I'm a book marketing professional with an MBA in marketing as well as an MA in Publishing from University College London. I have years of experience in all aspects of marketing, including content marketing, email marketing, market research, social media, and communications.
At this point, I am mostly available for help with marketing plans, including recommendations for strategy and optimization.
I have a special focus in nonfiction genres including business, self-help, and memoir. I also have experience in multiple fiction genres (YA, children's, and women's fiction among them).
My approach is non-traditional, as I worked in marketing and sales for years in various industries before moving into the dynamic book publishing world several years ago. I've found many skills translate well to publishing: client relationship management, project management, online marketing, content marketing, etc.
Overall, I strive to bring a fresh and innovative perspective to my work with each and every client.
I am a freelance consultant to authors and small publishers, with a focus on digital marketing, social media, communications, platform building, and market research. I am also a book coach who can provide recommendations on the most optimal publishing routes for authors looking to optimize their sales and visibility. Experience includes roles as:
--Marketing and Communications lead for an independent publishing house
--Book Marketing Manager for multiple authors under contract with a hybrid publishing company
--Book Publicist/VA with a book publicity firm, serving as lead publicist and relationship manager for one of its largest partners
Work in partnership with an independent publisher as the lead relationship manager. Assigned as relationship manager by Aurora Publicity, with whom I'm under contract. Advised 6 authors. Provided branding and platform building recommendations, social media guidance, and assistance with email marketing.
