Nonfiction Book Concept Review

Before you begin writing your book or proposal, you can send me your concept for review and advice, and I'll offer written feedback via email. This can potentially save you time and frustration—so that you don't develop a book proposal for a concept that's not likely to be viable or salable. You pay upfront for this service ($200) by using the form below; I am happy to answer your follow-up questions via email. By the end of our exchange you will have concrete next steps or a direction—and sometimes that direction is to abandon the project or consider self-publishing.

I will confirm receipt of your submission within 1 business day; in most cases I will send feedback within 5 business days via email. If you have questions about this service or how it works (or if you have problems with the submission form below), please email me or use my contact form.

This service does not include a phone call.

  • Price: $200.00
    Reminder: A nonfiction concept review includes emailed feedback only. It does not include a phone call or live conversation.
  • Your payment is being made on a secure site.

I took your book proposal course last summer and want to let you know that I'm sitting here right now reading a contract from an agent—all thanks to you!

Just wanted to share the good news that my book, Running with Raven, came out today from Kensington Press. Thanks for your guidance in getting me here.
