Editing Services

You’ve written that book but now have no idea if it is any good. You want to send it to agents, or even self publish, but suspect you need a professional opinion. That’s where I come in.

With 30+ years of writing/editing/publishing experience, I will read through your finished manuscript a couple times, and write up a 10+ page report about your POV, structure, antagonistic forces, plot, character, and genre. I’ll look at sentence construction too, and offer tips on how to grow your craft. Finally, I’ll provide several revision options for your next draft.

Cost is on a sliding scale from $1800.00-$3800.00 and I leave it to you to set your price.

Contact me at to get on my calendar.

Bones of Storytelling, in an audio format, is like attending a class. It’s been recorded in an actual class, so you enjoy that sense of being a fly on the wall. There is a combination of audio and video too. Bones teaches all your foundations: concept, theme, outlining, structure for commercial work/literary work/memoir, plot, antagonists forces, inner and outer arc, setting, and strategies for your first and second drafts. Bones is ten hours long, with handouts you can click and print, as well as suggested assignments. You will walk away knowing how to write a wonderful book.

Cost: $325.00

Scene vs. Exposition: Most writers create stories with 85% exposition and 15% scene. This class teaches you to flip that equation and how to write compelling, memorable scenes that draw and hold the reader. As with Bones, this is a recorded teaching done during a live class.

Cost: $225.00
