Project Fees & Hourly Rates

The goal of the coaching relationship is to empower authors to develop their manuscripts with little assistance; thus, the level of assistance depends on a client's needs and preferences.  Our manuscript development work is an ongoing process involving several of the services outlined below. 

If a feasibility review indicates that a book idea or rough manuscript may be worthy of further development and the author wishes to proceed, we consult closely at each step along the way to to establish a mutually acceptable scope and cost for subsequent work.  There are no surprises, and clients determine the services they need.  It is not in our interests, or yours, to suggest further work on a project that seems unlikely to attract an agent or publisher.

For individuals who wish to use specific services from time to time, the hourly rates listed below apply.  For coaching or consultation by phone, the client pays telephone toll charges.
