Why Choose My Services? 

Simply put: I have the credentials, career, and experience to get the job done. 

I know first hand that navigating publishing and your career as an author can be a challenge. Many people don't know where to start and most of us at one point or another, get stuck. My coaching sessions can help guide you with author branding, career advice and more. Whether you need a social media audit and strategy, need to navigate an online PR nightmare, or just need to step up your online presence, I'm here to help! I help writers at all levels, from those published many times over, to debuts, to those who are just getting started on their querying journey. 
With over ten years in the publishing industry, working both behind the scenes with self published authors and in my own career as a traditionally published best selling author, I have the expertise and vision to help authors create a powerful online and real world presence. Using visuals and a social media platform that highlights your personality and skills, I will be able to help you grow a following, garner interest in your work, and help you stand out in the oversaturated online writer community. With guidance in everything from cover reveals, to every day posts and how to handle your first in person author signing or panel, I will be there to make sure you have the tools to make the best of every appearance and event. Navigating a publishing career alone can be a huge challenge, but with my help, we can create a compelling and fun brand that will help you stand out from the crowd.
