Industry Navigation Assistance: $20— Est. Turnaround Time—2 weeks after the receipt of completed questionnaire.

This service is all about giving you a guide to the industry—like paying for a compass. Need help finding some resources? Get overwhelmed by planning? Let me be a small part of your support system. I’ll work with you to develop a tailored guidebook (anywhere from 5-15 pages) that will include items such as a recommended revision timeline, possible querying strategies, and specific tools you can use depending on your needs. I will also send two e-mail check-ins to follow up with you after you’ve received your booklet.

Pinpointing Services—$40 (This service will require that you provide the first ten pages and synopsis. Your pages and synopsis will not be critiqued.) Est. Turnaround Time—2 weeks.

Struggling to find your book’s age category and genre? Or maybe you haven’t been able to find the perfect comps? Then let me help you pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for.

We can go through your synopsis and first ten pages and identify what fits your story better.

If it’s comp titles you’re seeking, I will help you track down potential options. I will generate a list of 5-10 book titles. These titles will be the same age category as your book, within the same broader genre, and will have been published within the last four years. It is my recommendation that you read the books on the list provided before utilizing any of them as comps. I will also recommend other source materials. We will then have a discussion about whether comps are something you want to use and if so, how they can, hopefully, be used effectively.

Note: Comps are something that many people think they need, but may not actually require. Comps can work against you as much as they help you. That is why I prefer approaching this service as let’s talk about your market and your audience, and strategize for potential hurdles. Representation matters.
