Collaboration Toward Completion:
You may already know that you’ve had a great life – or it may be something you discover in the process of writing your personal story. Either way, creating a memoir is a powerful journey of discovery that is sure to unearth buried treasure and deepen your level of healing.
Wherever you are in the process, I can help you tell your story authentically in words that reflect your nature and energy. As your sounding board, guide, and editor, my intention is to support you in having a remarkable experience on your way to creating a finished product that exceeds your own best expectations.
If you haven’t yet begun – or are early in the process – I will work with you to determine voice, format, story arc and sequence. Once you have some pages written, the feedback and editing process will begin. And when you feel complete in the telling of your tale, I will edit it in earnest in the following manner:
1st edit – I will read through your manuscript and perform, as needed, superficial line edits and a more reader-friendly layout. I may do some on-line research to supplement my knowledge of something you mention in your memoir so as to guide you in enriching your description of it. I may offer questions and suggestions for you to consider. Then, I’ll transmit this version of the manuscript for your review and our further discussion. Once I have your changes, I’ll proceed with a 2nd, more in-depth edit on this revised draft.
2nd edit – Now I am able to refine the manuscript with a greater sense of the whole work. This refinement process could include –
3rd edit – Once I have your further changes, I will integrate them and polish the draft so that the readers’ eyes glide easily over the surface of the page while their minds and hearts readily absorb the depths and breadth of what you share. The finished manuscript will be a gift to the reader worthy of multiple re-readings and sharing widely with others.
I may also offer marketing suggestions to help you raise your book's visibility once it is published.
