Add-On Services

Synopsis

Yes, the dreaded synopsis. It’s a necessary evil. For $5, I will slay the beast and write a short synopsis of your book that can be included on your back cover, amazon page, or anywhere else that suits your fancy. (No attribution necessary)

Reviews

A short (100 words or less) review can be requested with any of the other services FREE of charge!

★ Any review can be included in the ‘Editorial Review’ section on Amazon, although, I do ask that you include my name.

★ For reviews 3 stars or above, I will also post to Goodreads with my own account, to the REVIEWS section of my website, and on my social media.

Rush projects

In a hurry? Have a specific deadline to meet? For $10 I can speed up the gears and shave off the timeline. (Approval required)
