NOW BOOKING FOR JUNE – SEPTEMBER 2020
As I’ve grown as an author and writer I’ve come realize that sometimes you just need help.
I’ve seen many authors struggle with title creation and overall story cohesion. You don’t have to be one of them. I can teach you how to create strong titles and be your go to content editor. As a dark fiction author myself, I focus these services towards dark fantasy, horror, and historical fiction.
With the title creation service I walk you through the most useful strategies to brainstorm title ideas. Together, with you in the lead, we’ll create a title that not only sounds true to your writing, but makes your book stand out. Once you know these tricks, you’ll have another writing weapon in your arsenal. One you can use time and time again.
An hour and a half long one-on-one session via Skype or Google Meets (your preference). First we’ll talk about the themes of your book, your audience, and what your goals for the story are. Then I’ll walk you through the title creation process (title maps included), and do everything with you. Together, with you in the lead, we’ll create two titles. One for your current project and one that can be used for a new project, a sequel, or as an alternate title. Both titles will be genre focused and true to your story. Best of all, you keep all rights to the titles you create and will have a new tool in your writing toolbox. One you can use time and time again!
+There is a $2 fee for each extra title beyond the two standard ones if using the same title maps.
+There is a $3 fee for each extra title beyond the two standard ones if using a new title map.
After sorting through and implementing the feedback from your beta readers, it’s time for content editing. Content editing is one of my favorite parts of the writing process, yet a lot of authors skip it, jumping right into beta reading or line editing. Don’t make that mistake. You and your story don’t deserve that.
Content editing examines the story as a whole, focusing on plot holes, character development, and pacing; what’s making the story work and what needs tweaking. It can even be done with just the outline of your story. Taking time for this first step, before sending your work off to your beta readers or line editors, gives you a ton of perks:
I treat content editing as a team effort. Before getting started, I’ll ask for a summary of your story and what you feel the strengths and weaknesses of your story are. With that in mind, I’ll give detailed feedback on any discrepancies in the plot, characters, setting, and dialogue. If something’s not working, we’ll brainstorm ideas to fix the issue and keep the story firmly your story. I’ll also tell you what you’re doing right (and what I love). Finding hidden gems in a story is a delight for me, and you deserve to know what makes your story stand out.
