I’m Chelsea! I’m an avid reader, aspiring writer and Certified Professional Author’s Assistant, specializing in book marketing. My mission is to assist authors with publishing, marketing and other book details so they can focus on what they do best—writing.
They say hindsight is 20/20 and I’m living proof of it. All throughout high school I wanted to be a marine biologist–until I got to my freshman year of college and realized how many math and science courses I would have to take (ick). I quickly changed my major but had no clue what I wanted to do or what my passion was. As a result, I spent several years drifting and trying to figure out just that.
After college, I worked for six years as the Marketing Director for the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce in Dallas, TX where I was able to develop my skills in graphic design, HTML & websites, event planning, PR, and much more. It was during this time that I happened to hear about a friend who was working with an author and thought it might be something I’d like to do since I loved to read and write in my spare time.
In September of 2013 I was hired as an assistant to New York Times Bestselling Author Emily March. Emily immediately took me under her wing and after a few short months of helping her to market her latest book via social media, blogs, etc. I had fallen in love with the job. I had finally found something that combined my interest in writing, my love for reading, and my knowledge of marketing into a job I am passionate about. Since then I’ve become certified as an Author’s Assistant and taken on other author clients who are looking for marketing help or who just need an extra set of hands as the role of an author constantly changes and increases in its demands.
