One-on-one coaching through the revision process—professional tools, feedback, and guidance to help you take your manuscript to the next level.
You’ve finished your first (or twelfth) draft of your book, and you don’t know where to go from here. That’s where book coaching comes in. A professional book coach can evaluate where you are at, help you map out where you are going, and provide you with written feedback and encouragement as you rewrite and revise your book.
As we move through the writing process together, I will teach 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.
Rewriting and Revising Your Book
Monthly Coaching through the Manuscript Makeover revision process involves a minimum three-month commitment to us working together one-on-one on the revision process. We will first work through laying the foundation for the writing or revision, which generally takes two to three deadlines, sometimes a little more.
Once we’ve laid the foundation, we will work on pages you will submit to me over the course of several monthly deadlines. You will turn in 25 pages per deadline, I will provide inline feedback regarding the strengths and weaknesses of your pages, and we will have three hour-long coaching calls, one after each deadline, to discuss your pages and my comments. 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. If you are interested in making a 6-12 month commitment, please contact me for a discounted price.
Once-A-Month Coaching: A Monthly Coaching Package with one deadline, one set of feedback, and one coaching call per month is $400.00 per month with a three-month commitment. Additional months are available at $400 per month, and a discount is available for a 6-12 month commitment.
Twice-a-Month Coaching: A Monthly Coaching Package with two deadlines, two sets of feedback, and two half-hour coaching calls per month is $600 per month with a three-month commitment. This is a 50% savings off of once-a-month coaching and 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 $600 per month (you may also switch over to the once-a-month plan), and a discount is available for a 6-12 month commitment.
