Introducing the Book Fairy Godmother Mentorship Program

In January 2018, I’ll be launching a new coaching/mentoring/critiquing event called the Book Fairy Godmother Mentorship Program. It’s a six month program that will run through the end of June.
Here’s what it will include-

A one hour one on one introductory planning meeting via Skype.
During this time I’ll get to know more about you and the book you’re planning to write. We’ll talk about setting up a writing schedule for you, iron out any initial problems and set in motion your plan to get your story written and completed.

Every week we’ll have a thirty minute meeting via Skype during which time we’ll have our progress report. We’ll talk about what’s working and what’s not and discuss your challenges and how I can help keep you on track.

Every month I’ll send you a checklist of things you’ll need to do and go through each step with you. As the months progress I’ll also go over what you should have done from the previous month’s checklist so we can keep tabs on your progress and should you be falling behind, how we can get you caught up.
We’ll gauge how things are going and if anything needs to be changed or tweaked.

Once your story is completed I’ll give you a full critique (I’ll also critique your synopsis too). This will be the usual in depth critique which will focus on all aspects of the story telling process, plot, characters, dialogue, POV etc. You’ll get feedback on what’s working and what needs improvement.

During the six month program you can e-mail me as often as you want and ask questions about any problems you’re having whether it be regarding your story or staying motivated.

As an added bonus you can pick two of my writing how to e-books and two writing classes of your choice.
There will also be a second bonus where you’ll be given access to my upcoming novel blueprint or freelance writing blueprint masterclass (your choice depending on if you’re working on fiction or non-fiction) that will be launched in March 2018.

As I want to give writers in this program lots of attention I’m limiting the debut launch of this program to the first five people who want to take part.
If you have any questions or want to learn more about this program you can contact me at

And for all you aspiring writers and maybe a few more established authors who need a gentle nudge to get more productive, beginning this Friday and then every first Friday of every month, step inside the Writer’s Room over at Coffeetime Romance. I’ll be writing a post about something writing related, tips, hints, you name it. This week’s focus… getting your writing schedule on course.

I’m in the process of setting up a monthly newsletter filled with writing tips and news so stay tuned for details about how you can sign up to receive it.
