We are firm believers that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Our goal is to help to bring all authors up to the same standard. We know, first-hand, how much marketing and self-promotion authors are expected to do these days, and how overwhelming the growing social media platforms can be. Let us help you get your feet wet and start navigating it with confidence. Or, if you’re already familiar with the platforms you want, let us show you how to use them more effectively.
