The Beginning Writer

Let me help you:

  • brainstorm or troubleshoot a novel
  • prep for a conference
  • manage your writing time
  • develop a reading list

This package is customized to suit your personal and professional writing goals. Together we can get you started as a fiction author!

Approximate Time Needed: 5-10 hours

The Almost-There Author

Are you looking for:

  • a big picture overview of your book to identify weaknesses such as: character motivations, story arc, mirror moment, show vs. tell, etc.
  • how to write a proposal
  • prepping conference pitches (emphasis on which editors/agents are looking for your work)
  • optimizing your writing time

This package is designed for the author who is almost ready to pitch a proposal but wants to make sure the project is well developed, marketable, and ready for presentation to an editor or agent.

The Professional

Perhaps you’re already published, but you’d like:

  • to switch genres
  • move from fiction to non-fiction or vice versa
  • prepare class pitches for conference teaching opportunities
  • self-publish after being traditional
  • move from self-published to traditional

I can help you navigate this new journey with encouragement, brainstorming, and reviews of your work. I can also help direct you to publishing professionals who will meet your advanced needs.
