What Do We Do?

We focus on creating a comprehensive plan to STAND OUT.

We specialize in blogger outreach, cross-promotional opportunities, strategic development, marketing strategies, advertising placement and creation, graphic creation and placement, and simply putting together the best possible plan - and then executing it - for each client. We also help authors between releases with planning out sales, designing new covers, and coming up with creative and new ideas to build buzz for your backlist. We also offer public relations, messaging, and media outreach assistance. 

We work with you to increase your brand awareness, outreach, advertising, newsletter creation & optimization, social media management and comprehensive plans to elevate your brand to ensure that you're sending the right message to your audience.
