Book Coaching Packages

The Blueprint Program

This six-week program is a great way to nail down the fundamentals of your writing project, whether it’s fiction, memoir, or nonfiction.

The program includes an onboarding call and three deadlines, normally spaced 2 weeks apart, where you complete exercises and then get on half-hour coaching calls with me to go over your answers and discuss your work.

Nonfiction Book Proposal

This program will help you craft a proposal for your nonfiction book, including helping you hammer out the structure, identify your market, and develop a submission strategy.

Full Manuscript Review

If you’ve completed your manuscript and you want a top-line look at what’s working and what’s not, including plot, pacing, characterization, and more, you might like to start with a full manuscript review.

It normally takes me a couple of weeks to do this, but if you’re on a tight deadline I can work with you.

I will also identify areas I might be able to help with, and offer a discount on any subsequent coaching services.

Manuscript Line Edit

Looking for traditional line editing? I’m an experienced editor who can give you both topline and detailed feedback on your completed manuscript.

Query Letter Coaching

If you’re ready to start submitting to agents and editors, you need to develop a first-rate query letter to even get your toe into the door. With my background in advertising, marketing, and the publishing world, I can help you write the most effective query for your pitch-ready manuscript.

This process includes a review of the first 3 chapters of your novel or memoir and 3 rounds of critiquing on your query letter with three coaching calls.

PLEASE NOTE: This program is contingent on my evaluation of your first three chapters.

Fiction or Memoir Manuscript Coaching

This establishes an ongoing coaching relationship of a minimum of 6 months, with 2 deadlines per month—each including a half-hour coaching call. Depending on where you are in the process, it starts with the Blueprint Program exercises and then continues as you write forward—with me in your corner and coaching you the whole way.

If you’re embarking on a big revise or rewrite, I’d start by reviewing your entire manuscript and then design the program around the work that needs to be done.
