Melissa Ximena Golebiowski - Marketer

New York, NY, United States

When I get to know you, others will too. Literary Marketing & Publicity Consultant based in New York City.

Overview

I'm all about authentic marketing and helping authors connect their work with the most resonant audience. I consult with the author and review their work to identify key demographics and major themes that contribute to their marketing outreach. After these are identified, we can create an educated and personalized marketing strategy based on the authors desire. I have consulted on and executed e-mail campaigns, social media, website design, marketing material, book tours, speaking engagements, and advertising platforms both in print and new media.

Work experience

Independent Marketing Consultant

Self

March, 2015 – Present (over 1 year)

I have assisted individual authors and literary organizations with their audience and outreach. Past clients have included ALTA (American Literary Translation Association) and Thought Catalog Books. I have also assisted theatre companies and producers with marketing of their shows in New York City such as The Amoralists Theatre Company and a production of Craig Wright's The Pavilion.

I am currently developing unique marketing tactics for Matt Sumell's "Making Nice", Carmiel Banasky's "The Suicide of Claire Bishop", and Mike Heppner's "We Came All This Way." I am also currently working with The Prose Bowl, a new reading series for emerging fiction writers in New York City.

Lucinda Literary

March, 2015 – Present (almost 2 years)

Lucinda Literary is one of very few hybrid marketing and literary agencies in today’s evolving publishing landscape. We use a multi-pronged approach—representation, editorial consulting, traditional publicity, online marketing, and lecture events—to help authors identify and reach the broadest range of readers possible. Through our website, newsletter, and social media platforms we touch an audience of 14,000 people interested in literature, with whom we interact regularly.

Unlike many traditional agencies or public relations firms, we have not been onlookers, but have actively experienced the rise of new media. We are instinctively familiar and knowledgeable with the myriad forms of promotion available through the Internet. Lucinda’s distinct experience on both the corporate side of online marketing and publicity offers our clients insights into all aspects of the publishing process. Plugged into new media, but maintaining active relationships with traditional media, our greatest value is simply to be tireless, creative, and energetic advocates for books.
