Author Consultations

Brighton has been published since 2013, first traditionally with Berkley (Penguin Random House), St. Martin’s Press (Macmillan), and Carina Press (Harlequin/HarperCollins), and then hybrid beginning 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 secret pen names that have been published traditionally with Audible and Forever. She was a PitchWars mentor for five years, and during that time, she mentored now-published authors Helen HoangJen DeLucaKelly SiskindSuzanne 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:

  • Author Brand
  • Brainstorming
  • Character development
  • Cover art/graphics
  • Co-writing
  • Marketing
  • Newsletters (building, content, automations)
  • Organization
  • Outlining
  • Plotting
  • Querying
  • Sex scenes
  • Signing with an agent
  • Social media content
  • Strategy
  • Wide vs KU
  • Writing process/tools

Consultations are $175 for a one-hour phone or video call. Please reach out to Brighton here to check her availability and see if you’d be a good fit.
