Marlan Warren - Publicist

Los Angeles, CA, United States

As a publicist, I approach each book with consideration for the passion that created it and the audience that will best appreciate it.

Overview

As an independent publicist, I approach each book with consideration for the passion that created it and the audience that will best appreciate it. I craft each campaign according to the book's special qualities and intended readers. I am listed in The Midwest Book Review as a "trusted publicist" and Linked In named me in its list of top publicists found on its site. I have 10 years experience in publicity and six in book PR and marketing. My skills range from book packaging to launches to coordinating public appearances to building "book buzz" and "author platform" via media contacts and social media. I also design and maintain author websites, blogs and all forms of social media. Recently, I was the in-house publicist for Green Darner Press (YA, Children's Books, Adult Fiction/Nonfiction), Gemelli Press (Italian American nonfiction/fiction themes), and Kelli and Kelly Books for Kids. I also created the campaign for UK mystery author Celia Conrad.

All Storms Pass: the Anti-Meditations

Luke Benoit

ALL STORMS PASS; The Anti-Meditations is a different kind of meditation book. While there are some similarities with classic meditation books there are focused on tools and inspiration but also read like puzzles and beg for discussion. Some are hopeful and some pose darker questions about life, choices, who we have been and who we are becoming.
