The Ability to Write Made Possible by Patrons Like You

 

Author Services

From query letters to final book cover checks, not to mention those pages in between. Here's what I offer to help you put your best work forward.

 

Query Letter

A query letter is how most of us will land our dream agents, and nothing says I've got this like a sparkling query letter. This is one of my favorite things to do with people.

Chapter Critique

Once interest is piqued, now it's time keep them hungry—all it takes is a solid intro into your work. Pace, hook, and plot, whether first 5 pages or 3 chapters, I've got you.

Cover Copy/Text

The back cover on a book or front page descriptive text can make or break a sale. No pressure? None! I can edit your text or write fresh copy, and take all the stress off you.

 

By Consultation Only

I offer the following very specialized services by consultation or personal recommendation only

 
 

Sensitivity Reading

The world is changing. And by that, I mean that the world is exactly as it always has been—filled to the brim with richly diverse people. The industry is waking up to this truth, and empowered authors are pushing to be heard, recognized, andrespected. 

So what do you do if you have no experience including certain kinds of representation in your work, but have no real experience with the subject matter? 

That's where I come in. I go over your material and flag it for issues—offensive stereotype, shallow representation, damaging or hurtful perpetuation of stigma—and offer alternate suggestions. Making well-rounded characters means exploring the depth of every person you write about, and having a credible, established sensitivity reader can make all the difference.

Specialties include and are limited to realistic representations of:

  • gender: nonbinary, female, femme

  • sexuality: bi-/pansexuality

  • lifestyle: shibari/rope, D/s (excluding slavery)

  • mental health: bipolar, PTSD, depression, suicidal ideation, recovery from abusive relationships, trauma

  • faith/belief: Buddhism


Squarespace Website Design
