It’s Almost August 13th!

Tomorrow, two amazing things will happen. The first and most important is that I’ll be celebrating my 1st birthday! I’ll finally become an adult, and will have more free reign to do as I please in the office.

The slightly less important second thing is that August 13th is the launch date for black CATastrophy.

Really excited to announce that we're about to launch a special division of the firm just for indie authors. And guess who's in charge! #blackCATastrophy will provide the same services as Alexis Chateau PR, but at discounted rates. The website is also completely customized for your needs. No more filtering through #business and #nonprofit posts to see what's specifically meant for you. Check it out at Official launch date is August 13th (my #birthday), but #indieauthors or #selfpublished writers who sign on with us before launch, will lock in at the lowest rates we'll likely ever have. We're also really interested in #networking with #bookreviewers, so if that's you, shoot us an email. Thanks!

If you’ve been following the blog, hanging out with us on social media, or poked around our website for a bit, then you probably have a good idea of what this means. If not, I’ll explain.

What is black CATastrophy?

black CATastrophy is a special division of Alexis Chateau PR, that was created to suit the needs and budgets of independent authors. Our primary aim is to help indie authors create masterpieces that they are confident about selling for more than 99 cents on Amazon.

From high quality covers, to thorough editing, media coverage, and social media marketing, we want to help indie authors who are serious about their craft, compete with the big boys who had a publishing house to do all the hard work for them.

We believe there’s a lot more to self-publishing than pushing out a book with no budget, and no plan. Self-publishing is about maintaining control of your work, while still giving your book every possible advantage to succeed in the market.

That takes time, effort, dedication, skills… and a budget. If you have the dedication, we can help you with the rest.

Grab our $25 Deal Before It’s Too Late

As many of you know, we’ve been running a $25 per hour promo for authors who sign with us before August 13th at midnight EST. After August 13th our hourly rate will range from $30 to $80.

So if you’re one of the many authors who sent email queries about working with black CATastrophy, or you’re hearing about us for the very first time, now would be a good time to sign on with our team.

Before you do, be sure to check out our FAQs page. It will give you a better understanding of the how, why and what of our public relations and marketing services for authors.

Not Just for Self-Published Authors

Believe it or not, we’re not just looking to be hired by independent authors. We want this to be a space where readers, reviewers, and short story writers can feel comfortable hanging out.

We want everyone to share their best stories, talk about the best books they’ve ever read, give us some effective writing tips, and build an audience. For readers, we want to be the site you trust to point you in the right direction of everything from old classics, to up-and-coming writers, to the best indie veterans.

Interested in contributing to the movement? Then like, comment, share, and check out our submissions page here to get published on the site!

Got more questions for me? Or just looking for an excuse to say hello to a super cool kitty? Then send me an email, or use any of the contact forms on our website. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

    Reblogged this on Nowata Press and commented:
    You’ll want to check this out – having a PR team for an indie author could very well mean the difference between languishing in obscurity and hitting the best seller’s lists :-).

        You really need to have a party :-). A little meet and greet. I’m sure there would be plenty of folks willing to slip you a little cat-nip during the event ;-).
