Writers Services

Does your manuscript need a point of view or an extreme makeover?

See your novel through the reader's eyes for commercial success. See your novel through a writer's eyes for the fast track to realising your gifts as a writer by unlocking the full potential of your work in progress. Take the opportunity to work with Louise Dean.

Submit to me up to 80,000 words for a manuscript assessment to take your draft to final draft with a report and a one hour debrief live online.

Why me?

I'm a warm and encouraging friend to writers and work with over 100 writers presently. Their sessions with me, the chats online, have been described as being like a 'big hug'. That's because I build on your potential and co-create with a sleeves rolled up working style. I'm your collaborator and a best friend to you and your novel. I offer solutions, insights and a fast track to the big story inside your manuscript.

I have a degree from Cambridge in History and a penchant for novels, history, political spiritual and philosophical works and am a wide and voracious reader. I have been writing professionally as a published author and writing advertising and marketing copy for over 20 years. Every book, fiction or non-fiction, needs a story that packs a punch and a nice tight, smart, prose style to keep those pages turning!

I am able to advise you on structure, re-structuring and I have an eye for the pitch and 'hook' to get your book in front of agents and publishers. If you're looking for the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle for the success your hard work deserves, I'm here to help.

Consider a Manuscript Assessment to give you the fast track to the final draft of your novel.
