Hi, I’m Tanya!
I'm a book editor, writing coach, translator, literary omnivore, and editing instructor. I've been in publishing for about 20 years, and have worked on all kinds of cool books. These days, I mostly work on fiction, memoir, poetry, interactive literature, and graphic novels.
In my courses, I share what I've learned over the years—from specific genre knowledge to business tips and tricks. Check them out and see if they're right for you!
All these courses have moved to a new platform
Working with Indie Authors
Find Clients. Understand Their Needs. Work Better Together.
You'll come out of this interactive course with an understanding of what indie authors need from you, some new ideas for business practices and marketing, and a bunch of templates you can use to make your work even more efficient.
This interactive course is a deep dive into memoir.
It will help you better understand memoir and its readers' expectations. It will give you tools and techniques to help you figure out what a specific manuscript needs, and how you can address those needs to make it even more compelling to its readers.
The What's Next Workshop
A five-week, asynchronous workshop to help established and mid-career independent editors figure out what's next for their business.
In this workshop, we'll:
- Dream big
- Consider what you want and need from your business
- Explore how to move from where you are to the business of your dreams
- Develop a concrete plan to get you there
You'll also get a private one-on-one session with me to discuss whatever you want. And we'll wrap up the five weeks with an online party.
