Overview

Reviews (1)

Professional book publicist. Featured by Jane Friedman, Digital Book World and The Guardian. I own a self-publishing and PR company and have worked with over 300 authors thus far.

The most rewarding aspect to working as a book publicist is making a new author a success. I have been fortunate enough to work with some amazing emerging authors. I hope to work with even more through the Reedsy platform.

In addition to all my work with independent authors I have had the privilege of working with many large publishing houses. Consulting for them has allowed me to work with established authors. My role in these situations has been to augment sales even further.

Looking forward to working with some authors here on the Reedsy platform.
