Coaching Packages

Prep for Success

Have an idea but aren’t sure where to begin? Don’t let the blank page intimidate you or, just as challenging, allow too many ideas to dilute your story.

Using the Author Accelerator Blueprint for a Book process we will work together to nail down the bones and soul of your book BEFORE you start writing. Whether you are a pantser or a plotter, this tool will set you up for success as you write forward in your draft while offering flexibility for the magic of your story to develop. At the end of this package, you will have a clearer idea of your story, a path forward, and a solid outline to begin drafting.

This package includes:

  • Six deadlines (to take place over 6-8 weeks) of a series of Blueprint exercises
  • In document feedback on each submission
  • Three 1 hour coaching calls to discuss feedback and brainstorm when necessary
  • Call recording so you can rewatch as many times as you need/want
  • Ongoing email support during package duration

Investment: $800 for 6 deadlines, must be completed within 8 weeks*

* Writers who commit to one-on-one coaching after completing a Prep for Success package will receive a $100 discount on the first three months of their coaching package

Manuscript Evaluation

But before you start pitching to agents or publishers or pull the self-publishing trigger, have a professional manuscript evaluation done to evaluate character, plot and pacing, tension, structure, and voice. At the completion of your evaluation, you will have a clearer picture of what works and what doesn’t in your manuscript, where to focus revision efforts, and be armed with a revision plan to take your manuscript to the next level.

This package includes:

  • Submission of your full manuscript
  • 5-page editorial letter
  • In document comments
  • Suggested next steps for your revision
  • 1 hour coaching call to discuss feedback and next steps

What it’s Like to Work with Me


Monica’s evaluation of my manuscript was comprehensive and detailed–with specific advice on how to approach revisions. Her feedback really resonated with me as far as areas that needed improvement. With her suggestions and support with brainstorming, I was able to make my manuscript stronger on many fronts.

Claudia Armann, Writer



It was great to work with Monica. She understood the story I was trying to tell. I knew there were things that weren’t working but couldn’t figure out what they were. Monica cut through my confusion, clarified the genre, and showed me exactly where the story needed shoring up. She was patient, encouraging, and honest. After talking with her, I was excited to work on my novel and make it stronger!
