Mentoring Help for the structure of your non-fiction

Even if you feel you are an expert in your own field or hobby interest, you may find it very useful to have someone to consult with over the structure you will use.

Where will you start?

What style of chapter headings will you use?

How do you best break up the body of knowledge you want to impart?

Do you include charts, illustrations, photos?

Are there exercises or self-tests for the reader to perform?

Do you do a chapter summary at the end of each chapter?

What tone will you use - scholarly, light and friendly, humorous?

Does your tome require footnotes, referencing and a bibliography?

By asking some pertinent questions, I can guide you through some of the difficult decisions and have a good framework and narration style set up for your work.  You can then either proceed alone or take the total mentoring package. At $99, the cost of this Structural mentoring Package is not great to access such practical professional help. Thereafter, if you enjoy working with me and find what I do useful, you can work chapter-by-chapter with me as your writing coach.  Again, the cost is affordable - downright cheap: $7 per 1000 words.
