A few testimonials from satisfied writers

“Kim provided encouraging, yet constructive, feedback on my query letter and book proposal. She not only highlighted areas that needed improvement but provided ideas for solutions. She made a complicated process easy.” – Kristin Owens

“I had no idea where to focus when starting to write my book. I didn’t know what to do first and it was paralyzing. Kim’s advice about how to start writing my book proposal was informative, practical, and easy for me to follow. She gave me a step-by-step plan on where to begin and insight on the best way to get my book proposal ready. I really appreciated her willingness to answer all of my questions, big or small. She also shared great strategies for how to build my platform in the way that will best support my proposal. Thanks, Kim!” – Anna Lively

“I found Kim on the internet while researching how to write a book proposal for narrative non-fiction. I’m a complete novice to the process and needed in-depth consultation while I wrote my proposal. Kim has been absolutely fantastic. She’s both kind and thorough, and I feel like I’ve grown as a writer since working with her. Her suggestions have been on point, and by focusing on the arc of the proposal, she’s helped me reshape the arc of my narrative into something I’m far more proud of now. I highly recommend her services, and thank her for her thoughtful and intelligent guidance!”  – Heather Sommerlad

“Kim has been a tremendous help to me throughout my proposal process! Initially, I was inspired by her blog post that described the methodology she used when writing the proposal for her first book. Once I started writing and piecing together my own proposal, I knew she would be the perfect resource to provide feedback and insight. She is an accomplished author who knows how to take the reader on a journey and understands what agents and publishers are looking for.” – Christine G.
