Sam is a truly original and creative thinker who always has fascinating things to say about books and how to market them more effectively.
— Sophie Hannah, author
Sam brings her considerable knowledge of social media and the publishing business to this exciting new project.
— Joanne Harris, author 
Sam is on a mission when it comes to sharing advice and tips with authors. She is a fountain of knowledge and I, for one, have found her understanding of the online world an inspiration.
— Amanda Jennings, Author
Sam combines the savvy of a social media guru who knows the publishing business inside out - with the lovely warm-heartedness of an industry figure who has generously championed new authors and young publishers. ”
— Felicia Yap, Author
Sam is a fantastic person to work with - she’s full of enthusiasm and huge ideas, but also someone who thinks through the details enough to make those ideas turn into reality.
— Katie Sadler, Senior Marketing Manager, Fiction, HarperCollins
Sam, having worked in and around traditional publishing, and hearing the same questions being asked again and again, has become a voice of support in the industry for those that are trying so hard to navigate it, usually by themselves.
