Why Hire Press Shop? 

We Focus on Your Book  
Often, in-house publicists are extremely stretched, juggling many books at once while also being required to attend frequent meetings and to travel. We work by your side throughout the lead-up to publication and beyond, and we focus solely on your book. We've collaborated seamlessly with publicists from all the top 5 publishers, and many indie houses and academic presses, to create a more robust media campaign than otherwise possible.

Experience on the Editorial Side
Our background on the editorial side of the journalist/publicist relationship gives us uncommon expertise in finding news hooks and crafting pitches, as well as guiding a piece through to publication or broadcast. As a magazine editor, Press Shop principal Leah Paulos spent years fielding pitches from publicists; as a freelance writer she wrote story pitches for a wide variety of national outlets. We know how journalists think and what they need.

We Know People
We've worked in the media world for over two decades, and we have the contacts to show for it. We've nurtured relationships with journalists, and we keep abreast of the myriad changes to the industry. We always know which writers and producers to pitch for each project. 

We Get Results!
We’ve placed clients on the TODAY show, The Daily Show, and on the front page of The New York Times, as well as on hundreds of other high-profile radio and TV shows, magazines and newspapers, and online outlets. We do not stop working until we secure the best possible media coverage for you and your book.     

A Personal Touch
We offer the kind of focus, responsiveness, and professionalism that you need as publication day approaches. Leah works closely with every client and is always accessible.

We champion our authors tirelessly.
