Overview

I'm the Marketing and Sales Director at Cornell University Press. I've been in book marketing for more than 14 years. I love finding the best way to market and sell a book to as many people as possible.

I'm a big idea, marketing strategy kind of person. I'm into content marketing and experiential marketing.

I want to change how nonfiction books are marketed. I'm looking for new ways to do this all the time. I want to push the boundaries of what nonfiction book marketing means.

I've worked on trade books, children's books, deeply academic books, and everything in between. I'd like to help you and your book find your audience and market and then sell as many copies as possible.

I've got lots of experience working on overall strategy, email and website campaigns, social media campaigns, publicity and media efforts, metadata optimization, branding, and more.

I love this stuff and want to put it all into effect for you and your book!
