About this Service

Nonfiction Book Proposal Editor (Limited One-Off Sessions)

I'm at capacity for client projects for 2024 but am offering a few one-off, 1-on-1, 60 minute sessions for the next 3 weeks due to an unexpected opening in my schedule. (Available June 26-July 16th only.)

I am a published author, writer, & editor with 20 years in marketing, branding & strategy. Storyteller soul with a marketing brain. It helped me acquire not one, but two literary agents, & sell my idea to a big-5 publisher for a 6-figure advance.

Having been on both sides, creative and strategy, I've got a unique vantage point that lends itself for developmental editing. I'm able to help hone your proposal through the lens of positioning, target audience, trends, and promotion. I understand what literary agents, editors, and publishers are looking, speak their language, and help make your idea crystal clear so you can bring it to the table.

My expertise is especially aligned for—nonfiction, creative nonfiction, personal growth, & business.

We can review anything in our hour together:

CONCEPTS: Bring your ideas or opportunity. I can give feedback, direction, clarity, or brainstorm.

PROPOSALS: We can review early drafts, rough proposals, or one that isn't getting traction.

SELLING: Have the writing but want to discuss the positioning, target audience, & the all important—why now?

MARKETING: Let me help you not dread the dreaded promotion & publicity.

STRATEGY: Recommendations on network building, audience building, & an evil plans.

Our consult outside of the 1-Hour face-to-face session includes feedback and reccs via email, recording of the call, & possible introductions to my network if it makes sense.

(One-Off -cannot be bundled)
