Once upon a time…

Two friends were running their own businesses when they came up with the idea to pool their vast knowledge and resources together. They took their love of books and their love of helping authors and combined it into what is now Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Buoni Amici couldn’t describe us better, it means good friends in Italian.

Since that time we have grown considerably and added services and staff. We love what we do.

Meet Our Team

Debra Presley

Debra Presley

Owner

Debra Presley is a USA Today Bestselling author and started her blog The Book Enthusiast in 2012 soon after she was helping authors by arranging blog tours and contacting bloggers on their behalf.

During this time Book Enthusiast Promotions (BEP) was created. Since opening BEP Debra has worked with thousands of authors including New York Times and USA Today Bestselling authors Lisa Renee Jones, Brenda Novak, Alessandra Torre, Penelope Ward, Avery Aster, Kelsie Leverich plus many, many others.

Five years ago she released her debut novel, Finding Us (A Nucci Securities Novel) and in January of 2016 she made the USA Today Bestsellers list in the anthology For the First Time. Since then Debra has continued to help fellow authors pursue their dreams while working on her own.

Debra is a native New Yorker, who made her escape to the suburbs. She often returns to her hometown to visit her favorite deli for a bagel with butter, because there’s no better bagel than a New York bagel.
