Comprehensive Line Editing – Writing Coaching & Publishing Consultation - Ghostwriting

*: Please call me to schedule a time for us to talk about the details of your manuscript or writing project, or your interest in having a temporary writing coach. 

An in-depth phone discussion will help me to determine how I can serve you best based upon your desires, the manuscript’s stage of development, and other essentials I use to generate a cost quote we both can agree on. I’m here to help you get the results you’re looking for!

This first phone discussion/consultation I have with each prospective client is complimentary, and usually lasts about 30 minutes. Prior to this consultation, I may ask that you e-mail me a sample (3-4 pages) of your manuscript, for me to review. During the initial consultation, we'll spend some time getting to know each other, including my asking some specific questions that will help me get a sense of what you're intending to achieve with your manuscript. We'll also discuss the current stage of development of your manuscript, as well as various aspects of the material. You'll also have the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have. 

If you wish to hire me on as an editor, writing coach or both, we'll discuss whatever is necessary to begin moving forward with the work. I do require my clients to sign a contract with me (specifying each of our responsibilities to each other), and ask each client for a retainer up front, the amount primarily based on the length of the proposed work.
