Give me an hour and I’ll show you how to improve your manuscript!

Professional and Olympic athletes, business people, CEO’s and yes, especially published authors— have coaches.   If you’re serious about your writing career, you should have one too.

Consulting & Coaching I

What You Can Expect From  a Consulting Session

1) Telephone coaching sessions last a full hour. I will have read and evaluated the manuscript before the call and will be ready to roll up my sleeves and get into the trenches with you.

2) During the call I will ask some questions which will be fun to answer, and some which will be harder to answer. I'll discuss your manuscript with you, and we'll have a conversation about what you can do to help make your manuscript better. Depending on your manuscript, we'll talk things like finding your story, developing your plot, understanding your characters or refining your language.

3) I’ll be supportive, but I will also be completely honest with you. Although you might not always like what I say, at the end of the call I guarantee you’ll have a better sense of what you need to do in order to improve your manuscript.

Consulting & Coaching II

What You Can Expect From  a Consulting Session

If we make the decision to work together I will review your manuscript and offer you a one hour consultation/critique on it. I will·

  • Show you the commercial possibilities that your book has for a sale (or if it doesn’t).
  • Further help to develop your skills, refine your writing craft:
  • Help accelerate your learning curve and support you through out your process
  • Help you master the different and very important elements that goes into a compelling children’s picture book. Allow you to pick my brain and answer any questions you have.
  • Help mold your characters, brainstorm solution, refine plots.

You’ll really be amazed by what you can get in an hour. I promise after our consultation you will have a more publishable product, understand what you have to do (or not do) to get your manuscript up to submission status,and beyond that lead you to your sale.

You need to be willing to listen, to take direction and implement the suggestions I give you. We all have egos… but for you to grow and prosper you will have to be open to “loving” criticism.  For the money you’re paying me I will tell what you HAVE to hear,  not what you want to hear.  But I promise I’ll be gentle. And respectful.
