Why is setting up the foundations for a book important?

This work sets your book up for success upfront

Designing a book that works doesn’t start after you’ve already written the book. It starts at the beginning, during the planning phase. That’s exactly what book foundations are. Doing this work before you start writing gives you a strong foundation to write from, which in turn saves you time on revisions down the road. It will inform every decision you make when it comes down to writing. This is the work that’s least done in book writing, but also the most well-kept secret and the key to taking your book from good to great.

What happens if I don’t do this work?

You risk leaving out crucial story elements

Many writers start writing a book without knowing where it’ll take them. Others create detailed spreadsheets, pulling apart the plot in an effort to be in control of the tiniest detail; they often leave out what makes a story a story.

What makes a story a story?

A story at its core is about something that happens (the plot) and how that affects the protagonist to change (character arc), while making the point (the deeper level why of the book). This is true for both fiction and nonfiction (in nonfiction, the protagonist is the reader, in memoir, it’s the writer). Regardless of genre, story is about change. Including an arc of change is crucial to a book’s formation. It’s easy to forget that if we are not conscious of it.

Is Book Foundations right for me?

✔️Are you looking to avoid writing a full draft just to figure out what your book is about (and then multiple more drafts after that)?
✔️Are you open and receptive to feedback on how to improve?
✔️Do you understand that there is a lot more that goes into writing a book than simply writing it (such as planning and decison-making)?
✔️Are you looking to find out what makes a great story and learn how to apply it to your own writing?
✔️Are you willing to give time to this process to save time later?

If you answered yes to the above, then you are ready for Book Foundations work!

Who is the LITE version for?

If you need help on a specific story element

If you’ve been stuck for weeks or months on end, waiting for a light bulb to go off about how to proceed with the next chapter or scene, or if you keep going down writing craft book or course rabbit holes yet still struggle to apply what you learn in your own writing. Work through your issue with an expert who’s trained to help you through with targeted feedback and exercises. Draw on my knowledge and expertise to get yourself unstuck.

“I would recommend Little Red Bird Publishing to anyone in a heartbeat! There is no one else who I would trust to help me with the editing and publishing of my book. I have zero regrets, and I can look back at the whole process with good memories because she took the pressure I felt with certain tasks and made it an enjoyable thing! She has exceeded all of my expectations and is such a joy to work with. Somehow, Robin takes the tasks that I ask her to take care of and helps me to still be a part of it without it being stressful. That’s exactly what I wanted and needed more than I could even express. It’s very clear that her goal is to help you achieve the outcome you’re after. If you feel intimidated or overwhelmed, this is your girl. I have full confidence that she can do anything she puts her mind to and all of her work is praise-worthy.”

Robin was kind, loving, patient, and an incredibly fast worker. In fact, she had our book published within a month — absolutely amazing!

The vision of my book that I had in mind turned out better than I could have imagined thanks to Robin and her patience and diligence. She is always ready to answer questions and has impeccable work ethic. My book was published within a month of sending it to her!

“Publishing a book is daunting, and I was about to give up on my dream of turning my manuscript into a book. Then Robin saved me. I was able to sit back and let her take the lead. I really enjoyed her methodical, transparent approach to self-publishing. I knew exactly what stage we were at, at all times. Always very clear and prompt in communication and very much on time. She gave me a lot of confidence and guidance and, thanks to her, the book was published on time, as expected, without any hiccups. The smoothest collaboration ever. Hire her with confidence. She’ll get you published.”
