I’m Frankie Blooding and I like helping authors grow.

The services I offer are tested through my own indie author career. If it’s not something that works, I don’t offer it.

For the time being, I am the RIA team. 

I have a part-time job from 8-2 M-F. I am limiting the work I offer to one major project every 1-2 weeks. 

This is a highly creative business, so it’s important to keep the fuel tanks full. When I’m ready, I’ll bring more outliners and editors on again. We’re going to keep things small for now. Thank you so much for understanding and I look forward to working with you.

I help you grow your author business your way so you can write sustainably.
Outlines are excellent project management tools to keep you on task, on target, and on schedule.
Great edits to help your stories shine.
