Book publicity may be a pretty niche service in this day and age, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be beneficial. A book publicist differs from a general marketer in that they focus specifically on gaining press and other media attention for your book — news and magazine reviews, podcast and television interviews, blog tours, and more.
A book publicist’s mission is two-fold: to get your “story” out there from a human interest angle and then, once people are hooked, to make your book seem irresistible to them. They’ll coach you on how to talk about your book and yourself as an author, what to highlight about your writing journey, and which details of your plot to reveal (hint: not too many). Many publicists also work mainly or even exclusively with books of a certain genre, meaning they’ll likely have connections with outlets that already cater to your target audience — which can be a huge boon when you’re looking for new readers.
