BOOK PROPOSAL DEVELOPMENT

Proposals are carefully curated, like nutrient-rich tapas. Your proposal is essentially your book’s marketing material. There’s an art form and a method. As a 25-year marketer, I’m wordsmithy and have created countless marketing plans for beloved brands espousing values, ideas, concepts, and campaigns. As an author myself, I have crafted my personal proposals that have received the best reactions. I got this. I follow the format and best practices in Your Big Beautiful Book Proposal by Linda Sivertsen and Danielle LaPorte. I’m a Beautiful Writers retreat alum and can attest that this book is the standard for the modern literary market. If you don’t have it, STOP RIGHT NOW, go to your local bookstore and BUY IT. You can also download it. If you’d like to print, please do so on recycled paper or FSC approved paper.

MANUSCRIPT DEVELOPMENT

I offer three levels of service to help you craft a shiny manuscript ready for publication. I focus on a broad range of genres across fiction and non-fiction -- everything except scientific journals.

CUSTOMIZED SERVICES

I write, edit, and ghostwrite all types of materials and genres.
