Nonfiction book editing & strategy
services that meet you where you are.
DO ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?
When's the best time to work with an editor?
Working with an editor gives you personalized guidance, support, and accountability to fast-track your growth as an author and get you through the long, hard marathon of writing a book you’ll be proud of. The best time to work with an editor is before you start writing. The next best time after that is now.
A plan to succeed
Book Discovery & Content Strategy
I’ll help you clarify your book concept, activate your most powerful, purpose-driven idea, and ground you writing success with a sound writing strategy.
Have a few ideas? I’ll help you see which to tackle first through a proven analysis. From there, we’ll pin down your book’s foundational elements–like structure, content, audience, voice–to arrive at a book writing plan that guides you to writing your best book.
SUPPORT TO FINISH
Book Coaching & Developmental Editing
Ongoing sessions give you personalized guidance and actionable feedback to keep moving toward your biggest book vision. Working with me is the most efficient way to write a book that meets and exceeds your goals.
Have a manuscript that’s not working? The Story Grid Diagnostic is high-level analysis that yields actionable insight. I’ll look at key criteria for your non-fiction book’s success, identify gaps or issues and suggest next steps.
strategy that sells
Book Proposal & Title Consulting
Seeking a traditional publishing deal? A book proposal that grabs the attention of agents and makes the business case for your book is key to landing a publishing deal. A pitch plan is your personal roadmap to landing that deal. Getting these right puts you well ahead of an ocean of writers who don’t.
Drawing from my background in marketing and strategy, I have a proven process for seeing your most magnetic title, crafting messaging that grabs readers’ hearts and minds, and mapping your best, most joyful path to getting your book out into the world.
