Book PR and Marketing Services for Discerning Authors and Deserving Works of Fiction and Non-Fiction

We’re a small team of former national newspaper journalists who specialise in promoting quality English-language books, ebooks and audiobooks in the British and international print, digital and broadcast media.

Our clients include represented and non-represented authors of fiction and non-fiction, in addition to small presses, leading publishing houses, and literary agents in the UK and internationally. Since 2009, our award-winning author marketing team of ex-journalists have generated press coverage for books through organic editorial, digital and print advertising and advertorial content every working day of the year in the UK national and regional media, on TV and radio, in consumer and lifestyle magazines, and in trade and business publications.

In most cases, we can obtain widespread book publicity in as little as 14 days. And unlike other, less reputable book PR agencies, the results of our work are almost always covered by a peace-of-mind guarantee. What’s more, you can view the results of our book PR campaigns on our latest publicity page.

We’re the only book PR agency that is run and staffed by author marketing experts with professional journalist backgrounds in the national press and broadcast media.

We have a proven track record for running successful fictionnon-fictionauthor promotion and publisher PR and book publicity campaigns in the national media and on TV and radio since 2009.

And we generate more book publicity per campaign than any other UK book publicist, according to journalists and publishing houses.

Our author marketing experts believe the proof is in the pudding and publish the results of our book publicity campaigns and author marketing services almost every day of the year.

Given our journalistic pedigree, it’s no surprise that Palamedes is the go-to book publicity agency UK and author marketing company for some of Britain’s largest publishing houses and the established market leader in the field of book marketing services.

Palamedes PR is the only UK book publicist willing and able to guarantee its work in the national media and on radio (like our book marketing campaign for the celebrity chef and cookery book author Gurpareet Bains [Bloomsbury/Absolute Press], pictured left on BBC Radio 2 with Chris Evans).

We’re not fluffy, won’t dine out on your dollar, and won’t attempt to wow you with patronising buzzwords and industry jargon.

We deliver what we promise – often within as little as 14 days – or your money back.

Do I need a book publicist?
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 and literary marketing agency comes in.

What publicity will I receive?
Every book is different, which is why we’ve developed a range of book PR and marketing services to give you the choice about what types of publicity you would like us to obtain. Our book PR services include national press coverage – the ‘holy grail’ of book publicity that other literary PR agencies rarely achieve and never guarantee.

How quickly will I obtain media coverage?
Our PR for books campaigns typically secure your media coverage within just 14 days.

Do you provide ongoing book PR support?
Absolutely. If you need ongoing book publicity – perhaps to raise a publisher’s profile or to publicise a range of books – simply let us know on the contact form.

Can you offer me free advice?
We offer free advice from the outset. Tell us a few details on the contact form and we’ll call you back to discuss your options with absolutely no obligation. It’s all part of the ongoing Palamedes PR service.
