Author Coaching

Author coaching is the ideal service for two types of writers. The first type of writer wants consistent help throughout the first draft process with a focus on outlining, character development, plotting and story arc. The second type of writer wants help only when they get stuck somewhere and needs someone to bounce ideas off of and find some new inspiration to keep pushing forward.

Each coaching session involves an hour of the editor’s time to critique the writer’s work in preparation for the call. Coaching calls are 50 minutes long and must be scheduled in advance.

Price: $300 for 3 sessions

*Note: Author coaching does not take the place of a full edit. It is highly recommended that any manuscript that has been through author coaching also go through a full professional edit.


Manuscript Critique

If you are looking for professional feedback on your completed manuscript, this is the product for you. I’ll do an in-depth review of your manuscript, provide feedback on character development, plot, pacing, story arc, and more, as needed. This feedback can then be used to further revise your manuscript.

Price: $400

*Note: The Manuscript Critique does not take the place of a full edit. A full edit is highly recommended after the completion of this service.
