Like building a house, crafting a good book means first building a good, solid foundation. I can help you build a foundation for your novel that will make writing your first or next draft productive and satisfying.

I know you want to get busy writing, and I want that for you, too. But trust me, the more pre-writing work you put into your book, the happier you are going to be with the results, and the easier the rewriting and revision process is going to be. When you work with me on planning your first draft or revision of your book, you will come away with a roadmap that will keep you focused as you move forward.

Planning Your Book

Coaching through the planning process involves a three-month commitment to us working together one-on-one to create and review a book plan you will turn in to me over the course of three monthly deadlines. The plan will be completed in a workbook I will provide to you. I will provide inline comments regarding the strengths and weaknesses of your story plan after each deadline. We will have an intake call before you begin the process and a half-hour coaching call after each deadline.


A Monthly Coaching Package with one deadline, one set of feedback, and one coaching call per month is $300.00 per month with a three-month commitment.

A Monthly Coaching Package with two deadlines, two sets of feedback, and two half-hour coaching calls per month is $450 per month with a three-month commitment.

Additional Services:

I also offer Monthly Coaching through writing and rewriting your novel, as well as Manuscript Evaluations.

Additional services offered on a limited basis to my book coaching clients include development of a pitch package for querying agents and developmental, line, and copy editing.
