Rob wrote the bible on book marketing!
Rob is the authority on marketing and selling books. His popular resource, Sell Your Book Like Wildfire (published by Writers Digest), is considered the bible of book marketing. Authors around the world praise it as one of the essential guides every writer must read before launching a new book. Rob is also a contributing expert to Book Business Magazine and a frequent speaker at publishing industry conferences and trade associations.
Before founding Wildfire Marketing, Rob worked for 10 years as a regional and national sales manager in the textile industry. Then, he started his own business as a self-published author, spoke to more than 35,000 people at over 170 events, and generated a consistent six-figure income for 8 years as an entrepreneur. His national media appearances include interviews on the CBS Early Show, CNN Radio, and the Los Angeles Times. He has a degree in marketing from Auburn University.
When Rob isn’t consulting, you can find him fly-fishing in search of a monster trout, bouncing down a rocky trail on his mountain bike, or loudly playing his drums. However, his wife, Ashley, prefers that he join her to quietly paint, work in their garden, or watch Jane Austen movies. They reside near Atlanta, Georgia.
