It's time to bring clarity and depth to your novel—smarter writing, from concept to story to the words on the page.

If you'll be pitching your book to an agent, I'll help you tune your manuscript to publishing industry standards and expectations for your genre. If you plan to self-publish, I’ll help you figure out who your readers are and how to write a story that connects.

This is your book, but better. Your writing, but fresher.

Get Started

  • "(Lisa's) the real deal. Simply awesome. In the last six months, I have learned so much. And more than that, the voice inside my head has changed her tune. Now I hear, 'You're going to do this.'"—Emile Horne

  • "You need a great and wonderful editor to enhance and embolden the story; I found that with Lisa."—Troy Christensen

  • "An enormous thank-you to Lisa Poisso, who not only provided a masterful editorial review and line edit but taught me the art and science of storytelling. … So much more than I ever expected. ... This is so helpful because by this point I’ve boxed my story and closed it up so tight in my head I have a hard time reopening it for fresh ideas."—Shanon Hunt
