Lorna Garano Book Publicity | lorna@lornagarano.com | 510.759.6655

In today's publishing world publicity is essential for your message to be heard and for your book to reach its full sales potential. As a seasoned publicist I can guide you through the competitive world of media, help you develop and execute an effective social media campaign, and provide the customized treatment that can make your book a success.

I have been a publicist for fifteen years and have placed authors in major media from The New York Times to Salon to Today. I have worked with both major and independent publishing houses and wide variety of non-fiction authors. In addition to developing major media campaigns, I also offer social media content development, consulting, ghost blogging, and additional services.

I launched Lorna Garano Book Publicity because I wanted the opportunity to work more closely with each author I represent. Whether you're an experienced or first-time author I can craft the media campaign that gets you in front of the public. That's important not just for sales, but because you deserve to be heard.


I get the media's attention. The media receives hundreds of press releases a week. I have a proven track record of crafting press materials that get noticed.

I work at the speed of media. Media trends are fleeting. Hesitate or find out about them too late and your opportunity to capitalize on them evaporates. I stay up on what's hot and happening, so that when a story that you can address becomes news you're the first expert source the media hear about.

Contacts, contacts, contacts. I have long-established relationships with media representatives, who turn to me when they need an expert source or exciting news angle.

Because publicity sells books. As a savvy and experienced publicist I'll put together the campaign that gets your book off the shelves.

Personal attention to you and your book. I give each author and book I represent the one-to-one attention and customized campaign that can mean the difference between getting media attention and getting lost in the crowd.
