Story Consultation

Want a second opinion on your new book before you start a big marketing push? I can give you a full story consultation for a small reading fee.

Wait, isn’t this just a paid review service?

Not at all! A consultation will provide more in-depth constructive criticism about your characters, storyline, writing, and flow. I’ll go into more detail since I don’t have to worry about spoiling a potential reader. Consultations are private – I will not post my thoughts on my blog or any other review site, and to avoid any conflict of interest, I’ll decline to post a public review of your book even if it’s gone through a rewrite.

Define ‘small reading fee.’

I charge $25 per hundred pages, with your page count rounded to the nearest hundred. (So a 242-page book would be $50, but a 276-page book would be $75.) I take payments through PayPal invoices that you can pay with your PayPal account or credit card.

Do you also provide proofreading or editing?

I’m about to give you the most annoying answer ever: maybe. It really depends on my current workload, the length of your book, and the level of editing required. Still, if you’re interested, please don’t hesitate to reach out and I’ll see what I can do.
