Working one-on-one is a great way to support your writing goals! We can meet in person or online. See service descriptions below, then sign up for a free 30-minute no-obligation consultation to get started.
Sometimes the first step is the hardest. Ideas bounce around in your head but when you sit down to write, nothing comes. I've been there and can help you leap from dreaming about writing a book, to writing a book. I'll show you how to get started by fleshing out your story idea and honing in on character, motivation, and plot. Bring your questions, concerns, and fears, then get ready to write!
Fee: $50 for 1 hour, including a quick follow-up session, if needed.
Got writer's block?
This service is for writers who have written anything from a few pages to a few chapters and are struggling to continue, either because of a lack of new story ideas or motivation. After reading your work-in-progress, we'll meet to discuss areas of strength and those areas that need adjusting. You will get a better understanding of what's working, what's not, and how to move forward.
1 stand-alone session: $80
includes feedback on up to 25 pages
4 sessions, paid in advance: $300
I've finished the first (or second) draft, now what?
With content editing, I will read your completed manuscript and give you detailed feedback. You'll get insights into character development, pacing, setting, flow, and more. Having this information is vital before beginning the next round of revisions.
