Finish your first draft

Every great novel starts with a blank page and an idea

You don’t have to write alone

We know that the process of writing a novel can get a little lonely, and that it’s all too easy to get stuck. Our goal is to provide you with the support and guidance you need to turn your ideas into a great novel. We’ve put together three writing packages to do just that.

Let’s make your first draft happen

No matter what stage you’re at with your novel or how much support you need, our in-house writing expert and book coach, Jenna, will be able to help.

  • Quick-Start Consultation: If you’re battling with writer’s block, trying to figure out where to start, or plagued by a question you need to discuss with a fiction expert, book a one-hour consultation for quick solutions to get you back on track.
  • Novel Roadmapping: This one-month roadmapping program will provide a comprehensive and tailor-made guide to planning and outlining your novel, to get you off to the best possible start.
  • Book Coaching: Take a look at our Book Coaching program if you want on-going guidance and support from an expert throughout the entire novel-writing process.
