Book Publicist / Book Publicity - Prime TV, Radio, Print and Web 

Imagine what a noted celebrity publicist could do for you and your book.

There are many PR release wires and all kinds of other "media services" out there. The truth is, if any of that really worked - every movie star, supermodel, sports star, record company, and talent agency would be using them. These savvy insiders know that is just not how the business works. The prime media is part of show biz, and it is all about having a book publicist with the right connections.

Every successful author has a top book publicist behind them. Global statistics on print and E-book publishing now show more than a million titles are being released each year. That means over 2,000 other books came out the same day yours did. A well established book publicist and publicity firm provide the competitive edge you need in today's book marketing arena.

When it comes to book promotion, a strategy of just relying on the in-house book publicist to send out press releases and sample copies won't get you very far. One national television producer told us her show now receives over 3,000 submissions a day. Only a handful of select authors will get prime media. What is their secret? What do they all have in common? The answer is – they hire a top level independent book publicist.

Having a SoCal based book publicist provides another powerful advantage. Because all types of media need access to our Hollywood stars, we have negotiating points. For example, we will often package a celebrity interview with a feature on a book. This is the type of thing a California based celebrity publicist and publicity firm can do. It gives our book publicity clients an additional edge.

" In book publicity, a book publicist with the right contacts is everything."

-- PR Week Magazine --

The most accomplished book publicists are well known by the national media. Here is a excerpt from the reply when we asked a new author how she had heard about R. J. Garis – " I have heard of your agency through several different sources, Wesley Buford (former executive producer, Montel Williams Show), Claire Weinraub (ABC 20/20), and LeBaron Taylor (Sony, SVP and personal friend)."

Clients often come to our agency by personal recommendation from talent, sports or literary agents, publishers, other book publicists, producers, journalists and celebrities. Client referrals have been received through: Oprah Winfrey, Robert DeNiro, Jennifer Lopez, Dan Aykroyd, Jason Priestly, Dawn Wells, Emilio Estevez, Christopher Atkins, Maury Povich, Montel Williams, Daniel Wilcox (Ravens), TV lawyer Star Jones, Jenny McCarthy, LaDainian Tomlinson (Chargers) and many others.

"I just cannot say enough nice things about my book publicist, R. J. Garis. He is professional, innovative and extremely caring with his clients. he sees my potential as an actress, author, host, speaker, and all-around entertainer. He sees the big picture, takes chances, and stays current. I feel very fortunate to have found him as my personal publicist. I highly recommend his publicity firm."

Here is an interesting article in the Daily Beast about Beyonce and Jay Z, where National Publicist, R. J. Garis is quoted.

"R. J. Garis initially represented me as book publicist for 6 months. He got me on about 200 radio interviews and about half a dozen national TV shows. Plus, he was thorough, responsible (communicated with me almost every day for months), professional / no-nonsense (with me and with the media) and very available. As far as I was concerned, it was worth every penny, since the media we got resulted in my own publisher finally standing up and taking notice of the book. That resulted in a great paperback book deal the next year, during which they sent me on two tours."

-- Robert Hopcke, Best-selling Author --

"Would you hire a doctor who never cured a patient, or a lawyer who never won a case? Then why would you go to a book publicist who has no famous clients? Isn't that what they are supposed to be selling? The best indicator of a good book publicist is their track record. If they don't have any famous clients, how good can they be? How good can their contacts be?"

-- From SpeakerNet News Tips --

"Your book publicist website -- rather than promising 'secrets' -- showed well-known clients you've served. Other firms bragged about what they could do. But if they are so cutting edge and competent, how come I've never heard of anyone they've supposedly helped?"
