Terra Communications is a full service author marketing management company, specializing in fine fiction and narrative non-fiction. We are committed to helping keep quality literature alive by providing author marketing management services to talented new and emerging authors, as well as continuing to help guide the careers of some of the most celebrated authors in the world. We are not a literary agency, nor are we a publisher. What we do is unique, and very necessary in the 21st century literary industry. By providing career-spanning strategic marketing support to authors, we help develop and shape successful literary lives for a select roster of creative writers.
From grassroots book tours and arranging local/regional media, to cutting edge Internet Marketing with an emphasis on Social Networking, our approach has launched and supported many stellar literary careers.
Our sister company, Books In Common, is a literary events consultancy working with Community Reads Programs, All Campus/Freshman Class Reads planners, libraries, colleges, and businesses to pair them with the finest and most engaging literary voices in the country for lectures, conferences, and workshops.
For 15 years we've supported the literary careers of new/emerging authors as well as Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners, and some of the bestselling writer in the world.
A few of the authors we've worked with include Garth Stein (The Art of Racing in the Rain), Jane Smiley (Private Life and A Thousand Acres), T.C. Boyle (San Miguel and The Tortilla Curtain), Cheryl Strayed (Torch, and Wild), Ivan Doig (Worksong), Andrew McCarthy (The Longest Way Home), Jamie Ford (Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet and Songs of Willow Frost), and Christina Baker Kline (Orphan Train), just to name a few.
