Throughout Hay Festival (25th May to 4th June 2017) The Book Publicist team are inviting authors and publishers to pick their brains on how to get the right publicity for their non-fiction books.
Based in the heart of the “town of books,” The Book Publicist are one of the UK’s leading non-fiction book PR agencies. They work with some major non-fiction publishers (including FT Publishing, Pearson, Kogan Page, Crown House and Wiley) as well as direct with authors, so are specialists in securing powerful publicity for business, self-development, education, careers and parenting books.
As one of the festival sponsors, The Book Publicist are offering visitors to Hay-on-Wye free sessions with the agency founder, and Byte the Book member, Ella Davidson. Authors are invited to meet for a drink and talk through Ella’s thoughts, ideas and tips on how to secure media coverage and put a book in front of the right audience. She’ll give free advice on media-friendly hooks for their book, good journalists to approach and other tips on how to make a book stand out from the crowd.
The meetings can take place in one of Hay’s many great pubs, or alternatively, at The Book Publicist offices in the heart of Hay where they can also offer a beer, wine and even a seat, guaranteed – which can be something of a rarity during the busy festival!
If you’re interested and would like to book a session, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will schedule a suitable meeting slot. The more information you can give about your book and background the better, so Ella can prepare and make sure you leave armed with practical, take-away advice.
