The Write Stuff Special
Editor: Kristen Lamb
Price: $55 USD
Availability: 10 Slots (or until October 31st)
About: Book sales less than stellar? Keep getting rejected and don’t know why? Struggling with the opening of your novel? Getting 20,000 or 30,000 words in and hitting a wall?
Likely time for some professional guidance.
The ‘Write Stuff’ Special might be the cure for what ails you (or your book).
Agents and editors only give us (writers) a few pages to hook their attention and hopefully a contract. Readers can be even pickier, skimming samples to see if they want to purchase or pass our on novel. Opening pages are crucial for book sales.
Generally, a pro can spot all your weaknesses (and strengths) in twenty pages, but what do we see? Why is the story starting out strong only to fizzle and fall apart? I will tell you for $2.75 a page.
I’ve plotted hundreds of novels, repaired even more, and edited tens of thousands of pages in every genre. Make the most of your time. Stop taking classes on character if that isn’t a weakness. This diagnostic can show you, specifically, where your work needs help (if any).
If you want the truth about your writing, I’m here to help.
***This service has only ten slots. It will be open until either ten slots fill or July 24th when the service closes, whichever comes first.
- A pro has emotional distance and objectivity to spot the real problem areas
- Critique partners mean well, but may have us ‘fixing’ stuff that isn’t broken while ignoring major red flag issues
- Writing partners often lack the skill level or the knowledge for what works and what doesn’t in YOUR genre
- Rejection letters don’t always mean the book is bad. Your time is valuable, so no need to waste it repairing a perfectly good story
What this SPECIAL includes:
- General line-edit and proofing along with a deep content edit and assessment of the sample
- Honest but kind feedback about problems and detailed suggestions/instructions for repairing any issues
- Truthful feedback about what you do well! YES! Do more of THAT!
***There is a ten business day turnaround beginning day after the submission received.
