Ashamed of your website?

Did you know agents and publishers will check out your author platform before offering you a publishing deal? Will yours embarrass you? Get a total branded author website and social platform (DONE FOR YOU) that will get you a book deal. $997

Website design is a pain, especially because most authors want something that expresses their soul, rather than something simple and functional which will actually boost credibility and sell books. (Contact for details).

 

Have a good book and a stack of rejection letters?

Tired of submitting to agents? Don't let your creative dream die! Our PROVEN literary services will quickly fix the core issues with your book and allow your writing to shine... GUARANTEED. $749

This would include critiquing the synopsis and outline, finding the hook and pitch, and editing the query letter and first three chapters (agents sometimes ask for the first 50 pages). I stopped editing years ago but this would be something I enjoy that would also be higher value than just the editing. (I'm a great editor, but it's frustrating to edit a book when the author's in charge - focusing on the commercial aspect, what this book needs in order to be SELLABLE - is more attractive for me and valuable for authors).

Wrestling with a story idea that just won't come together?

Losing the battle to procrastination and self-doubt? Get unstuck! Our plot doctoring services will fix your saggy middle and leave readers surprised and delighted with the thrilling twists. With a clearly structured outline, you'll be EXCITED about working on your book again. $349

I LOVE outlining. Coming up with plot twists and events is my favorite thing to do (actually drafting is harder for me). And a lot of authors get stuck somewhere in the middle, don't know what happens next, which sucks up the enthusiasm for the project - lots of good books die somewhere in the middle. I've seen other services like this for $200ish, but I have a PhD in Literature and I focus on commercial books, which means my help is valuable. I can help turn a mediocre book or story into a great one, and I can do it before you waste months writing a less powerful version.

Want to build an email list of raving fans?

When books don't sell it's often because the author has no fans - building an email list BEFORE you launch your book can get you 50+ guaranteed reviews, and is the most powerful long term marketing.

But how do you grow your list, what do you write them about, how do you get them to like and trust you? My "Reader Seduction 101" course will help you get your first 1000 subscribers FAST. $197

Got a good book that's not selling (and you've already tried everything?)

It's not your fault! You're a writer, not a marketer. The good news is, you can quickly get your book selling by fixing a few external details. Our Book Transfusion services will give your book a facelift, and pump new life into your sales - with no marketing! $349

This is a total author platform audit, including blurb revision and keyword research. If necessary, I'll include a fresh book cover as well. If your book isn't selling and you're not sure why, I can help!
