You want your novel to be as good as it can be. On a par with the writers you admire.
And you know the only way to get from where you are to where you want to be is through the revision process.
And that's where many writers get stuck. Because we are too close to our writing.
We can't see the big picture.
When we open the manuscript we just end up fiddling with the sentences.
We're mired in the details
If that sounds familiar, Inspired Revision is for you.
The answer came when I discovered my superpowers as a developmental editor and book coach.
Now I help writers like you use and control your superpowers.
So you can rise above the words on the page and make your novel as good as it can be.
Because nothing breaks my heart like unfulfilled potential.
And nothing makes it soar like a powerful story, well told.
I believe compelling, insightful novels have the potential to knit our society together at a time when we are so divided.
But only IF they connect to readers. IF they keep us reading beyond the first few pages. IF they carry us through the messy middle. IF they fulfil their promises in the end.
Inspired Revision is how your novel claims and directs that power.

Coaching as you implement your inspired revision:
"I was struggling to understand how to move from a first draft to a second without getting totally overwhelmed. Now I've worked with you I feel very, very excited about writing my book again! I feel like I've finally got that 'hook' that always seemed to be missing. "
"You provided a sounding board where you were comfortably following complex points of plot, tone and characterisation, then feeding that back in a way that I could see for myself the significance of what I had told you."
I understand that choosing to invest in your work can feel like a big step. I know that it can feel easier to wait until you feel confident. But let me reassure you that this process is about meeting you where you are and walking alongside you whilst you tackle the self-doubt and uncertainty that comes with stretching yourself.
