Is your writing stuck in low-drive? Do you feel panicked at the thought of sharing what you’ve written? Are you concerned about preserving your own style and unique voice? Do you worry that an editor will insist on changes that alter the meaning and intent of your writing?
As an author, editor, publisher and writing coach I have steered dozens of authors and books through the writing and publishing process. With first-hand experience on both sides of the book business, I know what writers need to bring their projects to fruition. I would love to share that knowledge with you.
I will work one-on-one with you, providing clear, honest, developmental feedback without pushing your work in directions you don’t want. If you are a first-time author, I can also guide you through the often murky waters of the writing process and beyond, into traditional or self-publishing.
Writing: I think of myself as a midwife helping authors bring their books into the world. The baby is all yours—I’m just here to ensure its safe arrival.
Publishing: The world of publishing is topsy-turvy these days. Whether seeking a trade publisher or considering self-publishing, you can save money by learning which services to budget for, how much they should cost and what wastes time and money.
Many clients tell me they feel a special connection with me and I am convinced that a special connection is critically important to success. Let’s check out the energy between us before you make a decision to spend any money.
I will provide a no-cost, no-obligation 10-minute consultation by phone or Skype. If we click, great! I thrive on working with people who know that I GET them! If you are one of them, let me help you get your manuscript out into the world.
