I offer free introductory calls so that we can discuss your project and whether I’m the best coach for you. This is not a coaching call; rather, it’s a chance to talk about your project and what kind of help you might need.

Please note that I do not coach or edit science fiction or romance novels.

One Chapter Evaluation
  • This is generally a two week project where you receive written feedback plus a coaching call and follow up emails.

$378

Novel Planning
  • This is a six week commitment with a variety of exercises and tools to help you plan your novel. This is suitable for someone with an idea and very little writing; it’s also helpful for people who have a draft or partial draft that they know isn’t working.
  • You will also write and refine a chapter, most often your first chapter.
  • You have unlimited emails for the duration of the six weeks, you receive written feedback on all the exercises and the chapter, and at the end, there’s a coaching call to help you define the areas that most need your attention.

Six Month Individual Coaching as You Draft Your Novel
  • You complete portions of a draft every week, most often using exercises, plans, and outlines that you have already completed.
  • You receive feedback on up to twenty pages per week.
  • The focus is on developing a coherent draft of the entire project.
  • We work on content, not line-editing or proofreading.
  • We talk every other week to keep you motivated and discuss your draft.
  • You can email throughout the six months with questions and concerns.

$7560

Developmental Editing of Your Manuscript
  • This is content editing where I edit and coach your completed manuscript.
  • The focus will not be line editing or proofreading. We’re primarily concerned with the bigger picture. How well does the manuscript hold together? Where are there holes in the story? How do you address different components of the novel (such as plot, theme, dialogue, etc.)?
  • You will receive the most detailed feedback on the crucial first three chapters.
  • You also receive an editorial letter of 8-10 pages that offers an analysis of what you did, offering perspectives on things you need to address further.
  • There is also a coaching call at the end where we discuss your options and the areas most in need of attention. We also talk about the things that are working particularly well!
  • This is generally a five week commitment.
