Take Your Publishing Career To The Next Level

Are you struggling with your novel?
Do you feel overwhelmed in the sea of craft and publishing information?
Have you ever wished someone would walk with you and guide you through this writing journey?

Don’t worry. You’re not alone and you’re in the right place. I can help.

In my own journey, I learned as much as I could on my own but working with mentors drove me to success faster. Having a mentor means security—the confidence that you can forge ahead knowing you’ve got a net to catch you when you fall and a hand to guide you gently in the right direction.

That’s what I now give to my mentees. I work with them to create the experience they want and need, to help them make their publishing dreams come true.

Mentorships Are Partnerships

I take on a limited number of mentees so I can give each my focus. I meet my clients where they are in their journey. If you’re just beginning a novel, I will brainstorm with you. If you’re querying agents, I will lead you through the process. If you’ve got a new book coming out, I will help you prepare.
To every mentor I bring:


Teaching about craft and publishing is one of my favorite parts of being an author. I LOVE brainstorming characters and plot points, making a book sing, and giving it the best push out into the world.


Each writer’s process is different, just as each publishing journey is unique. I work with my mentees to find the right pace for THEM, whether they’re just starting or have some experience.


It took me many years, over 100 rejections and working with mentors of my own to build my publishing career. If I can do it, so can you, and I’ll be here to hold your hand for as long as you need me.

What My Clients Say

I’ve been blessed to work with wonderful clients writing fantastic stories.
Here are a few things they’ve said about working with me:

Samantha approaches editing with the creative lens of an accomplished author and as someone intimately familiar with the publishing marketplace. Her notes are specific and so helpful along with kind. I’m grateful for her feedback as it has helped prepare my manuscript for submission!

Samantha’s editorial skills are amazing. Thank you for so many thoughtful insights, nudges, and suggestions that carried me forward.

Jonathan Sayer


Exclamation-point exceptional, that’s how I would describe Samantha’s edits and her critique. Her comments were wise, clear, and made sense in respect to the whole concept of the book.
