Monthly Fiction Coaching

Monthly coaching for writers drafting a novel is a collaborative relationship built on trust and mutual respect. We work together wherever you are in your project—at the beginning, stuck in the middle, ready to tackle a major revise—and I tailor our work to meet you where you are and offer you the support, tough love, encouragement, and accountability you need.

The coaching includes two deadlines a month where you submit either exercises I’ve assigned or 25 pages of your work in progress, I do an in-depth review, and then we have a half-hour coaching call for each deadline.

The minimum commitment is three months.

$1,000 per month

Tell me about your project and let’s have a conversation.

Before we decide to work together, I’d like to get to know you and your work—and give you an opportunity to get to know me as well. The coaching relationship is personal. Not all coaches are right for all writers. If we’re not suited, through my Author Accelerator network I can help connect you with a coach who might be more of a fit. To get started, please complete the questionnaire at the link below.

“I had already researched the time period, gotten my facts in order, and drafted an entire middle grade historical novel. But as a first-time writer, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. Susanne’s experience in the publishing industry and her own success as a writer of multiple historical novels made her a perfect match for my niche. She helped me to tighten the story, create better scenes, and yet never lose my own voice. She is truthful, but kind, and has guided me chapter by chapter to create a more engaging story.”
