Writing is never easy, but with the help and support of a professional book coach, you can reach your writing goals and produce your best work ever.
Writing in isolation and without a plan can leave a writer discouraged, full of doubt, and unsure of how to move forward. I can help you move through the writing process. Together, we can work toward writing a solid first draft of your book. I will show you how to elevate your writing so that it’s better than it was before and help you avoid common writing mistakes that can turn off agents and publishers. Along the way, I’ll provide the professional written feedback and the encouragement you need as you write forward.
Writing Your Book
Monthly Coaching through the Knock Out Your Novel writing process involves a minimum six-month commitment to us working together one-on-one through the writing process. Note: This package is for writers who’ve either worked with me through planning their books or who’ve taken my Build-A-Book Workshop and who already have a solid plan and outline.
We will work together on pages you will submit to me over the course of several monthly or semi-monthly deadlines. You will turn in up to 25 pages per deadline, I will provide inline feedback regarding the strengths and weaknesses of your pages, and we will have a 30-minute coaching call after each deadline, to discuss your pages and my feedback. Alternatively, you may choose twice-a-month coaching. Additional months are available if needed or desired.
PLEASE NOTE: Coaching through a full write or rewrite of a novel generally takes 12 or more deadlines.
Once-A-Month Coaching: A Monthly Coaching Package with one deadline, one set of feedback, and one coaching call per month is $625.00 per month with a minimum six-month commitment. Additional months are available at $625 per month. A writer may switch to twice-a-month coaching at any time.
Twice-a-Month Coaching: A Monthly Coaching Package with two deadlines, two sets of feedback, and two half-hour coaching calls per month is $1,250 per month with a six-month commitment. This will allow the writer to achieve their goals more quickly, but this requires a bigger time commitment on the writer’s part to avoid rushing the process. Additional months are available at $1,250 per month. A writer may switch to once-a-month coaching at any time.
