I love stories. I love writing stories. I love reading stories. Why? Because there’s nothing quite like that feeling of rightness and satisfaction after finishing a great story.
It’s an even better feeling knowing when I write such a story. Yeah, that’s pretty awesome.
But for me, there’s an even better feeling of accomplishment. And that’s helping other writers feel pride in a story well written, and even helping them get it published.
That’s one of my goals for the new year, to help lift up other writers so they too can feel pride in a job well done. So they (you) can realize the dream of becoming a published author, or just feel freaking amazing for writing and completing that story that’s been a haunting obsession.
I know from experience that writing is not always a clear cut path. Doubt and indecision can be a constant plague. Sometimes even making us question our work, and if we should continue to write. The odds may not seem in our favor, so why even bother?
I want to help alleviate some of that doubt by offering my time and experience. I want to help those seeking guidance in their story, novella, or novel. So on a first come, first serve basis, I am offering free story consultation. It doesn’t matter the length or genre, I want to read your work, and then let you know what I think.
I will give you an honest opinion of how it reads, feels, and my reactions for the over all story. I can also give you an idea of what sort, if any, editing the story will need to complete it. I can also give guidance on steps to take to self-publish, if that’s your goal. Or give tips on how to prep your work for submission to a traditional publisher.
This is just an overview, a start to get you pointed in the right direction, a pat on the back for the parts of writing that are working for you, and a stop sign for the parts that need a little extra help.
If your story does require editing, I do offer editing services (I also know other editors I can refer you to). If you choose to work more with me, we can then work together to polish your piece of art into a master piece. I also offer book cover designing and interior book formatting for those who want the help to self-publish, but are feeling a little overwhelmed with how to get it all done.
The world needs more stories. It needs my stories. It needs your stories. Stories are what we all use to help make sense out of life, to feel good about ourselves, and to help lift each other up. Yes, writing is worth the effort. And yes, your story is worth telling.
If you have a story to tell, don’t let your contribution get lost because of self-doubt or a lack of knowing how to move forward. Let me be your cheerleader. Let me be a guide. And if I can’t help you directly, I will point you in the right direction.
If you are interested in getting your work to shine, simply go to Free Story, Novella, Novel Consultation, and place your request. Go through the regular checkout process (there will be no charge). This will let me know you are interested, and then I will contact you through email.
I have helped several people finish work and become published, I want to help you do the same.
And what do I get out of this offer? I get the chance work with even more amazing writers, and feel good about giving back to the writing community. I’m always looking for ways of paying it forward (because I have been blessed with so much help and support in my writing career), and this is my newest way of doing that.
I’m so excited to hear from you! Let’s get your story out there. Let’s add another great adventure for the world to read.
