Editing: $75/hour with an established minimum depending on the length and depth of your project. I offer a few pages of complimentary edits so you can get a strong sense of what I do. (I am sensitive to the fact that the cost of editing adds up, especially for book-size projects. Please don’t let the rates prevent you from connecting with me. I am empathetic to financial realities, so let’s talk!)
Coaching: $75/ hour with an agreed upon minimum to be completed within a designated amount of time depending on your needs. Typically, a client will sign up for five hours to be completed within five weeks.
A reasonable timeframe will be discussed at the beginning of our work together. Timeframes are essential to the writing and editing process. Accountability, consistency and dedication are key to progressing, flourishing and evolving as a writer.
Please call for a half hour complimentary consultation. It is no small decision choosing an editor or coach. If we decide we are the right fit, I will give 110% to you and your project.
(There is a half hour charge for any non-emergent cancellations or forgotten one-hour phone or Skype session if I am not notified 24 hours prior. All payments are to be made in advance and are non-refundable)
“Leslie aims toward a seamless, deeper narrative. Her suggestions, editing and coaching are crucial. She sees the missing shades. Likewise she sees the border outlines. She sees the panorama from atop a 110 story building or a mountain top, and the detail of laying on the grass and inspecting just one square foot. I appreciate her immensely and am guided continuously by her wisdom, precision, and skill.” –Mark Anthony, aspiring novelist
