ThomasUmstattd-webSteve Laube, president of Enclave Publishing, has hired Thomas Umstattd as its sales and marketing director. Known as Marcher Lord Press under previous ownership, Enclave is now owned by literary agent Steve Laube and publishes science fiction and fantasy for the Christian market.

“Thomas will bring another level of excitement and expertise into our publishing efforts,” Laube said. “I have long been a fan of his unique abilities. I could not be more pleased that he has joined us.”

Umstattd founded Author Media in 2008, which became one of the premier web design and technology firms for authors. He is the designer behind MyBookTable, the most popular bookstore plug-in for Wordpress, and he co-hosts the Novel Marketing podcast with best-selling author James L Rubart.

“I have been helping authors with marketing for a long time,” Umstattd said. “This is a great opportunity to innovate new methods of book promotion. I’m particularly thrilled to be here at Enclave Publishing because I’ve been a fan of Christian speculative fiction for years.”
