What Can Author Rx Do For You?

Have you reached the point in your career where you find it impossible to keep up with your book deadlines, fan mail, speaking engagements, blog interviews, emails, and social networking?  Every time you sit down to write, do you end up spending more time checking your email than writing?  If so, then it’s time to hire an Author’s Assistant.  Increase your writing time by engaging Author Rx, LLC to promote your published work.  Everyone knows that good publicity can make or break a book release, but nothing ruins a book like not finishing it in time for your deadline!  It’s time to get some help. . . if only to preserve your sanity!

Client Testimonials

“I have worked with other author’s assistants but Melissa Jolly is a gem who stands out above the rest. Melissa has worked with me as I moved up from a midlist author to a NY Times and USA Today bestseller. She helps me with social media, my speaking engagements, is a liaison to my fans, teachers, librarians, and my publisher – and has even helped me plot my latest book. I don’t know what I would have done without her these past four years! She takes all the pressure off of me so I have time to write my next book!”
Simone Elkeles New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author

“Authors always have too much to do and never enough time. Melissa is fast and professional. She takes care of all the things I need to do but can scarcely remember about so that I can concentrate on my writing.”
Courtney MilanNew York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author

“Since becoming an indie author in 2011, I have become a publisher, promoter and a marketer, leaving me with little time to write. But then I hired Melissa Jolly and I can finally breathe again, not to mention write! Melissa is super friendly and easy to work with. The first thing Melissa did was help me get organized and set priorities. In less than a month, she helped me with my newsletter, website, twitter, Facebook, contests and promotional items. She has great ideas and has quickly become indispensable.”
Theresa RaganNew York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author

“There’s no denying that I’m a type A perfectionist who has trouble letting other people do things for me. I never thought I’d ever be able to trust an assistant to take over some of my author-related tasks. Then I met Melissa. She’s meticulous, organized, web-savvy, and all around awesome. I have 100% faith that every task I give her will be done not only well, but possibly even better than I could have done it. I hope she never retires! I’d be lost without her!”

“Melissa is wonderful to work with. She is organized, punctual, and has her fingers in everything book related. She’s an asset for sure!”
Shannon GreenlandAward Winning Author of THE SPECIALISTS series

“I’m so excited Melissa was recommended to me. I don’t know how I would function without her expertise, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the book industry.”
“Fabulous job critiquing. You are one helluva beta reader, Mel!”
S. E. Green | Author of KILLER INSTINCT

“Melissa’s work on improving my social media profile and organizing my life as an author and presenter has made a large impact on my book sales and appearances. I have twice as many followers and have more time to work on writing, speaking and blogging. I do not know what I did before I started working with her!”
Amy AlessioAuthor, Librarian, Presenter on Vintage Cookbooks and Crafts

“Let me say, that as a creative professional who has a terrible time keeping my act together, relying on Mel to get it done is so comforting. No more stressing out about what I might be forgetting. Mel is meticulous. . .a hardcore organization warrior who won’t let anything slip through the cracks. She asks the right questions, makes good decisions and uses clear, common-sense thinking. At the same time, her personality is kind, caring and witty. She’s fun to work with and reassuring to have on your side. I feel very lucky to have found her!”
Jessica Bosari | Content Creator

“I am a control freak- I’ll admit it and that has made it very stressful and sometimes impossible for me to delegate the work that needs to be done for my photography business. About a year ago I met Melissa and I had a feeling that with her I could rest easy and know that she was taking good care of things. I was right. She handled my direct advertising and also did some blogging for me. Her creativity and writing skills really made my business look awesome. Melissa went above and beyond the call of duty and always had great ideas. Another great thing about Melissa is her trustworthiness. I had to give her the passwords to a few of my accounts and not once did I worry that she would take advantage of me. I really could go on and on. She’s fast, efficient, smart, knowledgeable, creative and, on top of it all, she’s a good person. A total package:) Feel free to contact me directly if you have specific questions about my experience. Melissa is the best of the best.”
