Rachel Hutchings

Publicist & Digital Marketing Strategist

“Working with Books Forward on my current novel has been wonderful. Rachel has been a great partner for publicity and marketing. You folks are terrific and there’s no other publicist I’d rather partner with.” – Robert Steven Goldstein, author of Cat’s Whisker, Will’s Surreal Period and more

Rachel helps Books Forward authors cultivate and establish their digital voices. She’s committed to thinking beyond packaged branding, and works hand-in-hand with authors to ensure authenticity in their online presence.

While traveling around the U.S. with her military family, Rachel enjoyed the constant comfort of books (including reading the entire Nancy Drew series!) and writing her own stories.

Graduating from Belmont University with a Publishing major and a Psych minor, Rachel worked on the Belmont Story Review and interned with our friends at American Blackguard. She’s a quick learner and enthusiastic team player, always impressing both our clients and team with her creativity, motivation and keen intuition. Rachel is constantly finding innovative ways to promote our authors and their books.

Fun fact: In her spare time, Rachel is a drummer and a pianist (fitting right in with the Nashville crowd!).
