Manuscript Coach/Editor

I love coaching authors!


This is more than a straight-forward editorial service. I have a unique one-on-one coaching system that teaches you to prepare your manuscript for submission to an agent or edit for e-book. One of my favorite things to do is help authors learn how to edit their own manuscripts, saving you money and giving you the control you want. This method involves compassionately teaching how to view your manuscript with first-time eyes, and lovingly going through your baby to find hidden themes, polish the gems, and remove what isn’t working – all while honoring your unique voice. This coaching system is great for:


  • First-time authors
  • Completed first drafts
  • NaNoWriMo Manuscripts
  • That last polish prior to submitting




1-on-1 Coaching Session: Approximately 2 hours: We’ll go through your first fifteen to twenty pages as an editorial tutoring guide. I’ll explain some easy editorial principles, great tricks to trim your manuscript if needed, and ways to seek out those hidden gems. We’ll also take a look at that all-important first sentence/paragraph/page to make sure it will command your reader’s attention. Cost: $150.


Manuscript Critique: This includes the initial 1-on-1 session, and prices vary greatly.
