Freelance Publicists Contact Sheet 2013

This year’s edition of Publishing Trends’ annually updated contact sheet of freelance book publicists includes 56 firms and individuals specializing in a wide range of genres and approaches.

    For the record, we are indeed “reachable” but aren’t publicists, so shouldn’t have been on the sheet in the first place. Sonnet Media is a web design, development and consulting firm, with no publicity capabilities.

    Sorry for any confusion, Bud! We will amend the copy. “Reachable” was used more as a catch-all, as some of the companies mentioned do not exist anymore and others were not available to update information.

    At one point I was on your list but seem to have dropped off. How do I get back on for next time? I’ve been doing freelance book publicity for about 10 years.

    You should also include Kaye Publicity, headed up by Dana Kaye. We’ve used her in campaigns several times and she’s fantastic.

    Ah, and I just noticed that Lauren Cerand is not on your list. She’s fabulous!

    Hi, I would like to get my employer, Kaye Publicity on this list. How would I go about doing that?

    Thanks for updating my listing! Appreciate it! Not sure if there is enough room to modify in the article part, but I wanted to clarify that AuthorsOnTheWeb is still around — just focusing on website design/development projects instead of offering marketing/publicity services, which was my AOTW area when I was a staffer there.

    All best,
    Wiley Saichek

    Thank you for your comment, Wiley! We have amended the copy to reflect this.

    Hi folks,

    A friend of mine suggested I contact you about getting added to your referral list. Great list BTW! 🙂 I’ve been freelancing since May of 2011 but until August I’ve been working exclusively for a publisher client. I’ve gone public and I’m actively signing new clients now so I’d love to be added to your contact sheet. I specialize in Women’s Romantic Fiction and offer both marketing and public relations services. A rare mix. 🙂

    Thanks for your consideration,
    Danielle Barclay
