Coaching:   $75/ hour with an agreed upon minimum to be completed within a designated amount of time that we decide on together. Typically, a client will sign up for five hours that is completed within five weeks (I am sensitive to financial challenges, so let’s talk and see if we can make this happen for you).

Editing:    $75/hour (with a ten hour minimum for manuscripts) 

I offer a complimentary five pages of editing and/or feedback for your book so you can get a strong sense of how I work. This gives us the opportunity to know that we are a good match for each other.  Minimums vary depending on length and depth of the manuscript or project.
A mutually agreed upon, reasonable timeframe will be determined at the beginning of our journey together.

Timeframes are essential to the writing process. Accountability, consistency and dedication are key to progressing, flourishing and evolving as a writer.

Please call for a 30 minute complimentary consultation. It is no small decision choosing a writing coach and/or an editor.  If we decide we are a good fit, know that I will give 110% to you and your project and am honored beyond measure to be entrusted with your writing.

I look forward to hearing from you!


“I can’t say enough about how good an editor and writing coach Leslie is.  I had her review the first chapter of my debut novel,  A Thing with Feathers. Leslie caught many things in my manuscript that other more well-known and more highly compensated editors entirely missed!”
