Testimonial From Long and Short Reviews

This testimonial from Long and Short Reviews put a huge smile on my face when it arrived in my inbox:

 

“Writer Marketing Services was a lifesaver.  On relatively short notice and on a tight schedule, Lucy took our vision and created a completely new website. She was readily available to answer our numerous questions and was always patient, willing and more than capable.  I’m thrilled with our decision to work with her, and should we ever need help again, she’ll be first on our list to call.”

 

I recently gave the Long and Short Reviews website a huge overhaul. All the information is in my portfolio.

K D Grace and Grace Marshall

K D Grace has been a client of mine since I first launched Writer Marketing Services. I created and maintain her website, and deal with her PR. Now, excitingly, this popular author has also started writing under another pen name!

K D Grace writes incredibly hot erotica and erotic romance, and her alter ego, Grace Marshall, writes hot romance. The launch of this new pen name and the book deal that spawned it inevitably meant that another website and social media presence was required. Therefore, I created and launched GraceMarshallRomance.co.uk (with graphics designed by Kevin Mitnik of Blisse UK), and opened a new Twitter account and Facebook Fan Page for Grace Marshall. Grace is currently finishing her first book and it will be launched in coming months, so make sure to keep an eye on her site and social media profiles for further news.

Following the launch of the Grace Marshall website, myself and K D/Grace, decided that now would be the perfect time to revamp the KDGrace.co.uk website. So once Grace Marshall was made live, I started work on the K D Grace website. I used the same WordPress theme but with different colours and graphics (also created by Kevin Mitnik) to make it clear that K D Grace and Grace Marshall are one and the same, but write different books. Though I’m sure many readers will enjoy both sets of books!

So, please go and visit both sites and enjoy some superbly written books!

Springing Ahead!

Well, spring is upon us, and I’m pleased to report that I’m springing ahead with projects, and have recently completed three websites, amongst lots of other PR work for both contract and ongoing clients.

Sites for Midlands Pest Control, Maxim Jakubowski and Adriana Kraft are all now live on the web, for your viewing enjoyment. Maxim and Adriana also kindly took the time to write up glowing recommendations of my work:

“Lucy Felthouse not only organised a wonderful blog tour for the publication of my latest novel, but she also then set up a website for me; this was something I should have done years ago but never got round to as it seemed too complex for my luddite technological skills. Her explanations, suggestions and ideas made it easy and then her hard work made this a reality. Thank you.”Maxim Jakubowski

“I just finished a total website overhaul created by Lucy Felthouse of Writer Marketing Services. I heartily endorse both the product and the process. Lucy was able to take my half-formed concepts and flesh them out with her experience and her eye for what will work best on the page. At every step of the way, she was patient and taught me what I need to know to be able to maintain the site myself and make future changes. Thank you, Lucy!”Adriana Kraft

I’m also busily running and booking blog tours, as well as preparing for several new projects, including some that were picked up as a result of my talk at the recent Eroticon conference. Myself and colleague and friend Victoria Blisse did a session on blog tours, which much to our delight (we were up against some tough competition) was really well attended and sparked lots of interest and discussion. You can’t ask for any more than that!

So, if you’re looking for a new website, a blog tour, a review submission package or something more bespoke, let me know as soon as you can, and I can get your project planned in. I look forward to hearing from you.

Testimonial from Liia Ann White

I just received this fab testimonial from Liia Ann White – who booked a blog tour for her latest release through WMS.

I used Lucy’s Writer Marketing Services for a blog tour and was instantly left wondering why I hadn’t used her earlier. I’ve used other promotional companies to organise blog tours and appearances, but none of them compare to Lucy. Within hours of emailing her regarding the tour, she responded – not an easy feat with the time difference between the two of us – and she had great spots booked up within days. The entire process ran smoothly and I couldn’t have been happier.

The tour was a great success and Lucy promoted my guest spots on both her personal Twitter and Erotica For All accounts.

I plan on using Writer Marketing Services again and again and again.

Brand New Website & Now Booking for February

Today I added another satisfied customer to my portfolio! Diane Alberts, a romance writer, asked me to create a new website for her and her fast growing collection of books, and today the project was completed. As is the case with these projects, there was lots of to-ing and fro-ing, but the site is now complete and Diane has let me know she’s very happy with the results. So much so, that she wrote me this glowing recommendation:

Lucy listened to what I wanted, and gave me all of it..but in a better version than what I’d pictured! I asked for beauty and simplicity, and she followed through. Her updates were frequent, and she never left me wondering if she was working hard on my site- I knew she was! I highly recommend Lucy if you want a friendly, knowledgeable, detail-conscientious web designer!

Check out the newly-updated DianeAlberts.com here!

In other news, I’ve scheduled several blog tours of late, and I’m now scheduling into February. So if you’re looking to run a blog tour for your new book, please contact me ASAP to make sure you get the dates you require! More info and pricing on blog tours here.

Two New Websites & A Blog Tour

Well, I have been busy of late! I’ve completed two new websites, both for creative types. One was for Maggie Hatchard, a Staffordshire based artist, who specialises in flowers and architecture. The other was for Slave Nano, an erotic writer whose naughty stories are definitely not for the faint hearted! You can see both websites in my Portfolio and follow the links if you want to check out their sites.

I also ran a week-long blog tour for Tabitha Rayne to help promote her new release, Mia’s Books. It went very well and Tabitha was so pleased with the service that she wrote me a lovely testimonial, which you can see here, along with Slave Nano’s newly added testimonial.

I’m now busy working on another website, as well as some promotion for existing clients and also a non-fiction title. It’s all go!

Highly Recommended

When I have finished a project I ask all my clients if they’d mind writing me a testimonial. This one from Casey Sheridan popped into my inbox today.

I originally contacted Lucy Felthouse at Writer Marketing Services for help with promotion for my release of Ruby Red Metallic.

Once we discussed a few options, Lucy wasted no time setting up guest blogs and interviews for me at a number of places, handled two or three giveaways, sent out my book for review and posted links to all my appearances on Twitter and Facebook.

Lucy was able to work within my budget and with my odd schedule. She was always available to answer my questions and address any concerns.

Promoting a book can be an overwhelming task for a relatively unknown author. Hiring Lucy was the best thing I could have done for my book and myself. Lucy is well known and well respected in the publishing industry, her contacts and insights made for a flawless experience.

I plan to contact Lucy for future releases.

I highly recommend Lucy Felthouse at Writer Marketing Services.

Naturally, I’m very pleased that Casey is pleased – I do my best to be there to answer questions and assist with any concerns, making sure my clients are happy with what I’m doing. Thanks for the testimonial, Casey, and I look forward to working with you in the future!

Another Satisfied Customer!

I just added a new project to my Portfolio – the complete overhaul and redesign of D. W. Marchwell’s website. You can see more information on the process here.

When I asked D. W. if he would mind doing a testimonial for my services, he happily obliged. When I received it, I was delighted. I knew he’d been happy with my work, but seeing it in black and white just makes it seem so much more real, somehow.

Here are D. W.’s comments:

I thought the task of redesigning my website would be long and complicated, but Ms. Felthouse made the entire process easy to understand and even easier to finish. Ms. Felthouse’s attention to achieving the look and feel I wanted on the site was exemplary. If you’re looking for someone who is easy to work with, easy to understand and who will get the job done right the first time, you won’t be disappointed with Ms. Felthouse’s work.

Pat on the back for me!

Latest News

Hi everyone. I just wanted to pop a quick post on here as I realise I’ve been rather quiet. However, it’s been for a good reason – because I’ve been so busy!

As well as doing little bits and pieces here and there for clients, I’ve also been working on big PR campaigns for two erotic writers. They’re both promoting new and upcoming releases, as well as themselves in general, so I’ve been busy juggling various appearances and interviews, and keeping their promotional calendars organised. If this is something you’re interested in having me do for you, please contact me to discuss.

I also have a couple of websites in different stages of completion. Again, if you’re looking for a professional, easy to use and update website that doesn’t cost the earth, please give me a shout.
