Press Shop gets your book the attention it deserves.

 *Press Shop was named one of the Observer's 2017 top 50 PR firms*

We create and implement effective publicity campaigns for books in many genres, including narrative non-fiction, literary fiction, memoirs, history/policy, popular science, lifestyle, entertainment, parenting, Judaism, and more. Whether we're working with a publishing house to handle an entire campaign or are hired by the author or an allied organization, we work closely with everyone involved to develop a plan that targets and expands a book's audience through high-profile media placements, speaking engagements, social media, awards, and more.

"Hiring Press Shop was the best decision I made for promoting my book, All Who Go Do Not Return. Leah Paulos helped me get a high volume of print media coverage, as well as radio and TV interviews, public appearances, and so much more. I could not have possibly done it without her. Smart, energetic, creative, she is also a consummate professional and worked hand-in-hand with my agent, publishing house, and all others involved. Leah is truly a dream publicist."

"I can't recommend Leah highly enough."
–Erin Kottke, former Publicity Director of Graywolf Press
