Jessica Kastner Media

Looking to hire a publicist for your forthcoming book? I have ten years in publicizing non-fiction books of all genres, including religious, memoir, history, military history, science, music and performing arts, nature, politics, business & economics and many more.

Whether you’re a publishing house looking to contract with an outside publicity firm, or an author looking for additional PR support, you’ll need an experienced publicist with supreme knowledge of the book marketing process, as well as pre-existing media connections.

The post-pandemic media landscape has changed significantly. It’s not enough to send a few e blasts and review copy mailings, and hoping ‘something sticks.’ In order to accomplish the amount of media coverage it takes to move the sales needle, it takes targeted, thoughtful outreach to specific media niches and reader groups that only an experienced publicist has access to.

My passion has always been books, and promoting an author’s thoughts, ideas, and experiences is a valuable, intimate honor never to be taken lightly. I only accept projects I’ll be able to execute with excellence.

Please submit a request for proposal here. I’ll respond within seven days. Best of luck on your publishing journey!
