Creativity Coaching Services

As a Creativity Coach, I can mentor writers by providing invaluable feedback through the improvement of any fiction manuscript, because I am an actual published author with years of experience within the publishing industry. In every critique that I do, I give writers an honest assessment of their strengths and weaknesses, along with ways to improve any areas that might need more revision. It is such an honor to guide writers on their creative journey.

A full manuscript critique (developmental editing advice) is priced at a rate of $ 0.01 US. per word by PayPal Payment. Please submit with the standard submission formatting: double-spaced, 12 point font, Times New Roman, 1 in margins, and each chapter starts on a new page. 

During these difficult economic times, if you decide to retain my services, writer can pay half upfront and then the second payment once the the first half of the manuscript has been critiqued.

Turnaround time:

Once the manuscript has been submitted, along with first payment, the critique will be done within 2 weeks or less. (This may vary depending on the length of the manuscript)

*Please note: This service is only available to residents of the United States of America and Canada, and is only in the English language.

I understand that publishing is a complicated world and things change quickly. If you’re looking for someone to just clean up the grammar, than a different critique service may be the right choice for you. I consider myself a "writing mentor" with the goal of helping you to polish your work and improve your writing. However, this is a subjective business, and many suggestions will be based on my individual opinions and experiences, as well as my writing and editorial background. 

And I am only human and do occasionally make mistakes. I cannot guarantee all errors will be caught. I also cannot guarantee that you will be published or secure an agent following my critique. This is very much a talent based industry and much depends on the individual’s determination and drive to succeed. I will give you information I believe helpful, and try to guide you toward your goal. It's up to you to use my suggestions, put them into practice, and be receptive to feedback.
