“Katie took a big picture look at the novel’s plot, structure, and characters, providing me with professional insights that I wouldn’t be able to get from critique partners alone. Recommended!"

P.E. Robinson, Speculative Fiction Author

"Katie's attention to detail and the care with which she examines your work and provides feedback are exceptional. Working with Katie, you know  immediately that you have a coach who truly cares about your book and making it the very best it can be.  I was really impressed with her ability to hone in on key points and recognize patterns in my book, even when I couldn't see them myself."

Ricki Heller, Women's Fiction Writer and Book Coach 

"Katie's ability to see what's missing is such a huge asset in a book coach. She took my story and pointed out exactly where I needed to do more thinking and revising, leading me to several big breakthroughs in both my main character's emotional arc and in tightening up my plot. She's also a fantastic listener, and I left each of our calls feeling heard and full of excitement for my next steps."

Samantha Skal, Thriller Writer and Book Coach

"I hired Katie after completing a manuscript. Her input was transformative and far better than I could have dreamed of. Katie provided exactly what I needed for my book with her 'FIRM up your novel' system. I now have a fantastically improved outline and a lot of work to do but the project has also restored my love of writing and stories."

Simon Hazelden, Fantasy Writer

Step 2: FIRM Up Your Novel for Revision

A 5-deadline package focused on taking your novel from “needs work” all the way to the fourth draft by addressing the Foundational principle, Internal desire, Route, and Manuscript.

During this coaching package you will:

  • Define your goals and vision for this story.
  • Step back from the manuscript pages to clearly define the story you want to tell.
  • Take a critical look at how the foundational elements of your current manuscript draft are functioning.
  • Define what we call a “story guiding principle” as your North Star for this project.
  • Further develop your characters and their arcs.
  • Adjust your plot arc to better support your characters’ arcs.
  • Create a comprehensive outline to guide your post-package revision of the manuscript so that you can actualize your story’s potential.

This package includes:

  • Research-based workbook exercises designed to deepen your understanding of storytelling as you work on your manuscript.
  • Written feedback from your coach on each set of submitted exercises.
  • 7 hours of one-on-one coaching (via phone or video conferencing) to give you feedback, guidance, and support during each step. The coaching time is broken into two 2-hour calls and three 1-hour calls.

By the end of the package, you will have:

  • A deeper understanding of storytelling generally and in relation to this manuscript.
  • A clear and comprehensive outline to follow to bring your vision for the story to life.

This package costs $1,750 USD, which can be broken into 3 or 4 monthly payments depending on the pace you’d like to progress through the curriculum.
