Free Discovery Call

Free 30-minute discovery call, where you describe your book, your struggles and successes, and why you’re seeking help. After the call I will recommend an appropriate coaching or meeting package.

Novel Review

The biggest problem with first drafts? Fundamental story design problems. Knock those problems out with a Novel Review. Submit your manuscript and get a 2-3 pages report and a 60-minute Zoom call with me. We’ll address major plot turning points, character want, need, flaw and ghost, rising escalation and satisfying ending. Or at least as much as we can in this limited time.

Development Edit

The big picture. A deep look at your book’s structure, pacing, character development, motivation, imagery, all the story design issues. I read your entire book and provide in-page notes and a detailed editorial letter.

One-on-One Coaching

Working from the Blueprint for a Book, we work together to nail your idea, characters, theme, hook, dramatic question before you start writing. I coach you to write forward and to revise. And we deal with your inner censor and other blocks that get in your way. A six-month commitment.
