The Book You Were Meant To Write with Kelly Notaras

kn literary arts is the creation of 15-year publishing veteran Kelly Notaras.  After starting her career in New York City—working as an editor for HarperCollins, Penguin USA and Hyperion Books—she relocated several years ago to Boulder, Colorado where she served for four years as the VP and Editorial Director at Sounds True, a multi-media spirituality publishing company. There she oversaw an impressive list of spiritual luminaries including Adyashanti, Reggie Ray, Krishna Das, Sharon Salzberg, Pema Chodron, Caroline Myss, and many more.


In 2010 she left Sounds True to ghostwrite her first book, but her love of editing was never far away. Since starting kn literary arts, she has been honored to edit a wide variety of personal growth books including the forthcoming Intimate Conversations with the Divine by Caroline Myss and New York Times Bestsellers The Tapping Solution by Nick Ortner and Pussy: A Reclamation by Regena “Mama Gena” Thomashauer. kn literary’s amazing client list also includes Nancy Levin, Michael Morelli, Agapi Stassinopoulos, Miranda Macpherson, Bruce Tift, Drew Canole, Danette May and many more. 


Kelly is the author of The Book You Were Born to Write: Everything You Need to (Finally) Get Your Wisdom Onto the Page and Into the World, published by Hay House. She lives in Colorado. Visit her at


Kelly shared so much wisdom about how and why you must write the book that is in your heart. 

  1. If you’re struggling with the question “Whom am I to write a book?” (like many of us authors), look at it from a different angle. Focus on being of service and the ‘how to’ that will help others. Life wants you to share your experience, not hold on to it!

2.The reader is everything! You’ll want to pick a specific person whom you’re writing to that could use your wisdom. You don’t have to go much farther along the path…all you need are a few steps ahead to be able to shine the light and help your reader.

  1. Get out of your ego, and into your intuition. If you’re an author and not a writer, Kelly’s company is filled with amazing writers who can help you.
  2. A great way to write your book is take a course you’re already teaching and break it up into chapters and sections. Mama Gena did this with her bestselling book, Pussy: A Reclamation.
