Query Letter Examination - ( $49 )

I will prepare an in-depth review of your query letter for any grammar or other issues.  Remember – this is the ultimate representation of your writing to publishers and agents – it’s imperative to make it as clear, concise, and sharp as it can possibly be.

Query Letter Drafting ($97)

If you’re having trouble starting your query letter, or if you haven’t gotten positive responses to the query letters you’ve written, I will take on the task and draft the query letter for you.  If you’d rather concentrate on your manuscript, let me craft an amazing query letter for it!  Remember – copy and paste doesn’t work with query letters – when querying more than one agent craft letters that are specific to each agent!  Also, this price only includes the letter portion – not the summary of your manuscript.

First Page First-Aid - ( $97 )

I can formulate an in-depth review of the first page of your novel for any grammar, hook, story, or other issues.  Many publishers and agents only ask for a first page of your manuscript, so nailing the first page is essential.

Skype call to prep for Agent Meeting - ( $97 )

If you have a meeting with an agent to pitch your book, I will help you prepare your statement and get rid of those nerves.  Writing conferences are excellent venues to meet agents who want your book – so don’t be scared to sign up for that time slot with them!  I can work with you for a whole hour to perfect your pitch and get you ready!

Author Bio Blurb - ( $147 )

If you have trouble talking about yourself, or simply don’t know what to say for your “author’s bio”, I will form a creative biography for you.

Back Cover Copy - ( $147 )

The namesake of my company.  It’s what I love to do.

Writing a summary of your novel may seem like telling someone all about your child in 30 seconds.  Seems nearly impossible.  However, I can draft some fantastic “back cover copy” for your manuscript.  Then you can use this copy on your website, your Amazon summary, your social media posts, and of course, the back cover.

Back Cover Copy & Author Bio Blurb - ( $197 )

Combine the two services above and I’ll prepare both your summary and your bio in one package.

Query Letter Synopsis - ( $249 )

Query letters require a longer summary of your story – anywhere from 3 paragraphs to 2 pages.  Essentially, it’s longer than back cover copy, but not as long as your entire plot outline.  I can help create an entire summary of your book that helps agents fight over your book.

First Chapter First-Aid - ( $349 )

If an agent has requested the first chapter of your book, I will prepare an extensive review of it before you send it off.  I can help you perfect your prose by giving you basic grammar edits as well as any story flaws, consistency problems, or issues with your hook.

From Daydream To First Draft Writing Course - ( $997 )

Writer Stephen Koch says there are only two rules to writing a first draft: Do it, and do it quickly.  In this 12-week course, I will take you from idea to rough first draft.  Together, we will go through your Strategy, Exposition, Tension, Layering Plot, and Unraveling the Plot so you can soon have around 36,000 words to work with in your next draft.  I will email the week’s lesson on Monday, and we will have a coaching call during the week to help you keep on track and take on any issues that are foolish enough to take us on!

Big Bad Beta Review - ( $1,997 )

If your masterpiece is complete and you need a professional beta review, I can quickly prepare an extensive review of your themes, characters, and plot. I will also identify any consistency problems, cause and effect issues, speaker attributions, or sentence structure difficulties prior to sending your work out to agents.

In short, I can help you perfect your prose.

Kassner Koaching

So, maybe you’ve already started your novel and you don’t need my From Daydream To First Draft writing course, but you’re still struggling to finish your draft and need coaching to reach your goal.  Each week we will have a one-hour phone call to discuss your work-in-progress and what will help you get “unstuck”.  Aside from the phone call, my Koaching clients get their emails answered in a priority manner.
