Typically books written are within the 50,000 to 80,000 word range and fall within the genres of Young Adult, New Adult, Autobiographical Fiction, Coming of Age or Memoir.
Price is negotiated based on the length, genre, and amount of direction given by the client. Discounts are given for repeat clients and payment plans are encouraged. A deposit is required before work commences and this is non-refundable, usually 10%.
The process will require a number of drafts and it is strongly suggested you have an editor pass their eyes over the work.
I am available to either copy or content edit, find plot holes, flat characters or just plain clunky sentences. (Sliding scale available).
Want to write but not sure where to start? Perhaps you need a little push in the right direction. I will work out a personal formula that is just for you. Having worked one on one for several years in a tertiary setting I’ve become accustomed to asking the right questions to find out what kind of learner you are, and how best to make you perform at your peak. Your package could include things like writing prompts, constructive feedback, book recommendations, deadlines to keep you on track, check ins to hold you accountable, social media advice, story structure suggestions and much, much more. These session can be in person if you are local to me, via telephone, Skype or other internet based connection and can be held weekly, fortnightly, monthly, bimonthly or six monthly depending on your needs. These will be paid for as you go with a typical session requiring one hour preparation, one hour reading and compiling feedback (if applicable) and one to two hours face to face. I work on a sliding scale as I believe creative expression should not be stifled due to financial hardships. Please contact me to discuss a rate that will fit your budget.
