GIVE YOUR STORY A GREAT WORKOUT
EVOKE EMOTION WITH CARDIO
Readers remember the stories that evoke a resounding emotional experience. Just as much sweat beaded on their foreheads as Sydney Rose Parnell’s when she discovered her family friend’s killer in Blood On The Tracks, by Barbara Nickless. Their hearts pounded with the betrayal Gabriel felt in Interference, by Amélie Antoine. These are the moments that stick with readers long after the book is closed. Newer authors sometimes struggle with getting that emotion on the page. They tell the reader, “he was heartbroken,” or don’t know how to dig much deeper than, “it felt like his heart burst into a million pieces.” Giving readers the emotional payoff they’re looking for will help you realize your dream of successfully publishing your novel. My passion is to help create powerful stories through development editing and coaching, so authors can reach those dreams.
Jacque helped me to enrich and clarify my novel. Working with her was an experience that brought out the best in me and my finished product. My book is a better read because of her input and I would work with her again.
I really appreciate Jacque’s professional input on my novel. She helped me develop my characters and the arc of my story. I really appreciate how she paid attention to all elements of my writing. Jacque also addressed plot holes, gaps and problematic characterization. I couldn’t have finished my novel without her.
My first book didn’t have the emotional impact I knew it needed for readers to love my characters as much as I did. Jacque’s coaching started with the foundational pieces of an engaging story, all the way through to the finer details so the heart of my story shined. Not only did it help me craft the love story of my dreams, I now have the tools and confidence to write a stronger first draft in less time for my next book.
