I started my career working for magazines and presses. But, with the economy and the changing state of the book market, authors started having to do a whole lot more of the work themselves. It’s as much part of the job now as writing the book or finding an agent. Why would you hire me? I’ve been doing this in one form or another for six years in the publishing industry, and five years in retail. I’ve worked with Jeff VanderMeer, Scott Sigler, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Prime Books, Paizo Publishing’s novel line, and more. Publicity and communications are a touchy blend of science and art, and there is no sure formula for any project. My job is to work with you to find the formula that works for your project.
