"I love working with you! Nobody is more responsive or answers faster, more helpfully or more professionally!"

Mitzi PerdueAuthor, Mark Victor Hansen: Relentless and Rich Widows of Savannah Valley

I am deeply grateful for the way in which you reviewed my book. I have been having the hardest time summarizing the book to others. You got the underlying intention the best of anyone — I am truly impressed.

Lisa Perskie RodriguezAuthor, Laela and the Moonline

Impressive sales are already resulting on Amazon from your eblast email this morning for my book David’s Sling — thanks very much!

Andrew CeroniAuthor, David’s Sling and In the Black

Thanks so much for helping me navigate the tricky world of promotion, and for providing such great information and insight. I appreciate all of your hard work!

Kerry J CharlesAuthor, Dulcie Chambers Mysteries

I've noticed a definite increase in sales since the end of March. You have done a fabulous job for me.

A reviewer of Hemingway's early work suggested that he should instead enroll in a local truck driving school rather than keep writing. After smashing his Corona No. 3 typewriter against the wall of his small Paris garret, Hemingway picked up where he left off, and the rest is history. It's an important lesson for the unknown, first-time novelist, as well as the reviewer. For the novelist, the lesson is two-fold: have a thick skin, and hope for an intelligent reviewer. For the reviewer, the lesson is: do your homework!

While I'm sure BookTrib's Jim Alkon would prefer reviewing a debut novel on par with Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, he does his homework and writes with great intelligence even when reviewing works of far less genius. That has been the case with his fine, insightful review of my novel Powerballs. I could not be more pleased with the review and BookTrib's subsequent work to promote the novel. While truck driving school is always a possibility, another novel now seems much more likely. In the meantime, I’ve gotten increased hits on my website from all over the country.

Jimmy CliftonAuthor, Powerballs

I am overwhelmed by the extent to which your company has gone to help publicize my book. I had no idea when I began this process that so much would be handled by your company on my behalf, the cost being totally irrelevant to the time and consideration you have put into it for me. You have helped make this most difficult part of the process something I could put in your hands with confidence.

Marianne E. BurgessAuthor, Shadow of the Spider

I have officially sold over 1K books!! I know the BookTrib eblast had a lot to do with that! I love working with BookTrib — the staff is so very supportive and responsive.

Karin FreelandAuthor, The Ins and Outs of My Vagina

What impressive numbers, and thank you for keeping me informed, great customer service!

Vincent DoddAuthor, Suffer Less in Death

If you're looking for a helping hand getting your book in front of the right audiences, BookTrib is the five-star choice. Their follow-through, personal attention, and all-around niceness are second to none. Highly recommended!

Dave MasonAuthor, EO-N

Thank you for what you do to make writers stand out in the literary world!

Stephen A. VigianoAuthor, Enrich Your Life and the World with the Game of Golf

Cynthia Conrad’s review of Irina is so beautifully written, I almost wish I'd given her the plot and let her pen Irina's story herself. So perfectly has she described Irina's plight, a reader will want to join Irina's unlikely entourage leaving Poland for France, and that's exactly what an author would hope to happen. This review will help sell my story to the right audience.

Philip WarrenAuthor, Irina

Thank you for all your help in promoting my novel. I shared the interview that Booktrib posted on Facebook and the response was incredible. I know a lot of copies have already been sold on Amazon.

Maureen LutzAuthor, Hero Can I Be

Jim Alkon and the BookTrib team are a gift to the debut author. Entering the world of book publishing and marketing is utterly overwhelming, and BookTrib's critique, review, author profile and positioning made me feel like I had a friend in the business, someone who was on my side to give me my first leg up. Their professional reviews and broad exposure to the literary world made all the difference in my book's exposure and my credibility as an independently published author.

Shanon HuntAuthor, The Pain Colony and The Rage Colony

With your program, I definitely noticed a bump in sales, and it helped prime my Amazon rankings for my ebook sale/BookBub mailing.

Mike ChenAuthor, A Beginning at the End and Here and Now and Then

BookTrib did a great job helping me market my new thriller. The review, the author discovery zone, social media and syndicated column all helped sales and buzz about my book. They also helped me set up a huge book tour, and for the first time I'm doing book signings at Barnes and Noble throughout the Northeast.

Jeffrey DiamondAuthor, Live to the Network

Meryl Moss and her staff did everything she promised and then some during the time I retained her to help market my most recent two novels. I have been extremely pleased. Interviews and appearances were arranged efficiently providing wide exposure. In addition, they found blogs and reviewers to publicize the books. When my publisher’s schedule slipped, Meryl was both gracious and flexible in rescheduling the appearances. I will certainly use Meryl again for my next book.

Allan TopolAuthor, The Spanish Revenge

I was completely awed by your thorough and thoughtful review, written with such grace and insight. It was so uplifting to read your treatment of the story after all the work I put into it. I’ll be using your comments wherever I can. What you have done far exceeds anything I expected.

Ellen Gibson-AdlerAuthor, The Road to Home, The Ride to Jubilee, and The Voyage

I have been very fortunate to work with Meryl Moss Media. They have created over a hundred interview opportunities for me, publicized my books all over the country, and given me excellent advice on how to expand my readership. I could not have found a better group.

Mike BondAuthor, Saving Paradise, The Last Savanna, Holy War, House of Jaguar and Tibetan Cross

As a first-time author, I was amazed at how much great publicity Meryl Moss Media was able to generate for me in a very short time. I was transformed from being just another autism mom writing about my family’s experience to an author/expert interviewed on many radio stations and television shows and was offered several speaking engagements. I was also featured in The New York Post and invited to write articles for numerous parents’ magazines and prominent blogs. I couldn’t imagine a more “picture perfect” book launch, and would definitely return to Meryl with my second book.

Marguerite ElisofonAuthor, My Picture Perfect Family: What Happens When One Twin Has Autism

The review you wrote that went syndicated helped me sell 75 books.

Angelyn Christy Voss,Author, Stand a Little Out of My Sun

Thank you to the BookTrib team. Shortly after your review of my book, it was sitting at #142 in Crime Thrillers on Amazon (Kindle Store). This is a dream come true!

Ava BlackAuthor, The Friends

Rarely in our 40 years of working with people on their most difficult issues and concerns have we found someone who really gets the importance of engaging in deep mental health and well-being work — you get it! Further, you have such a special and profound way of communicating the importance of complex and deep work in the field of human development leading to a “better self.” What a special book review.

Elaine and Henry BrzyckiCo-authors, Purpose and Possibilities

With many reviews, you get a plot rehash and a sentence or two of what they thought. BookTrib went above and beyond, and I couldn't be happier. It was really detailed and should be marketable.

Robert M. MooresAuthor, The Shoe Box

BookTrib’s review really tapped into the heart and soul of the book like no one else has.

Anna M. EliasAuthor, The Vessels

BookTrib’s review was not only the best review I’ve received to date, it may be the best review I’ve ever read, period. I received several compliments on how articulate and well written it was.

Ryan SouthwickAuthor, Angels in the Mist

Book Trib has been an important part of my marketing program. They have cultivated a quality community of readers. They are certainly at the top of my list.

Rita DragonetteAuthor, The Fourteenth of September

Thank you for the wonderful review. In every exchange we’ve had, you’ve provided sound professional advice and were personally encouraging. It was clear you understood my desire to find an audience and my need to be judicious about how I invested my money.

Deborah HawkinsAuthor, Best of No Small Thing

My journey as a self-published author has been a long and often difficult one. There are so many decisions to make. Finding a professional marketing venue on a limited budget is one of the most challenging decisions. I feel very fortunate to have chosen BookTrib to help market my book. They were there for me all the way. I am impressed with the professional look of their site and their extensive social network. As an author, the most important thing is to reach as many readers as possible. I am delighted with the professional review of my book. It’s clear the reviewer understood the essence of my stories. Most importantly, BookTrib is ethical. They did everything they promised, and to me that is so important. I highly recommend BookTrib.

Diana GrilloAuthor, An Accidental Murder and Other Stories

Tabitha BaileySenior Publicist, Sparkpoint Studio

BookTrib has become an integral part of book launches and promotions. Through their program and a stellar review, they introduced my novel Howard & Debbie to tens of thousands of readers, which has resulted in a major increase in online and bookstore sales. I can't imagine releasing a book without them.

Max MobleyAuthor, Howard & Debbie

BookTrib is an important factor in getting my work known. I am delighted with the results of our goal: Get the word out!

Meryl Moss and her team gave Midnight in Berlin a huge boost in the U.S. and made it essential that I fly the Atlantic to fulfill the many interviews and speaking engagements that she and her team arranged for me. A fantastic service from highly skilled publicists who know the highways and byways of American media

Meryl Moss Media offers a spectacular level of service. MMM provides high quality and effective contacts, along with seamless organization that makes it easy to manage the most robust event or media tour. Meryl herself is warm, insightful and has a knack for knowing exactly who to connect authors with; her team is positive, friendly and effective. I highly recommend Meryl Moss Media, and plan on working with them again.

Sara WisemanAuthor, Messages from the Divine: Wisdom for the Seeker’s Soul

I am so pleased with the work BookTrib has done for me. I am recommending BookTrib to my Writer's Critique group and other authors in my circle. Wonderful work, truly!

Linda Huntzinger CalhounAuthor, Awake Beloved and Arise

This program is fantastic! When I googled my book, the article came up a zillion times. Thanks so much!

Jodé MillmanAuthor, The Midnight Call and Hooker Avenue

I’m so grateful for your beautiful review. I love its insight that my book is actually about family. I’ve been so focused on the story being about a homeless teen that I completely missed the idea that it’s also about family. This review has given me a whole new perspective on Far Less. A thousand thanks for the great review and for spreading the word!

Kathy WollenbergAuthor, Far Less

Thanks so much for everything you have done. The review is amazing and brought tears to my eyes. I'm glad I invested in BookTrib.

Margaret KramarAuthor, Searching for Spenser

The sales of my book really show the benefit of having it listed in your BookBites program.

Helene SchweigerAuthor, The Magic Pond

Your BookBites program was very successful for us. We had over 40 sales in 2-3 days since your postings came out.

Douglas DrossmanCo-author, Gut Feelings

BookTrib far exceeded my expectations. I'm so glad I worked with them on the release of my book. They were knowledgeable, timely, and invaluable in the promotion of my book. I highly recommend them!

Danielle GomesAuthor, EVE-0

Of all the help I got marketing my book, BookTrib was the most professional and delivered what they promised.

Arthur JeonAuthor, Snowflake: A Novel

I am loving everything I purchased with you. I’m getting lots of great responses from the influencers you sent my children’s book to. And the article was so thorough and so well written. And I’m even hearing from the Chicago Tribune. I will use you 100 times over, and it’s still early in the program.

Casey RislovAuthor, Love

BookTrib's Book Club Program was one of the best promotions I've done. The folks at BookTrib are easy to work with, they put your book in front of a wide variety of book clubs all over the country, they promote the book club choices through their own social media, and they provide a really helpful summary of activity at the close of the campaign. I highly recommend BookTrib's Book Club Program to authors looking to break into the book club niche.

Stephanie AlexanderAuthor, Charleston Green

I love how precise BookTrib’s marketing is. So different from other similar book marketing sites.

Susan WingateAuthor, How the Deer Moon Hungers

While I had doubts whether promotion would equal book sales, I can attest that BookTrib’s review of my book definitely resulted in an uptick of activity and ultimately sales of books. Your professional approach and follow through (exactly as promised each step of the way) stands out as stellar in the often-murky world of book publicity. I highly recommend BookTrib as a ‘minimum investment/maximum return’ vehicle to help authors get their books in front of potential readers.

Anne GoodwinAuthor, Come to the Lake

I just read the review of my book and I’m more than just happy -- I’m ecstatic! The review means so much to me, and I will definitely share it on social media. It was well worth the wait and it surpasses all expectations of what I thought the program would be like. I am very happy I made the decision to use BookTrib, and look forward to many more projects.

Charletta BarksdaleAuthor, Desire of Whimsy

Oh my goodness. That is the most wonderfully written review I’ve ever gotten. I will continue to use BookTrib with future books.

Jennifer TretheweyAuthor, Tying the Scot, Betting the Scot, Forgetting the Scot and Saving the Scot

I would not launch another book without Meryl Moss Media.

Kathryn MilesAuthor, Superstorm: Nine Days Inside Hurricane Sandy

We can’t say enough about BookTrib — supportive, sharp, always insightful. They’ve become integral to our marketing for debut authors — their mission of connecting readers and writers rings true.

Lindy RyanOwner/Publisher, Black Spot Books

Meryl and her staff are extremely smart, extremely capable, and hyper-aware of the media environment — the right combination of flexibility and tenacity for high-level promotion. Plus, they are a pleasure to work with.

Frederick KaufmanAuthor, Bet the Farm

Meryl Moss has been my trusted book publicist for eight of my books (six nonfiction and two novels). She is a seasoned, respected publicist who has created impressive campaigns for each of my projects. She and her staff are savvy, resourceful marketers — I count on them

Susan Shapiro Barash/ aka Susannah MarrenAuthor, You’re Grounded Forever…But First Let’s Go Shopping, Tripping the Prom Queen, Toxic Friends, Between the Tides, A Palm Beach Wife, Little White Lies, Deep Dark Secrets, and The Nine Phases of Marriage

What sets Meryl Moss Media apart is that Meryl and her team care so much about their clients.

Ann FishmanAuthor, Marketing to the Millennial Woman

Meryl Moss and her team were instrumental in transforming my “Leading Geeks” book into the foundation for a satisfying career. If you’ve invested your time, heart and soul in writing a book that you want to launch a career in writing, speaking and/or consulting, publicity is a critical component. Every day, more than a decade later, I still reap the benefits of the investment I made with Meryl & her team.

Paul GlenAuthor, Leading Geeks

I love the personal attention I received from working with Meryl Moss Media as well as from Meryl herself. As a client I felt I had my own team. I appreciated their openness, flexibility and integrity throughout the process. It was a delightful experience overall.
