Proposed Next Steps


You might know me as a fast-moving indie author, rambling podcaster, aspiring author coach, and social media guru. But more than that...


I'm a hustler.

I'm a doer.

I'm a hardworking,  self-published dreamer who's learned a thing or two over the years about writing, small-business, and the ever-evolving indie author world.


I've published over 15 books since 2012, and each experience has taught me something new about myself, my craft, and about self-publishing success.  

Whether you're new to the indie-author world or a long-time author, we creatives sometimes need accountability and planning to keep ourselves on track.




Project consultation on an as-needed basis.

*Recommended for authors who want to think through project ideas, strategic next steps for their brand, and/or create a production schedule conducive to their needs, with realistic goals and expectations in mind.





On-going time management and accountability coaching. Includes one weekly check-in via email, and a monthly 40 minute consultation via phone or video for feedback, guidance, and additional resources moving forward.

*Recommended for authors who have a business or success plan in place, but need additional motivation to stay on track.

Starting From:



Review & Feedback

- Additional consultation after read-through is $50/hour.

*This is not a developmental edit.

Session includes a social media and mailing list Brand Evaluation (if applicable) and a 90-minute strategizing consult via phone or video with outlined recommendations and next steps for building, maintaining, and engaging your target audience.

*Additional consult replaces Brand Eval for authors who have no existing brand or audience.

*Recommended for new authors who need to build a reader following and don't know where to start, and for author re-branding/pen name launches.





Recommended for full-scale author branding, re-branding, and building a new author platform in order to organize, prioritize, plan, and execute your goals. Includes:

- Personalized Strategy Plan
