Commissioned Outline

you bring the idea.

We bring the outline.

If you have an idea for a story, but lack the time or know-how to create your own outlines, we can help.

You give us as much information as you can about your project.

You tell us your strengths and weaknesses.

You tell us what level of outline you want us to provide.

We build a tailored outline to you using your story elements.


How It Works

Create your onenote

The first step is to create your OneNote and share it with frankie@realindieauthor.com, and then let us know what level of outline you’re expecting.

Then, add all the information about your world, characters, and story that you have.

Then, also, tell us about you as an author. What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What would pull you away from a book?

Step 1: Review

We then review what you’ve given us and develop our plan.

If this is a series, we come up with a series plan.

If this is a mystery, we build our mystery map.

If there is additional world or character information that’s needed, we add that.

Step 2: Outline

We will outline in batch of chapters for you to review.

You make whatever notes you want, ask questions, or change course at your convenience.

We review those notes, make changes and alterations, and then work on the next batch of chapters.

And then, when it’s done, you do one final read-thru and sign off!
