Services for Writers

Do you have an idea you need help taking to the finish line?

–> Hire me as your writing coach.

My superpower is an ability to deeply listen and draw out the best ideas from clients. I help spark ideas and build strategies.

I have collaborated with bestselling authors and aspiring writers new to the craft. Their projects spanned a range of genres, including historical fiction, literary fiction, memoir, paranormal romance, poetry, science fiction, and nonfiction.

I love helping writers finish what they start.

Editing Services

I will work closely with you to evaluate the strengths of your manuscript, pinpoint areas for improvement, and provide feedback and guidance on how to revise your work. Some of the key elements that we will focus on include:

  • Overall structure: I will evaluate the pacing, plot twists, and development of the story. This may involve suggesting content reorganization, altered section breaks, or the development of an outline to improve the flow of the manuscript.
  • Characterization (if applicable): I will assess how well the characters are developed, whether they are believable, relatable, and consistent throughout the story.
  • Dialogue / Source Material: (if applicable) I will evaluate the dialogue or source material to ensure that it is realistic, engaging, and advances the dynamics of the manuscript.
  • Style, voice, and tone: I will assess the writing style and tone to ensure that they are suitable for the intended audience and genre.
  • Theme: I will consider the underlying message or themes of the work, and suggest ways to make them more impactful or clear.
  • Clarity and readability: I will help you to express your ideas clearly and concisely, using language that is accessible and easy to understand. This can involve rephrasing sentences, eliminating jargon, or explaining complex concepts.
  • Identification and resolution of potential issues: I will help you identify gaps in content, inconsistencies in tone, or areas that may need further explanation.
  • Increased credibility and impact (if applicable): A well-written and well-organized book can help to establish you as an expert in your field and increase your credibility with readers. I will help maximize the book’s potential to influence and inspire readers.

Throughout the process, we’ll maintain an open channel of communication, and I’ll be available to provide necessary clarifications as you make your final revisions.

Writing Coaching

As your coach, I am committed to supporting you throughout your writing process. Whether you need help starting and finishing a book, staying disciplined, organizing a messy project, or aligning your voice to your vision, I’m your guy.

We can arrange biweekly meetings, which provides the ideal pace for most writers. This allows you the freedom to work at your own pace and account for life’s ups and downs in between calls.

If your writing project is a top priority and you have ample time to work on it, we can meet weekly to keep the momentum going. Whatever your needs, I will work with you to establish a schedule that suits you best.

To help you stay in breakthrough mode, you’ll get regular manuscript support via email/chat, document annotations and commentary, plus focused one-hour phone consultations.
