Carol Fitzgerald is cofounder and president of The Book Report Network (TBRN), a group of eight Internet sites about books and authors that have become the gathering places for a large and devoted community of booklovers since 1996. With programming for adults at Bookreporter.com, reading groups at ReadingGroupGuides.com, Christian readers at FaithfulReader.com, teens at Teenreads.com, children at Kidsreads.com, and graphic novels for readers of all ages at GraphicNovelReporter.com, TBRN is recognized as an online leader of informed, contemporary book news, reviews, and author interviews. Monthly, more than 1,600,000 unique visitors come to the Network.
The company’s Authors on the Web division provides web development and Internet marketing for authors and publishers. To date, the company has built websites for more than 190 authors and publishers and implemented Internet marketing programs for more than 200 titles. One of Carol’s true joys is working with authors and watching them build an audience of readers.
Prior to founding TBRN, Carol spent 17 years at Conde Nast Publications, where she developed broad-based marketing, promotion, and publicity programs. She has a B.A. in communications from Fordham University.
