Personalized Writing Mentorship
🎉Each slot runs one full calendar year from time of acceptance.
Some of you may not know that in order to stay sharp myself, I also do editing and other work for writers and authors. I’m currently accepting mentorship clients. This is a more in depth arrangement than simply hiring an editor. Or an outliner. Or having a friend to complain to about how your characters won’t listen to you.
I do deep developmental edits and story support. (And mental health support for the author… Haha.). This program is aimed toward the new or intermediate author, with a focus on self publishing. I also have experience submitting books to publishing houses. I am also willing to accept clients who are established authors looking for launch support, more than developmental support.
I have limited slots for this type of project. I will be taking on three people this year. I will help each person through two manuscripts from start to finish–outlining process through publishing. (Please note: I am not ghost writing or doing the work for you, I am supporting you, the writer, and guiding you through the process. Think of this is a mini college course, only I help you with your papers.)
I will provide editing services, outline support, story support, and be available throughout the week and most days on the weekend for consultation, but outsourced services to be considered beyond the cost of the mentorship services include:
Covers, formatting, beta readers, proof readers–I do not supply snacks unless you move into my building. (This is a funny. You do not have to move near me. But if you want to, I won’t stop you.) I can direct people toward resources I have mentioned (including snacks) but do not currently provide them myself. From time to time I will also recommend writing books to buy, borrow, or peruse from whatever source you tend to procure books. This is not a “course” I have designed, but me getting to know you, so if I say: Hey, check out this book, you should probably get the book and read it. I won’t cover the cost of that, but there are many places you can buy used books at a reasonable price online. Those are all the costs I can think of that might go above and beyond what I’ve listed.
✨You MUST be able to accept kind, constructive criticism for this process to be of value to you and your future writing career. ✨
**I am willing to accept mentorship clients who are not native English speakers, but feel it is important to note that I am, sadly, limited to English myself, so I will not be able to edit manuscripts in any other language.**
Further note: I am not a good candidate for poetry mentorship. Poetry is wonderful and I have many volumes on my own shelves, but I feel it needs a different skill set than the one I have to help someone truly flourish.
Cost for Mentorship Services
Price per mentorship slot for two books over the course of a year is $3,000.00 USD. In order to establish what works for an author, I feel going through the process twice with me would be helpful. Will possibly negotiate on the price, but I feel that the time investment on my behalf will merit the fee.
Series of Five Books
For those who wish to have help running a series for the first time, the same service over the course of five books and one year is $7,000.00 USD. I will only have two series slots during this coming year.
Multiple Mentorship Slots (More time spent with Ki hammering away at books.)
If you would like two of the (2) book slots, price is $5,000.00 USD. If you would like two of the (5) book slots, price is $13,000.00 USD.
Payment can be split. If you would like a slot, but can’t pay everything up front, please contact me and we can discuss arrangements.
Thank you! I will be accepting clients based on a first come, first serve basis. When my slots fill up I will create a wait list/2020 list. Thanks everyone!
