Book Development

One-on-One Book Development

The Book Development Program is designed to help both fiction and non-fiction writers craft their best work.

For authors who have not started writing or who are not too far along in their manuscripts, I work with you from the beginning concept and outline through the research and writing phase offering guidance and suggestions, as needed, to help keep you focused on creating.

For authors who have made significant progress on their manuscripts, I help you clarify and refine your manuscript to get it ready for publication.

I offer three programs for authors at different stages in the writing process.

* Character Development Workshop covers key concepts of character development for fiction and how to present real people for non-fiction. The Character Development Workshop is offered quarterly.

** Program Development will not apply to all book projects but may be part of an overall marketing strategy for specific types of projects, for example, education, self-help, or coaching-related topics.

*** A $25.00/half-hour initial consultation fee will be charged to reserve your appointment time. This fee will be applied toward the cost of your project if we decide to work together.
