“Babs is a fantastic Author Assistant, always ready and willing to promote my books on many social media sites. Amongst all the daily tasks she performs helping her authors, she’s always available (or makes time to help) for special projects and needs that might arise. Reluctantly (lol) I highly recommend Babs Hightower as an Author’s Personal Assistant (She’s so good at what she does, I’m afraid she might get too busy to assist me). ”

High marks as a Personal Assistant from Keta Diablo Romance Author

“Babs and I have worked together on various projects for over the past ten years.  She has handled blog tours, promotions of new release, cover reveals and more.

She is dependable and a wiz with Goodreads.  She likes to help authors in need and goes above and beyond when she can.  She knows what it’s like to have to get reviews, beta readers and anything else the author might need.” by Rachel Thompson, Founder and CEO, BadRedhead Media

“Barbara Hightower is a professional publicist who focuses on the needs of all she works with or for in the virtual world of promotions. I have known Barbara for many years, working with her at first as a blogger. I would host her authors and their books on my blog. Later, we worked together at a small ebook publisher located in Colorado. Eventually, we collaborated and began a cozy mystery website, which transitioned into an all genre website complete with an emagazine. Barbara is creative; thinking outside the box for authors, promotions companies, and publishing companies, in order to provide the best experiences for everyone. I have very much enjoyed all of my interactions with Barbara and hope to continue working with her far in the future. ~ Amber, Sapphyria’s Books and Sapphyria’s Book Promotions.”

“I’ve known Barbara Hightower for many years. She belonged in my reader group and started to edit for me shortly after. She did beta reading and editing whenever I needed some help. She is a hard worker, and you’ll be very happy with her work.” Jodi Olson
