Book PR

Award-Winning Book Publicity with Guaranteed Exposure on TV, Radio and in the UK National Press

Book PR: Guaranteed Book Publicity

Welcome to the UK’s trusted and most accomplished book PR agency – the book marketing agency of choice for discerning British and international authors, publishers and agents since 2009. While other UK literary PR agencies hide behind “no guarantees” policies, our literary PR team of award-winning former national news journalists, editors, book reviewers and authors guarantee the results of every book PR project we undertake. That’s why Palamedes PR is widely considered the UK’s market-leading book PR and book marketing agency and why we’ve been promoting books by British and overseas authors in the national press for almost a decade. Our literary PR team secures publicity for books – new and old – in the print, broadcast and online media every working day of the year.
