All the support a new writer needs to complete their first book. I offer writers services to help new writers create the best book they can.
These services include Proofreading, Editing, Commentary, Manuscript Critique – even Ghost writing, if that’s for more your style! Individual mentoring sessions can be booked via The Storyteller’s Academy membership at a discounted rate, or as a standalone service.
Proofreading is the process of reviewing a final written draft. By proofreading your writing, you can detect any errors and ensure accuracy prior to release or publishing.
Many writers benefit from comments written alongside their work which give insight into the clarity, style, structure and ‘readability’ of their writing.
EDITING & PROOFREADING (COMBINED)
Some writers prefer an editorial service to a commentary. This means that I work through your manuscript (or the parts of it you want to be looked at), changing, rephrasing and restructuring it.
Honest, constructive insights to enable the writer to make changes and produce the absolute best manuscript possible.
If you are someone who needs to write a book but lacks the time, know-how or even the inclination – Ghost writing is for you.
INDIVIDUAL MENTORING SESSIONS – ONLINE
Individual mentoring is invaluable for helping you see your way through the maze when you are working on your projects. You can get new ideas, check on whether you’re making your current ideas work for you, plus that vital accountability. Sessions are delivered over Zoom.
Joining The Storytellers’ Academy gives you a 1:1 hour long mentoring session with me. Additional 1:1 sessions can be booked by Storytellers’ Academy members at a discounted rate of £57. (Valued at £97 when bought separately from a package.)
It’s common for writers or aspiring writers to think they need to find a completely original idea for their novel. I talk to a lot of people who tell me they feel disappointed because they had a great idea for a novel they wanted to write, but then they discovered the book had already ‘been done’.
Writing sprints are all the rage with writers and authors. It doesn’t matter whether you write fiction or non-fiction. They work whatever genre or sub-genre you write. A writing sprint is a closely focused period of time spent writing. Some writers do twenty-
minute sprints. Others prefer half an hour or forty minutes. Most authors find that their words start running dry after this time period, but some keep going for an hour. There’s no right or wrong in this. Writers are human too (honestly!) and we are all different.
