Are you a first-time author with no idea what you’re doing except maybe that you want to write a book? Maybe you launched a book but aren’t seeing the results you’d hoped you would, and you want to do things better this time around. Let me help you without all the struggle. Below is a full package to get your book from start to finish and out into the world.
I won’t write your book for you or try to insert my ideas. Ideas are your brainchild. The settings, characters, and their growth are up to you. I will ask questions about things to show you where holes are or prompt you for an enhancing element. But a good editor will never tell you that a character should do XYZ. I may suggest a stronger alternative, but the power is always in your hands.
I’ve been where you are. I published on my own with no help back in 2016, no one to talk to, and the feeling I had to hide my passion from judging eyes. Many many courses, pen names, and books later… I’ve got a solid handle on the process and how to tackle this all without super expensive programs and memberships.
The biggest question you have to ask yourself, is why do you want to write a book? There are a lot of things to consider when tackling book creation.
What is the end goal for your book?
Who are you writing the book for?
How long do you want your book to be?
How do you hope this book affects your life/business?
How much time, effort, and money are you willing to put into this book?
Is this the only book or will you have more? (This affects your branding)
These are things we’ll discuss to define your goals and help create a plan moving forward.
Consultation is Free
Book Plan Creation $25
Author Platform Plan $25
We’ll work through an outline for each of your chapters to make sure you’re on track for your genre as well as your goals for the story.
Book Map $50
This is likely the slowest part of the process. But it doesn’t have to be. You may underwrite or overwrite. You might stray from the plan. That’s okay. Here, you will be able to talk with me about the process, if you get stuck, and how to get moving again. I’ll never tell you how to write your story. But I will ask questions to help you figure out what needs to change so that the story can continue and/or you can find inspiration again.
Consultation is Free
I will go through every stage of editing with you here. When your book is finished, I’ll do a critique to go over basic concerns and successful areas. You’ll get an Author Booster sheet which will highlight good things, so you don’t have to worry about being discouraged.
After you’ve had time to go over my notes and do some rewriting, cutting, or additional creation, we’ll move on to developmental edits (if necessary). It will be the same process for line edits, copy edits, and proofing. I will do the edits, then send them to you for acceptance and finalizing.
Developmental Edits: $0.025/word
Line Edits: $0.03/word
(ex: 50,000 book = $4,150) <= Ouch, right? Don’t worry… There’s a much better offer below!
Your cover is your packaging. You need it to reflect your book, its genre, and hook readers in under two seconds.
eBook Cover $60
If you don’t have a plan for marketing, no one will see your book and know they need to buy it. We’ll talk about how to get reviews, Launch week ads, the first month’s ads, and how to keep going with evergreen ads.
Marketing Plan Outline $49

What are you thinking about writing?
Hey! I’m Amy. I’ve been helping other indie authors for several years. If you’re looking for testimonials, check out the Editing page. I know it can be a daunting process to write and publish a book. It feels like there’s so much to do. And there absolutely is.
That’s why I want to help you through it. I remember that chaos of learning everything myself and trying to manage it all while still writing and not losing motivation. I’m not just here to help you get the work done, I’m here for you emotionally and mentally too. Your story is important. Let’s get it out into the world!
