I can help you create the effective and powerful sales tools you need to attract the attention of an agent or publisher, which is the first step in getting your manuscript published. These coaching and/or consulting services include:
o Determining the best possible avenue, whether it's contacting an agent, a publisher, or a self-publishing company . . . or all three
o Coaching as you write your query letter
o Helping you craft a concise cover letter (to accompany your submitted manuscript)
o Buffing up your manuscript first page to make it a compelling read
o Guiding you through the process of writing a synopsis
o Structuring or re-structuring your book proposal, plus whatever guidance you need to write the query and cover letters and compelling first page.
o I'll also help you develop or edit your Table of Contents, Chapter Outlines, Market Research, and Biography . . . elements required to create an effective book proposal package.
SETTING IT UP Contact me via email, describing your needs. After determining how best to handle these, I'll ask you to make payment via PayPal, for the initial hour. Then, we'll communicate, via email, to set an appointment at a time convenient for you. If your marketing needs include document review, you email them to me so I can review them before we talk. CONTACT Fee for 60 minutes is $75.
QUERY LETTER EVALUATION
Contact me via email and I'll email you instructions on how to format your query to submit it. After payment is made, you'll email the first draft which I'll evaluate thoroughly and email back to you. After revision, you can re-submit your second draft to receive a second evaluation either by email.
Your evaluated query letter will be much more detailed than the sample query letters posted on the "free evaluation" section of this site. First and second draft evaluation is $75. Use the secure Paypal option below.
GHOST QUERY LETTER WRITING

o Ghostwriting services also are available for certain non-fiction, self-help, how-to, spiritual and children's books as well as story synopses. Fees vary. For a free quotation, inquire at CONTACT.
