BOOK-COACHING SERVICES

$250 usd/month

If you're just getting started or are in the middle of writing your book, you've come to the right place.

WHAT ARE MY BOOK-COACHING SERVICES?

This service is for writers who don't have a finished manuscript yet and who need help with any of these things: 

  • Getting ideas

  • Turning an idea into an outline

  • Creating an overall structure for your book

  • Fleshing out characters

  • Worldbuilding

  • Overcoming writer’s block

  • Figuring out why something "just isn't working" (even if you don't know exactly what that something is)

  • Forming a convincing argument

  • Plotting out a storyline

  • Fixing slow or boring sections

  • Planning your next book

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Of course, each writer and each manuscript is different. But in general, here's how it works:

  • You and I have regular one-hour calls (up to four times per month) to discuss whatever is on your mind about your manuscript. Here are some possible topics:

    • Narrowing down your target audience and tailoring your writing to them

    • Structuring your plot (for fiction) or argument (for nonfiction)

    • Building your characters’ arcs and development

    • Developing the fictional world of your story and fleshing out details such as government, social structure, geography, climate, supernatural elements (e.g., magic), and so on.

  • You can email me anytime with smaller questions. If a question is too big to answer in an email, we'll schedule a call instead.

SEND ME A SAMPLE!

If you'd like an exact price for this service, send me a sample of up to 1,000 words from somewhere in the middle of your manuscript. This gives me the best idea of what the manuscript needs so I can provide you with an accurate quote.

Disclaimer: Anything you submit here remains your intellectual property. I will perform a sample edit on that text and use it to provide you with a price quote for editing the entire manuscript from which the sample came. Your price may vary based on factors such as word count, the type of editing to be done, and the results of the sample edit.

What type(s) of editing do you need? Check all that apply.
