Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What if my book isn't finished yet?
Don't worry, getting a first chapter critique is a great way to start because I can help flesh out your outline or story structure, so you can keep working without getting stuck. Buy now and I'll be here to help whenever you're ready.
Can I get a refund if I'm unhappy with my purchase?
Sure! Few other editors would give you a money-back guarantee, because they can't get back their time. But I'm not worried, because I've worked with hundreds of authors and the only times I've given refunds were when I was too busy or booked to edit their work. I always overdeliver and I'm truly one of the best.
But if you don't think so for any reason and aren't happy with my critique or comments, I'll refund you 100%.
Do I get a coaching call?
I’m an introvert with a sleep disorder, so scheduling coaching calls is absolutely not my favorite thing. But I also know it can be a fun, personal value-add and sometimes you just need to talk through your book ideas out loud to resolve them yourself or make new discoveries.
For the moment, I'm offering a 30-minute coaching call (as a bonus) for my $297 first chapter critique service, and TWO 30-minute calls for the longer editorial manuscript review (one before, one after).
I’ve previously charged $500 for an hour of coaching, so to get the 5000 words of critique + 30 minutes of my time for $297 is a pretty good deal. And getting a full book critique for $2997 $997 with two coaching calls… insane. But you’re worth it and I’m stretching out my comfort zone. It’s probably not something I’ll offer again.
Why should I hire you?
Honestly, I'm not really "for hire". I've never bothered with slick sales pages or websites, because I don't need to work that hard to get clients. If you don't know who I am already, this probably isn't for you. But if you are wondering what skills I bring to the table, or "PROOF" that I can actually do this - (I know how hard it is to vet editors!) - I'd check out some of my free resources. Most authors make repeatable mistakes that anybody can learn. It'll just take you longer.
PS. If you want credentials, I spent 10 years getting a PhD, am a USA Today and WSJ Bestselling author, and have been featured in CNN. But more importantly, I invest everything I earn into new/free tools for authors, so you can ask around about me, or check out the hundreds of raving reviews on my main self-publishing course.
