Services for Writers
What happens to the words you write? Will they end up in a slush pile on an editor’s desk? Sitting in an agent’s inbox? Will your words stay hidden, buried in some file on your computer’s hard drive?
Every successful writer has enlisted help from others. Nobody gets to the top alone, but with commitment, passion, and a little assistance, a dedicated writer can craft words that people want to read, words that people will pay to read.
Launching an author website or hiring an editor or a writing coach is a big step for any writer, and an important one. When you hire a professional to edit, proofread, or critique your work, you are investing in your writing and in your future. More importantly, you are investing in yourself.
I have a broad range of writing experience: I work full time as a website manager, writing coach, and author. My passion is helping other writers meet their full potential. If you’re looking for someone to guide you through the writing process, offer constructive feedback on your novel, or assist with promoting your writing through your blog or website, then look no further. I’m here to help.
As a writing coach, I help my clients stay focused so they can reach their goals, and I provide guidance and constructive feedback to improve their writing. I work with fiction and creative nonfiction writers on projects that range from blogging to writing novels. I’ve taken writers through the entire process of writing a book, from concept to publication.
My job is to help you realize your creative vision and make sure you reach your full potential as a writer. Coaching is tailored to your needs, skill level, and the particulars of your project.
The result? You’ll reach your goals, become a better writer, and produce polished work that is suitable for publication.

Author Websites and Online Marketing
An author website is one of the best ways to build a loyal readership and keep your readers informed about your writing projects. I provide website design and long-term website management for authors who want to create an effective online presence.
But online marketing goes beyond a website. I can also help with building and managing social media, mailing lists, and other online marketing efforts to ensure that your writing reaches its audience.
I can also show you how to update your own website and run a successful blog.
How to Get Started
Let me know whether you want a new website or a redesign, if you’d like to develop an online marketing campaign, or if you need guidance to manage your own website and marketing efforts. There’s no obligation until you decide to sign up.
I look forward to helping you build your readership and reach all your writing goals.
As your developmental editor, I will collaborate with you to hone your ideas and develop them into a concrete, comprehensive manuscript.
I provide developmental editing for book-length writing projects that are in the early stages of development — outlines or drafts. The focus is on the content rather than grammar, spelling, punctuation, or sentence structure.
Fiction: Are your characters realistic, and do they have full arcs? Is your plot engaging, and do the subplots support the central story? Do themes emerge? Is your story well structured? Is the pacing appropriate, and is every element in the story essential?
Nonfiction: Is the concept clear and focused? Could the structure be improved? Is there missing or extraneous content? How can the material best be organized into a book?
I can help you answer all these questions and more.
How to Get Started
To get started, simply contact me and tell me about your writing project. There is no obligation until you receive a quote and issue your first payment.
I look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck with your creative writing.
