I began working with Marissa years ago when we were both starting our publishing journey. I’m the classic introverted writer type, so as much as I love my work and want to share it, I had trouble with the outreach and marketing aspects of the indie author path.
Marissa changed all that. Like me, she’s introverted, but marketing is truly her calling. She understands the book world and keeps her fingers on its ever-changing pulse. And did I mention her dedication to educating herself? Each time the market or algorithms change, she’s on top of it, focusing on how to fit a new tactic into her strategy.
She walked me through the all-important newsletter, ads, and how to effectively reach out to influencers. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without her dogged attention and insight!
