Hi, if you're reading my profile, the best way to work with me is to offer $99 for a 1.5-hour consultation. Use the time to "pick my brain" about book publishing or for promotion strategies before and after publishing. Visit tina koenig dot com to schedule a consultation or email tina at tina koenig dot com. And check out my new book How to Self-Publish Like A Pro.
Epub or PDF of book included with a consultation.
As part of the consultation, I provide:
- a free example book marketing plan
- timing for a launch schedule
- a list of book review services
You may also purchase my new book How to Self-Publish Like A Pro on Amazon.com.
My newest service is setting up Amazon advertising.
My book clients have been interviewed/appeared here: WVLT Writer's Block, NBC NEWS, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, CBS, KING5 (Seattle), The Independent (UK), the Montel Williams' show Let's Be Blunt, The Atlantic, Refinery29 (Vice Media), Readers' Digest The Healthy, and others. I pitch to the highest-level contacts, including NPR. And yes, if your book is good enough, I'll pitch Oprah for you. I also target specialized segments like business, health/wellness, romance, and niche markets like equestrian, and more.
If you are an author or publisher, please contract here for the book publishing or promotion consultation at $99. I will accept that offer right away. In return, you will receive 90 minutes to discuss your writing goals and a marketing plan. You may hire me for additional projects after that based on agreed-upon rates. That way meet each other before working together. And you'll get a realistic idea of what the book publishing and sales landscape looks like.
Before our call, please upload your book's PDF, plus a media kit (if you have one), and website links so I can familiarize myself with your work.

Here's a bit more detail if you're not sold yet!
I have a 360-degree grasp of integrative public relations and marketing for books and major brands. I book authors into libraries, bookstores, and alternative venues throughout the U.S. as well as promote to online, print, radio, and television.
I have strengths in many areas of writing, marketing, and communications but clients really love my crisp, creative writing as well as my ability to make complex ideas and/or instructions easy to understand. I also like to be funny.
I love helping authors, businesses, and non-profits grow followings and sell books and products. I also enjoy creating templates and documents that set standards in business and developing communications plans for others to follow. A typical example would be a brand guidelines document or social media policy for an organization.
Over the years, I’ve written hundreds of press releases, corporate communications documents, policy documents, letters, and memos that are clear, concise, and error-free. I've developed content and editorial calendars and managed social media platforms that included Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for both government and private institutions.
Some of the consulting work that I do involves helping authors and businesses decide which website platform to choose. I've built and continue to run several websites, so my consulting is based on a hands-on application of platforms and experience. I'm also an expert-level writer & editor.
