Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I'm a book marketing coach and author of The Savvy Book Marketer Guides. Drawing on my 15 years of publishing experience and degree in marketing, I specialize in developing marketing plans for nonfiction books and helping authors learn how to promote their books online.

Before starting my own business, I spent 13 years managing book production, marketing, fulfillment, and bottom-line profitability at Hoover's Business Press.

My husband and I live on a small ranch near Austin, Texas, where we raise goats and cattle. I love to travel, especially to Europe.

I invite you to join me on other networks:
