Julie Schoerke is self-employed
Julie founded JKS Communications as a general PR firm in 2000 and narrowed the focus of the firm in 2005 to specialize in marketing and promotion for books, authors and small publishers. In 2016 Marissa DeCuir, an eight year veteran of the firm, became President. The hallmark of the firm has been to be a disruptive force in the publishing industry by being innovator on so many fronts including years ago the first virtual book tours and being a sponsor of the first official Book Blogger Convention connected with Book Expo of America (BEA). And, creating some of the first book trailers and videos and then being on the forefront of creative distribution of those videos outside of on-line marketing. In September, 2016, JKS Communications announced the strategic partnerships with several new companies including a high tech start-up specializing in analytic tools for authors and publishers.
