Smarter writing, smarter book

Fiction editing & story coaching from Lisa Poisso

It's time to bring clarity and depth to your novel. Smarter writing, from concept to story to the words on the page—this is how to create a novel that resonates through the last 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.
