Overview

Reviews (2)

I'm a book marketer working for the largest publishing company in the world and have experience with a range of authors in all genres. I specialize in social media, copy, and email. My specialty is in making a big splash with a small budget. In the past I've run social media campaigns across Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. In addition to paid advertising, I'm well versed in tactics for gaining organic reach and have an intimate understanding of the state of social media as it relates to the literary landscape. I have experience growing email lists, writing and creating monthly, weekly and one-off marketing emails and analyzing the results. In addition, I can help with choosing bisacs, writing copy, working on messaging and positioning for your book and more. I have experience across a range of titles and budgets, though my favorite genres to work on are literary fiction, non-fiction and women's fiction.
