I help authors of all levels achieve success in promoting titles on Amazon and beyond. I have unique expertise in that I am an ex-Amazonian having worked on the platform for 8+ years where I built out the book ads program. I am current a contributor to Mark Dawson’s Self Publishing Formula 'Ads for Authors' course.

I understand that an author’s focus should be on their writing, not trying to navigate the ads industry. My goal is to simplify the process, explain the fundamentals, and help you advertise effectively. I believe in independent authors, I believe in advertising, and I believe I can help clients succeed. In addition to optimizing or even getting started with ads, I can help build the right on and off-Amazon strategy to get your books discovered by the right readers.
