"Heidi offered valuable help on improvements for my author platform, and I came away from the consultation with a new sense of purpose, with several concrete goals to work on that actually felt achievable. She tailored her advice specifically to me and my platform, and I will definitely work with her again in the future!"

~YA Fantasy Author Liz Delton

Heidi Lyn Burke gave even an experienced author great advice. I needed another experienced eye to glance over my marketing and platform. Heidi provided exactly what I needed.

About the Service

Do you have a hard time reaching readers? Feel lost on social media? Like you are posting into a void or that your posts are boring and not driving engagement? 

Do you have a hard time talking about your books in a way that makes them attractive to readers?

I believe that every author has a potential to be a confident creative superstar, and I love helping authors unlock their inner Sparkly Writer Princess (or Wonderful Word Wizard, if you prefer). 


The Process:

  • Take my quick survey to help pinpoint your “shinies.” 

  • Book an hour of time for me to go over this with you and formulate a plan of attack 

  • Follow up through email to track progress and help make course corrections as needed.

Basic Package: 1 Hour consultation plus follow up: $50


The same work up where I'll go over your platform, goals, and resources to formulate a plan, but instead of an hour consult, you get a half hour ... but for only half the price. $25

Other Services:

  • Quick critique: I will evaluate a 5000 word sample of your writing for common (fixable) issues. $25

  • Platform evaluation: I will evaluate your author platform for common (fixable) issues. $20 (in this context, by platform I mean your social media, author site, and book pages including covers, blurbs, and reviews)

  • Beta Reading (some genre restrictions) I’ll give an overall assessment of your manuscript (note: not an editing service). Pricing based on length of manuscript. $1 per 1000 words.
