Mariana and I have known each other for many years. My wife’s best friend, she accepted my invitation to move to São Paulo years ago, where we worked together for some time at the Brazilian Coaching Society, before returning to Espirito Santo.
At that time, I met Mariana’s superpowers in dealing with social media, creating campaigns and getting important audience interactions on different fronts. In a short time, we were working together to promote Spirito Sancto, my personal project of divulging historical documents and the History of the Holy Spirit.
The next step was automatic. When I was selected in the Patrimonial Education Call from Funcultura 2016 grant (to develop the site Spirito Sancto) and the Call for Production and Dissemination of Literary Works (to publish Kiss me in Barcelona), Mari was perhaps the first person I contacted to ask for help.
Mariana was responsible for promoting the book’s publicity campaigns on Facebook and Instagram, collaborating, also in other ways, for the success of the book.
