Manuscript Evaluation

I’ll read your book, make light notes on the document using Microsoft Word and then provide a 3-5 page editorial letter that gives you my thoughts on big picture issues like plot, pacing, characters, writing style and voice.

Developmental Edit

If you’re looking for a deep dive into your manuscript, this is the one. In addition to a heavily marked up manuscript and a long editorial letter, we’ll have a lot of back and forth collaboration about your writing process, what your intentions were when you started, and how you realized them.

Query Letter Review

Hate writing and overthinking your query letter. I understand. Having read thousands of them over the years, I know what works and doesn’t. Let me help you put your best foot forward with agents and publishers.

Ghostwriting

I’m available to write on a variety of topics on deadline. Although I can cover a lot of ground, I’m especially dialed into music, sports, politics, religion, and American pop culture. From blog posts to full books, I’m ready to write.

One on One Teaching

If you’ve got specific needs that aren’t covered by any of the above services, I can customize an editorial/consultant program for your book or situation. This can be a one time instance or an ongoing concern. Let me know what you need.

Phone Consultation

Have a few questions about writing or publishing? In the course of my publishing career I was responsible for the publication of over 120 books. I’d be glad to answer your questions about the writing process and the business of publishing over the phone.

Tell me about your project.
