AUTHOR COACHING

STRUCTURAL EDITING: Do you want your story
to stick with readers for days, weeks or  months
to come? Whether you're a seasoned professional or
an aspiring author, a structural edit could be the
difference between a book that resonates and one that
is easily forgotten.

   A structural edit analyses target market, characterisation, GMC (goal, motivation and conflict), pacing, setting, plot, narrative voice, structure, POV and more to help you make your novel the best it can be. This form of edit is comprised of a multi-page report and a marked up manuscript, leaving you with easy-to-follow instructions that will make your story stronger.

 

LINE EDITING: A line edit is your standard form of editing, CREATIVE ink style. Think basic spelling and grammar, plus benefits. From repetition to inconsistencies, unnecessary words to awkward phrasing, and even bigger-scale issues that you might need a second set of eyes to see (and trust me, we've all been there—when you're the author, it's hard to see the forest for the trees!), this is the edit for you.

   A line edit consists of one pass and a two-hour revision to allow you to workshop any problem areas in your story and have them looked over. A second read is available on request for an additional (reduced) fee.

Writing can be lonely - but it doesn't have to be. What if you could have someone in your corner while you created? What if there was someone to bounce ideas off? What if there was someone to keep you accountable? What if there was someone who truly cared about the success of your novel and who was able to offer you expert advice when it came to writing your story?

   A writing coach is an invaluable person to have on your team. Part mentor, part cheerleader, part organiser, a coach is a great way to help you finish your novel faster. 

   I have been coaching authors for three years and love helping them take their craft to the next level. 

HOW IT WORKS

Every two weeks, we will have a 30-minute (minimum) meeting via Zoom where we discuss your work-in-progress (WIP) and any challenges you may be facing in the writing field. 

   Prior to the call, I will have edited 2,000 words of your WIP and will explain my feedback to you during the call as well as suggest any craft notes for you to take on board.

   Finally, you will receive a summary of our call and that 2,000-word sample back with tracked changes in Microsoft Word. 

PRICE: $129AUD (approx. $96USD) for two sessions (must be used consecutively)
