How Does This Work?

Once you purchase your session, we'll email you within 2 business days to schedule a meeting date and time, and to chat about any specific requirements or requests you have. 

We'll need to receive your manuscript pages and your synopsis 5 days in advance of your meeting so that Léonicka has a chance to read them thoroughly.

At the time of your meeting, Léonicka will contact you by Skype to dive right in!

You'll walk away with excellent insight from a professional about how to write, improve, market and sell your book or other work!
