The Book Experts

Founded by a best-selling author, Dr. Rissy's Writing & Marketing has books at its heart. Many of our team members have experience working for Morissa's publishing company, GenZ Publishing, and more than one are indie authors themselves.

Our team has worked on over a hundred books, guiding authors through the launch and beyond.

We help improve book sales and boost the presence of authors by providing a full-service marketing approach from our team of experts who get it because they’ve been there, done that.

Full Package Case Study

Cyrus McQueen came to us to promote his soon-to-be- released nonfiction book. We conducted Amazon and Twitter ads for the release, optimized his website, and helped advertise his upcoming events, which sold out!

Using our public relation services, we got Cyrus scheduled on 3 podcasts with 12 leads and featured on high authority websites. All in under two months.

Social Media Management

Social media should be part of every best-selling author’s branding strategy. It’s on social media that you can connect with readers, share beautiful organic posts that get engagement, and offer one more touch-point in a five-touch strategy. The more times a potential buyer sees your book, the better. 

We’re expert at bring “bookstagrams” to life. Check out the Zenith Instagram here.

Our team can do quirky content, too. Check out the Facebook page for the author of a queer, anime-inspired science fiction novel.

One of the most important parts of selling your book is being found.

We can do three types of SEO:

  2. Amazon book listing optimizations
  3. SEO copywriting, usually in the form of blogs

SEO helps people find your work, whether that be through Google’s expansie search engine or through Amazon search engine, which links directly to your books.


Blogging is a huge part of SEO. Updating your blog not only establishes you as a tastemaker and industry expert, but it also gives you content for your newsletters.

The GenZ Publishing blog offers great content on publishing, books, and writing.

"Ok--I honestly don't know where to begin with this, but Morissa and her team went above and beyond in every aspect of helping me with my debut novel. They were always proactive about getting me the best interviews, podcasts, and features in articles. In addition, they helped me with my website and SEO so that when people searched for me, they FOUND me !! 🙂 They also assisted with ads, visuals for my social medias, and responded to my anxieties that I sent in the form of questions at ungodly hours of the night lol. Please believe me when I say this: if you're searching for anyone to help with promotion or SEO or honestly anything to advertise your product, Morissa and her team are IT. It doesn't get better than that.”

"Thank you for your time, tenacity, and effort! You and the team took my little book and gave it a fighting chance! I’m indebted to you for exhibiting such patience and kindness. You and Rissys team took an overwhelming undertaking and made it feasible!

Thank you for always being attentive and mindful. It saddens me to have to stop our regular correspondence but, I take solace in the fact that our working paths will likely cross again. (I’ve got more books in me)!"
