"Working closely with Amy has been one of the best experiences of my publishing life. I was very much in need of a strong professional in sales and marketing, and a professional friend in New York suggested I meet Amy. I wanted someone with strong publishing, and more importantly, children’s publishing experience. Amy brought that and more. I have marveled at her work ethic, her good humor, and her truly clear strategic thinking. I could not endorse a publicity and marketing professional, especially one in publishing, more than I do Amy Burton Storey." - Margaret Quinlin, President and Publisher, Peachtree Publishing Company Inc.
"Amy has the rare ability to see through traditional marketing and publicity 'walls' for publishers and has a passion for literacy and engagement at all reading levels. I know very few people who have her experience and vision and she also happens to be a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her." -- Eric Heidemann, Fujii Associates
"I had the great pleasure of connecting with Amy when I was recently mentoring a young children’s book publisher. My mentee was new to publishing and navigating the complexities of setting up her company and releasing one of their first books. I turned to Amy to provide us with some advice about product launch strategy, and she did not disappoint. In the space of about 40 minutes, she was able to articulate a host of intelligent—and exciting—possibilities for outreach, engagement, and promotion. I watched happily as my mentee beamed during our Zoom call, furiously writing down notes and thanking Amy for providing so many wonderful insights. Experienced as I am in this space, I too came away from our call with new perspectives on how to launch a book successfully." -- Frances Baca, Principal and Creative Director, Frances Baca Design and Consulting
"You truly got to the essence of the book and added some great ideas about getting it out into the world. We are so appreciative for your help." - Gerald Drose, author of Bird Gotta Land
"[Amy] can see the potential and immediately match it up with a path to success, drawing upon her vast knowledge of marketing and publicity to achieve the right marketing mix."
- Ellen Myrick, Chief Marketer, Publisher Spotlight
"The level of professionalism and expertise that she brings to our sales and marketing group is invaluable; her insight into strategic planning and brand building has brought Peachtree to a new level...Amy’s ability to quickly learn markets with which she is less familiar is without parallel." - Lynn Hildebrandt, Sales Director, Peachtree Publishing Company Inc.
“If you are serious about bringing an impactful book to market and building a transformative author brand, I strongly recommend working with Amy. As a Certified Professional Coach, 2xTEDx Speaker and Chief Communications Officer of a $2 billion company, I’ve worked intently to build a personal platform focused on well-being at work and every aspect of life. But after spending years conducting research, interviews and writing a great book, unraveling the complicated publishing and book promotion process felt overwhelming. Impressed with her stellar credentials and business-minded perspective, I turned to Amy for guidance. She provided me with excellent strategic insights in selecting the best publisher for my needs and long-term brand goals.” – Shira Miller, author of the forthcoming book Free and Clear
