NEW YORK – While attending the BookExpo America (BEA) this May at Javits Convention Center in New York City, SBPRA author Laura Burke was interviewed by Stephen Kaufman for his cable TV show, “Hanshi’s World.” Burke is the author of the murder mystery If Walls Could Scream, of which Kaufman opines: “This is a goodie. The mountains and rural farmland of North Carolina provide the setting for the mysterious disappearance of two teenage girls who simply vanish. I’m not going to go into the ‘serial’ thing about whether or not that is the case, but I had issues with trying to figure out who was actually responsible for whatever is going on. I purposely write this review in the manner that I am because the book is that intense and has the reader constantly guessing and then discovering that they are completely off base in their assumptions. Laura Burke has the genre down pat.”
Burke traveled from Florida to join her publisher, Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency, which represents over 10,000 writers, at their exhibitor’s booth at BEA, along with 25 of her fellow SBPRA authors. Strategic travels to book expos worldwide, supporting and encouraging its authors to attend to give them unique marketing opportunities. SBPRA is fast extending its global outreach through such venues, as well as by its focus on marketing through the Internet and social media platforms. Its foreign rights sales are also on the rise.
