“I always get exactly what I ask for when working with Melody Barber on cover design. She has a way of taking my idea and making it shine. She is fast, professional, and very talented. I highly recommend Aurora Publicity for your cover needs.” – Amanda Mariel, #1 Best-Selling Amazon All Star Author 

 

“Samantha and Aurora Publicity are tremendous to work with. They ‘get’ the neurotic writer psyche, as well as our need for hand-holding and detail, and always made sure that I had what I needed for the promotion to work smooth as silk. Their follow-up and response times are beyond exceptional. I had a great time working with them, and would recommend them for anyone seeking a high-end promo experience.” – Angel Payne, USA Today Best-Selling Author

 

“Samantha has been terrific to work with, so helpful in launching my new series. The most valuable project she implemented for me was a newsletter cross promotion campaign in which a dozen erotic romance authors sent the same promotional newsletter to their mailing lists. Growing my mailing list was very high priority for me, and this campaign garnered me hundreds of new subscribers. Thanks, Samantha!” – Louisa Crane, USA Today Best-Selling Author

 

“Aurora Publicity is a dream come true for an indie author like myself.
Marketing wise, Samantha gave me advice on making my website more user friendly, taught me how to create a teaser with a call to action, walked me through how to host an author cover reveal party on Facebook, and showed me how to create release day events and giveaways as well as enhance my blog.
Cover Design and graphics can be tricky and sometimes hard to translate what an author wants (even if she/he has no idea) to the designer. Melody was able to take the blurb from my book and translate it to a beautiful cover. I had a clear idea of what I wanted and amazingly enough, when I saw her first mock up, I thought she had somehow climbed into my brain to retrieve it. She was able to make some tweaks to coloring and images and in the end I knew I had found my new cover designer for my writing life.
Aurora promotes authors daily with their, Teaser Tuesday and Writer Wednesday posts, as well as other prompts to list current samples of work with the intent of introducing authors to new readers. These posts on their Facebook page are completely free to participate in. I love their blog posts as well which are always full of useful information on writing, editing, publishing, etc.
Now, self-publishing is not scary at all with these ladies on my team. In fact, it’s exciting.”
– Jennifer Senhaji, Contemporary Romance Author
