About Me

I'm Ivy Nelson, and I'm primarily known for my work as a BDSM romance author. Now the theme of this business makes so much more sense, doesn't it? Over the past five years, I've written and published 30 novels and novellas. My publishing career has allowed me to make a respectable living and provide for my family while setting a schedule that works best for us. It really is the best job ever. Over the years, I've discovered that I love helping other authors reach their goals. I've edited for friends, designed covers for authors in shared worlds, and made graphics and teasers for countless others. With the help of a group of encouraging friends, I've decided to expand my services and help more people by making it a legitimate business.

I'll be keeping my calendar light at first, but as I determine what I'm capable of taking on, I'll open more slots! Check out each of the services above to see a full list of what I'm offering. I'm so excited to get to know you and your stories as we collaborate together to make it the best it can be and set you up for success.

About

Services

Below you will find a comprehensive list of the services we currently offer. Pricing is also included. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.

Brainstormig

From plot problems to marketing ideas, we can brainstorm anything you're feeling stuck on. We'll start the call with some quick questions to get oriented to the problem or project you want to work on, and go from there. Calls are a flat fee of $75 and they last half an hour, and everyone gets a free 10 minute intro call to see if we're a match. If you're enjoying a call, you can get an additional half hour for a discounted rate of $50. You can also book multiple calls for a small discount. This is especially good if you're drafting or working on a long-term project and want more support! 

I'm high ideation (if you're a strengths for writers fan) and that means I love coming up with new ideas, and my brain is always moving. No idea is too strange for me! But I also believe in getting to know how clients think and I love figuring out what works and doesn't work for them in order to make our calls as productive as possible.

Design

When I first started publishing books, I didn't have a lot of extra money for things like launch graphics, logos, or flatlays. But I still wanted them, so I taught myself Photoshop and Canva! Now, I make all my own covers, and most of my graphics. I do occasionally work with other designers because something is outside of my comfort zone, though.

 

And that's my way of saying, I'm not going to take your money if the concept you're proposing is outside of my skillset.

 

I think every indie author deserves beautiful graphics to support their marketing efforts. So that's what I'm mostly focused on with my graphics services. However, I am opening a couple of slots in my calendar to design contemporary covers. I will also have a number of premade cover sales throughout the year! All my other graphics services are listed below. I look forward to working with you!

I will be adding sticker design and other creative services later in 2024!

Editing

Have you finished your manuscript, and you're not sure what to do with it now? I've got you! I currently offer a couple of different editorial options, so read through your options, book a sample edit, and pick the package that fits your needs.

Aside from having a good understanding of story, I'm skilled at spotting inconsistencies, and minor errors as well. I've also got nearly two decades of experience in the BDSM community, and I'll offer notes on your use of kink when I edit, but I also offer separate kink/BDSM sensitivity reads.

Please note that at this time, I'm only editing manuscripts that fall under the contemporary romance umbrella. It can be any sub-genre, but I don't edit historical, sci-fi, or PNR romance, and I don't edit anything that isn't romance.
