Take Your Book from Your Head…to Your Hands!


Congratulations! You’ve completed your book…or you’re still in the process of finishing it, but something just doesn’t feel right about it. Like any other author, you need a critical eye to review your manuscript and provide constructive feedback on how to improve your reader’s experience, enhance its appeal to publishers, or navigate through self-publishing.


Why You Need a Consultation


  • Is your book well organized and structured effectively?

  • Is your writing clear and concise? Could it be less redundant?

  • Does the first line of your book immediately capture your reader’s attention?

  • Does your book end with a strong and compelling conclusion?

  • Could content be added or removed to improve the quality of your manuscript?

  • Are your characters well developed and consistent throughout the manuscript?

  • Does your self-help book connect with your target audience?

  • Does your memoir have an effective narrative arc that is urgent and engaging?

  • Is your book marketable?

  • Do you have any knowledge of the publishing industry?


If any of these thoughts (or others) have crossed your mind, we have the answers for you. Our authors, editors, and publishing consultants can identify the issues that are hindering your book’s effectiveness and provide you with specific guidance on how to elevate your manuscript to publishing standards.


Together, we’ll discuss your goals for your writing career and for your specific project(s). Our writing consultants will work with you to improve your writing and shape your writing process. After assessing your work, you will be provided honest, constructive feedback, and we’ll create a detailed plan to help you achieve your goals. Black Eden Academy is here to support you!


If you don’t have a piece of writing to work on yet, come talk to us anyway. We are happy to be a sounding board for your ideas, to provide advice on writing processes, and to help you find resources that you can use on your own time.


Here’s What You’ll Get


We offer feedback on all aspects of your manuscript, from small errors down to substantive structural or content concerns. Your consultant will provide a detailed consultation on:


  • Structure, pace, and flow

  • Narrative arc and plot devices

  • Cohesiveness

  • Positioning and your target audience

  • Character development

  • Repetition and redundancy

  • Central message and themes

  • Tone, style, and voice

  • Quality of the writing and the book’s readability

  • Marketability

  • Any other issue related to the quality of the book and its publishing prospects


We are available to discuss all aspects of your project with you, including planning, preparation, concept generation, organization, development, style, tone, writing, editing, formatting, publishing, and more! We not only identify various issues and concerns, but we also provide specific instructions on how to resolve them.


Afterward, we’ll send you a recording of our conversation so you can review it anytime you want. That way, you don’t have to get distracted by taking notes while we’re talking.


Please note: Consultations generally take place by phone or Skype, but can also include in-person meetings (if within the Bay Area) or just written feedback.


This could be just the breakthrough you need to get your book completed and you on the road to being a published author!


If you’re eager to learn more about the world of writing, but don’t have time to sift through unreliable websites and outdated guidebooks, we’re happy to connect. But, it’s up to you. If you got questions, we’d love to help! It’s simple…to book a consultation today, just schedule a date and time. We look forward to hearing from you and about your writing goals.
