Let’s make your novel GREAT.

This program is for you if

    •  you have completed a first draft of your novel.

Congratulations! You’ve completed a first draft. Please take a moment and pat yourself on the back, because you have reached a milestone which many people never do. 

And once you’ve taken a breath, it’s time to get to the real work. But where do you start?

This is where I come in. 

Over the next six months, we will take a “funnel” approach to revision. We’ll start wide, looking at the big picture, the overall story structure, and themes. Then we’ll move into scene and character development, voice, tone, and other issues which impact the trajectory of the story. Each pass we take will be intentional and focused.

* Additional coaching may be added on a month-to-month basis as needed.


Using a step-by-step process, we’ll revise and polish:

  • your story structure
  • your characters
  • your plot
  • your themes and messaging

…and much, much more!

You’ll leave this program with:

  • a manuscript that is ready to be taken wherever you want to take it!
