I’ll have some additional questions specific to your characters and book.
This helps us save time and keep the process on track by ensuring I have what I need to bring your characters to life the way you envision them.
Is you hero reserved or a little outlandish? Is your heroine feisty or demure? Is the tone of their inner thoughts materially different to what they show society? Is the villain of your story charming and convincing, only for his true character to be reveled later? If so, I want our audience to be as shocked as they should be.
We’ll work together early on to ensure our audience gets a performance that feels true to your story.
Once I’ve gotten a clear picture of your story, I’ll get to work bringing your concepts and characters to life.
Before we begin production in earnest, you’ll receive an extended sample from me. It’ll be a set of samples from most major characters in your book, showing my initial approach. Your feedback is important at this stage, as I’ll incorporate it into every upcoming chapter. It’s critical to be open about what you like and let me know if there is
anything you don’t love, or if there’s a character I’ve not provided a sample for that you’d like to hear.
It’s okay to be blunt. Having this information early on will help me ensure that the effort I put into the upcoming chapters closely matches your vision, and that we stay on schedule once production begins.
I’ll keep you in the loop, long before final review.
I want you to know what’s going on with your story, so I’ll upload chapters as I complete them. This will give you to chance to review, and provide feedback, as you have time.
The idea is to give you time to listen and reflect as we go, instead of hitting you with 10 to 20 hours of review all at once.
I work with a professional proof listener that provides feedback on technical aspects. That way you can focus on your story knowing that nothing will be missed.
