PLATINUM BOOK PR LEADS NEW AUTHORS TO THE ROAD OF SUCCESS
(Craryville, N.Y., October 19, 2007) So...your novel is on the verge of publication. And what exactly should a new author do now? Some inexperienced authors lack the fundamental knowledge to devise a plan to reach their targeted reading audiences. They are under the impression that their job ends with the final word of the manuscript. They are also suspended in the illusion that their publisher will furnish them with a promotional budget, when publishers only stand behind their cash cows—the Terry McMillans and J.K. Rowlings of the book world. Publishers place unproven authors on a bookshelf with hopes the title will build a promising momentum before they take financial action. Platinum Book PR says the answer to the question is simple: "Authors, you must participate in your book's success by employing an independent publicist who can make your title popular.
" "Writing the book is the preliminary part of our jobs," says Oasis, editor-in-chief of Platinum Book PR and author of Push Comes To Shove, (Urban Lifestyle Press, December 2007). "Marketing our books is the biggest and most important task we authors face," Oasis explains. Platinum Book PR is a full-service marketing and promotional firm that specializes in African-American and Hispanic literature. The Platinum crew has mastered the science of helping authors move their titles from bookshelves to cash registers. "I have created marketing and promotional campaigns for several authors," says Dawnny Ruby, Platinum Book PR's owner and senior publicist. "My current clients include W. Ivan Wright, Rahsaan Ali, D.S. White, Stacy Stephen Harris, Shaun Mathis and Reason. It also includes the grade-school authors of The Key To Life anthology who are writing to fund their college tuitions," says Ruby. In her ten-plus years involvement with the publishing industry, she has formed alliances with numerous inside key players. "I use my contacts to bring my clients within reach of their readerships," she explains.
Platinum Book PR understands that books and their authors have unique personalities. Platinum Book PR's success rate is attributed to their method of involving authors in the creation of their marketing packages, which results in a campaign that complements and enhances author's and their book's personalities. "There is no need to feel powerless, abandoned by your publisher, or uncertain of what step to take next with the Platinum staff on your team," says Andrea Hinton, acquisition editor of Man Up magazine and CEO of Docuversion.com, a full-service editing firm.
