Literary Landmarks and Stories



The team at Books Forward have sent Big Blend editors / radio hosts / travelers Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith on a special Love your Parks Tour Story Mission to document as many Literary Landmarks and Stories as possible.

Books Forward is the #1 book publicity and marketing firm for more than 700 authors, and several boutique publishers and imprints by the big New York publishing houses. Their authors and books get exposure to between an audience of 2 million and 20 million, on average. New York Times, USA Today bestsellers, national book award winners and debut authors are all part of their family. Non-fiction, fiction, memoir, YA, middle grade, children’s books, self-improvement, business books and cookbooks are all genres they represent, if they believe in the manuscript and mission of the book. And they’ve been enthusiastically promoting clients since 2000 and, specifically, books and authors since 2005.

With nearly a half-century of cumulative experience, they create publicity campaigns that fit the strengths and life-style of the author. Some of the ways they create a splash for their authors include: TV and radio interviews, print and online coverage, website development, book tours, blogger outreach, digital marketing, Amazon optimization, and award nominations.

Through their professional publishing services, indie authors can benefit from a team of seasoned veterans from New York publishing houses. Developmental and line editing, cover design, interior layout, e-book formatting, metadata support and online distribution setup create a book for authors who do not want to wait to get their book published traditionally, but want a book that looks every bit as professional and eye-popping as those released by the major publishing houses.
