Brighton Walsh, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author


author consultations

This authoring business can be a lonely, solitary world, but it doesn’t have to be.

Brighton has been publishing for ten years, first traditionally with Berkley (Penguin), St. Martin’s Press (Macmillan), and Carina (Harlequin/HarperCollins) and then hybrid in 2016 with her first self published novel. While she’s focused mostly on self-publishing in recent years, she’s also written titles under pen names that have been published traditionally. She was a PitchWars mentor for five years, and during that time, she mentored now-published authors Helen Hoang, Jen DeLuca, Kelly Siskind, Suzanne Baltsar/Sophie Andrews, and more.

As a hybrid author, she’s comfortable consulting on either the indie or traditional sides of publishing. Some possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • Brainstorming
  • Plotting
  • Character development
  • Sex scenes
  • Querying
  • Marketing
  • Co-writing
  • Strategy
  • Brand
  • Cover art/graphics


Consultations are $150 for a one hour phone or video call. Please reach out to Brighton via email at to check availability and to book a consult.
