Getting Started:

Heather helps writers find and coax their ideas into outlines and story shapes, create treatments and proposals, and begin to get words on the page. She tailors her feedback to the individual writer's goals, helping them see the opening choices they can make when considering voice, setting, POV's, characterization, plot, theme, structure, and tone. The cost is $75 per session, up to 45 minutes. 

Book Incubation and Development:

For those seeking weekly motivation, guidance, and editorial feedback for their works-in-progress, Heather offers personalized remote workshops. Writers submit up to 15 pages weekly, and have a scheduled call with Heather during which she provides editorial feedback, helping writers consider voice, point of view, narrative drive, plotting, theme, purpose, characterization, dialogue, description, reflection, tone, pacing, setting, scene, conflict, chapter development, language, and the all-important emotion of the work. Personalized workshops are priced at $45 per weekly session.

Developmental Editing: 

For completed manuscripts, Heather offers developmental editing to help writers shape their works into page-turning, driven, emotionally-compelling narratives. Drawing out the intentions of the writer, and keeping an eye on story structure and shape, she helps the writer close the gap between vision and execution.   

She provides a detailed written report and notes within the manuscript. Additionally, she provides two conference calls-- one to discuss the report and help the writer consider a plan of action for making changes, and a second call to address any lingering concerns. Developmental editing is priced at 2 cents a word.   

Pre-publication planning: In addition to editorial help, Heather offers assistance with book proposals, querying, finding an agent, building a platform, marketing and publicity ideas, and everything else it takes to bring your work to market. Priced per scope of the work.
