Writing Advisor Service

Work with a professional Writing Advisor to perfect your manuscript. Our Writing Advisor Service can help you with any aspect of book-writing, whether you’re at the very beginning stage of drafting up an idea, stuck on plot, or starting to consider that final polish.

One of the hardest parts of being an author is learning how to write a good book. And not only that, but learning how to write a book that is engaging, innovative, and highly recommendable. What are the secrets behind writing a great book? By working with a supportive and experienced Writing Advisor, you can ensure that your book has the best chance of success.

In a nutshell

The Writing Advisor Service provides you with one-to-one tutoring on how to perfect your book, whether you're in the early planning stages or coming to the final edit.

There is no minimum contract, and you can use your Writing Advisor as and when you require them.

Why do we do this?

The market is over-saturated with poor-quality self-published books, and we want you to avoid falling into the trap of publishing before your manuscript is ready.

By learning how to write a book that is up to the highest quality it can be, you can feel confident in knowing that you're entering the world of publishing with a great deal of potential. This helps you ensure that you do not waste money publishing a book that isn't quite ready yet.

In order to do this, it's important for you to have editorial guidance and professional feedback from the earliest point in your writing. Whatever publishing avenue you hope to eventually go down, and whatever writing support you need until then, we’ll be glad to help.

How do we do this?

Whether you need a quick boost for a few weeks or support in writing your book more long-term, your Writing Advisor can provide guidance and advice in a number of ways. With our tailored approach to the service, you can ensure that you get the most out of your hours, in whichever way suits you best.

Some of the ways that they can help include:

  • read chapters and provide feedback
  • look at plot outlines
  • discuss specific characters or plot points with you
  • writing advice on areas such as world-building or character development
  • offering useful exercises, activities and/or prompts to get that inspiration going
  • help you self-edit, so that you can reduce any future costs of professional editing
  • provide help on specific areas, as requested by you, to help you address any particular issues with your manuscript that you face


I must say that having Sapphira as my Writing Advisor has helped me so much. I am a first time writer and found myself very conscious of what and how I wrote. Sapphira’s first feedback e-mail put me at ease straight away and helped give me the confidence I needed to believe in the world I was creating. She helped me see how changing the structures of some sentences could improve the text on the whole and also flagged up some consistency errors. I am truly grateful.
