Stuck in writer’s block? Don’t like the way a scene is going? I am here to help! I will read your outline, manuscript, and other relevant materials you provide and try to rescue you from plot hole panic. I will ghostwrite or rewrite a small section of your book that’s bothering you, up to 5,000 words if necessary.

This service includes:
· up to 5,000 words of ghostwritten content
· suggestions on how to transition out of the end of the scene or continue it
· analysis of what I thought wasn’t working, what I added, and why I added what I did

 

A New Beginning

Time Estimate: 3 days
Genres accepted: fantasy, horror, romance, historical fiction

NOTE: Accepting this job is contingent upon review and/or consultation via email.

Maybe you’re not confident about your intro hook. Maybe you’re unsure about the sustainability of the plot tension. Whatever the reason, you’d like to see how someone else would start your book. You provide character details and the relevant portions of an outline and I either write detailed story beats for that section or write the first 1,000 words. You are welcome to keep and use them as ghostwritten content if you wish.

This service includes:
· 1,000 words of ghostwritten content to begin your story
· suggestions on the immediate continuation of the scene and how it fits into the story arc
