Would you like to write a novel, but you can’t get started or got stuck somewhere? Do you have lots of ideas, but don’t know how to organize them? Are you enthusiastic about writing a book?
I had an epiphany. Since I’m having so much success at helping some people improve their writing, I thought, Why don’t I become a writing coach?
Christa wrote after she received my notes about her short story, “Thanks for the advice, Patty. I love what you did with the beginning. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. You're right about the names too. I'll work on that.”
When people show me their work, I have great ideas about how to improve it because I have years of experience writing and learning from the editor’s comments. Every novel I’ve published has been edited by a developmental editor, a copy editor and a proofreader. Each time, I read through my book making the corrections, and finding a few more errors of my own.
I know how to start a story and to perfect that important first chapter. I know how to get to the next chapter and on to the end. I’m willing to work with you to get that novel finally out of your head and onto a computer screen.
I won’t be charging the usual high rates because, of course, I’m just starting out coaching, so we can work out the hourly rate. I have a degree in English Literature, ten years writing 9 novels and 2 non-fiction, and I promise to give the singular attention you need to help you achieve your goal.
There are lots of “methods” out there about how to write a novel, and I have read them all, but I think every author is unique and needs individual attention. Each author has their own writing style and each needs specific advice.
For free, you can send me your outline, first chapter, whatever you’ve written, and I will evaluate it for you. After you’ve reviewed my suggestions, we can discuss working together.
And if I coach you, you will have access to a developmental editor, copy editor, proofreader, formatter and cover designer. All these people are professionals with years of experience, and they are the best in their fields.

The third book in the Coma Kids series (Through the Sphere) will be published soon, and then a 3-ebook-box-set will be available. Anyone fascinated?
Have a great day,
