What is black CATastrophy?


black CATastrophy is the special division for indie authors at Alexis Chateau PR. Alexis Chateau PR is a public relations firm, based in Atlanta, that works with clients who usually fall outside the radar of bigger agencies.

Will you publish my book?

No. Unfortunately, we do not offer our publishing services to the public. This is only available to members of our team as when funded by the company, the company owns the rights to the material. However, we can:

  1. Coach you through the independent publishing process.
  2. Connect you with resources to self-publish your book.
  3. Assist you with building a large enough buzz online to hopefully attract the interest of literary agents and publishing houses over time.

We charge an hourly rate of $60.

Can I promote my book on your website?


Absolutely! In fact, we have many different advertising options for indie authors. We charge a small fee of $25 for ads.

You do not need to be an ongoing client to advertise on our website. However, clients who work with us on a regular basis can access virtually all our advertising options at no additional cost as long as we have available openings.

Any unauthorized promotional links dropped in the comments section will be deleted.

Are there any kind of novelists or writers you don’t work with? Or any types of books or blogs you would not promote?

We don’t accept projects that violate our code of ethics, which is publicly shared here. Projects that would violate our code of ethics are those which are racist, xenophobic, homophobic, and which support misogyny or misandry.

We also do not accept religious or political projects of any kind.

Do you only work with indie authors who are novelists?

No. We specialize in working with novelists, but we also love working with independent bloggers and their websites. Additionally, we’re open to working with non-fiction writers, screenwriters, playwrights, and poets.
