Welcome to Sassy Gal for Hire.
You may know me as Karen L. Syed, author of several romance novels and short stories.
You may know me as Karen L. Syed, president of Echelon Press Publishing.
You may know me as Karen L. Syed, former owner of The Bookshelf in Grand Prairie, Texas, and Publishers Weekly Bookseller of the Year nominee.
You may not know me at all. Until now.
In this struggling economy, it is harder than ever to stretch your dollars, or to even make a dollar. I would like to offer you my 25 years of book industry and Internet experience as an industry consultant. I’m not here to make you candidate-like promises, or to try and sell you the impossible.
I’m here to offer you my knowledge, expertise, and commitment in the production and visibility of your product. While, my strength may be in the book industry, working with authors, my services are not unique to that area. If you have a retail business or a home-based start-up, I am confident that I can help you increase your exposure/visibility and enhance your opportunities for increased revenue.
In addition to my years in the book industry, I have 15 years of retail experience. I work with the public and I make it my business to know where they are and how to reach them.
I hope you will consider me for your next book project or to help you find more customers to sell whatever product brings you joy. Please feel free to contact me for further information. To see my rates and basic offerings, please click on one of the icons below.
