Make books better.
Get book coaching. Unleash your storytelling.

Authors and writers create at the Workshop. Whether you’re ready for editing, need professional services as an indie author, or are just starting out to improve your writing craft or your book, I’m here to help. I’m the general contractor for your book.

  • Editing manuscripts, a synopsis or query letter, plus agent research.
  • Book coaching for story development and improving craft, and accountability
  • Monthly workshop groups to create new writing and form creative practices to finish work

Editing polishes books for submission to agents and editors, or for indie publication. Coaching lifts writing skills and keeps you writing. Group meetings build community and teach you how to connect with readers.

The training videos and blog articles here show you how to polish and develop writing. The lessons flow from 40 years of publishing industry experience. It’s refreshed by everyday work with authors like you.

Make your book the best it can be. Get personal editing with professional results.

— Ron Seybold, Director
