90-Minute Jump Start Session

In this session I can help you jump start a new writing project by helping you focus your ideas and create a rough outline. I can also help you plan your writing time so you can easily finish your book by your deadline. At the end of the session, you’ll have a clear idea of what you are going to write and a specific plan for writing it.

90-Minute Break through Your Block Session

If you’ve been struggling with writer’s block, I can help you identify why you’re blocked, break through the block, and get you re-energised about your project. In your session, we’ll also discuss how you can prevent future blocks and make a plan so you can finish your book by your deadline (and still be a sane, happy writer at the end!). At the end of the session, you’ll be ready to write again, and you’ll know what to do should writer’s block rear it’s ugly head again.

Idea to Full Draft in 6 Months

If you know you need regular support and accountability to finish your book, this is the package for you. We’ll start with a 90-Minute Jump Start Session (see above for details), and then we’ll have either weekly 30-minute check ins, or fortnightly 60-minute ones (your choice). In our regular calls, we’ll discuss your progress, tweak your writing plan, and address any problems you’re having with the writing process. You’ll also be able to email me whenever you’re stuck and have extra accountability through daily or weekly (your choice) email progress reports.

At the end of 6 months, you’ll have a solid draft that you’ve revised at least once, and you’ll be ready to send it off for proofreading before you publish it!

Idea to Full Draft (up to 50k words) in 7 Months + Developmental Editing

Choose this option if you know you need the support of the previous option (6 months of support calls – these will be put on hold while I do the developmental edit) and extra help with big picture issues like structure, focus, tone, and point of view. Please note that developmental editing does not involve fixing sentence level issues. If I notice you making the same mistake over and over, I’ll flag it up in a comment and explain how to fix it.

In addition to regular writing support, with this option I will read your rough draft (usually around the 3 month point) and help you shape the book. I’ll send you a full assessment of the structure, focus, tone, and point of view of the book, and I will make suggestions for improving them. In addition to my assessment, I’ll send you a restructured version of your book. When you receive this, remember that you are the author, and you decide which suggestions to take and which to leave.

At the end of 7 months, you’ll have a fully revised draft with a structure you are confident in; it will be ready to proofread and publish.

To book your first session, simply contact me here and let me know whether you want to be invoiced in pounds sterling or US dollars; then, we’ll schedule your session, and I’ll send you a pre-session questionnaire. Don’t worry, it’s short, but it helps me prepare to help you.

If your book is longer than 50,000 words, let me know, and I will send you a quote for this option.

Idea to Full Draft (up to 50k words) in 7 Months + Proofreading

Choose this option if you know you need the support of the Idea to Full Draft in 6 Months option (6 months of support calls to end when you submit the draft for proofreading), but you want me to proofread it when you finish. Your proofread draft will still be in your voice, but it will be free of annoying typos and errors. As I proofread, I’ll also note any passages that are confusing or need more work, and you’ll have the opportunity to rewrite those and return them for proofreading.

At the end of 7 months, you’ll have a polished draft that’s ready to publish.

Idea to Full Draft (up to 50k words) in 8 Months + Developmental Editing and Proofreading
