FIRSTLY LET ME OUTLINE THE PROCESS OF CAPTURING YOUR STORY
To write your Memoir, E-Book, or Fiction-Non-Fiction story, you will be working with someone who knows how to ask the right questions. You will find it effortless to get started, stay on track, and you will be encouraged to get results. Samantha loves the World of Story. She owes her success for being a great listener, and that helps you make the connections you may have forgotten. She will draw you out gently and skillfully, helping you to see things you might have forgotten. As someone well versed in story structure and language (having written four published novels) Samantha will have you powerfully communicating and writing in your authentic voice.
Hi! So you have written your book and you want it edited and embellished professionally? No Problem.

Now, what do I do for a developmental edit?

All projects can be negotiated given that each project and scope of work varies, along with your time frame, and any necessary research, collaboration, etc. We can negotiate my fees to the extent of necessary Work and Time. These are only basic prices and services. Please remember my clients/authors have different degrees of writing and storytelling experience. I often suggest doing a 2-3 page sample for you to experience my work and for me to determine the scope of work involved.
