Author Testimonials

A Novel Take PR has worked with many of the top names in books. See what authors have to say about Judith and her services:


Judith began marketing my first book before I even had the social media accounts to know she was doing it, and she hasn’t stopped since. This genuine love of books, and passion for sharing them with other readers, is at the root of what makes her so affective. She is always strategizing, always making contacts, and always looking for innovative ways to connect books with readers. She’s never met a person she wouldn’t rec books to, or a website she wouldn’t ask for a feature! Having someone so dedicated to getting my books in front of readers who might enjoy them has been invaluable for me, and I know it will be going forward, too.

Roan Parrish, author of In the Middle of Somewhere, Out of Nowhere, and Where We Left Off


Judith has shown a remarkable ability to multitask the creation and execution of multi-author promotions on multiple social media outlets while maintaining a positive, friendly demeanor with readers, authors, and publishing professionals alike. Her familiarity with romance-specific events and conventions, media blitzes and blog tours, and her expertise in choreographing social media campaigns that highlight and introduce both new and experienced authors to the reading public is without parallel. Without hesitation, I would recommend her and her services!

Tammara Webber, author of Easy, Unbreakable, Between the Lines, and Good For You


Judith has done amazing things for my books. She knows everyone and stays on top of everything, and she is always engaging her followers across her platforms. Even more, she’s great to work with as a person – enthusiastic, supportive, and a lot of fun!

Nora Sakavic, author of The Foxhole Court, The Raven King, and The King’s Men


Judith is 100% plugged into the book world, exposing me both to new markets and new media. She’s organized, tenacious, and supremely creative. Plus, we always have a blast working together. She’s a go-to resource for blurb edits, blog tours, and brilliant podcasts, to be aggressively alliterative about it!

Amy Jo Cousins, author of Off Campus, The Girl Next Door, A Rock and A Hard Place, and Five Dates


Judith does the impossible. I’ve never met anyone with more drive for promoting books. Once she’s in your corner she makes results happen.   

J.R. Gray, author of the Bound series


I rarely market my books. I know, shocker. But when I work with Judith, I don’t have to! Working with her means you will have a media/promo partner who is always on time, super responsive, and if there are issues with any aspect of a promotion, she takes care of them immediately. She is someone who knows the market, knows books, knows me. I love having her on my team!

Kris Ripper, author of Catalysts, Red and Bad, and the Queers of La Vista


I’ve known Judith for nearly five years now, and she is a bona fide book promo queen. I’m forever impressed by her creativity, bottomless energy, and practical knowledge of how to connect readers with books they’ll adore. Not only does she know how to reach and engage an audience, she’s also a truly devoted reader with vast cross-genre knowledge and contagious passion for all types of stories. No one spreads book-love like Judith, and no one will do a better job getting your masterpiece into the right hands.

J.C. Lillis, author of How to Repair a Mechanical Heart and A&B


Working with Judith was the most organized experience I’ve had in publishing. All expectations and deadlines were laid out well in advance, and the interactions were friendly and professional. She set me up with promotional opportunities I wouldn’t have gotten on my own, and helped me build connections for the future. Would definitely work with her again!

J.A. Rock, author of The Subs Club, The Minotaur, and The Silvers


Judith is a marketing wizard. I’ve worked with her for two anthologies and various releases, and her mix of creativity and business savvy has led to excellent results. Her ability to view promotion from various angles and lenses has led to me reaching different audiences and making new connections.

Santino Hassell, author of The Five Boroughs series, The Cyberlove series (with Megan Erickson), and ICoS


Judith is super passionate about books and it shows — her love of reading really shines through everything she does. She takes an organized, professional approach while maintaining a personal connection and helping authors through every step of the process. She’s committed to finding fresh new approaches for marketing and always thinking of how to best connect with readers, and is a wonderful, friendly and enthusiastic supporter for any author.

Avon Gale, author of the Scoring Chances series, Let the Wrong Light In, and Whiskey Business


I’ve known and worked with Judith on and off since 2012. No one understands the business of book promotions and the gentle hearts of authors more than she does. Her tenacious and flexible talents seem bottomless. Talents that allow her to understand and master multiple technologies and social medias. Talents that include her hands on experiences of what’s available in person at huge industry conferences like Book Expo America in NYC as well as knowledge of the varied author promotional options that can be gained for authors at giant reader conferences like Romantic Times. Judith is an amazing guide through this mad-author-maze, and she’s a steadfast friend as well as a consummate professional at all times.

In addition to her participation at ‘big events’ she also well understands the greater, deeper impact of smaller local library and school events, book festivals and bookstore events; and she also knows how to navigate the multi-author signings happening around the USA and Europe. In addition to this knowledge, Judith’s true and lasting relationships with some of the best and respected online book bloggers and reviewers in the industry are also one of her assets. Judith is one class act who can teach authors how to get organized, how to get along and simply how to be true to themselves. Her advice is unparalleled because she truly does understand the layers, behaviors, and habits needed for authors to succeed in this crazy and volatile market. In this changing publishing landscape Judith understands indie authors, traditionally published authors, hybrid authors as well as everything in between.

Her experiences from fangirl-reader, to respected reviewer, blogger and even to small publisher have taught her so much. She, as well as her book industry knowledge-base has evolved for years along with the industry, and because Judith is so fast on her feet she is one who will continue to stay on top of all marketing trends that will hit in the future. I think there is no other person more passionate, and more qualified, or more down to earth than Judith to do this very difficult job.
