NOVEL DRAFT Package (This can also be used for memoirs/short story collections and even self-help books!)
Are you lost on how to turn your draft into a published book? Are you too close to it? Do you need someone to read the whole thing and give you some suggestions–what is working and what is not? Margo can help! In this package, she will
Writing Coach Package
Writing coach sessions can be used to discuss writing career goals, hold yourself to a specific deadline, figure out where (and how) to submit your work, talk about your brand and marketing platform, create a marketing plan, or brainstorm plot ideas. For example, writers have used writing coach sessions to discuss a novel and stay on track with word count, to figure out how to market a book and follow through on these ideas, to discuss where to go next in a writing career, and more. These sessions currently cost $30 for a 30-min phone or Skype conversation and $50 for 60 minutes. If you purchase a writing-coach package, you receive a discount on the regular rate, and you can use the sessions at any time, where Margo’s schedule and yours coordinate. Margo will meet people in person if you live within 25-miles of her and are purchasing at least an hour at a time, and you would prefer in-person sessions. (She lives in St. Louis, MO). Packages do not expire.
Picture Book Package
“Just finished making all the excellent changes and corrections you recommended. You taught me so much through your notes, detailing not only what you were changing, but why. In several places where I somehow knew I wanted a different word, but just didn’t seem to be able to find it, you nailed it!” ~Marla Schachtel, author of The Life of a Dog Living in a Cat’s World
Do you have a picture book you need help with? For $50 (1000 words* or less), you will receive:
*Most publishers and literary agents are looking for picture books that are UNDER 1000 words, and typically even less than that. A picture book should have a “perfect marriage” between the text and the illustrations to tell the complete story. If you have over 1000 words, I am happy to work with you to get your word count down and discuss which parts of the story could easily be told with illustrations only.
Blogging/Website Help Package
If you need help setting up or maintaining a website, Margo can help with this! She uses GoDaddy for this site and margoldill.com and has extensive experience with Wordpress. She also uses Blogger to blog for WOW! Women On Writing. She is the former MO-SCBWI webmaster. Websites are a necessity for today’s business–whatever it is.
She can also help you come up with content for your blog/website and write it.
She is NOT a website designer, so these would be websites/blogs using the tools provided by WordPress, Blogger, Squarespace, Weebly, GoDaddy, or a similar program .
