Consulting Services:

 

Words can save us. Words can put us in jeopardy.

Words can build a business or let it grow fallow.

Words can heal us. Even SAVE THE BAY  


But words don’t always come easily or when

you want them or how you want them. 


On a deadline?

Blocked?

Need a copywriter?  

Need a fresh mind to spin your big idea?

Have no time to do the research?

Pray for a wordsmith?

Kill for a silent writing partner?

Have to edit your article, your thesis, your

manuscript, your novel, your memoir,

your screenplay?

 


With thirty years experience at writing for every major network and cable company, Linda Bergman has the expertise and desire to help you reach YOUR audience. She can help you polish, rewrite, rework and SELL the project at hand.


Your writing SUCCESS is her passion!


Rates:


Whether it be a novel, a script, a memoir, a how-to book, a personal essay, a magazine article, a query letter, a short story or proposal -- there are a number of ways she can help you and depending on the depth of help you need, here’s how it breaks down financially:


Linda charges $6.00 a page to read and advise. Price can rise up to $8.00 per page depending on the density of the material. You will be notified by email or phone if, upon descending into your work, Linda decides the work load is greater than originally perceived. You will then have the option to agree to her continuing or she will stop work at your request.

 

Upon completion, you receive a marked copy of your original material with notations whenever Linda is pulled from the read. These notes are very helpful to a writer as you enter the rewrite phase. Suggestions are placed in the margins as well as in a separate document regarding the piece as a whole and your goal for the material.
