Why is Athena the right Book Coach?

After publishing six books, five independently and one traditionally, and learning far too many steps along the way the hard way, it is now my passion to help writers navigate the ever-changing publishing landscape and avoid pitfalls and costly mistakes.

As a professionally trained Book Coach, I bring my experience as an international bestselling and multi-award winning author to aspiring authors through flexible one-to-one coaching packages as well as courses, retreats and workshops that aim to inspire and empower writers for success in publishing.

I am the International bestselling author of the multi-award winning Beyond the Grave paranormal romance series The Seer’s Daughter, The Alchemist’s Son, Girl Unseen, When Darkness Follows and the romantic thrillers Desperate and The Scream Behind Her Smile.

Manuscript Assessment
Developmental Edit

Developmental edit that examines areas such as its idea, flow, layout, structure and sequence of chapters.
Includes feedback on whether it effectively delivers on your book’s core message, goals and purpose. Are there any parts of your book that are unclear? unnecessary? Need to be expanded on? Too much detail? Does it ramble in parts? Is it too technical – it’s not a report. And much more!

Receive a written summary on the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript. In-line comments to help you identify references made in the edit letter. I may mark some grammar, spelling and typos, but this is not the purpose of a developmental edit.

I look at its organisation and whether it effectively delivers on your message and book’s purpose.

**Please note: This is not a copy-edit or line edit of your manuscript.

60-min phone or Zoom coaching session to discuss my feedback on your work and answer any questions you may have.


Outcome:

  • You’ll feel confident about what needs to be done to make your book the best it can be.
  • You’ll understand what you need to do to improve your manuscript, which parts need strengthening and which parts to cut.
  • You’ll have a solid vision on where your book doesn’t deliver on your book’s message and purpose so that your finished book delivers on its promise.
  • Clear understanding of what is necessary to move toward your publication goals.
