“The company has really been experiencing a period of accelerated growth in the past months,” says CEO and Publicist, Kelsey McBride, “it stands to reason that the company should to grow along with the client base in order to maintain our high standards of excellence. We’re very excited and confident that the addition of a new intern will be highly beneficial to our continued success.”
The aforementioned intern is Devyn Rossi, a student at Fullerton college, with a lifelong love of books and a knowledge of the industry from her time as an employee at Barnes & Noble.  Devyn has worked not only as a bookseller, but as the Lead for both Children’s Books and Digital Sales. “During my time at Barnes & Noble, I have always striven to provide outstanding customer service,” says Rossi, “I’m excited to provide Book Publicity Services’ clients with that same level of care and personability.”
“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.” – Natalie Scott, author of Rules for Riders
“I was very glad to work with Book Publicity Services. 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.” –  Christopher Mannino, author of The Scythe Wielder’s Secret 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!” – Iain Reading, author of the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency series and The Dragon of the Month Club
