I currently run my own social media company in Orange County, CA. After eight years of marketing for tech, e-commerce, and other online businesses, I decided to launch my own author career. After successfully self-publishing my debut thriller, and subsequently selling the film rights, I've begun to loan out my marketing skills to other traditional and indie authors.

With millions of titles on the market, it is my job to create a buzz-worthy campaign that gets people excited. By leveraging the power of social media, email marketing, and paid digital campaigns, we can get people talking about your book.

So whether you have a traditional publisher or your launching your first indie novel, we can develop a strategy to get people talking, and most importantly, reading your book.

Your Perfect Nursery

I assisted interior designer, Naomi Alon, create a non-fiction book proposal and marketing strategy to query literary agents. Over the course of six months, we were able to land her an agent and publishing deal with Simon & Shuster. I also meet with Naomi twice a month to assist and consult on her marketing strategy, which includes, Instagram, Pinterest, and email marketing campaigns.

She Died Famous

By focusing our launch on Instagram, we were able to generate a great deal of buzz during (and prior to) launch. This included a coordinated Instagram book tour and an exciting Murder Mystery Book Club Challenge, where participants in each book club all guessed who killed the main character at the end of Part II.

In conjunction with this, we focused on lead generation. Using Facebook ads, we built an email list of 4,000, which we used to promote sales on Amazon, as well as giveaways to grow the follower count on Instagram.

Thus far, the book has surpassed all sales goals and the film rights have recently been optioned!
