Founder & President
Fauzia Burke is the President of FSB Associates, and has worked in book marketing and publicity for all of her professional life. I started in the marketing departments of John Wiley & Sons and Henry Holt. In 1995, Fauzia founded FSB Associates, one of the first firms to specialize in Internet publicity and marketing for publishers and authors. Since its inception, FSB Associates has executed more than two thousand successful book publicity campaigns.
“It seems almost like a dream that so much time has passed and so many amazing authors have trusted us with their book and reputation. On our site is a full list of our projects by subject.”
For the past four years, Fauzia has been blogging at Huffington Post which has led to consulting and speaking. It was not something she had ever considered, but it turns out she love it. Here’s more information about her speaking and consulting experience. You can also check out slide decks of many of her presentations.
Her company’s VP & COO is John Burke, her husband and business partner. John joined FSB in 1996, and together they have grown their family and their business. They live and work in Basking Ridge, NJ, and Carlsbad, CA with their two beautiful daughters.
Burke takes authors by their trembling hands and shows them this journey of a thousand miles can be accomplished step by step. And why is the journey worth it? Fauzia writes,
“Once you build your brand, no one can take it away from you. View your digital brand strategy as a continuation of your book. It’s a conversation about your book that builds your community one relationship at a time.”
