GO FROM AN UNKNOWN NAME TO A KNOWN, SEEN, AND UNDERSTOOD EXPERT AND AUTHORGET BOOK(ED) BY CHOICE
“YOUR PLATFORM ISN’T BIG ENOUGH”
“MEDIA DOESN’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE”
“NO ONE WILL BUY THIS BOOK”
Have you heard that before? That the book you’ve been dreaming of for years, that message burning deep from within, wasn’t good enough for literary agents, publishers and publicists because no one knows who you are.
You keep being told NO.
But you know that the message you have - the story you’re telling - is important.
People will resonate. Lives will be changed. Transformation will occur. If only you had the opportunity to get in front of the right people.
On your journey to be a known, published author of credibility, legitimacy, and authority…
You’ve hit wall after wall.
Rejection after rejection.
NO after NO.
You’ve probably wondered, in an attempt to self-publish + promote, the following:
- Where do I start?
- Who do I reach out to?
- How do I get more followers?
- How do I get on the TODAY Show?
- How do I make media care?
- How do I sell more books?
Which of these describes you best?
You spend a ton of time spinning your wheels on social media, yet your audience doesn’t grow
You’re either rejected by publicists or you spend thousands on ones who make lots of excuses and don’t get results
You’ve spent countless hours on Google trying to hunt down the right media contacts and figuring out what to say to them
You can’t secure media coverage because you don’t have access to the right gatekeepers for the right opportunities
ALL OF THEM?? We know—the struggle is real.
But - NEWSFLASH - you, your book, and your message aren’t the problem.
The answer isn’t starting over.
The answer is knowing HOW to talk about your book and WHO to talk to.
It’s all about who you know and how you talk to them.
You need to know who to go to and what to say to pique their interest.
Haven’t you been told a million times about the value of your network? Deep, meaningful relationships with the right people are the key to your success.
When you know who to talk to and how to share your message in a way that connects, you can (and will!) land the right media coverage.
The right media coverage not only gets you and your message in front of a larger audience, it gives you the credibility, legitimacy, and authority you need to grow your platform, sell your book, and change more lives.
Hi, I’m Heather Adams,
the Founder and CEO of Choice Media & Communications.
I credit the beginning of my career in storytelling to my time as the editor of my high school yearbook, where I learned that I was both good at storytelling, and that everyone has a unique story that deserves to be told—just like you.
I’ve spent nearly two decades in the book publishing industry, helping launch more than 100 New York Times bestsellers for some of the biggest leaders, change agents, and authors, AND for unknown authors whose compelling stories demanded they be told.
I work with elite national media outlets—from TODAY and Good Morning America to TIME and USA Today—day in and day out, to secure network package deals, exclusives, first serial rights, and more. I have spent my career building and nurturing relationships with media that have resulted in stellar placements for my clients, and I’m here to teach you how to do the same.
I will help you form the right kind of relationships to secure the right kind of media coverage for your book
