I've used the various search features on multiple threads on AW and haven't been able to find anything on Smith Publicity.
I'm exhausted from recent marketing efforts and would like to hire a firm to take over the brunt of the work so I can get back to what really draws in readers -- writing my next book.
I've been in contact with two firms already, here are my findings:
Paula Margulies: http://www.paulamargulies.com/index.html
Really nice woman, seems to know her stuff, asked me a lot of questions and really took the time to understand my needs and goals. I'm sending her copies of my books to read, per her requirement, to see if she and I can work together. Her business appears smaller and she looks like she gives her clients a lot of personal attention in helping their careers. She charges hourly, like a lawyer, and keeps track of all her contacts/calls/appointments in a spreadsheet, which she gives to the client as well.
I was looking for opinions on either one, if you have one.
