I typically work with authors about 3-4 months. Two months prior to launch and two months after the launch of your book. My forte is working with Pre-Order campaigns to be sure we can find your target audience and get book reviews in place for Launch Day. During the Pre-Order period, we can lay the groundwork to set your book up for success and create steady growth during the first month after Launch. As we work together, I create duplicable business systems and processes to not only help you sell one book but to build your audience. When you have found your audience and have them consistently signing up to hear about future works, you are well on your way to making writing your career.
For the past 15 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with the Big 5 Publishers as well as thousands of authors to help build platforms and increase book sales.
Some of the publishers I've worked with include:
Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, and Macmillian.
Exemplary titles I've promoted include:
Janet Evanovich 'Takedown Twenty' & 'Smokin Seventeen', Bret Easton Ellis 'Less Than Zero', Sophie Kinsella 'Twenties Girl', 'The Shopaholic Series' & 'Mini Shopaholic', James Rollins 'Sigma Force', Jennifer Weiner 'Good In Bed', Michael Connelly 'The Lincoln Lawyer', Diana Gabaldon 'The Outlander Series', Suze Orman 'The Money Class', Jay-Z 'Decoded', Katie Couric 'The Best Advice I Ever Got', Jane Fonda 'Prime Time', Dhani Jones 'The Sportsman', Brad Thor 'Full Black', and Lee Child 'Worth Dying For'.
Individual authors I’ve recently worked with include:
Dr. Bridget Walker, Ph.D. 'Anxiety Relief for Kids' [Non-Fiction], Erin Watt 'Paper Princess' [Young Adult Fiction], Angela Fristoe 'Winter Souls' [Paranormal], Bella Andre - Multiple Titles including: 'The Way You Look Tonight', 'Kissing Under The Mistletoe', 'It Must Be Your Love', 'From This Moment On', 'One Perfect Night', 'The Look of Love', 'Tempt Me Like This', 'The Wedding Gift', and 'I Only Have Eyes For You' [Romance], Vivian Arend 'All Fired Up' [Romance], Bethany Claire 'Love Beyond Time' [Historical Romance], and Janel Gradowski 'Banana Muffins & Mayhem' [Mystery].

Riffle is a great service and simply gets the job done - in the world of publishing, there is a lot of snake oil and gems are hard to come by. I highly recommend Riffle and it's been a contributor to my continued success in publishing.
