Lucy took six unimpressive blurbs for my books, and interjected them with new life. When she finished, I had more dramatic words, questions for the reader, and an attention grabbing headline for each. I was delighted. I never would have gotten to blurbs I like as well as these on my own. S. R. Cronin, author of the 46. Ascending collection of speculative fiction novels.
I would happily recommend Lucy Felthouse who organises blog tours with excellence. I was delighted by the way it encourages sales of my book, and many good comments from readers. I’m looking forward to another in the future.
Lucy did a fantastic job organising my blog tour. She offered helpful guidance and invaluable advice, and was most patient with my many questions. I feel much more confident about book marketing now, thanks to her sound input and calming presence. She connected me with bloggers and other authors I never imagined I would cross paths with personally. I would not hesitate to recommend Lucy’s expert services, and very much look forward to working with her again.
I’m a new author and had no idea where to begin with promoting my book. I eventually chose Writer Marketing Services’s Cover Reveal Tour and I’m so glad I did. Lucy is professional, efficient and prompt and I was amazed by the number of bloggers etc who took part and helped me spread the word about my new book. I couldn’t have asked for more.
I’m really pleased with the website Lucy made for me and I thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting a website made. She was efficient, professional at all times and she finished the project in the timescale that she promised. What also impressed me was the fact that she was able to quickly understand what I wanted in terms of style and deliver it promptly. When I changed my mind about anything she responded with patience and flexibility so that in the end I had everything I wanted at a very reasonable price. Overall she provided a very excellent five star service.
I was delighted to find Lucy of Writer Marketing Services and felt I had to share a word about her super approach. There are lots of things that make Lucy’s service special. One is that she will listen to you and arrange a bespoke package no matter how small, that suits your needs.
The other thing is, that with a novice she is so patient and ready to explain things. I took Lucy on for a blog tour and blitz package. On the strength of her service I would certainly use her again for bigger jobs. Lucy certainly fills a much needed gap in the market.
It was through posts between two authors on a writer’s loop that I learned of Lucy Felthouse’s Writer Marketing Services. Having little technical know-how I was in desperate need of help to get my list of published books onto Goodreads lists. I emailed Lucy and told her what I needed. She said ‘fine’, we agreed a fee, she requested cover images which I sent, then I left her to work her magic.
She completed a demanding job in a remarkably short time, and did it brilliantly. With four more titles due out between January and May 2014 I will be calling on Lucy’s expert skills again. If you need help to market your books, she’s your woman. I’m delighted to recommend her.
I contacted Lucy to enquire whether she undertook editing as I had just written my first story which was for an independently-produced project, having always written for traditional publishers up until then. I was thrilled when she told me that, not only did she edit stories for authors, but she was also free at the time to take a look at mine. (I know just how much Lucy crams into her day so wasn’t sure she’d be able to fit me in).
Not only was Lucy a fantastic editor, she also seemed to ‘get’ me, and so was a great help when we needed to discuss certain points. Her sound knowledge of English and grammar were extremely useful and I was pleased that, instead of simply correcting my work, she took the time and trouble to explain why the word/grammar/phrase/capital letter, etc was questionable, thus reminding me of long-since-forgotten ‘rules’ of English and writing which I duly noted for future reference.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lucy and am confident that my story, ‘Menage and Mascara’ is now the best it can be. I will certainly be using Lucy’s writing services again in the future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Working with Lucy and WM was a fabulous experience! She was able to pull together a tour and release blitz for me in record time and the response to both was overwhelming. Highly recommended for authors looking for a company to suit their promotional needs.
I had been looking forward to working on a website with Lucy Felthouse for weeks, but in the event the result was even better than expected. The site is fabulous, and Lucy was patient, efficient and organised throughout the process. She has since helped me to make the most of the blog and also developed an author page on Facebook, which I hadn’t even considered. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
I’d never done a blog tour before, and as someone who is not the most organised person in the world, I knew I would need the help. Lucy was fast, efficient, and quickly had tour spots booked on five great sites. Lucy kept me informed at every step and the whole tour ran smoothly, without a hitch, and in the end was a lot of fun – which I’d never imagined would be the case! A great service, and a great person to work with.
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 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!
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.
I was nervous about venturing into the world of promotion but with the help of Lucy Felthouse, it couldn’t have been easier. She has the wonderful ability to make you feel at ease while conducting business in an efficient and professional manner. I was extremely pleased with my blog tour and will certainly recommend Lucy’s Writer Marketing Services to others and look forward to working with her again in the future.
When Lucy offered to redesign and reconstruct my website, I jumped at the change, having seen what she had wonderfully created for other authors. My site would have probably been a nightmare to most web designers as I now seem to have collected a great deal of material to showcase from my 20 years in publishing, but Lucy created exactly what I wanted to have as an online archive of my work. What I really liked about working with Lucy was her ability to please. After constructing the first category, and my approval of it, she then based the rest of the site’s design on the feedback I gave her, and by doing so, she came up with a look for the site that I would never have thought of myself – and more importantly one that was fabulously uniformed to make its navigation simple, effective and very impressive. The result was beyond my wildest dreams! I also adored the way Lucy worked on developing the site, explaining things as she went along, tweaking this and that, to make it as perfect as she could, all done promptly, accurately and very much to my liking, with the minimum of fuss! And on top of that, Lucy is a real dream to work with. Nothing seems to ruffle her feathers! She is a champ!
