Mountain Brook Ink recently hired two new staff members in anticipation of growth and new ventures coming in 2020
Alyssa Roat has been hired as the Publicity Manager for MBI, taking over from Nikki Wright. Alyssa has served a wide variety of roles within the publishing industry at publishing houses, agencies, and newspapers as an agent, editor, writer, social media manager, and marketer. She studied Professional Writing at Taylor University. Along with being a part of the Mountain Brook Ink team, Alyssa is a literary agent at Cyle Young Literary Elite, a freelance manuscript editor, and a writer with over a hundred bylines. Alyssa brings to the table a wide network of industry connections, a background in strategic audience engagement, and cross-genre experience.
Megan Alms has accepted the Social Media Manager position for Mountain Brook Ink. She has experience in many areas of the publishing industry, including writing book proposals for a literary firm and publishing her own writing, and is a graduate of Taylor University’s Professional Writing program. Megan will be focusing on bringing attention to MBI’s brand and developing social outreach, including a new YouTube and Pinterest strategy.
After nearly five years, Nikki Wright is stepping down as publicist, but she will still be an active member of the company. Nikki will be taking a more behind-the-scenes role as webmaster and a prominent member of the acquisitions team. Mountain Brook Ink is looking forward to an exciting new year of change and growth in 2020.
