Frequently Asked Questions
Will you critique my stories?
The short answer is yes.
The long answer is how you get access to me.
I'm in and out of the forums as much as I can, but there are hundreds of students and only one of me.
If you want a story critique, you'll have to go here:
Sign up for a manuscript critique. That will ensure that I can give your story the attention that it needs. Your success is important to me.
Can I email you?
The short answer is yes.
But again, I have hundreds of students, and while I try to get back to everyone as quickly as I can, if you have more than a quick question about how the course works or if you need feedback about your story or your career, you should consider signing up for either personalized coaching, small group critiquing, or a manuscript critique.
What if I want to work one-on-one with you?
That's my preferred way to work with students. It gives me a chance to understand your goals, your journey, and even your insecurities. I've been where you are -- struggling to sell stories that are immensely personal -- and looking for someone to show me the ropes of a complicated and overwhelming business.
I can only take a few more personal students. My schedule is filling up far more quickly than I ever imagined. But I'll read and critique your manuscripts, watch for markets & submission calls that fit your works-in-progress, help you submit, & hold you hand through the process.
If you're interested, head here:
I'm looking for a critique group, but I'd like your feedback as well. What do I do?
Why, join my small group critique sessions, of course!
Warning: this group is limited to six students so sign up now if you're interested. You don't want to end up on a waiting list with a story burning a hole in your proverbial pocket!
I run a small group critique session that exchanges manuscripts once a week. I throw in my feedback as well. You'll practice giving and receiving professional feedback just the way you're learning in this course. It's an invaluable skill to have as a professional writer.

What if I want to self-publish?
There's a course for that as well.

I'll walk you through the in's and out's of how to get your manuscript ready for Amazon, formatted, and uploaded. It's not as easy as it looks, but never fear, you can definitely do it.
What do I do when I finish this course?
Well, head to the next one!
