We offer two unique writing coach services for our clients: Writing Coach Monthly Service and the Writing Coach Package. These services are perfect for writers not sure how to get from first draft to polished manuscript.
As your writing coach, we can also help both keep you accountable and grow as a writer. Have you been working on your manuscript for a year? Two years? Ten years? Do you want to get it done with already? We’re here to help. We’ll give you deadlines for each edit to motivate you to finally finish your novel so it can go out into the world!
Whether you are a novice novelist or a veteran query-er wanting to finally find that project that will get agents and editors to scream yes, our writing coach service can help you.
Writing Coach: Monthly Service
Do you ever wish you could get professional feedback as you’re writing, to catch any potential problems as you go? Now you can!
Our monthly writing coach service offers writers a chance to be edited as they write by submitting up to 2,000 words per week for a flat monthly fee!
What You Get:
- 2,000 words critiqued per week, up to 8,000 words per month!
- Consistent feedback and support to help you work your way through a draft while learning to address your problem areas as you go.
- You’ll receive the same level of attention we offer our full manuscript clients, just in segments.
How Does It Work?
- You can either pick an editor, or one will be assigned to you.
- You and your editor will set up a weekly (for your 2,000 words to come in) or monthly submission day (for your 8,000 words to come in). This can change month to month as you desire.
- Your editor will be available for questions as they arise.
- Your editor will return your pages with constructive notes before you next submission day. The return time will be set up when you set up your submission days as well.
Work through your book a little at a time with your editor and come out the other side with a cleaner draft and more knowledge about how you work as a writer. We offer this service specifically for authors who might need the assistance of a great freelance editor but cannot afford the price of a full edit all at once.
Investment: $75 per month*
*A commitment of two months is required up front, but after that you can cancel any time with 5 days notice prior to the start of the next month.
Editors: Kim & Megan
(This is a special introductory price! It will go up to $85 for those who sign up for the service later than June of 2017.)
I had my manuscript edited by another service before and in comparison to what Kim did with my query, 10 pages, and synopsis I feel like I wasted money on the original edit.

Kim’s critique saved my book and kept me from getting stuck. So If you’re stuck too, then Kim is your AAA.

Megan is an incredibly talented editor!

Writing Coach Package
With our writing coach package, we will read over your manuscript a total of three times (full—from start to finish). We’ll take your manuscript from first draft to final, polished product. Each critique is tailored specifically for the writer and book’s need.
How Does It Work?
First Read: We will give you a comprehensive reader report—the same sort of reports editorial assistants and literary agent interns give to their bosses’ after reading manuscripts. In the reader report, we will break down what works and what doesn’t as well as give helpful tips on how to fix it. We will also break down its current marketability in the marketplace (be it for indie authors or authors interested in traditional publishing).
Second Read: We will go into more depth, giving a thorough editorial critique where we include a detailed editorial note along with some line editing throughout the manuscript.
Final Read: We will do a full line edit critique where we break everything down, once again, into an editorial critique but also do an extensive line edit in order to help you polish your project into perfection.
Between each edit, we will always be available to answer questions via email. But our writing service takes it a step further—after every critique, we will also schedule a 30 minute Skype chat so we can discuss the edits and manuscript in depth.
QUERY & SYNOPSIS
If you plan to go the traditional route, we will also help you craft the perfect query and synopsis.
Investment: Three payments of $833.33*
Editors: Kim & Megan
*one payment will be due at first read, one payment will be due at second read, and the final payment will be due before the third read.
It was great working with Kim Graff! She is professional and delivers as promised.
Belinda M Gordon, Adult Fantasy Romance & Women's Fiction Author
I especially loved Kim’s advice on what’ll work in the publishing market & how to tailor the MS to fit into the current market!
