Ghostwriting

Writing is hard. If you need something written—from an article to a book—have a professional do it, in order to get a professional result. I'm an experienced ghostwriter, writing both nonfiction and fiction for others. I've worked with Indie and Traditional Publishers, including Ballantine and Random House, and I understand how to write a publishable book. My process includes expert research and interviewing, outlining, writing, and editing. With my help, your thoughts and ideas will reach fruition, ready for publication.

Content Development (Plotting / Brainstorming Assistance)

What do I write about? Who are my characters, and what should they do? These are some of the problems for new and experienced writers, alike. If you don't know what story to write next, or if you're stuck in your manuscript, I will brainstorm with you, guiding you to a fully thought-out plot. I've assisted New York Times Bestselling authors to plot their books, and I can help you.

Fees: $50 for a one-hour telephone session

Developmental Editing

You've written a manuscript, or you're well on your way. Before the spelling and grammar can be checked, you need experienced eyes to make sure that your story is everything you wanted it to be. Are the characters realistic? Does the plot flow? Does the timeline make sense? In other words, is the book good? With gentle help and positive reinforcement, I will read your manuscript and give you detailed suggestions to help polish your story before it heads to the final editing process.

Fees: $2 per double-spaced 12-font page

Writing Coaching

Where do I begin? Where do I end? And how about the middle? Correct story structure is the Holy Grail secret that I can share with you. No matter what your level of writing experience, I can help get you to the next level. Through general instructions on outlining and story structure, as well as sessions on the telephone and feedback through email, I will hold your hand through the process of becoming a better and more productive writer.
