Marketing Consultation with Tina K.

Book me for a 60-minute consultation to walk you through the book publishing or promotion process. Not sure if you want to self-publish, or pitch agents to traditionally publish? I can explain the steps necessary for each -- including the fees you can expect to pay.

I'll also share a go-to-market timeline. You may also use the session to pick my brain about book publicity and strategies. I've worked with publishing houses that include Harper Collins, Harper Collins Business, Columbia Teachers College Press, Llewellyn Press, Wiley and many authors who independently published. I understand what it takes to get your book discovered and sold.

Happy to provide references on request. Many authors call me because they are overwhelmed with options for publishing and promotion. I stop that overwhelm in its tracks. With even one call, I can cut through the clutter and put you on a path to publication or promotion. I do this work full-time.

I invite you to upload files for review in advance of our appointment. After our call, you'll have a checklist to take the next steps.

Topics covered:
o Launch Strategy and Timeline
o Marketing Plans for Your Genre
o Promotional Campaigns/Ad Ideas

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.

When you work with me, you'll get tremendous value because of my experience. If you have a full-time job, I work to promote your book or handle query letter submissions to help you obtain an agent. I'm also able to walk you through a strategic marketing plan that can vary depending on your budget. And you'll get other ideas to generate income.

Here's a quick outline of my skill set:

- help you find an agent
- write query letters
- author branding
- press kit creation
- book publicity
- Amazon ad creation
- review research
- author & book market positioning
- author book tours -- signings and booking (the U.S. mostly)
- author and business websites
- press releases - authors and brands

- mailing list set-up and list uploading to MailChimp, Constant Contact, and others
- formatting recommendations, vendors
- work with designers on your book cover
- Social media audits (I evaluate and polish your social media author profiles.)
- Social media content and calendar planning
- Basic business set-up to accept payments
- anything else you can't or don't care to do because you work full-time and want a life

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, 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.

    I recently enjoyed participating in a consulting session with Tina, an incredibly knowledgeable and talented freelancer. Her expertise in navigating the intricacies of the university press publication process was truly invaluable. Not only did she provide well-organized, actionable insights, but she also took the time to address each of my questions and concerns with patience and understanding. Tina's ability to break down complex concepts and tailor her advice to my specific needs made the experience both enlightening and enjoyable. I am extremely grateful for her guidance and would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of expert assistance with academic publishing. Thank you, Tina, for a phenomenal consulting experience!
