Of the many thousands of new books that hit the British market every year, only a few are seen on TV and in the newspapers and fewer still reach coveted bestseller status. To find out why, we did some research and found a handful of specialist companies that may provide the answer. These firms give new books and their writers a helping hand by pushing them into the media spotlight. They work with celebrities and other big names but offer their services to everyone, including self-publishers. So who are these companies, what do they do, and how can authors hire their services? We’ve collected some information about five of the top book publicity companies out there to help all authors kickstart their own journey to fame and bestseller status.
