You need smart + insightful support to start + finish your book.

Women come to me at all different stages in their book writing…

…with a simple idea that needs to be developed into an outline,

…with a half finished manuscript that they’re struggling to complete,

…or with a strong draft that needs a big picture edit to ensure it makes the impact it’s meant to make.

 

At each of these points, working with of an experienced writing coach and developmental editor can mean the difference between months (or even years) of struggle and a finished manuscript that you can proudly share with the world.

I can’t recommend Parrish’s services highly enough! She went through my first-draft manuscript with so much care.  She took the time to listen to what I truly wanted and the new structure she’s given my book has helped me to find so much more clarity with my ideas and express them in a way that will reach my reader.  My book truly feels like a book now, instead of a jumble of concepts.  I’m ready to start on my second draft with confidence and even joy.

When I came to Parrish, I had self-published my book on a shoestring budget but it wasn’t organized in a way that made it digestible for the reader. Working with Parrish, I felt like my ideas, my manuscript and the heartfelt desires I had for my readers were all held so tenderly in her caring and capable hands. My book would not have such depth, clarity and heart if it weren’t for her.

I wanted my book to have a soul and be wildly useful. With spot-on insight and a keen eye, Parrish helped me to dig deeper and find the balance of expertise and vulnerability that I was seeking in my work. I felt an unbelievable sigh of relief when we began working together, knowing that my book would become the best version of itself with her guidance. When it was done, I knew Parrish had helped me make it honest, fun and powerful.

Parrish stood by me as I opened up my vulnerable space and listened to me when I had doubts. She re-assured me when I was confused and gave me space and time to unfold the truth in my work. I now understand what it means to write from my heart, thanks to her guidance. She’s the real deal when it came down to feedback – no fluff – told me like it was and always gave me a clear reason for her edits and suggestions. Every small celebration with me comforted my uncertainties and fed my soul with inspiration and motivation to continue. Parrish is truly one of a kind!
