Katharine is the consummate publicist in every sense of the word. Both innovative and creative, together with skillful writing, and abundance of charm makes Katharine a force to reckon with. I endorse her wholeheartedly and suspect once you’ve worked with her, you will too!
—Patti Straus, PR professional formerly with Bloomberg Businessweek, Money Magazine and Time Inc.
Katharine Carroll is not only a top flight publicist who garnered me raves but also hooked me up with my new publisher - who gave me a new two-book deal. Katharine has worked closely with publishers and media for years. I found her by asking a friend at a top Manhattan PR firm for the name ofpublicists who specialize in book publicity, promotion and marketing for individual authors. He only gave me one name. It is crucial to have someone who believes in your work. Publicists should get great coverage, using traditional media in a competitive market - but now also need to set up your online platform and build a buzz online about your book. Katharine has now partnered with marketing and web wizard John Tintera to createa one-stop-shopping firm - Trowbridge & Tintera - designed to help new authors succeed and seasoned writers advance further. T & T redesigned my website in one day, adding videos and reorganizing the site, which now looks great. I am now able to update, add and subtract from it myself, as needed. They are a great team, very reasonable for a struggling novelist, and I cannot recommend them enough.
—Kieran Crowley, New York Times bestselling author of HACK.
John is truly one of the most energetic, enthusiastic, and engaged marketing pros with whom I have ever worked. He possesses that rare combination of knowledge and know-how, and he truly gets behind the books he promotes. Every editor and every author should be so lucky as to have John work on one of their titles.
—Kelli Christiansen, Publisher/Founder at Chicago Book Review
John always makes my job easy. As a graphic designer I depend on clear art direction and a thorough understanding of the requirements of any given project, and for the ten plus years I’ve worked with John — producing print and digital marketing material for a wide variety of projects — he has provided this art direction in spades. John is informed, focused, and professional. He’s also infectiously enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with. I recommend him highly.
