Your right-hand for author and book publicity that needs to be completed on time, on budget, by a business professional.

 

Publishers today want an author with a "platform".  That means you come with your own marketing package:  website, Facebook followers, LinkedIN contacts - and that you actively schedule and release a stream of desirable information about genre, interests, appearances.  That platform is what I create or enhance and maintain with you.  Platform has no laurels to rest upon . . . we have to work on it every day to keep it alive and well.  If platform is a mystery to you, please carefully read "A Definition of Author Platform" by publishing and new media guru Jane Friedman.  

I’m a sales and marketing professional, with years of experience selling software, hardware, corporate training, and recently, publicizing authors and books.  My last corporate position was COO for The Business Channel, a division of Public Broadcasting Service in Alexandria, VA.  Then, high tech delivery of learning was my field.  In 2011, I retired for a year and came running back to the world of work – much more stimulating.
