Why is this important?
Publishing is hard, no matter which path you take. The book industry is competitive, so it is important to make sure what you're putting out there (be it query materials to potential agents or a self-published book on Amazon) is of the highest quality possible. A coach can help you through this process and work with you to make sure your materials are the very best they can be.
Varies depending on which elements you are interested in, but for the full package, you can expect the total cost to be about $1600.
Knowledgeable, personable, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Kayla has the ability to make an otherwise complex and opaque task clear and manageable. She asks the right questions, elicits the right information, and provides feedback carefully, just enough to guide but not so much as to overwhelm. I don't use the word "coach" lightly when I say she's a natural coach. Highly recommend. ~ Anna Madorsky, literary fiction author
Working with Kayla truly turned my manuscript around in an entirely new and exciting direction. She was thoughtful and thorough with her revision ideas and truly cared about the story I wrote. She also gave me confidence and helped me immensely with the querying process and editing. The state of my manuscript today—having had more success than any of my previous manuscripts—is largely due to Kayla’s help. I am forever grateful. ~ Bri Williams, fantasy author
