Let me help you get your book into the world. Pick and choose the services that fit your needs, or customize a plan just for you.

My earliest reading memories are from grade school. I had a major fixation with horses, and the Black Stallion was a favorite. Then junior high came along and teenage hormones kicked in, and it was all about the Harlequin Romances. I have been hooked on books ever since.
I have a degree in Marketing and Business along with years of sales and customer service experience. I believe my greatest talent is thinking outside the box to find tools and ideas to improve a product’s market place position. I have taken this degree, experience and tenacity and focused it on the publishing industry to assist authors in becoming as successful as possible.
I also created an online book tour company in 2012 called I.O. Book Tours, and I utilize that knowledge and the company’s many connections and resources in tandem with Kimberly Kinrade and Daring Books Designs & Marketing. The two companies mesh so well together, much like PB&J.
