Thank you to Penny Sansevieri and her brilliant team at Author Marketing Experts for their guidance and invaluable assistance in helping Weepers reach more places than I could have imagined.
Having my first book published is a great event, but I quickly learned my publisher does not give a lot of marketing support.The best thing they did was introduce me to Author Marketing Experts. The viral marketing activity created books reviews, radio and podcast interviews. In short, gave me great exposure for a first time writer. Because of the exposure I received I was invited by Entrepreneur magazine to write a monthly column and to be an official blogger. I would use Author Marketing Experts again. I believe I received great value for the investment. The staff was easy to work with, professional and followed through.

I wanted to thank you for the excellent work your team did in helping me to promote the debt-free living lifestyle. Your team was able to guide me in redesigning my web site for higher traffic, establish a free newsletter, start a blog and get me on several radio shows. This effort resulted in a 150% increase in hits to the web site as well as a 600% increase in my newsletter subscriptions. I am still amazed at the response! I found your fee exceedingly reasonable compared with the remarkable results I had. I will be using your services again when I launch my next book.
-Janine Bolon, SmartCents, Inc.
I can't begin to tell you how impressed I've been with your company and the services it has provided me.
Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, Penny Sansevieri provides the most promotional value available for an author in today's tight marketplace. Her savvy and experience in the business allows her to tailor the perfect marketing plan around your specific needs. If your goals include generating name recognition as an author and a buzz for your book, there's no better person for the job, sense or dollars wise, period!
Working with Penny and team at AME on their Virtual Author Tours was like having my biggest fan running around inside the World Wide Web tapping every website on the shoulder while declaring the virtues of my debut novel with as much passion as might my own mother. I couldn't have received better exposure without my name being Dan Brown and my book being titled the Da Vinci Code.
I am delighted with the promotion work AME has done for me. Penny Sansevieri and her dedicated crew have produced a major online buzz for my sexy, fun novel. I've done 80 some events at bookstores, book clubs, libraries, festivals, even spas but an author can only travel so much. The scope of the web is practically infinite. From reviews on many romance sites to articles, blogs and even a podcast interview, this is a terrific way to get the word out nationwide and beyond.
Promoting my own work still feels foreign and uncomfortable to me. Penny Sansevieri and her staff helped me every step of the way.

When it comes to book marketing success, no one knows it better than Penny Sansevieri. I engaged Penny to help me promote my book Their Way Home over a year ago, and the leads continue to pour in. Penny's one of the few in this industry who knows how to build an author into a long-term success story, and she does it well. Her industry-insider knowledge and well-honed strategies are the most effective I've ever seen. Penny's the secret marketing weapon every author wants on their team.

We have truly gotten coverage way beyond our expectations!

Writing my book was easy. Selling it was hard. Untangling the web of Internet sites, bloggers, and social media was daunting. I was intimidated by the options . . . until Penny Sansevieri and Author Marketing Experts guided me in the right direction. With their common-sense approach to promoting books, they were able to get my title out there and get it some great reader reviews. No wonder they have such a successful track record and wonderful reputation. I’m so grateful to Penny and the whole professional team at AME for starting the ball rolling for me.
I am that person who employs what I learn from writing conferences. After attending Penny's session on marketing, I knew there was a recipe for success, but would the baker want to help frost a cake that had been cooling for three years? I felt like my book deserved more attention and, fortunately Penny knew just where to begin. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the entire AME team. They are extremely polite, professional, with excellent communication. My book has now gotten into the hands of bloggers and my increased presence is undeniable. AME is the icing on the cake.
I recommend using AME services because they give their clients a very personalized service that is difficult to find from other marketing companies.
I appreciate all you have done, it was a good experience. During my two consultations with Penny she was professional, knowledgeable, and understood the plight of authors today.
Penny and her amazing AME team have debunked the old theory: You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Yes, you can! The great thing about AME is that you can choose from a multiple of promo plans that you believe might be to your best benefit by following their recommendations. There is absolutely no pressure to upgrade to a larger program. Their attention to your campaign makes you feel like you’re their only client and they’re with you every step of the way. Solid experience really is the best teacher! Even to an old dog.
A few days ago I changed my book’s categories and some of the keywords on Amazon. It got me from an overall sales rank of 2,000/5,000 to the top 100 overall.
I met Penny many years ago when she spoke at The Whidbey Island Writers Conference. I was so impressed with her presentation and her later book Red Hot Internet Publicity that when it came time to market my book I called Penny. The experience has been exceptional. Information comes to me regularly about the process and if I have a question it is answered immediately. I recommend Penny and Author Marketing Experts as the best marketing gurus out there.

Penny Sansevieri and the team at Author Marketing Experts have helped me understand the power of advertising on the Internet and promoted my newest book in ways I did not know existed. They also helped me improve my web site so that visitors would find it chock full of relevant information. The team was able to reach the target audience for my book, Differentiating Reading Instruction, and hugely improved the number of visitors to my web site. Their use of the web on my behalf gave me a presence beyond my expectations. Their unique marketing techniques worked beautifully for my book. I plan to maintain this terrific business relationship!
Thank you for showing me the ways of Internet marketing! Your counsel has been wise and your efforts wonderfully laudable. When my next story is ready, I'll be back.
-B.L., Author in Multiple Media
What a wonderful experience! Working with Author Marketing Experts was a pleasure from start to finish. This was the easiest marketing I've ever done, and I got great results.
I love the team at Author Marketing Experts and these programs really helped boost my book exposure and I got some really great reviews! Love it! I highly recommend these campaigns!
Working with AME was a wonderful experience. On the side, I ran a PR firm for 16 years. I can tell a quality outfit. In fact, I might be a little in love with you all now. LOL Great results and terrific advice on what to do next.
...during the promotion my book rose to the number 1 position in two fiction categories and soared into the top 50 overall. My reviews increased tenfold and the sales that were generated after the promotion ended increased significantly.
She (Penny) and her team are fantastic. They delivered reviews, exposure on social media and got my name out there. With so many books being published every day, that alone is a feat...Penny and her team are the BEST! I have a new book coming out soon and after that I will absolutely hire Penny and her team again to promote me and my work.
Thank you, Penny, and everyone else, for all your work on this. It was a great experience for me and my best novel launch to date. I've learned a ton from you gals and hope to work with you again in the future. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge!
I first came into contact with Penny Sansevieri and the AME book marketing team during the early promotion of The Offering. As soon as I started working on the marketing process with the AME team, I was truly awed by their stellar competence, their customer-friendly attitude, and their unique capacity to always be there for you 24/7 to help you promote your book with an effective marketing campaign that's specifically customized to meet your individual needs and the specific genre profile and marketing requirements of your book. Thanks to a world-class communications system and Penny Sansevieri's truly extraordinary marketing gifts, the AME team helped me launch a totally stress-free, brilliantly targeted multi-level marketing campaign that made a huge difference for my book. For the marketing campaign of my next novel, it's going to be AME all the way! It's great to know that.

The AME team delivered a solid book launch for Fallen Angel and set up what has turned out to be an easily sustainable marketing program. Thanks to the groundwork they laid, my book continues to sell at a steady rate, over a year later.
I wanted to thank you personally and your staff for your efforts on my behalf in our recent campaign. I've had some amazing results ! So, thanks again for all your efforts--they really do seem to be paying off with tangible results!
Penny and her team helped us get some top reviewers for the book which created the early momentum we needed. The People Factor now has nearly 200 reviews on Amazon in just six months. Thank you Author Marketing Experts.
-The People Factor
I self-published my book, Split at the Root, but had no idea of the work that awaited me when it came to marketing it. Penny and the AME team took me under their wings and patiently guided me in learning the tricks of the marketing trade. Within the year, my book reached the #1 position on Amazon's Bestseller list in its category. I am ever-so pleased I signed up with AME.
Penny, you are the woman, thanks for showing me the way with APE. I appreciate your help and guidance promoting it!
I used the services of Author Marketing Experts recently to promote a novel that had already been out in the public realm for three years. It's a daunting task but AME helped me get reviews; gave my book visibility; gave me invaluable pointers. I'd been involved with several other marketing agencies since 2009 and AME gave me the best pointers which led to sales and readers. I highly recommend their services, their integrity, and their expertise. You won't be sorry.
-Christine M. Whitehead
For any aspiring author who thinks his or her book will just magically become a world-wide best seller once it's completed...prepare for the shock of your life. I asked my editor/publisher, who was the best publicist in the literary business. She didn't hesitate. Penny Sansevieri of Author Marketing Experts is the difference maker because they create a path that expands public awareness of Legends Lost in a logical, professional, and successful way. Think of it this way: a good business person hires people to do the job that he or she cannot do. If you're lacking in marketing skills, you'd better think about how you're going to get it done. Does this cost money? Of course, but doesn't everything?
You and your staff at Author Marketing Experts were instrumental in giving my self-published baby some visibility and traction. Your suggested overhauls to my website, social networking, SEO and blogging guidelines (which I followed by posting twice a week for three years straight) was pure gold for honing my message and growing my platform. Though it has taken five years, I am one of those success stories that you write about. So thank you!
-Stephanie Bennett Vogt
Kudos to Penny Sansavieri and her team at Author Marketing Experts. You guys are the Greyhound bus of on-line book marketing. What a relief to leave the driving in such capable hands. Your professional expertise provided on-line contacts and exposure that continue to gain marketing opportunities for this new author. Thank you for creating the media buzz so desperately needed. One blogger's review already has more than 8800 hits in the first six weeks. That's more people than I could ever reach on my own!AME: the best one stop on-line marketing s hop out there!
My experience with Author Marketing Experts has been beyond superb! As a new children’s author, AME went above and beyond to make sure I got the support I needed. With their help, my book received stellar reviews on numerous blog sites and Amazon. AME also helped me become a guest author at the Seattle Children’s Museum, as well as a guest on the Q13 Fox Morning show, my first live television interview! I could not recommend working with their team more!
