PLEASE NOTE: I am currently booking outline services 1-2 months out, and full manuscripts in Q4 of 2023. Please keep those timelines in mind when considering my services! Thank you!
Hi! I'm Kate! I'm a freelance writer with seven years of experience, including three years’ experience ghostwriting, and 20 complete novels so far. I specialize in romance (LGBTQ and straight), with experience in paranormal, urban fantasy, high fantasy, and contemporary romance. My ghosted work consistently receives 5 star reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads.
Do you have a partial manuscript and don't know where to go? Is the story on-page not aligning with the story in your head? Do you have a great outline, but no time to write? Do you have no idea where to even begin?
I want to help make your dream project a reality! I want to understand your vision as closely as possible, and capture your voice on-page. I love working collaboratively to build an engaging and satisfying story with a detailed, consistent world and relatable, flawed characters.
My services are bespoke. The quote I give you will be completely unique to your project and your needs. Some of the services I offer are:
- The "Outline-outline": Starting at $400
I'll provide you with a worksheet intended to help you develop and enrich your characters, and the emotional arc of the story. You'll complete the worksheet, and then we'll have a one-hour video call going over it together and discussing the direction of your story.
- Reverse outlining: Starting at $2,000
My most popular service! If you're stuck in your manuscript, and the story simply isn't clicking, this may be what you need. I'll read your manuscript, then over four collaborative video calls, I'll develop a brand-new outline rooted in your existing material.
- Full manuscript ghostwriting: Starting at $12,000
Have an outline and need a great writer? Let's chat!
- Book doctoring: price variant
Do you have a partial or complete manuscript that needs some serious surgery? Book doctoring is a combination of reverse outlining, developmental editing, and ghostwriting. Each book has different needs, so each quote will be different.
Have a different budget? Shoot me a message - let's develop a collaboration that fits!
What I'm great at!
- Character development! When I'm revising or outlining, I always look at the emotional logic of the story. I move the plot forward through character choices, not just external circumstances.
- Plot structure! I have a deep knowledge of story beats and arcs, to ensure your narrative is satisfying to a reader, while still being uniquely yours.
- Enriching your imaginary world! I have a past life as a journalist! I know how to ask the question and guide the conversation to help deepen your characters and your world.
