Coaching with Frankie

Rated 5 out of 5
July 21, 2021

Frankie’s wholistic approach to coaching has been a godsend for my struggling writing career. Her knowledge, experience and enthusiasm are second to none, and she truly cares about her authors. Whether you’re a beginner writer overwhelmed by All The Things, or an experienced writer who needs some ‘back to basics’, reinvigoration of stale processes, or a bit of a motivation-and-confidence kick in the butt, Frankie helps tap into your psyche and align those things hindering your ability to create. She provides honest and timely feedback, helps strengthen your weaknesses, and is super easy to communicate with. Frankie is an excellent coach and I highly recommend her services.

Frankie's Knowledge of the Industry and Craft Shine Through

Rated 5 out of 5
July 4, 2021

Having Frankie as my writing coach has done wonders for keeping me motivated in the way I need to be motivated. Her approach to coaching based on individual clients’ learning and writing style makes it a home run for anyone looking to hone their craft. She is great as a cheerleader and when you need someone to tell you the real stuff, without the fluff. She is working with me on writing the story I both want and NEED to write. I would recommend her services to anyone.

Outlines with Elly

Rated 5 out of 5

I have been able to work with Elly for more than one outline. Her outlines are very strong, and she really listens to any and all questions or input from the author. She works very hard to flex to both my schedule and hers. I’m looking forward to writing these books now, thanks to her outlining services and concepts.

Absolutely the best online novel outlining course. I completed the course with a detailed romance outline ready to go.

Frankie was able to tweak my outline to add more paranormal elements and offered her opinion on my suggestions as well. Her outlines are always spot on and help me create a page-turning story. Especially since I'm a pantser and all my outlines I've ever done myself are blah. But she helps me stay focused and create an awesome story.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting a few plots from Frankie. Not only are the wonderful, but she’s fantastic to work with. Her attention to detail and little guidances (like section labels) truly help keep everything in order and so easy once it’s time to go. She’s also always on time and willing to change anything (not that I ever have).

Frankie’s outline course is a real eye opener. She covers story structure from Save the Cat to the Hero’s Journey and also shows you how to come up with your own unique beat sheet. And it’s entertaining! Worth every penny.
