I have over a decade of experience successfully marketing books and authors via social media. Using the techniques described in my ebook A Brief Introduction to Internet Publicity, I built, promoted, and managed content delivery for high-trafficked blogs by bestselling authors Phil Town and “The Sleep Doctor” Michael Breus. In the years since, I’ve coached nearly 100 authors in social media marketing techniques. (See testimonials below.)

Mad Dog House: Book Launch
Mad Dog House: Book LaunchThunder Lake Press hired me to write a series of ads: a print ad for the mystery magazine "The Strand" (circulation: 55,000) and banner ads for literary websites including The Rumpus, BookTrib, Bull Men's Fiction, and Goodreads. In addition to writing and placing these ads, I secured the author a front page placement on Scribd.com (alongside a new book by Kathy Reichs) and ran a successful Kindle Free Day campaign. Mad Dog House went on to become a Kindle store bestseller and a Finalist for the 2012 ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award (Thriller & Suspense). Campaigns for the author's follow-up books focused on combining limited-time price promotions with email services like BookBub. The author's second book, Love Gone Mad, received over 53,000 downloads.
