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
Sapphira's advice is invaluable and inspirational. I had been working on my manuscript for the best part of a year, prior to joining the Writing Advisor Service, without making any real progress. However, thanks to the help Sapphira has provided I was able to complete the first draft of my manuscript within two months of joining. Her motivational tips really spurred me on to complete the first draft and she has been nothing but supportive throughout. The critique Sapphira has provided so far has been constructive and insightful, while at the same time allowing me to keep the creativity as I intended. Sapphira is a real credit to the team and I am greatly looking forward to working with her again in the near future.Duncan Thompson
