📚 📚 📚

What if you could save weeks while conducting research for your book? 👀

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a way for you to research your next protagonist in a way that all the browsing, scrolling and reading you’re spending time on is actually leading to proper research results?

Good news.

Imagine if you actually utilised eyewitness accounts and archive images, old film clips and photo databases...

Could you then develop your book’s protagonists based on this historical material? Protagonists who not least for this reason come across as flesh-and-blood people and not (as is so often the case in historical novels) simply as stereotypical extras 👱 👴 prancing about against the historical backdrop?

Knowing where to find the best research materials can not only drastically cut down your work load — but also help you create an authentic protagonist. You can then write a story which is not only historically correct, but also thrilling, entertaining and moving.

Is it worth less than $150 (and that's not even what I charge) plus 75 minutes of your writing time to discover even 1 method of making sure you’re finding historical details, so that you can portray this person in a way which feels authentic (and historically correct!), let alone get 5 databases to instantly rummage and plunder for your research purposes?

If you search 1 of these databases, and you find a very special historical detail that you can actually use, or 2, or 3... will you then get a better understanding of who this character was, and write a better book? So that your agent will be thrilled, and your readers will say: “I feel like I actually KNOW them.”

Smarter (And Faster) Research For Your Book

I won’t waste your time during this 75-min intensive. This is what you get:

kreis autorenfoto 2 jpg small.jpg👉 Submit your 3 most pressing history-related research questions about your protagonist, or their time or setting.

👉 Then I'll conduct research for you. ✍ Expect to receive 3-5 resources, hand-picked for your purposes.

👉 During an online video call, I'll walk you through the resources I’ve found. They provide authentic, historical information that you can implement right after our call.

At the end of our time together, you will also briefly learn about a way to work with me and a small group, if you want to research your next protagonist more efficiently. You'll also receive — in case we can't tackle each and every aspect — a structured research roadmap, so that you know exactly how to proceed from here.
