What I’ll need from you:
Unfortunately, it’s not possible for me to arrange national press coverage for every author I work with. Typically, I will target the press release at local news outlets relevant to the author’s location or at publications specific to their genre/subject matter. However, if there is a compelling human-interest story (also called a real-life story) behind your book, or even in your background in general, we can discuss it during the consultation and, should you decide you are interested in taking the story to the nationals, I will separately pitch it to them at no additional charge.
Book marketing examples
Here is a selection of press coverage achieved for my client’s book releases.
Author Alice Readman approached me for PR assistance after the release of her memoir, I Am Alice: Break up, Breakdown, Breakthrough – A True Adventure Story. Following our initial consultation and my review of Alice’s book, along with hearing the moving story behind it, I recognised an opportunity to secure national coverage. Subsequently, I was commissioned to write an article for Mail Online, the world’s most visited English-language newspaper website.
As part of the marketing campaign for Dr Jo Dixon, with whom I published the memoir The Missing Link in Dementia, I successfully secured coverage in the Eastern Daily Press (EDP), a regional newspaper that covers Norfolk, northern parts of Suffolk, and eastern Cambridgeshire. The EDP is both a daily newspaper and has a strong online presence. Jo went on to publish her debut novel, Swimming in Circles, with Wrate’s Publishing, which I also helped to market. Jo’s publishing story can be read here.
