Offering Virtual Assistant & Podcast Services to Authors

Is your mind spinning thinking of all you want to do to market your book in the new year? Our to lists just keep getting longer yet our time seems to be getting shorter.

With that in mind, I wanted to interview one of my favorite gals, virtual assistant, podcast producer, and fiction author, Christen Krumm, to talk about how she got started as a Virtual Assistant to help authors with their book marketing, and later their podcast production.

Christen and I met while we were both working behind the scenes for some of our favorite authors and podcast hosts who happen to collaborate and contribute to each other’s content frequently. Shoutout to Ruth Schwenk, Tricia Goyer and Kristi Clover just to name a few.

Wondering what kind of virtual assistant and podcast services you could offer to authors to help with book marketing? Christen Krumm is giving all the scoop on the Book Marketing Mania podcast with Kim Stewart.
