The process

white space faded.png
  1. Contact me: 
    Set up a time for us to speak over the phone or wifi.

  2. Consultation: 
    We'll discuss your project in detail. Then, you'll send me a writing sample if you have one.

  3. Quote: 
    I will give you a quote covering the cost and estimated time it will take to complete your project.

  4. You decide:
    If we work together, I'll send you an agreement, which you'll read, sign, and send back to me. 

  5. Conference: 
    We'll meet in person to talk about your project in length, covering all of the details from beginning to end. I'll travel to your location in order to do this. While I recommend we meet in person, we can do this virtually if you prefer. 

  6. Outline:
    I will give you an outline of your project covering all of its salient points.

  7. Submission Schedule: 
    We'll devise a submission schedule that works for you. 

  8. Drafting: 
    During development, I'll match my writing to your own, and complete a manuscript that fits the image of the book you have in mind.

  9. Modifications:
    I'll modify the draft as needed until it matches your vision.

  10. Completion: Final submission is sent to you. Your manuscript is complete and ready to shop.

  11. Marketing:
    I will prepare your book for sale on a digital platform if you choose to self publish. If you wish to publish in the traditional fashion, I will write your query letter, and submit your manuscript to agents.

  12. Insight:
    I'll share with you all I know about the publishing process, tips on querying, magazine and journal submissions, and how and when to submit your book to agents.

  13. Relationship:
    We'll brainstorm, strategize, and execute ideas quickly and powerfully to get your book on the shelves.

Here's what the process looks like:

Ready to get started?

In our call, we will discuss your book idea, your goals for it, and how we would work together. If you want me to write your book, we'll schedule a follow up meeting to dive in to your idea and give it all the time it needs.
