Now Taking On Memoir Students

Hi all, I’m interrupting Mark Twain month briefly for a quick announcement:

Starting in November I am going to be taking on students who want to write memoir, or are in the process and need feedback, or who just want someone to read for them and give suggestions on what works and what doesn’t.

If you are one of these fine folks, please contact me and let’s talk about how I can help. All work will be done one-on-one so I can really give you and your work my attention.

When we talk I’ll tell you more about what I can offer you. Today, just so I’m clear about what I am not offering. 

You’re not buying praise. If you want to write, you don’t want an editor who simply says “attaboy/girl!”

You’re not buying publication. I’m not a portal to anything. Having a better book improves your chances at publication, but guarantees nothing.

So let me know. I’m excited to work with you and the early response to this has been great.

    I wish I was working on something – this is such a generous and honest offer. However, I do want to point out – don’t you already have, like 50 jobs??

      It’s not generous. I’ll be charging an arm and a leg! It’s super greedy and selfish!

    Ugh! If only I had that memoir finished – but finding it so hard since I am still alive and the story never ends!!
