Book Breakthrough

This week-long access to coaching is a highly effective way to gain insights that can help you problem-solve and get back into drafting or revising quickly. It is especially effective for writers who like to talk through their ideas out loud. Using the video messaging app Marco Polo, we will communicate throughout the week about your book or idea. The purpose of this service is to help you get unstuck in your process and move forward with greater confidence. This format works great across multiple time zones and various busy lifestyles. It's the perfect pocket-sized writing coaching to get you moving forward again.

Developmental Editing

If you’ve got a draft down on the page but aren’t sure what it needs in revision, a developmental edit will give you the insights and tools to successfully revise your manuscript. This service includes a full read-through of your current draft and a detailed report on what is working well and what needs adjusting. The report will include feedback on all major story elements like plot, character development, setting, and world-building. This edit will also receive comments and edits directly on the manuscript itself, giving you concrete guidance for a revision. This edit also includes a video meeting to review the report and answer any questions you may have.

Submission Support

If you hope to work with a traditional publisher, you will first need to submit your work to agents for consideration. There are several professional documents and elements you will need to prepare: a query letter (including bio, comparative titles, pitch, target audience, etc.), and a synopsis. This service includes support in creating and editing a query letter and synopsis. It also includes a list of 10 agents that I’ve handpicked that I believe are a good fit for your manuscript. We will meet up to 3 times on video to review the edits and help you feel confident sending your materials to agents.

$700
