I am extremely happy with my decision to work with Ascent, even though the financial commitment gave me a bit of hesitation. Then I realized I needed to make writing my book the focus for this point of my life, and I shifted money from my small vacations account. I realized that I thought nothing of spending a lot of money on a trip that would be over in a week or so... and instead I needed to invest in myself and my creative aspirations.

1-Hour Consultations - Aftercare Consultations

$175/ hour,   1-hour minimum

If you are not currently a full-time ASCENT client or if you are an ASCENT client who has completed your Guided Writing Program this service is for you.

1-Hour Consultations can help you: determine whether your idea is publishable; how to focus your idea for a definite publishing genre and audience; whether you should pursue a traditional or self-publishing path; and answer other early decision-making questions.

Aftercare Consultations can help you: evaluate agent's and publisher's agreements; evaluate or develop self-publishing, marketing and promotional plans; determine whether your website is a viable author's site; create a plan for future writing and publishing ventures.

Manuscript Evaluation

Manuscript Evaluation can help you: determine the publishability of your work now or its further development needs; important audience/ product development needs (like titling; audience trigger words, etc.); a potential publishing path. Cost of a review is based on 12-pt type, double-spaced page count.
