What is the purpose and mission of your business?
The company started out of a desire to build my portfolio in copywriting and social media strategy through freelance contracts to try and land a job in-house. Nearly sixteen years later, it’s grown into a business that I’m proud of that focuses on providing education and empowerment to phenomenal authors all over the world.
I believe in paying it forward through guidance, coaching and helping authors discover how to share their stories in ways that they can be proud of, confident in and empowered by. Making a positive impact with your audiences starts with your willingness to share your story and reach out to build the right relationships with different media to reach that audience, and it’s my mission to help authors discover the best ways to do that utilizing PR.
Why is writing or reading important?
I grew up with a lifelong love of reading, everything from fairy tales and Encyclopedia Brown to angsty romances by Lurlene McDaniel and parlayed that into writing. I’ve spent over twenty years writing everything from poetry to fan fiction for different fandoms because I find it cathartic, inspiring, and adventurous. My love of reading has given me knowledge that I wouldn’t otherwise have and it’s made me want to write my own adventures, it’s why I’m currently working on the first of what I hope will be many romance novels (I currently have 4 ideas outside of this current one), along with a crime thriller idea and possible sci-fi ideas as well.
What are your future plans for the business?
My vision is for my company to continue to grow, giving me the opportunity to educate, engage and empower fiction and nonfiction authors on an international scale through workshops, more conference keynotes and festival appearances. I’m also working on my first nonfiction PR book that will outline why PR is powerful, how authors can make it work for them and how to develop and launch a successful campaign, step by step through each building block. I want to provide as many avenues as possible for authors to receive that education, and empowerment through personalized guidance, and support. It’s why I also have future plans for more workshops and a possible membership to come.
