I Love Books.

 

Need help editing or finishing your inspirational memoir or novel?

DSC_0003

I work with inspirational memoirists and novelists to structure, rewrite and refine their books. My background is in identifying and developing projects for Christian trade publishers. But since 2000 I’ve worked to help authors, agents and editors define their vision, present to publishers, and establish themselves as writers who bring everything they have to the page.

Typical projects schedule several months out, so if you’re considering professional editing or coaching, email for my rates and I’ll send you my free ebook “Five Secrets of Successful Authors” to help you prepare.

Then, I’ll evaluate your first 30 pages and we’ll discuss:
