Let's find out if your story works the way you think it works. We can look at the big picture—the general framework, how it’s organized, and its place on the shelves. Or we can dig deep with line-by-line analyses, pinpointing critical passages and exploring alternatives. It’s a critical-minded perspective on how your story is told, answering your questions, aligned with the insight you’re looking for.


From original cover designs to smart jacket copy to targeted promotional campaigns, we can package your work artfully and strategically, in print or online. Choose the help you need. We're here to ensure words and images work together in effective and profound ways.
