Breeana Puttroff is lifelong lover of books who is now an author, editor, and ravenous consumer of fantasy and science fiction. She’s a former teacher and a current homeschooling mom, and she holds a B.A. in English and an M.Ed. in Literacy. Editing is her favorite part of the writing process (except for that moment where a plot magically begins to come together, usually when she’s in the shower.) She loves to help other writers take their awesome work to the next level by patching up plot holes, sharpening sentences, and all the other little things that take a book from good to amazing. She loves to meet other writers, so go ahead and stop by to visit at www.breeanaputtroff.net.
My ideal client is someone who will work with and learn from me to keep the message going long after our time together ends. It doesn't matter how much you know already–only that you're willing to learn. While I love working with authors of YA, Romance, and Literary Fiction, all who have creative ideas and a good attitude are welcome.
|Working with Melissa and Novel Publicity to spread awareness of my Sullivan series has been a joy! She really gets my brand, and my fans love the fun promotions she puts together for launch events and the day-to-day discussions and contest she leads in my Street Team (which she set up, too!). We've been working together for over two years now, and we've been especially successful in running promotions on Facebook and Goodreads. I look forward to continuing marketing my books with Melissa. I'm so glad I found her!|

Working with Novel Publicity has changed my professional life! Melissa Storm is an amazing – brilliant, talented, creative – individual, who truly cares about her clients. Best of all, her services work!

|When I needed someone to help repair a broken website, Melissa was amazingly fast and incredibly detailed. She documented a list of questions to help pinpoint the problem areas, researched options and provided lightening fast results. She gave me a budget to expect and kept me updated on the budget progress. She offered suggestions and alternatives to improve the site and has become one of my ‘most trusted experts'. I highly recommend her for website development – you won't be disappointed!|
