Book Publicity

I am the founder and President of FSB Associates and have worked in book publicity and marketing for all of my professional life. I started in the marketing departments of John Wiley & Sons and Henry Holt. In 1995, I founded FSB, one of the first firms to specialize in online publicity for books. 

Alan Alda Since its inception, FSB Associates has executed more than two thousand successful book publicity campaigns. It seems almost like a dream that so much time has passed and so many amazing authors have trusted us with their books and reputations.

Author Websites

Writing a book can be difficult. Your website doesn't need to be. Try Pub Site.

I am very excited about being the co-founder of Pub Site, the new, easy-to-use website platform built for author websites.

Designs, layouts, and features are all created with books and authors in mind which means you can have a website up and running in no time with either your domain name or ours. Import your blogs, add video, and mailing list sign-up forms easily. It is free to set up and just $19.99 a month which includes hosting.

You can build it yourself or we can build it for you. Every author needs a website, Pub Site offers the cost-effective resource we've been waiting for.  Get Started.   

 

Marketing Advice and Consulting

I love helping authors reach their readers. During one-on-one consulting sessions, we take the necessary steps needed to build a successful brand online which helps them sell more books, and get better marketing opportunities. Plus it's fun to work with me. Don't believe me? Check out the testimonials.

I have also written a book called Online Marketing for Busy Authors: A Step-by-Step Guide, published by Berrett-Koehler. I am excited that I can now share my advice, tips, and shortcuts with more than my clients. I'm proud of the book and got some good reviews which, as you know, authors really crave. 

To learn more about my journey, read my 2020 profile in Publisher's Weekly. I've also done a lot of other media, but one of the toughest interviews was with Dean Rotbart on Monday Morning Radio about book publicity and the publishing industry.
