Diagnostic Editing

So, you’ve finished or almost finished your book.  That’s awesome!  You should be very proud of yourself, so many people don’t finish.  However, you may not be completely happy with the first draft.  Or maybe you have a collection of scenes that you need help organizing. Maybe some parts just aren’t working.  In that case, a Manuscript Diagnostic is probably just what you need.

Three Plans:

  • Story Grid Dignostic
  • Editor Holistic Read
  • Story Scene Session

  2. $750: 40,000 – 60,000 words

  4. $1150: 80,000 – 100,000 words

Story Scene Session ($350)

If your story is not yet fully realized, this is the perfect way to have it diagnosed. Come with a synopsis or scene list (even a partial list) and I’ll work through your events and ideas from the beginning to the end, and determine what’s working and what to tackle next.
