Abby had a great book idea. Actually, she had more than that, with solid foundations for a middle-fiction generation-defining sci-fi trilogy swimming around in her head. She needed a midwife, someone who could help refine those ideas and deliver them to the page. She needed someone who could help her communicate to editors and publishers for that short, agonizing time before her work had a chance to speak for itself. We provided standard services, like cover art and a few exciting twists to the main plot. We also went the extra mile – or, maybe, the extra parsec – designing the tattoos which the space tribes in her series used to mark membership. Graphics of those tats could be distributed with the book, or at press events, and that would give everyone a chance to really engage with Abby’s universe.
