Check out Live Your Dream Workshops for a series of books and downloadable modules on writing and getting published. If you’re interested in one-on-one coaching on any of the subjects below, please use my contact form. I look forward to working with you!

Story Editing

Having trouble realizing the potential of your story? Struggling with your opening/climax/conclusion? I have extensive experience with picture books, young adult novels, screenplays and full-length novels. Let me help you:

  • Refine your plot.
  • Identify, expand and emphasize your character’s conflicts.
  • Smooth out your pacing.

Fees are based on a combination of word count and time spent.

Manuscript Evaluation

Finished your story but not quite sure if its ready for submission? I can help with:

  • Formatting
  • Polishing
  • Target market analysis

Fees are based on a combination of word count and time spent.

Query Letter Evaluation

No matter how good your manuscript may be, it won’t get published if editors never get past your query. I can help you:

  • Identify and avoid common mistakes.
  • Emphasize both your strengths and those of your manuscript.

I generally charge a flat fee per letter for query evaluations.

Synopsis Evaluation

So an editor has requested a synopsis. That’s great! I can help make sure your synopsis tells the real story of your story.

Fees are based on a combination of word count and time spent.
