Hi! I’m Leanne. I’m a writer, certified book coach, and editor. I have the experience, the knowledge, and the positive attitude you need to help you write your book. If we become partners, yes, I will provide you with professional feedback, answer your questions, and help you take your book to the next level. But I’m also a great accountability partner and cheerleader. I love working with new writers, and getting writers across the finish line is my superpower.
I offer remote Monthly Coaching through the processes of planning, writing or rewriting your book.
Jump Start Your Novel
Monthly Coaching through the planning process involves a minimum three-month commitment to us working together one-on-one to lay the foundation for writing your novel, from idea to solidifying all the crucial elements to creating a detailed roadmap for writing your book.
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.
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 over the one-deadline plan and will speed up the writer’s progress, but it also means the writer must be prepared to devote more time to the process so that it is not rushed.

This package is a great way to get a feel for what it’s like to work with me while also getting some valuable feedback on your project, no matter where you are at in the writing process. I will provide you with a form to complete with questions about your current work-in-progress. It can be a book you are planning to write, a book you’re currently writing, or a book you’ve already written in draft. Once you return the completed form to me, I’ll return it to you with my feedback, and we will set up a 30-minute coaching call to discuss. Fee is $150. Click to Book a Mini Coaching Session.
This is for you if you’ve written the first 50 pages of your book, or if you have a finished draft, and would like a professional book coach and editor to evaluate your pages before you write forward or start revisions.
This evaluation consists of a one-pass read and evaluation of the first 50, double-spaced pages of your manuscript. You will receive a minimum 3-5 page editorial letter identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your pages with respect to big-picture elements such as structure, plot, character development, and point of view. Once I’ve delivered the editorial letter, we will schedule a 30-minute coaching call to discuss any questions you have about my feedback. A 50-page manuscript evaluation is $600. Half is due at time of booking, the other half is due once your deliverables are ready. A 50% deposit is due at time of booking, with the balance due prior to delivery of editorial letter.

If you are working on a short story, essay, or other project that is 10,000 words or less, please contact me for rates.
Additional services offered on a limited basis to my book coaching clients include development of a query package (query letter, synopsis, first pages, an agent list, and pitch plan), as well as developmental editing, line editing, and copy editing.
