I am a book publicist with experience working both at a traditional book publisher and as a freelancer. I’m currently helping indie authors launch their premiere books.

I support my author clients through every step of the book promotion process, from book blurbs and Amazon reviews to social media strategy and book signings. Services I offer include:

• Media kit creation
• Strategic counsel
• Outreach to print, broadcast, and online media
• Outreach to online influencers

• Submissions to book reviewers
• Blog tours
• Book signings
• Reactive media relations
• Book launch parties
• Event planning assistance
• Media monitoring
• Bylined article submissions
• Speaking engagement opportunities
• Book award submissions

The best book PR plan starts months before a book’s publication date, so please feel free to reach out to me even if you are just finishing up your first draft. The earlier I start, the more buzz I can build for you!
