Publicious Book Marketing/Publicity


Every author believes that their newly published book is special and unique, and therefore deserves to be read. However, many authors are unsure exactly how to get their book to market.  

A few authors manage to strike it lucky and some media interest is created organically, perhaps through the efforts of the publisher, or the author is already famous. However, the reality is that publishers only tend to invest time and money into marketing the books of authors who are already best-sellers. This means that most first-time authors are left to fend for themselves, and many have no idea where to begin!

This is where experienced Book Publicist, Kerry McDuling, can assist. She offers services to suit most budgets and requirements, each completely individualised to your book and the topic, as well as your ideal audience!

Author Launch Pad by Kerry McDuling


A great place to start with your book promotion is with Kerry's new book Author Launch Pad.

Publishing your own book and becoming an author is only part of the journey. If you want your book to be read, and possibly even become a bestseller, you need to promote it. Learn the book publicity tips from the professionals, and do it yourself.  Many book authors have been incredibly successful with generating publicity for their book; proving that you don't need to spend money on a book publicity expert to do the same thing that you can probably do better.

Read Our Testimonials

I am very grateful and honoured to have found Publicious. As a first time author, there was SO MUCH to learn, figure out and understand. I know that without the help and support of the Publicious team, I would not have achieved my dream. I contacted a few places last year regarding publishing, but I connected only with Andy, and that's why I chose to engage his services. It turned out to be an exceptional choice, pat myself on the back for that :-)

Dr Hisham Abdalla,
#1 international Bestselling Author of 4D Leadership

I asked media personality Ray Weeks about 'Publico'. He thought I was talking about 'Publicious' and said he had heard good reports. That's how I came to meet Andy McDermott. The spectacular cover design was a Publicious masterpiece, my sketches had been redrawn to illustration quality and my photographs inserted. Blitz was launched in good time for the February 19th 2012 Bombing of Darwin Day celebrations.
