Synopsis: Written by one of the country's leading publicists, this is an authoritative, in-depth guide to the unique form of publicity needed to successfully launch a book. Step by step, readers are coached through the stages of a book's publicity lifecycle. The nuts and bolts of book promotion are covered for fiction, nonfiction, hardcover trade, mass market, and trade paperbacks. A thorough "publicity toolbox" of sample press kits.

Allworth Press, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing, publishes a broad range of books on the visual and performing arts, with emphasis on the business of art. Our titles cover subjects such as graphic design, theater, branding, fine art, photography, interior design, writing, acting, film, how to start careers, business and legal forms, business practices, and more. While we don't aspire to publish a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are deeply committed to quality books that help creative professionals succeed and thrive. We often publish in areas overlooked by other publishers and welcome the author whose expertise can help our audience of readers.

Review: Publicizing a book, whether it's your own or someone else's, can be a daunting task. With books piled precariously high in editors' and producers' offices, how do you possibly make yours stand out? Relax. "There's no such thing as an author or book that isn't publicizable," says Jodee Blanco, who has been promoting books for nearly 20 years. "You have to be willing to tailor the campaign to fit the situation." Blanco's approach is to read the book, interview the author, then explore all possible angles. Some books are best publicized from the national level down; others fare better with grassroots campaigns. In The Complete Guide to Book Publicity Blanco explains the ins and outs of writing press kits, conducting media research, making pitches, tailoring and running publicity campaigns, and organizing book tours. She divulges the secrets to interview success, which include the author's knowing as much about the interview as possible ahead of time (it also helps, she says, not to wear plaid and not to hawk the book too blatantly). Most important, though, Blanco knows how to get a media contact to read her mail, and even to return her phone calls. Sometimes, she says, she'll "messenger [a] note with a flower or piece of chocolate. A touch of human kindness works wonders." --Jane Steinberg
