Dee Dee DeBartlo - Publicist

New York, NY, United States

I'm a book publicist and marketer whose biggest success was the launch of Freakonomics. I work with nonfiction authors and novelists.

Overview

I've been in book publishing for 23 very interesting years and have had the privilege of working with many incredibly smart, creative, and talented authors. In addition to launching Freakonomics, I have worked with the wonderful Cokie Roberts on 5 bestselling books, developed a true friendship with Elmore Leonard who I was lucky to work with for 15 years, publicized Neil Gaiman's American Gods and watched his career explode, and worked with filmmaker Guillermo del Toro on 2 bestselling books.

Before starting my own company I was a senior director of publicity at HarperCollins for 12 years.

In January 2014 I formed DeBartlo & Co, a boutique full-service book publicity and marketing firm. I continue to work with many dynamic publishers and authors. Recent projects include Thirty Million Words: Building A Child's Brain by pediatric surgeon and social activist Dana Suskind, The Nurture Effect by behavioral scientist Tony Biglan, Last Night at the Blue Angel, a debut novel by Rebecca Rotert, White Man's Problems, a collection of stories by Kevin Morris, The Blue Hour a psychological thriller by Douglas Kennedy, and many more.

While my main focus is publicity, I also help with every aspect of bringing a book to market -- from jacket design to social media and digital marketing. I have a vast network of media contacts and publishing professionals who I collaborate with to create websites, videos, and book jackets.
