The services offered via Indiescififantasy (ISF Author Services) are designed to assist authors at any stage of the writing, editing, or publishing process – from the inkling of an idea through to promotion.
ISF Author Services consists of eight team members, each focusing on an area of expertise. Packages are available for those who require full project management.
For authors who require more one-to-one interaction to develop the manuscript. This service includes:
- Plot analysis
If you have had a great idea for a book, but aren’t sure where to start, this service will help you organise your ideas and create an outline, develop character profiles, and more.
Your story will be read and the story broken down into plot, themes, and character movement and interaction, allowing you to step back and see the bigger picture in an easy-to-navigate spreadsheet.
This service includes a single read, after which you will receive an editorial letter highlighting its weaknesses and strengths, with advice on steps you can take to improve it.
