About Writing Coach Teresa / Writing-Career Matchmaker Teresa

Have you seen the latest edition of my fun workbook? Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW

Available through Amazon.com

I am Teresa LeYung Ryan. My clients call me a writing coach/manuscript consultant/editor/book doctor/writing-career coach/writing-career matchmaker–I help my clients build their names, polish their manuscripts, and identify publishing routes by focusing on the themes and archetypes in their fiction and non-fiction books and articles.

Form a Study-Group, split the cost and hire “Writing Coach Teresa”  &  “Writing-Career Matchmaker Teresa ” to:

  • coach you in name-building to attract the right agent or publisher; show you how to keep your name synonymous with the themes/subject matters/issues you write about
  • guide you in designing and growing your blog (to showcase your expertise and experiences)
  • show you computer-navigating shortcuts and how to easily “find stuff” on the World Wide Web
  • edit your manuscript, 22 pages at a time so that you can gain tools with each installment; help you compose pitches, query letters and synopses

Contact me through this blog by submitting a comment on this post; please be sure to include your full name, email address, your website/blog address (if you have one), and a subject line.  OR email me at my Gmail account.; my ID is:  WritingCoachTeresa

Need a skilled editor to help you turn your manuscript into a page-turner?  I’m the affordable editor; ask  me to edit 22 pages at a time. Gain tools from my coaching with each installment of your manuscript.

Learn how to use  archetypes, themes/universal messages, metaphors, hooks, foreshadows, pivotal plot points, seamless transitions, and poignancy to make your story a compelling read.

I like to edit fiction and narrative non-fiction with strong and quirky protagonists, memoirs, young adult fiction, and short stories.

Visit http://WritingCoachTeresa.com home page to find out what it means when an agent or editor tells a writer that his/her story is episodic.

I use my novel Love Made of Heart to:
• help mothers and daughters speak from the heart
• shed light on stigmas suffered by immigrants
• advocate compassion for mental illness
• help survivors of family violence find their own voices

    Teresa, you were so kind to me last night.

    I loved sharing that Redwood Writers’ Panel with you. Your enthusiasm and insight made our group efforts shine. I only wish you had been given more time to talk about how you conduct your coaching work with writers.

    I know you have given, and continue to give, a tremendous amount of time and effort to writers, the CWC and to libraries. Thank you for your advocacy and dedication.

    Deborah Taylor-French
