Item Description

Do you, or a friend or family member, have an a book idea that could use support and professional advice? I am a 16-year industry vet and has acquired and edited many memoir, narrative non-fiction, popular history, popular culture, and humor titles, as well as some literary and commercial fiction. https://www.penguin.com/publishers/dutton/

I'm offering to read up to 100 pages of a work-in-progress and meet for an hour to discuss next steps towards publication, including finding an agent, researching the best editors and publishing houses, or self-publishing if that's the best fit for your project.

I can help with any non-fiction genre (except for academic writing) and any commercial or literary fiction project. I love mysteries and thrillers, but can't help with romance, fantasy, or sci-fi. I can't offer specific agent recommendations or guarantee a book deal, of course, but I've helped many friends and family members find their way to a happy publication, and I'd love to do the same for you.
