Sometimes you need to find someone to work with one on one.

At SavvyAuthors we have motivation groups and one on one mentoring with writing and publication experts.


Mentoring Groups

Our programs are  a 3-month individualized one on one program to guide authors through the process of finishing or polishing their target novel. You will schedule mutually convenient times to chat online and you will receive personal, private, specific feedback in writing.

Each mentor has a limited enrollment for 5 students.


  • Unlimited access via email for brainstorming, coaching, specific questions and regular check-ins
  • Regular private online chats in the Savvy Authors chatroom, phone or Skype (schedule and time to be mutually agreed on)
  • Reviews of your notes, outline and full draft with feedback targeted to take you to the next step with your story, tailored to your current goals
  • A writing schedule to complete your draft or edits with prompts to remind you of deadlines and regular check-ins to help keep you on track
  • Mini-lessons, articles, resources and recommended reading as appropriate
  • Includes coaching on the pitch and the synopsis
  • A coach who listens, doesn’t squash your writing style and who provides positive, constructive and helpful feedback to meet your goals

*** Please see individual mentors events for instructor specifics ***

Note: Mentoring program does not include line by line editing or proofreading, although I may make word choice suggestions or point out repeated grammar errors. Full read/in depth critique/edit of the finished manuscript is negotiable for an additional fee.

This program is not a workshop or training class but those elements may be present at the discretion of the mentor based on the needs of the students. Students should be prepared to engage in regular discussion with the mentor in order to get the best out of this experience.

My year in a SavvyAuthors’ mentoring program showed me where my particular writing issues were and gave me ways to address them!

Are you seeking a coach and mentor who listens? Doesn’t squash your writing style? And who provides positive, constructive feedback to meet your goals?

As a certified coach with a background in education and over a decade of working with writers, my goal is to offer you an individualized mentoring/coaching program to help guide you through the writing and publishing process. No part of your writing process is too small or too large for us to tackle together.

We will work as a team on the writing goals that you wish to accomplish during the three-month program.

I am as comfortable working with new writers as with those who have multiple publishing credits. I also read and write across multiple genres and have worked with writers who write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, historical fiction, horror, romance, etc.

The direction of the mentoring and coaching is founded on the goals you wish to accomplish. I am flexible, if the needs arises, in changing the mentoring and coaching to suit your needs and wants. You should come willing and able to work on your writing and be prepared for honest feedback.
