Book Publicity & Author Marketing from an Award-Winning PR Agency

Palamedes is a full-service London Book PR and Consumer PR communications agency that is not (and does not do) a great number of things. We’re not a large agency, for instance, and only have the resources to represent a few clients at any one time; we don’t charge our clients by the hour or push for retained contracts when such relationships, commercial as they may be, are not in a client’s best interests; we don’t believe that fluffy terms like “output” – PR spiel for, “We’ll impress you with activity, though probably not results” – have any value in modern communications beyond an underhand sales gimmick; we don’t write sycophantic press releases (or, indeed, press releases of any kind); we don’t have tens of thousands of PR ‘contacts’ in a “little black book” (or use any of the off-the-shelf journalist databases in which those cliched ‘contacts’ are normally scraped); we don’t distribute content using pretend wire services; and we never attempt to wow prospective clients with the possibility of mass media coverage when such an outcome is unlikely.

Instead, we like to concentrate on the few things that Palamedes is: it is honest about what can be achieved, even at the expense of losing probable business to less transparent companies; it is run and staffed exclusively by former national news, features and broadcast journalists with practical experience on The Sun, The Sunday Times, The Sunday People, SWNS, Splash News, The National Enquirer, and the BBC who know what makes a good story and how to write one; it drafts editorial copy for the media that is publication-ready, meaning that its content is typically published verbatim; it distributes to the national and international newsdesks through Britain’s largest independent press agency with which it has worked for nearly 15 years; it is widely considered to be the market-leader in UK book publicity on account of the results it delivers day-in, day-out in the print, online, and broadcast media; and it is one of the few agencies anywhere in the world that is willing and able to guarantee almost all aspects of its work.

That’s quite enough for us.
