DISCOVERY DAY

Margot travels to an author - or meets virtually - and, for four to six hours, over one or two days, works with the author to identify the book's target reader, understand the reader's need, and identify the author's fresh solution to meet that need. 

Together we brainstorm content, outline the book, and create a chapter map to guide the writer when he or she sits  down to write chapters.

*The writer who will likely benefit from this service is one who has secured a robust contract with a traditional publisher. This author has a strong platform and can reasonably expect to sell a lot of books. Or, she is an author who is planning to invest time, money, and energy into self-publishing and wants to create the best possible book.
