Writing Consultancy Services

I am excited to announce my writing consultancy services and my new website. Aside from honing my craft at writing a fantasy series for more than ten years, I am a content writer and a marketer by profession. In that time, I have gained valuable experience in writing and marketing for businesses and organisations, across a variety of industries.

In addition, I have assisted aspiring authors by assessing their manuscripts. I have offered them advice on the strengths of their stories, and where I think they can improve to make their novels more engaging.

If I can assist you through one or more of the services below, contact me and I’ll do my best to help you in any way I can. (For prices, check my website.)

The Blurb

The blurb for the book is one of the most elements to enable you to grab your potential reader’s attention. One of my USP’s as a content writer is to turn the complex into the simple, and make it concise so that the layman can understand what your narrative is about, quickly.

In short, I will help you write a blurb that is a few sentences long and that will grab your audience’s attention.

3 Chapter Review and Short Consultancy Report

Review either the first three chapters (including the prologue) or the first 30 pages of your manuscript, and will give you a short report on what works and aspects that can be improvement upon.

Proofreading

Correct spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and highlight narrative inconsistencies.

Proofreading & Short Report

Correct spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and highlight narrative inconsistencies, plus I write a short report on the positives of the story and where it can be improved.

Proofreading & Consultancy Report

Correct spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and highlight narrative inconsistencies, plus I write an in-depth report on the positives of the story and where it can be improved.

Mentoring

Regardless of the stage you are at in your writing journey (beginner, finished the first draft of your narrative, or are an experienced writer), we can discuss your story and brainstorm ideas for an hour at a time over Skype or Zoom.

Formatting

Once your book is complete and you are planning to self-publish it, you will need to format it for publication. I can do for this for you for Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), whether you intend to publish your novel as an e-book only and/or as a paperback.

Cover Design

writing consultancy services - my novella
I can give you direction on how to create a cover that is striking on the eye. The proof is my own fantasy novella, to be released on 2nd July – The Sultan’s Daughter.

“Never judge a book by its cover” – That’s the old saying. But do you know why it exists? Because people do judge a book by its cover. Therefore, your cover must captivate and intrigue your would-be readers to the point where they will want to read your book.

Via a Zoom conversation, we will discuss and I will advise you on how to create a cover that is apt for your story. So that your book will grab your audience’s attention.

Branding & Marketing

There are thousands of self-published authors online and, sadly, most fall into the internet’s abyss. So, how do you intend to get yourself and your book noticed?

Together, via Zoom, we will discuss and devise a brand for yourself online and a marketing strategy that will help to give you some traction for when your book is released.
