I'm a freelance literary consultant who provides a variety of services for authors and publishers. I hold a Masters of Book Publishing degree from Portland State University, and during the five years of my publishing career have worked with companies like Kickstarter, Dark Horse Comics, and Catapult Press. I was also formerly an acquisitons editor with Ooligan Press, and an associate editor managing over 30 titles at Oni Press.
Whether you're working on a graphic novel or memoir, TTRPG supplement or novel, you've landed in the right place for your digital, design, and editorial publishing needs—a one-stop shop to help you reach the finish line, no matter where you are in your process.
Desiree not only helped me with my first book deal, they helped me navigate the janky world of comics publishing, introduced me to my agent, and basically shepherded me into comics professionalism. They're a gem, publishing is lucky to have them!
It's been personally inspiring to me to reach higher and be more reflective while working with Desiree. I enjoy how frank Desiree can be while remaining respectful. I really felt like she was a personal advocate for me and [my book].
Desiree has done so much cool work for more than a few publishers, and is amazing at her job. She's also my editor for a Secret Project, which means I can confirm: she's fantastic, and is worth a look if/when she opens her commissions.
