To whom it may concern:
Gail Leondar-Wright served as a publicist for my autobiography, A Desperate Passion. My publisher, W.W. Norton, originally hired Gail to arrange radio, television, and newspaper interviews in key cities on my media tour. I was so impressed with her work that I hired Gail myself to arrange additional radio interviews, via telephone, all across the country.
Gail lined up 50 radio, television and print interviews in New York, Boston, Seattle, and other U.S. cities. I was delighted with the quantity and quality of these interviews. As a result of Gail’s efforts, I appeared on television programs, on nationally syndicated and local NPR programs, and on other high quality shows.
In the Boston area, for example, Gail arranged for me to participate in a televised panel discussion on the local PBS station, have my photo and an article about my book appear in The Boston Globe, and record interviews on a number of radio programs. As a result, A Desperate Passion rose to Boston’s best-seller list and stayed there for the two weeks following my visit.
Working with Gail is a pleasure. She communicates well and listens and responds to concerns and requests. She delivers what she promises and does so with enthusiasm. If you are thinking of hiring a publicist to help you promote your book, I urge you to consider Gail Leondar-Wright.
