Bringing Your Vision to the Page and Beyond

“Writing is an act of audacious courage and hope. Red Raven Studio is a safe place to create without judgment. I hold myself to a high standard of trust. I am a vision keeper, a confidant, a holder of dreams. I am the best first reader you can have. I read with love, but also with a commercial eye.”

Your Message, Your Story

Our focus begins with you, so we can build a solid foundation to amplify your message—it’s your story. We spend time getting to know you and your deepest aspirations. We analyze your present platforms and identify long-view goals in the service of pinpointing how a book or other products fit into your higher purpose. Your book is one articulation of your overall message. Our unique methodology which focuses on passion, purpose, point of view, and product draws out the most essential and authentic concepts you carry and articulates your values and mission. With content being consumed in audio, digital, print, subscription-based courses, and other emerging formats, we identify the best medium for your message and architect a strategic blueprint to build an author brand that aligns with your true self, your business goals, your public persona, and your life’s work.
