Below are some examples of the kinds of services I provide. Each book is different, though, and that means every campaign is different, as well. I don't believe in the "one-size fits all" approach to publicity and marketing; I believe we work best when we work together to come up with a thoughtful, strategic campaign that is tailored to your project. What you see here can be customized to fit your exact publicity and marketing needs. 


Fees vary based on the specific plan that you choose to pursue.  Drop me a line, and we can chat about all the possible ways we can work together. I'm looking forward to connecting!
