Nationwide (BlackNews.com) â€“Virgo Girl Media, a digital media firm, located in New Rochelle, NY, has announced a partnership with Strebor Books to enhance the online visibility for authors of color. Virgo Girl Media will work with Strebor Book authors to promote their brand on a digital platform. Virgo Girl Media will interview each author and share the piece on its blog and social media outlets. In return, Strebor Books will post interviews on their Author of the Week and/or Book of the Day pages.
The Virgo Girl Media blog will be used as a platform to spotlight creative entrepreneurs such as bloggers, writers, authors, and the creative artist community as a whole, who are turning their passion into profit. Our goal for the VGM blog is to create a movement in the literary world where urban-cultured authors and writers are recognized and celebrated in the same manner as mainstream authors. Publishing houses are wonderful for authors who are lucky enough to be chosen. However, in a world where so many are self-publishing there should be a mainstream marketing option, and growing your online audience and promoting yourself digitally is just that. By using digital platforms, authors can now engage and interact directly with their audience with the click of a button, cutting out the middleman, says founder Missy B. Salick.
Founder and New York Times bestselling author Zane of Strebor Books was thrilled to learn of the movement and be one of the first publishers to jump on board. With publishing houses working with digital influencers, and authors taking advantage of the platform its a win-win for both parties, says Salick, who hopes to increase the digital engagement within the urban-cultured community.
