Jen Halligan offers literary publicity and a wide range of author services.

Jen specializes in YA and NA fiction, as that’s where her heart is, and building author platforms. She loves working one-on-one with authors and helping them achieve their dreams.

Whether you’re looking for full time publicity, or would just like to schedule a blog tour, cover reveal, or other online promotion, Jen can help! Publicity is not a one-size-fits-all business. A package can be customized to meet your needs and budget. For more information check out the website here.
