Professional Writing Coach

I enjoy helping writers almost as much as I love writing and I find great joy in seeing writers achieve their dreams.

Some of the writing coach services I offer are listed below, but if you have a need that you don’t see listed feel free to email me and we’ll discuss it.

A few things you need to know:

-Due to time constraints, I only work with a few clients per year.

-I’m picky and only work with clients that I feel are a good fit for my particular expertise. I don’t want to waste your time or my time trying to make something work that isn’t a good fit.

-I do not work with clients who write fiction, primarily because I read very little fiction and would not be of much help.

-Since every project and every writer is unique, prices vary accordingly.  Contact me with the details of your project and I can give you a cost estimate.

-When you email me, include your name and contact information, the service you are requesting, a brief description of your writing project which includes your mission/goal and your target audience, and links to any pertinent websites or any online writing that goes along with your writing project. It’s really important that I have a crystal clear vision of what you’re trying to accomplish.

Services I offer:

Book proposal preparation: I don’t write the book proposal for you, but I can offer a detailed analysis and plan of action to take it from good to fabulous. I have an excellent track record with clients receiving publishing contracts from book proposals we’ve worked on together.

Manuscript preparation: Publishers may not have the budget to assign an editor to walk you through the process of writing a book. That’s where I come into the picture. I can hold your hand and help you through the entire process, whether you are a contracted author or self-publishing.

Editing and proofreading: I’m not an English major so if you need someone to help you find every itty bitty grammatical error, look elsewhere. If you need someone to find the big mistakes and perform line by line edits to strengthen and tighten your writing until it shines, I’m your girl.

Brainstorming: Need a sound board for your writing ideas? Want someone to help organize your brilliant ideas into a workable table of contents or book format? Need some advice concerning your writing career? I can offer these services and more.

Encouragement: Whether it’s vision-casting, prayer, or an accountability partner that you need, I’m a fabulous encourager! I offer honest and uplifting feedback to help you achieve your goals.
