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.


Writing Services



For authors who require more one-to-one interaction to develop the manuscript. This service includes:

  • Brainstorming

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.
