What I Do…

I help authors spend less time marketing and more time writing by teaching a proven method of platform building that is simple: you don’t have to be everywhere, just the right places doing the right things. I lean on my 20+ years of experience as a successful marketer to help you figure out how to sell more books and build raving fans. I currently am not doing any speaking engagements or podcast appearances.

Listen to my award-winning podcast…

The Smarty Pants Book Marketing Podcast is not currently adding new episodes but there is a wealth of information in our three seasons currently published. My motto is, “less is more.” Learn what to keep, what to quit, and what to question. In 2018, the podcast was chosen as one of the top six book marketing podcasts out there by Digital Book World. Take a listen. You’ll be glad you did.

Listen to my new podcast…

In June 2019 I launched The Women Finishing Well podcast with my co-host Diane Bradley as part of the launch of a new ministry for Christian women called–you guessed it–Women Finishing Well. It’s aimed at Baby Boomers who want to finish well and leave a legacy of faith. Give it a listen. We are also on Facebook if you want to check us out there.
