How can I help you?
Let’s chat! I have worked in publishing since 2010 and have helped hundreds of authors over the years, from pre-publication writers to New York Times bestsellers. I work with self-published/indie authors, hybrid authors, and traditionally published authors. I turn scary and overwhelming things like marketing into tools we use to make your publishing dream a reality.
- Are you thinking about publishing a book?
- Are you frustrated trying to sort through the marketing and publishing advice out there?
- Do you wish you could sit down with someone and ask all your publishing and book marketing questions?
- Are you struggling to make sense of the publishing process? Do terms like print on demand, offset printing or book distribution confuse you?
- Are you spending more time reading books and blogs about publishing than you are publishing your own book?
- Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed by all the information about publishing and book marketing?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, I can help.
During our call, you will be able to ask any questions you have about the publishing process, book marketing, and business strategy. My goal is to send you off with a clear head and action plan to make your publishing dream a reality.
Is this a good fit for you?
Consultations are great for:
- Quick questions about publishing
- Tips on how to improve your book marketing
- Gaining clarity on what to do next (with all the advice out there it can be overwhelming!)
Our consultation will be over the phone, Skype, or Google Meet. Sessions last up to one hour.

You will immediately feel in good hands.”

What I really needed was to work through ideas, and after doing just that with so many people before, her approach is what finally got me thinking beyond my marketing rut. Once the ideas started to flow, they wouldn’t stop, and I now have a solid plan to take my marketing to the next level while focusing on what I enjoy most—writing.”
“Kate was a great help when it came to figuring out the details for my upcoming launch. Her checklists and spreadsheets are invaluable– especially for someone who struggles with organization. Thanks Kate!”
“As soon as I signed my book contract with a publisher, I was in a panic! Thankfully, I found Kate Tilton, who took me by the hand and coached me through all of the big jobs necessary to successfully launch a book. From developing a subscriber list and sending monthly newsletters; to determining where and how to spend marketing dollars; to following a publication to-do list; to opening necessary accounts, such as on Goodreads, BookFunnel and Bookbub: Kate Tilton knew every in and out to waylay my anxiety and make the most of my efforts. I launched my book, learned a lot and had fun in the process. Thank you, Kate!”

“Wow! I just had a consultation with Kate, and it was such a great experience! I needed a gut check and a second set of eyes to discuss my author business. Kate was wonderful– knowledgeable, experienced, and pragmatic. It was so nice to have a one-on-one with someone who not only understands the business of publishing, but also all the moving pieces that go into an author career. It was super helpful. Thank you!”
“Kate is a wealth of knowledge. I hired her for a coaching session as I was an overwhelmed first time author. I needed some guidance and help with prioritizing activities for my launch, social media being the main challenge. In one hour, Kate provided more insight than I expected and also shared a couple resources that have been very helpful. I highly recommend her.”

The quality of their work is outstanding – I think they are top notch in the author service field including – but not limited to – graphics (which is so terribly important!).”
Maureen Joyce ConnollyAuthor
“Kate is an incredible asset for any author: smart, creative, timely and efficient, I’d be lost without her! Do not hesitate, book time with her ASAP.”
Rachel ThompsonBestselling, award-winning author, and founder of BadRedhead Media
“The title Author Assistant doesn’t come close to describing what Kate does—and all at the speed of light. I can’t count the number of times that she’s thought of something for my business before I even have an inkling. It’s uncanny, and such a relief! And did I mention fast? Like blazing fast.”
“Kate approaches each project with diligence and care, and her attention to detail, desire to continue to learn, and her reliability have persuaded me to bring her into one project after another, each of which she has handled with aplomb. She’s a real professional.”
Joel FriedlanderTheBookDesigner.com Creator, Co-Founder of Book Design Templates & Book Planner
“Wind her up and let her go! Kate not only very expertly and efficiently performs the tasks I ask of her, but has become a sounding board for my business and a trusted advisor for feedback on my books and courses. Her breadth of knowledge about tech and processes is astounding, and her insights about authors and audience are invaluable.”
Carla KingAuthor & Founder of Self-Publishing Boot Camp
“Author friends, if you’re feeling buried by all the things-which-are-not-writing in your life, get yourself some help by hiring Kate Tilton. It was the best call I ever made. Kate is highly skilled, efficient, and filled with entrepreneurial energy. What’s not to love?”
Jeff GunhusUSA Today Bestselling & Award-Winning Author
“Kate is a reliable and highly competent assistant, able to handle whatever tasks I’ve been putting off because they were too complicated or fiddly for me (such as book sales reports, pricing ebooks effectively in their specific geographical markets, all sorts of things that are necessary for a self-published author, but have nothing to do with actually writing the books). Most importantly, I felt completely confident in handing over the logins and security passes she needs to do her work- she holds the keys to my online castle, and that doesn’t worry me at all.”
Guy WindsorOwner of the School of European Swordsmanship and author
“I learned so much from Kate…She helped me set up a marketing plan for the release, provided invaluable insight on the nitty gritty of reaching readers, and helped me execute each piece of our plan with confidence and integrity…I highly recommend Kate and am so grateful to have worked with her.”
“Kate Tilton is the essence of professionalism. Her competency level puts her in a class of gig-workers for authors that makes her an asset to anyone, but especially to those who need to be able to trust a highly competent person to do their work without oversight. When you care about your business, you want to work with the best. That’s Kate.”
Becca SymeFounder of the Better-Faster Academy, Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach & USA Today Bestselling Author
“Writing, publishing and marketing is a one-woman crazy game and Kate Tilton is the key to keeping my sanity and maximizing my efforts so they all reap rewards. I couldn’t do this without her. I recommend her most highly.”
Deborah CoontsNational Bestselling Author & RITA finalist
“Kate is something special, always so organized and prepared and efficient. Even better, she’s proactive, not waiting for me to think up ideas for promotion but coming up with her own. She stays on top of trends and markets and her energy and vitality are a match for her shining intelligence. She’s an absolute joy to work with, and I’m grateful to have found her—and positive you will be, too!”
Jean BrashearNew York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author
“I am a children’s book author and working on my first picture book. In this process I recognized the need to get some professional help in various areas. I engaged Kate as an author’s assistant and her impact and value has been seen immediately. She is detailed oriented, creative and strategic. She has a great sense of how social media and your online brand & presence can lead to higher engagement. I would highly recommend her services!”
Sandra L. RichardsMulti-award winning author and Managing Director at Morgan Stanley
“Kate Tilton is the most conscientious, dedicated, hardworking, and wonderful author assistant anyone could ever hope to have. I was just plain lucky when I found her and got her to take me on as one of her clients. At that time I was a confused first time author who wanted to publish my book, but I had neither the knowledge or the resources to do that. When Kate took over it was like waving a magic wand over my writing career. She guided me through the whole process and now runs and coordinates all my worldwide publishing, social media and marketing operations. She has all the right contacts, a meticulous eye for detail and is a trusted advisor without whom I cannot function. Anyone interested in a serious writing career would be lucky to have her on their team.”
