Interested? First, write the story. Don't worry about grammar, spelling, and consistency.

Just get the story in a manageable Word document. Every writing project begins there.

Here's a Word Count guide, because it matters:

Short Stories are less than 7,500 words.

A Novelette is 7,500 to 17,500 words.

A Novella is 17,500 to 40,000 words.

A Novel is 40,000 to 110,000 words, BUT the minimum goal should be around 60,000 words for marketability.


When you have your story in the Word file, please call Scott Vaughan. We can help with:

- General story critique.

- Formal rounds of editing and proofreading.

- Cover design.

- Interior formatting.

- Upload to Amazon.com.

- Marketing counsel, using email, social media, book signings, new releases, and retails sales.
