  • Bennett Jacobstein“For my book, Kelsey obtained media exposure beyond my wildest dreams. This included tv and radio appearances in major media markets, as well as coverage in newspapers and magazines. Kelsey responds quickly to email and is always available for questions. Rather than providing a business plan, Kelsey gets direct results.”

  • Beyond the Tiger Mom“I am so glad that I hired Book Publicity Services to publicise my book, “Beyond The Tiger Mom: East-West Parenting for the Global Age.” While the book had gotten some good initial reviews, I knew that I had to find a way to get the word out about the book to a wider range of parenting and education publications both in the US and in Asia. Kelsey was absolutely fantastic at helping me do just that. From parenting magazines to mom-bloggers to bigger news outlets and podcasts, she did a great job of successfully pitching my book to many wonderful reviewers. She was able to secure a number of reviews and author interviews for me, and my book got far more coverage than it otherwise would have. Additionally, Kelsey was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to all my emails and requests, and she was extremely efficient and professional. Highly recommended!”

  • the blood on my hands“Working with Kelsey McBride from Book Publicity Services has been a pleasure. She and her team have been in contact with me on a daily basis arranging reviews, interviews, book promotion and developing a social media campaign which has increased my book’s exposure. I would recommend her publicity service highly as she has been dedicated in promoting my work and giving me industry guidance. Kelsey and her team are professional, hard working and know which type of publicity and exposure will get the best results. I will definitely be liaising with her and using her expertise when I publish my next book. Thank you Kelsey and your publicity team.”

    Author Christopher Mannino“I was very glad to work with Book Publicity Services, headed by Kelsey McBride. Kelsey is a very hard worker and helped me find reviewers including many booktube reviewers. What I appreciated most was her communication skills and professionalism. My wife (also an author) and I have worked with other publicists who would be lax at responding to emails, or not take our input, but Kelsey was nothing like this. She worked closely with me to pursue an aggressive publicity campaign that really helped me promote my book. Highly recommend.”

    Corine Dehghanpisheh“I highly recommend Kelsey and her team for your PR needs. Kelsey secured many book reviews, blog opportunities, and promo spots for my book. To my relief, Kelsey and her team also provided consistent social media management which gave me time back in my day to focus on my next book. I will continue to use her services for my next books.”

  • Eric Matheny
    Author of The Victim

    Author Eric Matheny“Kelsey is a workhorse. I never imagined I would have a publicist who puts so much time and dedication into promoting my work. She has secured dozens of promos from high-traffic book blogs and reviewers, several high-profile placements and reviews, and continues to get my work seen almost daily. My publisher has 163 titles in print and in the second month after my release, my title was the number two bestseller out of the entire list. Truly phenomenal results. Kelsey is a PR pro with a keen understanding of the modern book market. Above all, Kelsey gets results. Most publishers, big and small, are ill-equipped to pour all of their marketing resources into one book. It is so easy to get lost in the shuffle with all of the great writers out there. You need a publicist who will make your work a priority. Kelsey is that publicist and she will make your work stand out. I owe every sale of my book to Kelsey’s tireless efforts.”

  • author Iain Reading“In a world full of different publicist options it’s difficult to know where to turn. I found Kelsey’s PR Services to be top-notch and I really appreciated that the information as to what she could do for me and how much it would cost was up-front and available. That allowed me to plan and commit to a long-term relationship with her that has definitely paid off with her procuring some absolutely fantastic reviews and placements and getting my books into the hands of the exact right people who will really appreciate it. Thank you Kelsey!”

  • Brett Garcia Rose
    Author of Noise

    Brett Garcia Rose“Kelsey’s assistance and professionalism have by far been the most valuable assets to my book launch, and to my writing career in general. I would not know if it is only her, because she gives the impression, work, and results of having an entire PR team on my side, and has far exceeded my expectations (and continues to do so). I look forward to working with her on all of my books moving forward, and I give her the highest recommendation for any author, whether traditional, self-published, or hybrid. Her work alone will increase your exposure, which is the lifeblood of emerging authors, astronomically. She really is that good.”

  • Lola Smirnova
    Author of Twisted

    Twisted by Lola Smirnova“Kelsey McBride from Book Publicity Services has helped me, as an aspiring author, with marketing my debut novel Twisted for the past 6 months. She did a great job using her countless connections to give my book as much exposure as possible and I want to thank her for that! She has definitely put me on the next level. And I am certainly going to carry on working with this company for my upcoming books. If you need a professional publicist who delivers what’s promised and more, use Book Publicity Services!”

  • Author Natalie Scott“I found Kelsey and Book Publicity Services on Goodreads. Since she has taken over, it’s been simply amazing! She has gotten us three different interviews with book bloggers in one week. A lot of people claim to be connected, but Kelsey really is. She has constantly reached out to bloggers and reviewers for us. If you’re looking for someone who will go above and beyond, Kelsey and Book Publicity Services is the way to go.”

  • Andrea Amosson“A whole year after my book was translated from Spanish and published in English, I didn’t see any reviews or coverage about it. Knowing the value of my book and the importance to help readers find it, I decided to look for an agency to help me promote it. Among the options I researched, I chose Kelsey and Book Publicity Services because from the first phone call, I realized the professionalism and experience Kelsey offers. We had a successful campaign, my book went from being another unknown title, to get reviews, and I was interviewed by important local media. Kelsey also sent me a list of literary contests I could enter, and my book even made finalist in one of those. I can only recommend Kelsey. Believe me, your book will be in excellent hands.”

  • SimiHeadshot“For any author especially a brand new one like me, Kelsey and her PR services are invaluable. From the media pitch to getting interested bloggers review and post promos of my book Kelsey got it done. She is professional, prompt with her responses, upfront with what to expect and a pleasure to work with. Therefore if you are looking for someone to promote your book, Kelsey is the way to go.”

  • Because I Said So book cover“Book Publicity Services brought “Because I Said So: Life in The Mom Zone,” my first book, a great push just when it was needed. Additional interest has resulted in more sales and notoriety, and the attention to detail and personal contact was a great help to me as a new author. Book Publicity Services gave me excellent service and excellent results.”

  • teko bernard headshot“Kelsey was really great! She is very responsive, insightful, detail-oriented, and thoughtful. If you want effective results and to work with a PR professional she is definitely the ‘go-to.'”

They are thorough, responsive, persistent and creative. We are thrilled with their work and plan to continue our relationship.”

  • Jennifer Forest
    Author of Work Women Want

    Jennifer Forest Headshot“What initially attracted me to Kelsey’s PR services is that she was very specific on what she would do, as well as having experience promoting books and music. She was very clear and upfront about what was involved in each level she offered, which I really appreciated. I was also very happy with the level of responses Kelsey achieved from the media pitching for my book. I am quite convinced this was so much more than I would have been able to achieve as a lone author without her help. I recommend Kelsey very highly and found her services truly invaluable.”

  • Liz Stauffer “You’re a terrific PR person. I’m so glad I found you. Thanks again for all you’re doing for me. Thanks for making this happen… Kelsey’s amazing!!! 5 stars!!!”

  • Paul Gillebaard
    Author of Moon Hoax

    Paul Gillebaard“As a first time author, I was very fortunate to be introduced to Kelsey McBride by an associate. With Kelsey’s great contacts and connections, she has gotten Moon Hoax into newspapers and magazines. For any author, getting reviews is the name of the game. Kelsey has put Moon Hoax into the right hands of quality reviewers who have taken the time to read the book and give an honest review. Not only have these reviews helped to spread the word on the book, they have also helped to increase sales. Kelsey also has set up multiple interviews, both in print and on radio. You cannot go wrong having Kelsey McBride on your team!”

Kelsey McBride is highly professional, efficient, and thoughtful, offering excellent and practical advice as well as organizing promotional spots that I would never have considered on my own. I would never have been able to achieve such results on my own, and the regular updates are terrific both for my record-keeping and for my morale. Thank you, Kelsey!”

  • author Bill Edgar“Kelsey has worked to get my book out in the public eye with reviews and interviews. I believe that the topic I’m covering, basic wealth accumulation for teenagers, will take some time to catch on with the public and Kelsey has done a wonderful job of laying the groundwork for that to happen.”
