Many writers have approached me over the years, wanting my Balls of Steel™ advice on how to build their own online and offline network, get their material read by Hollywood executives, turn their novels into screenplays, start a website, use Twitter, face their haunting fears, find the perfect margarita… you name it, they ask it.
What I’ve found is most writers fail because of the roadblocks they create themselves. We specialize in self sabotage. Sometimes we can’t see our mistakes clearly or need a little help navigating our way through the terrifying path from aspiring to produced.
Let me help you help yourself.
Pick my brain, one-on-one, with my consulting services via Skype or telephone, or even in person, should we be in the same area.
Note: I like to keep it real. If I don’t think I can help you, or I think another person would be able to offer you more information, I’ll be honest and direct you elsewhere. So, please feel free to email me before signing up for a consult to discuss the possibilities!

“As a burgeoning screenwriter, Jeanne’s webinars have provided the direction I have needed to fine tune my script and to prepare me for the challenge of selling it. Oftentimes when taking classes, I feel like I have wasted my money and my time listening to someone give predictable or vague advice. Not with Jeanne. She packs in a ton of useful information into her 90 minute webinars, and always includes specific resources. She demystifies the world of Hollywood and gives practical guidance on the etiquette of script selling. Because of her webinars, I now feel confident and energized to begin the process of selling my script. Her sincerity to teach others shines through her webinars and makes her a joy to learn from. If you are going to spend any money on your screenwriting education, it is well worth it to spend it on gleaning Jeanne’s wisdom.”
