Book Publicity Services

Book Publicity Services does not specialize in particular genres of books. We have successfully promoted both fiction and nonfiction books in a variety of genres including children’s, middle grade, young adult, new adult, mystery, erotica, fantasy, action/adventure, crime fiction, thrillers, historical fiction, science fiction, romance, paranormal, political, business, religious, medical, self-help, inspirational, parenting, health/wellness, memoirs, cookbooks, personal finance, and more. Here are some of the books we have promoted: http://bookpublicityservices.com/clients-books/

Book Reviews:

Over the years, we have compiled an extensive database of book reviewers. We will pitch your book to the reviewers that cover your specific genre.

Our goal is to secure as many reviews as possible for your book on Amazon, Goodreads, and other websites.

Media Exposure:

Our goal is to secure as much media attention as possible to create awareness of your book and build your brand. To get media coverage, we will pitch your book to print (newspapers & magazines), broadcast (TV & radio), and online (websites & blogs) media outlets. We will coordinate reviews, feature articles, interviews, giveaways, and other types of placements to promote your book.

We have an extensive database with thousands of contacts, from editors to bloggers, in a broad range of subject areas, including: art, entertainment, business, finance, education, fashion, beauty, food, politics, health, real estate, religion, sexuality, self-help, family, science, sports, technology, travel, and more. From small blogs to the most powerful news outlets like USA Today, Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and CNN, we have strong media relationships at all types of media outlets.

We will pitch you to the media outlets that are the best fit to reach your target audience. You will be notified of all contacts that express interest in your book, and we will coordinate all press placements.

Social Media:

We will promote your book on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ to increase your online presence and get the word out about your book. This will involve regularly updating content, posting press placements, and interacting with reviewers, media contacts, and potential readers.

Speaking Engagements:

If you live in the US, we will contact your local bookstores, libraries, book fairs, book clubs for potential speaking engagements or book signings. We will pitch you to the organizations that are the best fit to reach your target audience. For example, if you have a Christian book, we will reach out to your local churches. Or if you have a Children’s or Young Adult book, we can reach out to your local schools.

Press Release Writing & Distribution:

We will write and distribute search engine optimized press releases to promote your book. For maximum exposure, we will distribute the press release to search engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing, etc.), all major online news sites nationwide (Yahoo! News, ABC News, Star Tribune, Newsday, CNN, etc), and post it on top press release distribution sites (PRNewswire.com, SBWire, 24-7PressRelease, OnlinePRNews, etc).

The goal of distributing a press release is to have as many sites as possible post it. Typically, our press releases get posted on 100+ news sites. This helps to build your online presence and get the word out about your book online. Press releases also help increase traffic to your website and improve your ranking in search engines.

If there is a service we offer that you don’t want or need, that’s completely fine. We will focus more of our time and energy on the other services included with your PR campaign. For example, if you don’t need social media promotion or don’t want to do speaking engagements, then we will spend more of our time pitching media outlets and reaching out to book reviewers.

A standard public relations campaign with Book Publicity Services lasts a minimum of 6 months. This allows enough time to pitch all appropriate media and follow up. You can continue your PR campaign for as long as you’d like, and you can cancel your PR campaign at any time.

At Book Publicity Services we will get the media attention you need to increase awareness and sell more books. Media coverage includes radio interviews, articles in newspapers and magazines, television interviews, guest blog posts, book reviews and interviews on websites, and other press placements. We have an extensive database with thousands of contacts, from editors to bloggers, at all types of media outlets in a broad range of subject areas, including: art, entertainment, business, finance, education, fashion, beauty, food, politics, health, real estate, religion, sexuality, self-help, family, science, sports, technology, travel, and more. We have relationships with the most powerful news outlets like USA Today, Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and CNN, as well as bloggers and local newspapers nationwide. We will pitch your book to the websites, blogs, magazines, newspapers, television and radio shows that are the best fit to reach your target audience, such as: http://bookpublicityservices.com/media-reach/

We have represented hundreds of authors. Here are some of the books we have promoted: http://bookpublicityservices.com/clients-books/

We have coordinated exposure for authors in a variety of media outlets including TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, and websites. Here are some of the press placements that we secured for the books that we have represented: http://bookpublicityservices.com/author-press/

We will let you know who has requested a copy of your book to review, what format (ebook or paperback) they would like to review, and where to send the book (email address or mailing address). It is your responsibility to send out the review copies in a timely manner.

When you mail your book to reviewers, you can either mail it by itself, or include any (or all) of the following:
– a thank you card
– your business card
– your signature on the book
– your press release from Book PR Services
– the cover letter provided by your publicist at Book Publicity Services

The amount of press placements and/or book reviews each of our clients gets varies. There are many factors that affect media coverage results – newsworthiness, the size of the target market, the length of the PR campaign, the amount of time and effort the client is willing to put into answering media questions or doing interviews, the amount of media contacts pitched, and more.

With book reviews, our goal is to get your book in the hands of as many reviewers as possible. It can take any where from 1-6 months for a reviewer to read your book and publish their review. However, there is no guarantee that every reviewer will publish a review. Most reviewers will not publish a review if they did not enjoy the book, they prefer to only publish positive reviews.

In publicity, there are no media coverage or book sales guarantees. However, we can guarantee that a public relations campaign with Book Publicity Services will help get the word out about your book, increase your Amazon
reviews, and build up your online presence significantly.

Yes, we do. If you complete this form, we will publish an article on our blog to promote your book, for free.

If you have not released your book yet, we recommend starting your PR campaign at least 2-4 weeks before the book is published, but the more lead time we have, the better. If your book is already published, we recommend getting your PR campaign started as soon as possible.

Yes, we highly recommend hiring a professional editor. Here are a few reasons why.

We have heard great things about Janet Angelo, an Editor at IndieGo Publishing. Janet is a perfectionist of an editor with more than ten years of experience, and her rates are reasonable. Check out her portfolio of edited books on Reedsy, just a small sampling of the hundreds of books she has edited for independent authors.

We recommend publishing your book in both print and ebook. We have heard great things from our clients about both Xlibris and Perfect Bound Marketing + Press.

  • Bennett Jacobstein – Author of The Joy of Ballpark Food

    "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."
  • Maya Thiagarajan – Author of 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!"
  • Shannon O’Leary – Author of The Blood on my Hands

    "Working with Kelsey 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."
  • Christopher Mannino – Author of The Scythe Wielder’s Secret Series

    "I was very glad to work with Book Publicity Services, headed by Kelsey. 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."
  • Eric Matheny – Author of The Victim

    "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."
  • Corine Dehghanpisheh – Children’s Book Author and Illustrator

    "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."
  • Brett Garcia Rose – Author of Noise

    "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."
  • Iain Reading – Author of Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series

    "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!"
  • Lola Smirnova – Author of Twisted

    "Kelsey 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!"
  • Natalie Scott – Author of Rules for Riders

    "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."
  • Simi K. Rao – Author of An Incurable Insanity

    "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."
  • Liz Stauffer – Author of Thursday Morning Breakfast & Murder Club

    "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!!!"
  • Teko Bernard – Author of The Hoop Kid From Elmdale Park

    "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.'"
  • Kate Kelly – Author of You Lucky Dog!

    "I found Book Publicity Services, run by Kelsey, to be very well run. Kelsey is extremely organized in her approach and was great at following up with interested parties, reporting back to me regularly, and also supporting my website via Twitter."
  • Jennifer Forest – Author of Work Women Want

    "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."
  • Elyse Douglas – Author of The Christmas Town

    "Kelsey is a focused and detailed professional. I enthusiastically recommend Kelsey’s Book Publicity Services to any author interested in launching a new book or growing an audience for an existing one. Dependable and efficient, she also obtains swift and practical results. Kelsey is an exceptional find in the ever-shifting, ever-challenging business of marketing books."
  • Paul Gillebaard – Author of Moon Hoax

    "As a first time author, I was very fortunate to be introduced to Kelsey 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 on your team!"
  • Tori L. Ridgewood – Author of The Talbot Trilogy

    "I am very impressed by Book Publicity Service's ability to generate interest in my work and make connections on my behalf. Kelsey 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!"
  • Robert Radcliffe – Author of 180 Degrees

    "Only refer someone when you are confident to refer them... I AM CONFIDENT REFERRING KELSEY! Kelsey is amazing!"
  • Seraphima Bogomolova – Author of A Tricky Game

    "I am very happy with your service, you have done more in 2 months than I could have done in the whole year if I had promoted my book myself."
  • Annie Oeth – Author of Because I Said So: Life in The Mom Zone

    "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."
  • Bill Edgar – Author of The Minimum Wage Millionaire

    "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."
  • Philip C. Elrod – Author of The Krakow Klub

    "I would recommend you (Book Publicity Services) highly to any indie author."
  • Andrea Amosson – Author of Told from the Hips

    "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."
  • Jennifer Rock & Michael Voss – Authors of B.S., Incorporated

    "We highly recommend working with Kelsey and the team at Book Publicity Services. We were amazed at the number of unique media properties and outlets they found, pitched and placed on our behalf - from traditional and social media, to a wide variety of bloggers, websites, podcasts, events and contests. They are thorough, responsive, persistent and creative. We are thrilled with their work and plan to continue our relationship."
  • Jane Stoller – Author of Organizing for Your Lifestyle

    "As a first time author it is overwhelming to know where and how to start your marketing your book.  Kelsey immediately takes care of everything and has a structured approach to making sure your book is marketed to the correct audience's. Kelsey is also highly professional and utilizes her network and communication talent to truly promote your book.   Her services went beyond my expectations and would recommended her company to anyone looking for PR support."
  • Frank Cavallo – Author of Eye of the Storm & Rites of Azathoth

    "I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kelsey and her team at Book Publicity Services on two books, and I could not be happier with the results. The level of exposure that she’s been able to obtain for my work has been flat out amazing. She’s secured more reviews, blog spots, guest posts and interviews than I could have ever imagined. On top of that, she’s incredible on a one-to-one basis as well. When you’re with BPS, Kelsey makes you feel like you’re her only client—always responsive, always attentive and always working to get the word out for your books. I highly recommend her and her company."
