Everybody has a story to tell. If you're reading this page, you're ready to tell yours.

I've self-published six books from the ground up. I've written coverage for hundreds of screenplays in Hollywood. I live, eat, and breathe words all day, every day.

There are thousands of how-to books that will instruct you on the details of the writing process; description, punctuation, dialogue, grammar, etc. etc. etc. But if you need help with the big picture—if you need to get words on the page in a way that will hook your readers—I can do what books can't.


If you'd like to get a sense of my style and priorities before committing to a session, check out my free ebook about writing on Amazon or by subscribing to my newsletter. (If you'd rather not use Amazon or subscribe, shoot me an email and I'll send you a free PDF.)


"For quite a while I've been utterly stumped in my writing and felt that giving up was the only solution. I had read hundreds of writing books and got to the point where I felt there was nothing more to read. Talking for an hour with Jake showed me the way. He talked me through my ideas in such simple and direct terms and it flipped a switch in my mind. For the next few days I used his advice and the writing flowed. I expect to use his techniques for the rest of my life." -Adam B Schwartz, WFIU-WTIU Public Broadcasting
