Testimonials

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with the wonderful team at PR by the Book for several years. Their publicists are hard-working, communicative, and deliver results. They’re at the top of my list of recommended freelancers.”

— Mindy Fichter, Associate Director of PR at DK Publishing

“In this age in publishing, when there are more books than fish in the sea, book publicity must be creative but precise and multifaceted but focused and strategic. PR by the Book is all those things and more. They understand that you must create awareness in print and online, with both major outlets and niche influencers. They have the relationships to reach the bigwigs, and the smarts to ferret out the significant opinion makers for each project. At Patagonia Books, PR by the Book helped us not only get national attention on four titles simultaneously, they did so while also gaining attention for the Patagonia Books brand overall. They were a hands-on and responsive partner who helped us develop the best PR strategy for each of our books and all our books together. The results were far-reaching and effective. I enthusiastically recommend Marika and her team.”

— Karla Olson, Director of Patagonia Books

“PR by the Book worked closely with our team to maximize outreach to the children’s book community. Our enthusiastic, tireless publicist Stephanie Ridge, helped us to develop a strategy and craft promotional language that would connect with readers and reviewers, resulting in a stupendous amount of press coverage in online and print media across the United States.”

— Michael Buening, Associate Director of Education, Cultural & Education Initiatives, China Institute

“We hired PR by the Book to secure tour media and online coverage for a picture book campaign. Not only did they secure fantastic results (helping to land the book on the New York Times Bestseller List), they were an absolute delight to work with. I look forward to collaborating again on future projects.”

— Molly Brouillette Associate Director, Publicity Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group

“I have worked with PR by the Book for several years on numerous different book projects. I have always found them to be professional and well organized. They follow through and provide great input and insight. They have tutored me in how to establish a social network footprint and in developing presentations and numerous interviews and reviews. They are well connected in the industry and are patient even when a new author like myself needs some gentle prodding to go in the best direction. I would work with them again and plan to without hesitation. You get what you pay for and PR by the Book has been worth every penny.”

— Clark Burbidge, author of The Giants in the Land and StarPassage series

“I’ve never been so impressed with the efforts of a firm—be it PR or social media—in all my life. They are, in a breathless word, amazing. Smart, quick-witted, knowledgeable, indefatigable.”

— Rex Pickett, author of Sideways (which was turned into an award-winning film) and Vertical

“PR by the Book provides excellent value with experienced PR professionals and an efficient online system for status reporting. I appreciated the fact that owner Marika Flatt participated in creative brainstorming for PR pitches. I was a PR practitioner and executive in a former life, so I know the business. PR by the Book is at the top of the list for bang for the buck.”
