KURT’S SERVICES

MANUSCRIPT CONSULTATION SERVICES

Kurt’s love of literature began with Marvel’s Spider-Man comic books as a child and has grown with and within him into an affectionate affair with many of the Greats of Classic Literature, as well as with many of the Greats, both Known and Unknown, of Genre Fiction. His penchant for editing and proofing began as a child with the errors he would find on the backs of cereal boxes he would read while eating his breakfast. To this day, his uncanny knack for finding typos remains (except in his own writing, of course, where they forever elude him most effectively).

Kurt couples his lifelong love for reading, writing, and editing with an undergraduate degree in English and a graduate degree in Human Relations to offer the following Manuscript Consultation Services to Independent Authors, Students, Business Executives, and any other Writer-in-Need who would like to develop a Story Idea or Requirement into a Manuscript or prepare a Manuscript for Publication.

Testimonials

Be it life experience, training, or simply natural ability that allows Kurt Brindley to home into what works and what doesn’t in a piece of writing, it is an editorial skill that is much needed in a field of activity that is intrinsically subjective and where it is all too easy, despite one’s best efforts, to fool oneself as to what one has achieved. As a proven friend of independent writers, he has a track record of doing what one expects from a friend — a fair assessment of one’s efforts and ongoing support in fine-tuning the results. Having not only been at the receiving end of his critiques but also exercised my own upon Kurt’s publications, I am reassured that his is a sensibility that separates the literary wheat from the prosaic chaff whose presence is perhaps the worst sin that we writers commit.

– PAUL XYLINIDES, author of THE WILD HORSES OF HIROSHIMA

 



 

Kurt Brindley’s sharp eye and cogent editorial suggestions were a tremendous help in getting my self-published book Hawser to a professional level. He has a thorough understanding of grammar as well as excellent proofreading abilities, catching errors that other editors missed. Most of all, Kurt is not afraid to make suggestions about story arc and continuity that can help make a good story great. I heartily recommend his services.

– J HARDY CARROLL, author of HAWSER

KURT’S MOVIE

LEAVE: A Short Film

It is 1994 and the US military, while thick into the implementation of a highly controversial policy authorizing women more combat-related opportunities, including assignments on warships, is on the verge of war with Haiti. All the while, onboard a warship that is part of the battlegroup preparing to attack the hapless island nation, a roughhewn sailor comfortable in the old navy ways learns that his mother is sick. However, his efforts to be with her in her time of need are complicated by both the looming war and the unwanted influx of the first female sailors to his ship…

LEAVE, A Short Film


THEY WOULD RATHER GO TO WAR THAN ALLOW
FEMALE SAILORS TO INVADE THEIR SHIP
