Jamie's Book Coaching Statement: 

Writing and revising a novel is often like wandering into the dark. I believe that the job of the book coach is to light the lampposts that will guide you through the process of completing your draft. I would like to help you accentuate what working in your manuscript while identifying areas that can be strengthened using a variety of craft tools. Character and conflict are the driving forces of narrative, so I enjoy focusing on the development of voice and challenging the characters.

Editing for clarity and conciseness are also important aspects of this process, and I will work to provide suggestions within the manuscript as well as editing references to keep your writing crisp and the story moving. It isn’t always easy to face critique on a manuscript that you’ve invested a lot into. However, I want to approach book coaching as a partnership between the writer and myself in which we honestly address what may be holding the manuscript back, and celebrate the development of your work.
