Some lovely things that lovely people have said about my work

Marketing & Publicity

Karen is a rare breed; passionate about books and very creative while also being highly professional, thorough and efficiently organised.
She has done wonders for publicising my second novel, Herself Alone in Orange Rain, in just one month – setting up a blog tour, securing reviews and sending out press releases and all for an extremely reasonable fee.  I will definitely be back for more of her services for book three.

Tracey Iceton

Author of "Herself Alone in Orange Rain" and "Green Dawn at St Enda's"

Karen is a superb publicist, always willing to put in time beyond the necessary.
I feel she gave my new novel The Woman in the Shadows that extra reach that has allowed it to find its readers. Her knowledge and skills base as regards marketing in the publishing world has been impressive.

Carol McGrath

Author of "The Daughters of Hastings" trilogy and "The Woman In The Shadows"

Karen’s enthusiasm, creative flair and confidence is incredibly infectious.
From her ability to make contacts everywhere she goes to her having a straight forward answer to all marketing & publicity queries, she is so good at what she does.

Kate Ellis

Karen is creative, energetic, enthusiastic, collaborative, and a top notch communicator with bags of commitment.
But best of all? She loves authors and books.

Laura Wilkinson

Karen really has her finger on the Social Media and publicity pulse. During the time we worked together I was really grateful for her help, skill and expertise in promoting my novels.

Karen King

Author of "The Cornish Hotel By The Sea" and "I Do - Or Do I?"

I’ve had the great pleasure to work with Karen over the past few months. She saw my book reach #2 in two different Amazon categories. You can’t ask for better than that! (Maybe #1, but we’re working on that! )

Kirsten McKenzie

Author of "Fifteen Postcards" and "The Last Letter"

Event Chairing

Having the event chaired by Karen meant that I was able to relax. She provided engaging questions and was so friendly, chatty and calm on the day.
Definitely recommended.

Eloise Williams

Author of "Gaslight" and "Elen's Island"

I hugely appreciated the initiative Karen took to organize the event itself and was impressed by how prepared and enthusiastic she was as the chair. 

Katherine Webber

Author of "Wing Jones"

Karen has organised and chaired a number of panel events with Firefly authors and was always pro-active in the lead up to the events – briefing the panellists fully before the event.
As a chair she has a great rapport with the authors and a friendly manner that puts the authors at ease. She leads the talks and asks pertinent questions that bring out the best in the authors which always results in an excellent event.
I would whole-heartedly recommend Karen to organise and chair events. 

Megan Farr

Publicity Manager, Firefly Press

Karen is the perfect panel chair. She immediately put me and the other authors at ease with her warm, effervescent personality and her thoughtful questions elicited interesting rather than rote responses.

Sarah Govett

Author of "The Territory" and "The Territory: Escape"

Karen hosted a great YA panel with enthusiasm and a true passion for literature!
Such a fun event, with plenty of laughter and ‘book talk’.

Gabriella Lepore

Author of "Blackheath", "The Witches In The Glass Castle" and "Secrets in Phoenix"

Karen chaired the panel in which I took part with a knowledge, warmth and enthusiasm that put authors and audience at their ease and helped create a special, vibrant and enjoyable event.
