Novels, Non-fiction, Copywriting, Copyediting, Ghostwriting

Whether you're a brand new author or you've written a dozen books, at some point you're going to need an editor. I can help you plan, structure, and develop your novel or non-fiction project.

If you need a copywriter or copy editor, I provide those services as well.

Every project is different, so I offer an array of payment plans. Check out my prices and options, and if you're interested, fill out the contact form below and we can set up a time to talk.

"I went into the project with an idea I thought I would write about, but [your coaching] generated so many new and novel ideas that I changed my mind."—Danny C.

I provide a FREE initial 30-minute phone consultation.

I usually suggest that new clients (especially those already working on a project) send me the first 250 words of their manuscript. I will provide a FREE critique about what works, what doesn't, along with suggestions for improvement. If you like the work, you can hire me either as an Editor or a Writing Coach.

Clients can also send me a full manuscript for a similar review. The charge for this service starts at $1,000, payable in two installations: 50% up front; 50% upon completion of the work. This also includes a single 60-minute phone consultation. Fees are non-refundable.

Writing Coach

Coaching a client through a project can consist of many things. Some clients require in-depth reading, analysis, and suggestions for their work, some need help getting started or pushing through a difficult part of the work (the mid-novel draft dip!), and some need to be help with the technical and other requirements of publishing their work.

You can choose among the five writing coach packages below. 50% of the monthly fee is due in advance, and 50% is due in the middle of the month. Fees are non-refundable. Monthly clients prefer the convenience of credit card billing, in which you authorize automatic billing each month (no checks to write and no reminders).

With any of these packages, additional reading, critique and email exchanges extending past the agreed-upon time limits are available upon request.

24-hour notice is required for cancelled coaching sessions. Missed sessions must be made up during that same calendar month or be forfeited.

Editor

Editing is not included in writing coach services. Editing is limited to copy and line editing and perhaps minor rewrites. Teaching/Coaching is not included in the service.
