How long am I committed?
There's no mandatory committment. I recommend at least three months to get the full benefit of the editorial process. That gives me time to walk you through the entire story process from rough draft to content edits through rewriting and into line edits.
Will you tell me the truth about my story?
My mother probably wishes I was a bit less blunt and a bit less honest. My life would be a lot easier in some respects. But I would be doing you, as an author, a grave wrong by telling you a broken story was amazing or vice versa. I will tell you if your manuscript is market ready. But the good news is that if it's not, I'll have a good idea of what's going wrong with it and how you can fix it so you can sell it.
Do you give refunds?
If you don't feel you're getting value for your money, I will definitely refund your purchase price within the first 30 days.
What if I don't like to Skype?
I speak fluent introvert and non-techie. I'm happy to make a cell phone call, converse via email, Facebook chat/video, or Google+. Basically, whatever works for you.
How many of my stories will you read?
I can manage roughly 5,000 words per student every week. I am only one person after all. I do recommend you send me current manuscripts that you're actually working on instead of digging up an old trunk novel and passing it over in 5,000 word chunks. You'll benefit more from the actual process of creation if you use our time together to write and rewrite instead of look for affirmation on pieces you know aren't working.
Which genres do you read?
Any and all. I write, read, edit, and publish across genres from literary to mainstream including erotica.
Do I have to join the Facebook group?
Of course not.
