Three Ways We Turn Your Words Into Profits

Book Coaching

For when you’ve got a great idea for your book, but you don’t know what to do next.

I’ll work with you one-on-one to turn that idea into a comprehensive outline, develop a writing strategy that actually works for you, and support you through every step of the writing process.

That idea of yours is taking your money by sitting inside your head doing nothing. Don’t let it steal any more!

Editing

For when you’ve pushed yourself through the first draft, but it just doesn’t feel right yet.

I’ll bring my Master Wordsmith™ magic to your text, not only fixing typos but also maximizing clarity, relating your message more strongly to your ideal audience, dialing up your emotional impact and helping you sound like the authority you are. In today’s market it’s not enough to be good anymore—so let’s take your words from good to great.

Ghostwriting

For when your business needs an amazing book, but you’re too busy running the business to write it yourself.

By bringing me on as your ghostwriter, you’ll save yourself dozens of hours while putting your focus and skills back into your business where they’re needed most. You’ll hand off 80% of the project to a writing expert with an open calendar. And you’ll still have the final say on how your book ends up. Bandwidth is a precious commodity—use mine instead of yours!

Not sure where to start?

The Project Evaluation

You've probably noticed that each of these services starts with a project evaluation. This step is the transition between talking about your project and actually starting it, and as such it can be booked as part of a project package (if you know you're ready to go) or individually (if you'd like to do a trial run first). Project evaluations typically take 1-2 weeks.

The evaluation serves three purposes:

  1. To give you a clear sense of what working with me will include and entail before you make a full financial commitment,
  2. To give me as clear a sense of what I’ll need to bring to your project to make it a masterpiece, and
  3. To allow me to give you a clear and accurate timeline and investment proposal for the project

So for your project evaluation, I will evaluate your book draft, outline, strategy, and/or plan in depth, and put together a detailed report of your project’s needs, including a proposed timeline and price quote. For book coaching, this evaluation includes a preliminary book creation strategy; for editing, it includes a sample edit of approx. 2,000 words; and for ghostwriting it includes a sample written chapter of approx. 2,000 words. This gives you not only my opinion on the project’s needs but also a snapshot of how I’d work on it.

A typical evaluation costs $1,000-$3,000, depending on what kind of work it includes and a few other factors. The good news, however, is that if you start a full project with me within 30 days of the eval, I'll deduct the eval fee from the project fee so you're not paying me twice for the same work .

Contracts & Payments

All project and evaluation work is governed by two contracts: a Master Client Services Agreement covering our general work together; and a Statement of Work that specifies the terms of each evaluation or project in detail. These documents will be reviewed and signed by both parties before work begins.

Payments can be made by credit card or PayPal invoice. Work will begin once the first agreed-upon payment is received.
