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 subscribe to a 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, sport, military, theology, cookbooks, nautical, history, Māori, fantasy, poetry ... You name it, we've worked on it!
QUOTES WE LIKE
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
