Practicum Volunteers

In order to apply for certification as a Fiction Book Coach through Author Accelerator’s Book Coach Certification Program, I have to complete three practicums with volunteer clients.

I'm seeking writers who are willing to let me practice on their projects – and on them. Don't worry! I'll be gentle!

I'm open to most genres, but I'm not a good fit for writers of horror or erotica.

Blueprint for a Book **No Longer Available - Practicum Complete**

  • Do you have an idea for a novel that you're dying to write, but haven't started working on yet? Or, have you scrapped an unsuccessful draft and want to start over?

  • Would you be willing to work through a series of exercises to lay the foundation for your book, allow me to provide feedback on them, and coach you on a video call?

  • Would you allow Author Accelerator’s editorial team to review my work on our project? (They would evaluate me, not your writing.)


If the answer is YES, please contact me and I’ll provide you with more details.

 

Manuscript Evaluation **No Longer Available - Practicum Complete**

  • Do you have a novel of at least 45 thousand words that you need a fresh pair of eyes on before you revise and reshape it?

  • Would you be willing to let me read your manuscript, and offer you an evaluation of the work, a developmental edit of the first two chapters, and a video coaching call?

  • Would you allow Author Accelerator’s editorial team to review my work? (They would evaluate me, not your writing.)

If the answer is YES, please contact me and I’ll provide you with more details.

Pitch Plan **No Longer Available - Practicum Underway**

  • Have you finished writing a novel and are ready to start looking for an agent?

  • Would you be willing to let me help you research potential agents, write a strong synopsis and query letter, and plan your pitch strategy?

  • Would you allow Author Accelerator's editorial team to review my work? (They would evaluate me, not your writing.)

If the answer is YES, please contact me. I’ll answer your questions and send you a client intake form to complete. Once you've submitted the form you may have to wait as long as a week for a response as I choose an applicant.


I appreciate the support. Thank you!
