Whether you’re looking for someone to review your book or film, or you really want to find a horror-loving copywriter, you’ve come to the right place. I’ll even do a bit of editing if you ask nice.
And this is where real-world me and Author me clashes in a gory mess -I’ve always used pen names for fiction and my real name for everything else. Maybe one day I’ll explain why.
Website need tenderising?
Not just for horror websites, my copywriting favourite is About Pages -the 2nd most visited page on your site- which lets your audience know fun things like, what kind of lotion you prefer them to use or how many more limbs your centipede needs. You can tell them a little of your story, and how you got involved in the genre in the first place, not to mention getting the page to work for you.
All you have to do is answer a few questions. Like a fun quiz, but about you. Far easier to answer questions about yourself then write about yourself
Sounds delightful but how much will it cost?:
- About Page – £97
- Static pages – £73
- Re-writes of current pages – £41
Review of Books
I would love to review your horror, thriller, mystery, western or related genre. Please wander around the site to see if your book would be a good fit for my readers/audience. A western romance won’t fit here, but a horror sci-fi would. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your info and your book’s logline and title.
You’ll need to provide for the review:
- your book for free (either a coupon for use at checkout or pdf)
- cover image if it’s not available on Amazon
- And the answer to a question I will send you to let readers know more
- A short author bio
- Links to your blog, twitter, etc.
Review of Films
There are loads of reviews on this site, I review films on Monday’s and Wednesday’s. Wednesday’s are usually reserved for Indie movies, series, and short films. Horrors, thrillers, action, westerns, or other similar genres that you think would be suited to the audience. Email email@example.com with the logline and title of your film. Alternatively, follow and DM @AuthorKTMcQueen on Twitter.
You will need to provide for the review:
- Pre-screener or access to the movie for free in some other way (i.e. I made this, it’s available on Netflix/Amazon Prime)
- YouTube trailer link
- Images from the movie you’d like me to use or the poster
- IMDb page link or alternative with all the movie info
Yeah, I know. Editors charge a freakin fortune -and many of them are totally worth it. But getting your indie pub book edited when you haven’t even made any money yet is a hole in your pocket your empty kitchen cupboards just can’t agree to. And whilst my own starving hoards won’t allow me to work for free, I don’t have a fancy-schmancy editing qualification so I can charge way below the standard fee.
Yes, you read that right, I’m not a qualified editor but I have written loads of books and scripts (and a couple of dissertations), editing the hell out of them, and helped edit other author’s books. I’ll look for inconsistencies, questionable story moments (those moments that literally make the reader go WTF!?! is going on) so you don’t throw them out unintentionally, and take a gander at your story arc.
So, what do you reckon, £69 for up to 50k words and £138 for up to 150k words?
It’s firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested or DM me on twitter @AuthorKTMcQueen if you can’t wait for me to check my email.
