Story Consults:

Looking for a second opinion? With my background in screenwriting and novel writing, I’ve got a strong ear for dialogue, pacing and story structure. Let me use my strengths to help you take your work to the next level.

What I Do:

  • Read your YA (or NA) story draft (up to 55,000 words), focusing on overall concept, story structure, themes, characters and their relationships and arcs. I can help you tighten scenes, and eliminate unnecessary characters and description. (I won’t proofread or review for spelling, or grammar, though.)

What You Get:

  • A 5-7 page in-depth written report based on detailed notes and analysis of your draft. (I promise not to send a .pdf list of generic advice.)
  • One-on-one meeting (via phone, email, or in person) to discuss your draft and any recommendations to create a stronger, more engaging narrative.

Cost: $500
Turnaround time from receipt of manuscript to written report is 2-3 weeks. Send me an email with a quick synopsis, page count, genre and specific issues you’d like me to address and let’s touch base.
