You can call me B.
You're also likely to call me Brannon, Branan, Brennan, Brandon, Brandy, Brenda, Britney, Branson, Brianna...
It's hard to get it wrong in a new way.
The good news is there's only one of me, and if you need help with your book, blog, or brainstorming, I'll answer to just about anything.
I want to see your content
(the way only you can move people)
come to life.
Stories are in my blood, and the thing is? I believe that's true for all of us. The trick is getting what you know and think and feel out of your head and onto paper in a way that connects with the people who need to hear it.
That’s why I primarily work with business owners and professionals to help them shape narrative-driven nonfiction that will connect with their audience, leave a legacy, and change the world.
How folks work with me...
Have an idea that won't leave you alone? From hashing out what emerged after a completed "shitty first draft" to brainstorming directions for a new book or blog that you're not sure how to get started—discovery is difficult in a vacuum. This is where we’ll niche down to a specific avatar, clear objectives for leveraging the completed project, the unique value proposition that will make your content stand out, and the overall structure that will move your audience. $500 for a 3 hour call + recording and takeaway materials.
Send me what you’re working on and we’ll hop on the phone for up to an hour to discuss and get you over the hump. We’ll work through drafting tools, address any revisions hiccups, help you overcome writer’s block, and more. Deliverables include the call recording + notes + a recommended path for you to edit that section or continue to draft confidently. $300 ad hoc | $1000/4 calls | $750 Deep Dive Dev adds in depth notes, line by line review of up to 15k words, and doubles call length.
This is for a completed draft that needs a full review. I'll read the manuscript as it is, then create a map for your revisions or an estimate for line level work. Deliverables for a diagnostic include an editorial assessment, the Editor’s 6 Core Questions completed, the first five scenes of your manuscript on the Story Grid spreadsheet to show movement of those scenes across ~14 levels of analysis, and two calls: one hour before I deliver the diagnostic and one hour a week later to answer any questions you might have. An eval is a complete read with notes on any gaps or recommended content edits plus a quote for a full line edit. $2000 diagnostic | $750 eval, can be applied toward line edit.

Thank you so much Brannan for making this an incredibly fun journey. I have felt held and guided and honored. What a wonderful balance you were able to keep—mining us for our content and knowledge, while being the pilot through the process!

Brannan—You're like a midwife who helped me give birth to my first baby. Breathe, breathe... PUSH! I'm grateful.
Brannan has been such a wonderful bridge for me. She has such a cool ability to recognize what I am struggling to understand and translate it in a new way that clicks. I am loving working and learning with her.
