STORY DEVELOPMENT

If you've ever been caught in the frustrating cycle of writer's block, unmet expectations, and abandoned drafts, and if you've ever dreamt of penning a story or memoir that transcends the ordinary, you'll know it's far easier to imagine it than execute it. Without a robust blueprint and upfront planning, you're risking losing momentum and losing heart. This should be an exciting time, not a tale of what shoulda woulda coulda been.

Enter the solution: Me! My tailored approach isn't just about avoiding pitfalls; it's about crafting a story that entices your readers in, then glues them there. A narrative so compelling they'll neglect their bladder, their chores, and even their family!

Here's how it works: You'll have four deadlines to blueprint your story and we'll have four 60-minute coaching calls, all timed to keep you on track and moving towards your literary goals. This is a comprehensive journey, okay? It's engineered to endow you with a foolproof blueprint for your story.


INVESTMENT
For just $1000, you're not just buying a service; you're securing your chance to craft a story that resonates, captivates, and most importantly, fulfils the vision (and characters) you've been hauling around in your writer's soul.

MANUSCRIPT EVALUATION

If you've ever read through your manuscript and thought, "This could be epic, if only...", you're not alone. Even the most successful writers hit moments when they're unable to unlock the full potential of their work. But imagine if you had a seasoned professional to help you find the right key and paving the way for your manuscript to be the best it can be.
That's where I come in! My Manuscript Evaluation service isn't just an analysis; it's a deep exploration of your work. First, I'll immerse myself in your manuscript for a solid 4-6 weeks, making comments on every page, identify what's working and what's not.


What you'll receive isn't just a detailed editorial letter but a guide that pinpoints the most crucial elements that need addressing and advises you on the next steps for tackling them. And while this isn't a line edit, rest assured that my inline comments alone will serve as beacons that guide you towards improvement.


Once you've received my feedback, and let it settle with you, we'll get together for a 60-minute call. That's the perfect opportunity for you ask me any questions and for us to agree your best way forward.


INVESTMENT
For manuscripts up to 80,000 words, the investment stands at $1875. Do you have a manuscript that's over that word count? No worries—just add $22.50 for every additional 1,000 words (or part thereof). Naturally, longer manuscripts will require a bit more time for evaluation.

MANUSCRIPT REVISION

Dream of elevating your fiction or memoir from 'just okay' to 'jaw-droppingly incredible'? If you're nodding your head, you're precisely the writer who'll benefit from this premium, intensive coaching service.

Here's the real talk: Turning a manuscript into a polished gem isn't for the faint of heart. It's an arduous, meticulous process. But what if you had a seasoned guide to illuminate the way, a Manuscript Maverick—yes, that'd be me—to lead you through the labyrinth of revisions?

Prepare for a deep-dive like no other. This coaching isn't just 'comprehensive'; it's a full-blown Manuscript Makeover. We'll tear into every chapter, identifying what needs a nip here, a tuck there, or perhaps an entire facelift. With pinpointed advice and actionable feedback, I'll help you breathe new life into your manuscript, transforming it into the literary tour de force you always knew it could be.

INVESTMENT

The stakes are high but so is the payoff. At $450 a month, you're not just buying time—you're investing in a tale that won't just live on bookshelves but in the hearts of your readers. It's not merely an expense; it's a down payment on your literary legacy.

PITCH PACKAGE DEVELOPMENT

So you've penned your book—congratulations! That's no small feat. But if you think the quest ends here, brace yourself. You're now entering the realm of agent hunting, a landscape as tricky to navigate as any epic fantasy saga.

While a sword and chain mail might not be required (tempting as that sounds), you do need a different kind of armoury to conquer this next phase. Enter: the Perfect Pitch Package.

Don't be fooled; cobbling together a pitch package is akin to alchemy. An enticing query letter, an irresistible synopsis, a vetted list of literary agents, and a pitch strategy that hits the bullseye—each element must be pure gold. Anything less could doom your manuscript to the slush pile.

But fear not! As your Literary Strategist, I'll walk you through every nuance, crafting a pitch package that'll make agents sit up and pay heed. And yes, I'll even put on my detective hat to dig up the agents most likely to fall head over heels for your work. The caveat? I reserve this premium service for clients I've already had the pleasure of guiding through a manuscript evaluation.

INVESTMENT

At $1200, you're not just splashing cash on another service; you're investing in your future as a published author. Consider this the VIP ticket to not just any literary agent, but the RIGHT one.
