapes at ITN News and suited-up BBC journalists with flak-jackets for war zones - and then she wrote a book about it.
Later she started selling her screenplays and scripts to anyone who would act them out - and even created a lively, ultra- modern musical stage play based on a medieval character of the religious ilk.
As a mature lady, she earned her degree in Emotional Needs Psychology at Nottingham Trent University (the one that was formerly a Poly). Kaye also spent five years working at Ricoh copier company where she took a team of marketing and sales professionals by the scruff and spared no horses in an effort to revamp a spanking new showroom.
She now combines all this experience entertaining groups of folk who want to make the best of their lives by exposing their shit to make it all come up roses. Her areas of expertise are writing that novel, inspiring you to write yours, and pushing you to your limits in an effort to promote and sell it.
BEWLEYBOOKS - On the first and second Friday's in every month, books are opened up, read and examined.
I give you instruction, guidance and much needed info about the all-important and much neglected 'business' of writing. Everyone has a book in them, or so I'm told. My job is to figure that out for you and help to prize it out of you.
BEWLEYBOOKS+ - ad-hoc info, specifically tailored to authors and ultra-important booksellers.
BEWLEYTHERAPY - I picked the third Friday of every month to explore sickness and health and guide you to that middle- (or higher-, if you want to go there) ground, where most feel safer.
CAMPERVAN-K - Saturday's, are reserved for my personal, no-nonsense vlogs as I travel around the beautiful (and not so beautiful) countryside in my camper. It's ended up being mostly about cooking but, I'm no Nigella - or so I've been told.
1st & 2nd Friday of each month: BewleyBooks
3rd Friday of each month: BewleyTherapy
Every Saturday (near enough): CamperVan-K
All my best,
Kaye Bewley (oops, yes, I have an MA too)
Mentor and Publisher to Authors and Booksellers
Honesty and Fun
Combining creativity and logic (two-sides of that brilliant brain in your head) has been Kaye's approach throughout her colourful career and it’s how she engages with her clients and customers while offering insightful advice and proven tools and techniques to help them through the rough patches they've endured in life.
Over the years, she was often referred to as 'awesome' and 'fucking fantastic' by some squaddies, and she is someone who turned broken lives around with humour and grit - rather than spiralling them further down the toilet of despair.
Kaye is the motivational mentor for enticing you onto a path you never thought you could walk. Whether you need light-hearted encouragement or an inspirational kick up the back-side, Kaye will give you just what you need to get you out of the doldrums.
If you need to kick start a marketing campaign for your book or your book store, Kaye can deliver you the tools you need to achieve goals you once believed to be unattainable.
All of the content Kaye includes in her mentoring package is suitable for a broke and brow-beaten author or a multi-million pound bookselling business.
