Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 31, 2009
The principal of Marcus Bryan and Associates, Marsha Cook, a long standing member of the Chicago Literary Agent Arena has launched a new company. Michigan Avenue Media, is a marketing firm which in addition to various public relation services, will market, mentor, and increase the exposure of today's self published authors. Mrs. Cook decided that the self publishing market lacked a voice and its authors needed a vehicle to catapult them into the arenas that were reserved for large scale publishers. Michigan Avenue Media has teamed up with several self publishing houses to act as the marketing arm for their authors.
- Marsha Cook has self published five titles, all of which are available on Amazon and other national retailers, including her companies website, http://www.michiganavenuemedia.com. After years of working with clients who felt disenchanted with the current publishing trends she saw her existing clients succeeding in this new medium. Michigan Avenue Media is also excited about the new technological advances in e-books, which will also be a large component to her client's success.
- In addition to the launch of this new division, please check out the great works from these exciting new authors all of whom are independently published and as talented if not more than traditionally published authors.
Norman Borine, author of Dancing With the Stars, and King Dragon: The World of Bruce Lee has mastered the art of storytelling of days past with such intensity and an overwhelming use of interesting facts that makes these novels some of the most entertaining biographical accounts on the market today. Mr. Borine was a close personal friend of the Lee family and used those insights with the help of Mr. Lee's wisdom of the martial arts to take us on a tour of the life that Bruce Lee created for the world to watch, and a peek at what everyone didn't see. In his other biographical work we are entrenched in the days and nights of a contract player for the golden era of Hollywood. This book is full of personal photographs of some of the celebrities we watch year after year as part of the classics. This heartwarming narrative shows us what we might of missed of the days of old, and what we wish we could see today, class and style.
In addition, Dr. Gil Snider, a neurosurgeon practicing in Virginia, takes his vast medical expertise and fictionalizes an alarming trend to a New York hospital in his medical thriller, Brain Warp. Dr. Snider takes us into international settings and well manicured plots of espionage and European Organized Crime, all circumventing to an outbreak in New York and the plight of those enlisted to fix this plague of neuron-toxins that take the lives of a series of critically ill vagrants.
Our final showcased author is Robert Raymond, author of, It Starts Now: Key Business Principles to Achieving Success. Mr. Raymond takes an interesting approach to developing and succeeding in business. Taking his years of experience into account, he uses anecdotal tales from his own successful business career, and applies them to a must read for any person looking to set up their own empire. Mr. Raymond gives us insight on sitting with a banker at the beginning, to the depths of deciding a serious change is needed to survive once all has been tried.
- Marsha Cook is also looking for additional clients who are interested in joining her already successful client base who rely solely on self publishing. Michigan Avenue Media has several different packages for public relations services which can be tailored to meet everyone's budget, which she feels many similar marketing agencies are unwilling to do. Michigan Avenue Media is ready to apply over 20 years of experience in a standard literary agency into this new venture which can make today's unnoticed author into tomorrows NY Times best seller.
