EXTENSIVE MEDIA CONTACTS
It takes a long time to build up media contacts, essential for gaining coverage for books across television, radio, newspapers, magazines and online media. Our publicists have each worked in publicity/marketing roles for publishing companies for 15+ years and have established excellent personal connections with media. We also use a comprehensive Media Database which ensures we have access to a wide range of regularly updated media contacts.
GENUINE BOOK LOVERS
It’s no surprise our team has chosen to work in publishing – we’ve all been avid readers as long as we can remember! This means we will promote your book with genuine enthusiasm and a love for what we do.
NEW ZEALAND OWNED
We are proudly locally owned and work with both New Zealand and international authors to maximise their media coverage in New Zealand.
A TEAM APPROACH
Working in a team allows us to share knowledge, ideas, new contacts and industry updates – critical to keeping on top of the ever-changing world of media. We all possess unique strengths and interests, and between us have experience publicising books across all genres - children's, adults, fiction (literary and commercial), non-fiction, memoir, travel, Māori and Pasifika, sport, military, theology, cookbooks, nautical, history, fantasy, poetry ... You name it, we've worked on it!
JUST SO YOU KNOW ...
We work on new books only.
We ask for confirmation that books have been professionally edited and proof read.
Please talk with us at least 2 months before your proposed launch/release date.
