Do you need a freelance copywriter, editor and publicist to help polish or promote your books? Get in touch to see how we might collaborate. I'm also offering a picture book critique service. Contact Ciara on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I have over 10 years’ experience in copywriting, editing, proofreading, marketing and PR, in the advertising, publishing and bookselling industries. Working as a children’s book buyer for almost a decade ignited an interest in literature for young people, and I’ve loved kids' books ever since.
After being furloughed in April 2020, I established two children's book blogs: picturebooksnob.com and paperbacksnob.com. Through maintaining both sites and building a strong following on social media, I’ve acquired lots more experience in editing and marketing. I’ve also helped self-published Irish authors and smaller publishers promote their work and increase their followers by organising blog tours and outlining marketing strategies for them.
Immersing myself in the world of picture books and paying particular attention to new titles has given me an acute insight into the current market. Sharing stories with my family provides me with an understanding of what appeals to children and, just as importantly, the grown-ups who buy their books. I’d love to help you shape your work-in-progress into a future classic.
