Jessie Glenn - Publicist

Portland, United States

Each book is its own ecosystem. I love to dig in, discover connections, and introduce a book to its readers. Specializing in fiction/memoir.

Overview

I started my publicity company in January of 2005 and have established relationships with a wide range of media outlets including radio, television and print media. My staff and I work to create and implement publicity campaigns that are personalized to each book release.

Testimonials:
Katey Schultz, Flashes of War (Military Writers, Book of the Year) "It was both a privilege and an education working with Jessica Glenn, who I hired as the publicist for my debut collection of short stories. Her prompt responses to emails, innovative (and affordable) marketing tips, suggestions for social media use, and go-get-'em determination undoubtedly got my book in front of hundreds of people who otherwise would not have seen or heard of it.

Marcia Johnston, Word Up! How to Write Powerful Sentences and Paragraphs (And Everything You Build from Them) (Winner, IRDA non-fiction award): "Little did I know how lucky I was the day the name Jessica Glenn jumped out at me next to the intriguing term 'book shepherd.' I can't imagine where my book would be today without her expertise and encouragement--certainly not in the top rankings of both its Amazon categories, where it appeared within days of its launch.
