Evatopia is a literary management and multi-media company that specializes in content for women and teens. Established in 2013, Evatopia Press publishes original and unique titles for women and teen girls. They strive and are are dedicated to publishing a variety of commercial, must-read books.
Their book titles span contemporary and historical romance, paranormal romance, chick-lit, humor, and coming-of-age fiction in the young adult, new adult, and women’s genres.
Evatopia recognized that readers have a plethora of books to choose from. Some authors are getting inventive by promoting their books with trailers in the same manner as films are promoted, there is fierce competition among those as well.
"I wanted to offer authors a book trailer that stood out from the crowd," says Margery Walshaw, principal of Evatopia, a multi-media company that has divisions supporting literary management, publishing, and digital media marketing.
Utilizing film industry contacts, Evatopia paired with experienced film editor Michael Legge to create live-action book trailers as well as up and coming musicians Kimberly Dawn and composer Janine Delarte who lent their music to the endeavor.
The first promotes author Lizzy Ford and her book, "Dark Summer," the debut book in a planned series of four others that are set in the Rocky Mountains at a school for Witchlings. Evatopia's second trailer out the gate was on behalf of author Mia Fox to promote her book, "Released," the first of a trilogy that gives a new twist on the familiar genie in a bottle story.
Both books fall under the category of YA paranormal romance, a genre that Evatopia is focusing on with its new imprint, Evatopia Press, along with chick-lit, romance, and literature for women and teens. "Our concept behind this imprint is to form a cooperative whereby every artist, whether it is an author or a musician who supports those authors' marketing endeavors, actively promotes each other."
