Hi, I’m Kate Tilton and I love helping others succeed.
My work at Kate Tilton’s Author Services, LLC allows me to connect authors with readers and help authors reach their goals. I like to call this upscaling, which to me means taking a business from its current stage to the next level.
I work with authors of all publication paths, from New York Times and USA Today bestsellers, award winners, and six-figure authors, to pre-publication authors, to authors somewhere in the middle. By coming alongside authors as a partner, I turn scary and overwhelming things like marketing, upscaling, and finding an audience into tools we use to make an author’s dream a reality. I achieve this mission with one-on-one partnerships with authors and free resources on this site and many others.
You may have seen me in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, RT Book Reviews, or on Kobo Writing Life, or The Book Designer sharing my insight into the current publishing and marketing world. I’ve also shared my knowledge of the industry by contributing to The Self-Publisher’s Ultimate Resource Guide and by presenting at Book Expo America, as well as other venues. Kate Tilton’s Author Services, LLC was founded in 2010 after I was hired to work with a New York Times bestselling author as an assistant while I was finishing my last year of high school. The new challenge of running my own business fueled my creative right-brain and gave me the perfect job for my detail-oriented left brain.
My creativity shines brightest when working on a problem or discovering new ways to do business. But for a more traditional form of creativity, I pen the occasional poem and enjoy the art of pottery and printmaking. I’m a cat-lover and fan of many geeky things. On most days you can find me curled up with tea and a good book, plotting world takeover, cuddling with my cats, or connecting authors and readers in any way I can.

Lucheni and Link, Office
Lucheni (gray) and Link (orange) were rescued from a crazy guy selling them in a Walmart parking lot for $3 each while feeding them human baby food. Needless to say, their luck quickly turned around when they arrived at Kate’s house. When they are not sleeping you can find Lucheni sitting high on his cat tower surveying all that is his and Link opening the cabinets and doors looking for an adventure. Lucheni was named after a character from the German musical Elizabeth. Link was named after Link from the Legend of Zelda games. You can see lots of their adorable pictures on Kate’s Instagram feed.
