Coaching and Other Services for Writers

Book Coaching Services for Authors | Developmental Editing | Copyediting and Proofreading


Standard coaching services, $100 per week. Our standard coaching components are weekly email check-ins, weekly review of work in progress (a chapter or up to 5,000 words), and weekly video meetings to speak about your work. We’re your accountability partner. We help keep you on track and motivated, and we’re in your corner if you encounter any difficulties writing and publishing your book.

Manuscript evaluation, $500 up to 50,000 words, $100 per 10,000 words after. A review of structure, organization, style, and use of language. We’ll make edits and comments on your document, plus give you a three to five page report with specific suggestions on ways to strengthen the manuscript.

Developmental editing, $.06 per word. An in-depth evaluation and edit of your manuscript. After we evaluate the manuscript, we have a video call to discuss your work and decide on how the developmental edit will proceed. We deliver final documents, plus a three to five page report with further comments and any other suggestions we have on ways to strengthen the manuscript.

Copyediting and Proofreading, $.01 to $0.03 per word. Erika will focus line-by-line on grammar, punctuation, spelling, and consistency. This is a crucial and valuable step to get your manuscript ready for publication. Check out more details on E.S. Editing Services.

"I'm not sure I can express how invaluable working with Erika and Jon on my first self-published book has been... Both were encouraging, knowledgeable and highly skilled and together walked me through the entire process and helped me create something I was proud to publish."
