You’re wildly creative. But you’re aching for another set of eyes. You have questions, lots of them. About writing, publishing, and finding your literary love match with an agent or publisher (or both!). And what about your hook, query, book summary (if you have them), and overall publishing plan—do they make sense? Are you close? Is your writing strong enough? Let’s dig in.
I live for listening to your wild (or not yet wild enough) imagings and giving you my best advice from a gal who’s written multiple New York Times bestsellers, proposals that landed 6- & 7-figure book deals, won all sorts of awards, and introduced over 60 writers to their lit agents. Let me help you gain the confidence to know if you’re on the right track or can rock it better with a pivot.
Send me your samples, burning questions, social media links, website URLs, whatever you’ve got, even if only your heart on your sleeve. I’ll dig in for 45 minutes before our phone or Zoom call (your choice), and we’ll put our heads together for another 45 min to see what magic transpires. (Ever heard that two heads are better than one? Yep!) I’ll send you the recording, and you can refer to it again and again. If you have nothing for me to review, we’ll start with a fun jam-session call and go from there.
It’s hard to explain the magic that awaits. Everyone’s path and project is unique. But it’s always helpful. I’m obsessed with books and shortcutting your process from Idea to Done to Sold, for helping you navigate the shortest distance between where you are and where you long to be. My instincts are fierce, my experience decades in the making, and my results more than I ever dared to dream.
For further support, I’ll send you a lengthy PDF of my favorite Resources, with connections to top-level copy editors, writing coaches, ghostwriters, speaking trainers, videographers, photographers, you name it! Everyone needs a Dream Team. Your readers are praying for you to show up as much as you’re praying for them. Let’s get you ready already. xo

PPS. Matchmaking writers with literary agents is one of my favorite things, but it’s hecka time-consuming, and therefore reserved for writing retreat clients.
“… I had spent months talking to branding people, coaches, and entrepreneurs, and I felt so lost. But after my one-on-one with Linda, I realized I needed to talk to a REAL WRITER who GETS writers. And not just any real writer who gets writers–HER! Linda’s insight was an extraordinary gift that will reverberate for years to come …”
Liz Kimball, creative visionary coach. Tedx Speaker. Founder of The COLLECTIVE (see full testimonial at BookProposalMagic.com)
“My book was stuck at a crossroads when I booked a consultation with Linda. I’d heard tell of Linda’s legendary instincts, and they weren’t kidding. I ended our session with a clear path forward, confidence in the new direction, and excited to get going. Like any great therapist, Linda makes you feel like you’re coming up with the ideas yourself, even though she’s a total genie. Could we maybe find a way to bottle her intuition and keep it on our desks?”
Alice Williams, journalist, author of Would It Kill You To Say Please?
“I, like Linda, craft book proposals for others (as well as author my own titles). When I’m too close to my work, I call Linda. In a few short hours with my latest proposal, she zeroed in and suggested edits/additions that radically upped my game. Within days, I’d signed with one of the biggest agents in the industry. Days later, I had a six-figure deal with Penguin’s Portfolio imprint, one of the top business imprints in the country. These results were astonishing to me. I couldn’t be more thrilled or appreciative to have Linda (with her quick instincts, generous heart, and big talent) in my tribe.”
Michael Ellsberg, Forbes.com columnist, and author of The Education of Millionaires: It’s Not What You Think and It’s Not Too Late (Portfolio/Penguin)
