Profile Summary

Georgia de Chamberet is the founder of BookBlast. The company does act as a literary agency to a limited number of authors but is primarily and editorial, PR, and consultancy service. She is not currently taking submissions for author representation. 

BookBlast works tirelessly to promote independent authors, providing smaller authors with promotional services that only authors with bigger publishing houses and blockbuster deals could hope to have at their fingertips. The company also provides translation services, another of the important services that are not readily available to independent authors. The site's blog regularly publishes interviews with authors and reviews, so is a great place to find relevant information.
