Unrivalled Book PR for Discerning British and Overseas Authors

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.

If you’re a discerning author, publisher or agent looking for outstanding results, ongoing free advice and swift, quality publicity for your book, you’ve come to the right place. Our celebrated book PR campaigns obtain guaranteed book reviews and guaranteed publicity for any English-language title, whether new or old, in the national press and on radio and TV – usually within just 14 days. Our literary PR team orchestrates book PR campaigns for both fiction and non-fiction titles, including ebooks and audiobooks. We are widely known, in particular, for promoting biographies, self-help, business titles and works of history.

Book PR: what we guarantee

Whether it’s TV and radio broadcast interviews (like the one on BBC Radio 2 with author and chef Gurpareet Bains and DJ Chris Evans, right). Or if it’s national newspaper coverage, book reviews or book events (such as the World’s Biggest Book Signing for author Neil Blower, pictured above with the cast of ‘Allo ‘Allo), our market-leading book PR campaigns generate guaranteed publicity for books and for discerning British and overseas authors. You can see the results of our book PR campaigns, here.

Do I need book PR?

Do I need book PR?

Amazon publishes a new book every five minutes. In this increasingly saturated market, getting today’s savvy consumers to notice your book will be hard enough. Encouraging them to buy a copy is something else entirely. That’s where a results-focused book PR agency comes in.

What publicity will I receive?

What publicity will I receive?

Every book is different, which is why we’ve developed a range of literary PR packages to give you the choice about what types of publicity you would like us to obtain. Our book PR packages include national press coverage – the ‘holy grail’ of book publicity that other literary PR agencies can neither achieve nor guarantee.

Our book PR packages offer:
Radio & TV interviews for authors
National publicity for books
Book reviews for authors
– The freedom to pick and choose with our Custom book PR package

How much publicity will I receive?

How much publicity will I receive?

We secure more publicity for books than any other book PR agency. We obtain national press coverage for books as standard and reams of column inches for every book we represent. Compare what we do day-in, day-out with the results of our competitors, here.

How competitive are your fees?

How competitive are your fees?

Of the many literary PR ‘specialists’ out there, none are willing or able to guarantee quality publicity. Do a bit of research and you’ll soon see that for every one successful literary PR campaign they manage to pull off, there are countless more failures.

In the words of John Ruskin, “When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can’t be done.”

In short, no other reputable book marketing agency can match our fees, our PR for books guarantee, or the results of our literary PR campaigns. We provide quite extraordinary results at quite ordinary prices.
