Novel Query Letter Workshop

Ready to establish a relationship with an American or Canadian agent? Better your odds of being asked for a manuscript sample or a view-in-full with a comprehensive, one-on-one query letter workshop. A good query is concise, professional and attention-grabbing - but an effective query also adheres to an accessible format and employs industry- specific language that demonstrates knowledge of both your potential audience and the potential of your own story. Learn how to invite an agent's curiosity with a 20-minute interactive workshop (delivered over Google Voice or email Q&A as preferred) and an in-depth line-edit of your query letter draft.

How does payment work?

At this time, I accept payment via Paypal. (You do not need to have a Paypal account in order to use the service.) You will be sent an invoice, which must be paid before work will be undertaken.

How long will it take to receive my edits? When will my Google Voice workshop take place?

Once a consultation has taken place and the service is paid for, both editorial work and Google Voice workshops are put in my work queue. For the former, your consultation will include a time estimate. For the latter, we will decide upon a mutually agreeable time during your consultation for the workshop to take place. 

I scheduled a Google Voice workshop with you last month but realized I'm not free during the time we agreed upon. What do I do? 

Google Voice workshops can be rescheduled at no charge if a minimum of 48 hours' notice is given before the workshop is scheduled to take place. If less than 48 hours' notice is given, a $10 rescheduling fee must be paid. No refunds are given if at the scheduled time of the workshop, the participant is a "no-show."
