Jennifer Lauck is available
to help in the following categories

Developmental Evaluations

This is a survey of your entire project. Jennifer reads your book a couple times, makes light line edits, and studies the whole. She writes a 6-10 page report on your book, noting what’s working, why, and what’s not working and how to fix it. There is a one hour follow up meeting, on line, or in person, to discuss the entire project. Writers leave this experience with clear direction for a redraft.
Sliding scale: $1500.00-3000.00

One on One Consultation

The one on one consults are for the writer who needs individual attention. The process is to submit your work and Jennifer will read your the pages, make line edits, and then meet with the writer to discuss the opportunities within the work. She provides advice, examples, and homework. The minimum submission is 3000 words. Add $10.50 per additional 250 words.

$125.00 per 3000 words.
