Guest Post: Meet Bobbie Crawford, the Founder & Owner of Nurture Your BOOKS™! @NurtureYourBook

Meet Bobbie Crawford, the Founder & Owner of 
Nurture Your BOOKS™!

Thank you for the opportunity to guest post on your blog. I’m delighted to be here today.

Someone asked my a very pointed question about what makes us different from all the others. To answer their question, I’d have to give some background on Nurture Your BOOKS™, and where it all began. More than 7 years ago, I noticed, through my book blogging hobby, that there were countless indie and self-published authors who needed help with services and promotion that would have normally been provided through a traditional publisher. I had always been very professional, maintained very high standards for any work I did; when I was asked by several authors if they could hire me, it seemed like a natural next step, to give serious thought to starting an author and book promotion Company. It took some time to find the right name and we played with a few different ideas over the first year or so, before settling on Nurture Your BOOKS™. With the new branding came exciting changes and a business plan that would keep us flexible and viable in an ever-changing literary landscape.

Now that the history lesson is over, we are different from all the others in many ways, not the least of which is the ethical standard that prevents us from promoting an author’s work if it doesn’t meet industry and our own, promotional standards. In short, we won’t take your money for promotion (unlike 95% of service providers out there), unless your book is at its best. If a book isn’t at its best, ie: poor book cover design, a manuscript that needs professional edits, etc., we can help you get it to where it needs to be, or we can point you in the right direction. Once the book meets standards, we are ready and able promote and market it.

If you’re interested, I’d invite you to read a few of our client testimonies and visit our website to learn more.

An avid fan of reading, collecting old books and painting watercolors when the mood strikes, Bobbie Crawford is the Founder & Owner of Nurture Your BOOKS™ and she works on a little bit of everything, focusing primarily on the one-on-one with clients as a Book Publicist and Virtual Book Tour Coordinator.
