While You Were Out

Work with a Children's Book Author to improve your writing and increase the likelihood of publication.

Our service can help you reach your full potential as a writer. When you engage our services, a professional children's book author will act as your mentor. Author-Advisor team members have published novels, picture books, non-fiction and poetry. They will work with you to develop your manuscript, increasing your chance of getting your project published. Graduate credit is offered through Portland State University.

Here's What We Can Do!

  • Polish your manuscript before you send it to a publisher.
  • Edit extensively to bring out its full potential.
  • Advise you on current trends in publishing and how best to market your project.
  • Work with you from inception to completion of a manuscript to enhance its chance of success.

Here's How...

An Author-Advisor will critique your project, provide feedback, or discuss by:

  • E-mail
  • Instant messaging
  • Telephone
  • Skype phonecall*
  • Skype videocall*
  • Snail mail (US Postal Service)
  • Any combination of the above

*Skype is free software (very easily downloaded) that allows you to make free, high fidelity phone calls to anyone else with Skype or, if you wish, video calls. All you need to make this work is a high speed internet connection, and a microphone and camera connected to your computer.

Here's How We Charge...

  • One hour consults: $90
  • Two-and-a-half hour Picture Book consults: $180
  • Three-and-a-half hour Picture Book or Chapter Book consults: $225
  • Ten Hour Multi-Manuscript or In-Depth Manuscript Consult: $500
  • Thirty hour mentorships to guide a fledgling writer along the path to a finished book: $900

Additional Details...

  • For all consults longer than six hours, graduate level credit can be arranged through University of the Pacific.
  • If you wish, we can design a custom program to suit your specific needs.
  • Once work is started, there are no refunds. However, if you finish a project and still have time you've paid for, you may apply it to another project if you wish.
  • The fee for services may not be divided among instructors.

Here's What You Must Do...

  • Contact David Greenberg, Director of Children's Book Manuscript Advisors to discuss your options.
  • Discuss which Children's Book Manuscript Advisor would best serve as your mentor and which method of communication you prefer. You might want an advisor's written critique or you may work best by phone, instant messaging, or Skype video, or some mix of these.
  • David Greenberg will consult with the author/advisor on availability.
  • You will send payment for consultation services.
  • David Greenberg will direct the author to contact you.
