Pricing packages for The New Writer Interface
I offer several service packages here, all designed to take you through the publishing and promotion process. Once you become my client, that book is my project, too. Youíre always welcome to come back and ask questions, get advice, and stay in touch, even after weíre finished with the publishing process. I want to know how your book is doing. Iím not just offering a service and temporary support, Iím offering a relationship!
If you have a completed draft that youíre happy with, this is what you need. My basic submission package includes Submission Editing Ė-- this means I polish your prose without making major content changes -- in electronic or paper format.
I will give you a complete report on the strengths and weaknesses of the book, including prose, story structure, and characterization.
I will give you an objective market evaluation. What genre or sub-genre does this book fit, and what type of publisher is likely to be interested in it? Or will it do better as a self-published book or ebook, and why?
Iíll offer you at least 3 publisher or agent recommendations, and Iíll provide support through the submission process. If youíre not sure what a letter means or you donít know if you need a publishing attorney or not for that contract, donít worry, Iíll help you. And if you choose to self-publish, Iíll recommend honest print publishers who do a good job and guide you through the process, and offer you information on ebook uploads and distribution, book cover options, and the like.
Iíll provide you with self-promotion information about what you need to do in order to reach readers, how best to design or revamp your website, and Iíll teach you how to use that blog or social media effectively.

Extensive Content Editing
If youíre bogged down, if you know itís a good book, if you simply need some help to make that book as effective and compelling as it can be, if your prose is weak and you know it, this editing and publishing package is for you. Itís particularly helpful if youíre writing a personal memoir, when itís easy to be Ďtoo closeí to your material to see weaknesses. Iíll read the manuscript and give you a detailed initial evaluation of marketability, structure, characterization, and prose. Iíll tell you what will work for readers and what may not, and what needs to be done to make that book compelling to readers in a particular market. Weíll decide together on any major changes to the story that might be needed. Then Iíll return the annotated draft to you for any changes that you choose to make.
When youíre happy with your changes, I will edit your revised draft for submission.
Youíll receive a market evaluation and at least 3 publisher or agent recommendations for the revised book, and support through submission process, the same services I offer with the basic Submission Package, including help building your self-promotional platform.

A la Carte
Do you need some help with a short story, blog posts, synopses or query letters, a nonfiction article? Iím happy to work on short form as well as long form. You can pay by the word and itís as much teaching as editing, so youíll improve your craft!
A la Carte Chapter and Short Form Editing
If you are working on a first draft or memoir and simply need help getting that first draft finished, I will work with you on a chapter by chapter basis. I also work with short fiction and short personal narratives. Iíll edit the chapter for submission and provide a report on its strength and weaknesses as part of the book as a whole. For short fiction and narratives, I edit for submission and provide a detailed report on its reader-connection and marketability.

If your book is already published, but you arenít getting sales, this is for you. If the book is still in progress, but you want to have a readership waiting for its release, this is a way to build that fan base early. Throwing a Facebook page up there is not going to automatically generate thousands of sales. You need to reach readers who do not know who you are. Iíll help you understand how you go about that. Youíll learn how to make your website more compelling, brand yourself, blog effectively, and how to reach out to readers who donít know you exist and will probably like your book. Weíll set up a promotional platform that suits you; one that you can manage comfortably. Iíll monitor and critique your blog posts, Facebook, Twitter, and newsletter material as you learn to use these tools effectively.

Chapter by Chapter
Are you just starting out with a new novel or memoir, or are you bogged down in the middle and not sure where to go? Iím a writing teacher as well as editor, and Iím happy to work with authors on the first draft, on a chapter by chapter basis. You send me one or several chapters at a time and Iíll edit them, show you how to improve your prose, and comment on the characterization and ongoing plot structure. You get a stronger first draft and you improve your craft skills.
