Testimonials – Authors

blackflowerswhitelies-cover-final

Yvonne Ventresca, Black Flowers, White Lies and Pandemic (YvonneVentresca.com):
Working with Rebecca for the second time to promote BLACK FLOWERS, WHITE LIES was a great experience, as I expected after the wonderful job she did with PANDEMIC. She’s detail-oriented, thorough, and continued to follow up on pending opportunities, even after the campaign officially ended. You never have to worry about loose ends with Rebecca. She’s a fantastic publicist!


Cover-ValLyn Miller-Lachmann, Surviving Santiago and Gringolandia (LynMillerLachmann.com):

Rebecca worked closely with my publisher’s marketing department to maximize exposure for my new novel. Through her efforts, SURVIVING SANTIAGO showed up on major publishing industry sites and high traffic blogs with a focus on popular culture. She also targeted Latino media, and was able to have  GRINGOLANDIA, my previous companion novel, included in most reviews.

Rebecca made sure that the novel found its place as an entertaining read that also makes readers more aware of the world.


Copy of SeashellDianne Ochiltree, It’s a Seashell Day (DianneOchiltree.com):
Rebecca is the first person I call when it’s time to assemble an upcoming book’s promotion team. She’s the kind of PR professional every author needs: savvy, creative, enthusiastic, precise, and thorough. She knows how to communicate effectively with both your publisher’s in-house publicity staff and the media. She’s been a cheerleader for my books throughout several promotional campaigns already, and I will be sure to call her again for future titles.


AWorkofArt-medium

Melody Maysonet, A Work of Art (MelodyMaysonet.com):
Working with Rebecca, I knew my young adult book was in good hands. Not  only did A WORK OF ART get reviewed on some high-profile blogs, but she  also arranged author interviews on sites that target YA readers and  educators. She created a professional press kit, offered tips for my website,  showed me how to get the most out of social media, and even helped plan my  book-launch party. Moreover, Rebecca gave me the confidence I needed to  continue with my own marketing efforts. 


Ordinary BasilWiley Miller, Ordinary Basil: Attack of the Volcano Monkeys (creator of Non Sequitur comic strip):
 There are standards, there are high standards and there are Rebecca Grose  standards. If you don’t care about getting the best, choose either one of the  first two. All you will ever get from Rebecca is intelligence, integrity and  talent, not in that order, but all at once in equal proportions.

 


Four Secrets coverMargaret Willey, Four Secrets (MargaretWilley.com):
Rebecca Grose’s expertise was crucial to my re-entry into the young adult market. She created a press kit, helped me with social media venues, got me started on Goodreads and suggested improvements for my website. She arranged online interviews and blog reviews.  She worked with booksellers to set up school visits and gave me advice about future school events.  
Her focused publicity efforts for FOUR SECRETS definitely increased its visibility and impact. Plus her enthusiasm and chutzpah is contagious and it gave me the confidence to try some things I haven’t done before as an author.

Hiring her to help promote FOUR SECRETS was money well-spent. I hope to work with Rebecca again and highly recommend her.
