Writer Coaching - 30 min Skype call

35


35 per session - Virtual OK

Not sure what to do with your novel idea? Wondering how to get started? Maybe you've hit a plot snag. Or maybe you just want to pick the brain of a professional with a lot of experience. Wherever you are in your writing journey, I'm happy to be that person!

As a professional fiction editor for over a decade, an indie author, and a former publisher of my own ebook magazine, I have a lot of experience in most aspects of the book publishing industry. And what I don't know, I can usually direct you to someone who can help you or to a place where you can find that information on your own.

I will get on a Skype call with you and brainstorm your novel, give you writing advice, answer questions about writing, editing, or publishing, and basically help you in any way I can to help you become the writer/author you want to be :)

Note: This service is limited to 4 per month, because I have books to write! :D

Training & Qualifications


I hold an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction (so I am much more helpful to those interested in commercial fiction than those interested in literary fiction; I also know a good deal about non-fiction, however).
I've been a professional fiction editor since 2008.
I am an indie author.

Availability & Preferences


I work for myself, so my schedule is flexible. Let me know when works best for you :)

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I love the idea of people coming together to share strengths and mitigate weaknesses! I think we've lost our sense of community in the era of hyperconnectivity. I'm so happy to be here! :)

About Venessa Giunta

I'm a writer of weird things, an editrix extraordinaire, and a little bit of a nerd. The TV show Supernatural is one of my favorites (I'm a pretty dedicated viewer) and I was devastated when Sense8 wa...s cancelled (damn you, Netflix!). I run a small writers' group on Facebook called The Writing Tribe (feel free to join if you're serious about your writing :) ). I've been a professional fiction editor for more than a decade and in 2018 I finally pulled my own writing off the back burner and published 3 books (2 under a pen name). I'm planning on publishing 5 in 2019. :) Urban fantasy and horror are my typical genres, though I also throw in a lot of suspense, as well. As you can see, my life is immersed in writing :) I live in Atlanta, GA, with my husband -- also known as my muse -- and three cats who basically rule the house, but won't pay the mortgage. I've been called the kind of evil that inspires hugs.show more
