Digital marketing consulting and web design for publishers, PR firms, and authors.

Getting started: For book marketing tips from Nick Courage, check out the Nov/Dec 2016 issue of Writer’s Digest!


I’m a publishing professional with a decade of experience at Big Six publishing houses like Farrar, Straus and Giroux and Picador. I’ve worked on campaigns for bestselling and award-winning authors such as Hilary Mantel, Jonathan Franzen, Michael Cunningham, Jeffrey Eugenides, Marilynne Robinson, George Packer, Paul Auster, Ishmael Beah, and more. I’ve also worked on more “commercial” books, like the movie tie-ins for Silver Linings Playbook and Limitless.

I was the digital consultant for events like Lorca in New York, the largest-ever festival in North America celebrating the work of acclaimed Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca, and have designed websites and secured national media for non-profits like Pittsburgh’s City of Asylum, a sanctuary for exiled writers.

Current clients include: Algonquin Young Readers, Hub City Writers Project, and a number of book PR companies…

Selected web work:

In addition to book-specific marketing, my specialties are branding, platform and community building, workflow optimization, targeted social marketing, content development and deployment, analytics, and acquisition oriented campaigns.

I regularly speak at writers’ conferences and graduate programs, where I offer marketing and publishing advice to groups of aspiring and published authors. There’s no feeling quite like helping a book reach its intended readership… If you’d like help reaching your readers, please shoot me a line in the contact form below.

I’m also available to help publishers on larger branding projects.

Currently my services include marketing consulting and web design. I’m happy to take on projects regardless of size, and am open to projects that aren’t necessarily book-related:

Estimates upon request.
