Step 1: Romance Novel Sketch
This is a great way to get a taste of what book coaching with me is like and get feedback on your novel idea. I’ll provide my Romance Novel Sketch Workbook for you, written notes on your completed Romance Novel Sketch and we’ll have a coaching call to chat through the feedback and your next steps.
- Margin notes and a one-page letter outlining what is fabulous about your story idea and pointing out what needs to be refined more.
- One 20-minute coaching call to chat through the feedback and your next steps.
Investment: $98 CAD and 1 week
Step 2: Novel Planning
Once we’ve nailed down your novel premise using the Romance Novel Sketch, we’ll work together to go deeper into the idea and what needs to happen on the page. Using tools like Jennie Nash’s Blueprint for a Book method, you’ll finish the package with a clear vision for your book and an outline to use as you start drafting. Don’t worry, we can do this in a way that works for both planners and pansters.
- Weekly writing assignments and feedback to help you understand your book idea and plan it out in a way that works for you.
- Three 40-minute coaching calls to chat through the exercises, the feedback, and the ideas they generate.
Investment: $750 CAD and 8 weeks
Step 3: Monthly Drafting Coaching
Now that you’ve got a solid vision of your book from doing the Novel Planning package, you’re ready to start drafting confidently. Through regular writing deadlines and feedback on your pages, as well as opportunities to talk through questions, plot holes, and other writing challenges, you’ll feel empowered as writer.
- Weekly email check-ins with writing exercises, assignments, and tips.
- Feedback and encouragement on your manuscript as you draft it.
- Once or twice a month on up to 20 manuscript pages.
- Margin notes AND editorial letters to help you understand what’s working, what’s not working, and find ways to improve the pages.
- 40-minute coaching calls to chat through your questions, the feedback, and brainstorm our way through anything that’s blocking your progress.
- One or two calls per month.
Investment: $250-$500 CAD per month and a three-month commitment.
