I provide a range of services all aimed at helping you create the best non-fiction manuscript possible, one that says to an agent or acquisitions editor, “We need to find a way to publish this.”

Ideation—you have this great idea for a book. Or do you? Sort of a brainstorming session to sharpen your idea before you start writing. You send me your pitch. I read it and respond with a written critique. Then we get on the phone and wrestle with it until it dazzles.

Coaching—more of a relationship during the writing process. You get stuck and need another set of eyes/an outside opinion. You’re making great progress, but will anyone want to read this? You want to add a new section, but aren’t sure.
