Azul was quick to address the mental roadblocks that I was facing, and he gave me specific deadlines which was really helpful.

Azul isn’t just a writing coach – he’s a teacher and he makes me feel like I have someone in my corner, to help me finish my book”.

Dana Malstaff


Before I met Azul, I was a Business and Content Strategist who was trying to grow a business and be a parent at the same time. I had direction, but no true driving force. Azul helped me unlock my purpose. I always knew I wanted to write a book, and when I sat down with Azul he helped me figure out what I was meant to write, what I was meant to put out into the world. His mix of support, drive, and experience has helped me not only stay motivated and actually write, but also to create more community in my life. My journey with Azul has been so meaningful, he has helped me so much not only to write, but to find my path, and I am so grateful have found him. He has helped me create something that truly represents a part of me and helped me share it with the world.

For years I thought about writing a book, but did nothing more than just think about it. In six months, Azul helped me perfect the story I wanted to tell, write the manuscript, and publish the entire book. My book launched at #1 in three Amazon categories, beating out a NYT-bestseller, and I couldn’t have done it without Azul!

“When my manuscript was near completion, I made the wise decision to employ the services and request the guidance of Azul Terronez. My only regret is that I didn’t seek his insightful, wonderful advice sooner! Every time I consulted with Azul, I was reminded of his natural sense of wisdom, reflective, inquiry-based thinking, and balanced perspective. Beyond professional editing, story craft, and marketing advice, Azul listened acutely, read deeply into meaning, and asked me all the right questions to get the most out of the author in me. He clearly sees the importance of the big picture as well as the crucial details in writing. To me, Azul is a true feedback guru, a master of craft—more than a writing coach– a sage and counselor.”
