Quick Look

Hiring a developmental editor  can be a daunting process. A 10 page review allows you to see a sample of my editorial style and allows me to assess the level of editing your project requires. 

The 10 page review includes annotated comments on the opening pages of your manuscript as well as a summary report with recommendations for how to proceed with your project.

Cost – $25

Book Coaching

Do you have the first few chapters of a novel, but are unsure how to finish it? Are you feel stuck in the middle of your novel? 

Ongoing coaching sessions help an author stay on track during the drafting process. Together, we will develop a plan to move your manuscript forward.

Each coaching session includes 45 minutes of feedback on the assigned pages, support regarding the creative process, and guidance on specific areas for improvement.

Initial 2 coaching sessions – $200

Additional coaching sessions sold in blocks of four

Manuscript Critique

A manuscript critique focuses on your novel as a whole. The author will receive an overall analysis of the novel with suggestions for how to develop and improve the manuscript. The critique will address:

  • opening chapters
  • characterization
  • point of view
  • plot holes
  • structure
  • dialogue
  • description
  • pacing
  • voice and style
