The Story Alignment

YOUR STORY MATTERS.

MAKE IT COUNT.

The story you care about is missing something,
but you don't know what.

Struggling to finish your first draft? Have you revised yourself into a corner? Did your beta readers complain that "something feels off"?

And now you're thinking about ditching your draft and starting over from scratch?

Please don't do that. Your story isn't broken; it just needs a Story Alignment.

After your Story Alignment call, you’ll have a clear vision about how to nudge those "broken" pieces back into place so your story flows seamlessly.

Story Alignment is …

  • A one-on-one conversation via Skype.

  • A source for expert feedback — instantly!

  • Useful for any genre.

  • Introvert friendly.

Story Alignment is not

  • A developmental edit. No manuscript needed!

  • An educational program. You’ll definitely learn something new, but this is a consulting service.

  • A story creation service. Authors should already have a story in mind before the call.


"Some people just get it on a primal level. Claire Taylor is a member-in-good-standing of that tribe. I like to call them Story Alchemists. 

She's able to decipher the lead weighing your story down to transform it into the gold that magnetizes your ideal readers to the story they needed to read from you!

Claire Taylor is a story ninja. Her ideas and story solutions are innovative and super helpful. I haven’t ever consulted with anyone who could jump into a story as fast and thoroughly as Claire. She helped me work through a story point that had hung me up for weeks, and she did it in thirty minutes. Like I said, ninja.

-Jami Albright, author of the best-selling series Brides on the Run.  


Story is her superpower

Claire Taylor is bad at a lot of things, but storytelling is not one of them. In fact, she's quite good at it. 

With over a dozen top-selling humorous novels published (and many more on the way), she can write the crap out of a funny book.

She has professionally edited 200+ fiction manuscripts, with knowledge and experience in every stage of the editing process from outline evaluation to proofreading. Her passion is telling a meaningful and entertaining story that invites multiple reads, and she loves helping others achieve that outcome.

Your story will always be yours.

A Story Alignment isn't a hostile takeover of your creative vision. Instead, through Claire's insightful questioning and suggestions, you'll wrap up the call feeling like you knew the answer the whole time - and you did! Unlocking it is always the tricky part.

The creative solution you leave with will feel natural, maybe even obvious (after the fact, of course). It will resonate with you and your story. And the credit for pulling off a fantastic tale readers read over and over again . . . will be all yours.
