Historical Novel Revision Package


This package is designed for writers with a complete manuscript that still needs work. I’ll review the manuscript and make recommendations, then we’ll have eight coaching deadlines to hammer everything out.



You’ve got a finished manuscript—yay! But you know it still needs work. Either you’ve had beta reader feedback that points out specific problems, or you’ve been querying and gotten nowhere, or you know in your gut that typing “the end” on the manuscript doesn’t mean it’s polished and ready to go. This is a great time to get some coaching to help focus you on the big-picture revisions, as well as identify any plot holes or inconsistencies.

My revision package consists of two parts:

  1. Manuscript review (2-3 weeks, depending on the length of the manuscript): I’ll read the entire manuscript and prepare an editorial letter that describes the strengths and weaknesses I’ve found in your work, with suggestions of how to tackle the revisions—what’s most important.
  2. Revision coaching: We work together through six deadlines (12-18 weeks) to start with (additional deadlines can be added a la carte if necessary) to get your manuscript revised or rewritten, depending on the recommendations from the manuscript review.

Package price is for manuscripts up to 75,000 words. Longer manuscripts will be quoted on request.
