Public Relations is one of the most effective ways to build on a book marketing strategy, and create a solid online reputation and broader publicity beyond your local base. If done correctly, a well thought-out PR campaign can transform the future profitability of an author.
Applied properly, PR can give you the ability to get the message out there into a wider arena and explain why your book is read-worthy and relevant, in what is often a saturated and highly competitive market.
Alongside being an experienced editor, I am also a trained journalist with many media contacts and years of experience in gaining valuable PR exposure for a range of authors. In particular, I gained much needed publicity across national press, local press and radio for June Taylor and Sarah Naughton.
I have also applied my journalistic skills preparing dynamic press releases for businesses of all sizes and capabilities which appeared in well - known publications such as Time Out and The London Evening Standard.
My Book PR service will ensure your novel gets the maximum media exposure, so you increase your sales and position as an up-and-coming author and a publishing industry 'one' to watch.
I will write a dynamic and arresting press release around the themes of your book alongside an enticing author biography. Once you have chosen three relevant media outlets, I will personally contact them and submit your press release on your behalf.
This service has a set price of £495.50
What the Book PR Service includes:
• A dynamic and eye-catching press release on the subject of your novel.
• A carefully written and highly enticing author biography.
• A press release and author biography to three media outlets of your choice, submitted by me on your behalf.
Shelley is a tremendously gifted editor. We first met at the Eve White Literary Agency and together worked on my YA novel Lovely me, Lovely You. It was runner-up in the 2011 Times/Chicken House Children's Fiction competition.
My second book, Adult psychological thriller Losing Juliet, was published in November 2016 by HarperCollins. I know for certain that I would never have got this deal if Shelley had not been involved in the editing. Her input was invaluable.
Working with her is a joy as she is able to read the author as well as the manuscript. She has a light but thorough touch which helps bring about significant improvement with each draft. (Yes there will be more than one!)
Through her influential PR skills and many connections, Shelley has also supported me in promoting Losing Juliet via social media. For example, she helped set up an interview with Liz Green on BBC Radio Leeds.
Her goal is to make you into the best writer you can be. She's lovely, but don't expect her to go easy on you!
