What writers and authors are saying about us…
“I thought my memoir, Focus, was finished when I gave the manuscript to Laura to read. Instead, she surprised me by gently pointing out the holes in the story, which–when addressed–strengthened the book considerably. Laura’s got a gift for critiquing manuscripts and I’ll definitely be using her for my next book.”
– Ingrid Ricks, NYT bestselling author, Hippie Boy.

“Her marketing proposal far exceeded my expectations. In addition to a strategic and comprehensive action plan, Laura provided additional creative advice, and specific here’s-how-to-do-it resources.

Laura is patient, incredibly thorough, and sets herself apart from her competitors by her ability and willingness to over-deliver.”

“Working with Laura for the publicity on my novel Blue
Straggler was a wonderful experience on all fronts. She scored a blurb for my book from a best-selling author, booked a week’s worth of guest blog spots for me, helped facilitate some very flattering reviews, worked with me on amping up my social media presence and general marketing pieces, and so much more. She’s professional, kind and knowledgeable — everything I needed in a publicist!”

“Laura Pepper Wu … helped advise
me on everything from blog tours and giveaways to Kindle Select strategies and print-on-demand options.
Laura’s assistance enabled me to juggle marketing while I started working on my next book. Otherwise, I would have been devoted extra weeks to getting myself up to speed on the technical side. And, by sharing her knowledge of self publishing mechanics and marketing options, I believe she saved me many hours of research and trips down dead ends.”
– Robert B Lowe, Author of The Enzo Lee Mystery Thriller Series

people I’ve ever worked with. Her marketing plan and eBook strategy for our book The Dog that Became a Lion was beyond my wildest dreams – such a well put together plan.
Laura listened very carefully and asked many questions, which helped create a strong logical organization in the chapters of the plan. Somehow she managed to find and compliment my strongest points that without her help I would not be able to see.
I will keep happily referring people to Laura – she’s the best!”
