Plotting Sessions

Fixing books one plot hole at a time.

Plotting Sessions

Content is the heart of your novel.

Are you feeling stuck with your story? Are your friends and family sick of you asking for help with your fictional world? Or only giving you unhelpful advice? Talking to an impartial editor is sometimes all the help you need. This is perfect for writers who are suffering from writer’s block or who want extra clarity in the story they are currently writing.  

    • Ask me anything (plot, characters, etc.) and get productive feedback
    • Organize and link existing ideas
    • Pinpoint where you are blocked and how to get past that – even if it means rewriting
    • Put our heads together to brainstorm new possibilities
    • Clarify the big-picture

How It Works

I will send you a questionnaire to get to know you and your story before we begin. I will also read up to 15 pages of your current WIP and/or a synopsis. We will sit down and discuss it via a conference call in detail. You can ask me anything, and I will ask you questions meant to inspire you.  

Rate: $75 for a 30-minute session OR $125 for a 60-minute session

If extra reading or conference calls are needed for your session, additional rates may apply.

I Can't Recommend Her Enough!

Casey is a godsend! I love working with her. She is always positive and fun and makes the editing process as painless and educational as possible. I always learn something new. Add to that the fact that she puts the pro in professional, and she is a dream. I can’t recommend her highly enough! 

Darynda Jones, New York Times Bestselling Author

Great Eye for Detail!

“I’m so thrilled to have had Casey work on a book bible for my Demonica series! It’s a long series and very complicated, and she has a great eye for detail, catching things I’d completely forgotten! I’d recommend Casey over and over. Thank you, Casey!”

Larissa Ione, New York Times Bestselling Author

Casey is Absolutely Brilliant!

“Finding the right developmental editor is vital to an author’s creative process. It’s a delicate skill that requires providing an influential critique while also giving critical feedback in a non-belittling way. There are not many editors out there who can do this, but Casey has mastered the skill.

Casey reviews manuscripts in a positive way that touches on the strengths of the story, while also pointing out the flaws in a constructive manner. Her notes always bolster my confidence in my writing and provide fantastic advice/direction on how to improve the story/plot. And her attention to detail is spot on. She’s absolutely brilliant, and I will definitely be working with her on my future projects.”

Lexi C. Foss, USA Today Bestselling Author

My Trusted Partner & Indispensable Resource!

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Casey on several projects, and have come to appreciate and depend upon her keen eye and unique insight. She’s the perfect combination of a devoted reader and a consummate professional, and her feedback consistently elevates the overall quality of my work as an author. From characterization to themes and plot, Casey is able to identify potential issues and make sound recommendations for improvement. She’s become my trusted partner and an indispensable resource, and I would highly recommend her services to writers at all levels of the game.” 

Cynthia St. Aubin, USA Today Bestselling Author

Plotting Sessions Are A MUST Before Revisions!

"I worked with Casey on a plotting session before diving into edits for my second draft. My goal was to strengthen my conflict and get an overall clearer direction for my plot, and I was very pleased with the result! Casey was able to pick up on plot issues and she gave me a great idea on how to tie my sub-plot and main plot together. You know when you get an idea and it rings so true, it's like it was always meant to be? That's how I felt with Casey. I'm pretty sure she saved me a couple of drafts. Highly recommend this as a pre-revision step!"

Camille Baker, Writer

Casey is a Joy to Work With!

"Casey is a joy to work with! She wrote the back cover copy for my debut novel and I couldn’t have found a better editor for the job. She is incisive, professional and also supportive and funny. The copy she created is perfect and she gave me the confidence to move forward. I can’t recommend her highly enough!”

Megan Steer, 2019 Debut Author

Always Going the Extra Mile!

“I love working with Casey! She is always available for a question or concern, always going the extra mile to make sure that I feel comfortable and confident in what we are doing. She has a great eye for details, both in grammar and plot details, and it’s nice to know that I have someone like her who has my back.” 

Annabelle HunterAuthor of Lark Davis & Barrow Bay Mysteries 

I feel really LUCKY to have found Casey!

"I feel really LUCKY to have found Casey. I wrote for many years in a box, then realized I needed an editorial partner to help me navigate the creative process. Casey has an incredible eye for detail, is sharply attuned to the material, and provided feedback above and beyond what I expected to receive. 

Her notes were spot-on (and funny!), pointing out elements of the story I'd missed in a positive, constructive manner. Her suggestions for revisions often included multiple ways to solve the issue, which was terribly beneficial.

I can't wait to work with her again. In fact, we're already scheduling future projects!"
