As we head towards the end of 2023 the team at The Book Publicist are as busy as ever sharing the work of the very best non-fiction authors and the great minds and ideas of thought leaders.
November has been a brilliant month as we secured coverage in the top business and consumer publications including working on a very seasonal article in Forbes on How To Thaw The “Frozen Middle” Of Management. We welcomed back one of our favourite author experts, Dr Audrey Tang, as she published her new book The Leader’s Guide to Wellbeing (FT Publishing) and the media were quick to snap up opportunities to hear from her. Highlights of the campaign so far include The Daily Telegraph, HR Grapevine, The HR Director as well as an extract in the brilliant LinkedIn Book Club.
Psychologist Thijs Launspach author of Crazy Busy (Capstone) had a bumper month of filling the media pages this November with articles sharing his expertise on the secrets to stress relief for Stress Awareness Week. From Stylist to, LinkedIn Book Club to Harvard Business Review and The Sun and on the BBC. We've kept Thijs busy (but avoiding burnout)!
Two of our other longstanding terrific expert thought leaders have also been kept busy as we organised media coverage opportunities in the UK press and beyond. Talking on the fascinating topic of empathy and why it is so important, Mimi Nicklin was featured in the Harvard Business Review, Stylist, Fabulous Magazine, iNews and the Belfast Telegraph to name a few. D&I expert Yetunde Hofmann has been talking to Fast Company, Decision Magazine, The Press Association, Training Journal on how to amplify minority voices in the workplace and the top mistakes HR leaders make when they're trying to implement their DE&I strategies. Brilliant work!
Career experts David Oxley & Helmut Schuster have had a fantastic month talking to the media about the topics in their new book A Career Carol (Austin Macauley). The media have loved their interviews and comments and it’s been great to pitch them to our media contacts as they have so many ideas. Great to see them in Fast Company, People Management, Forbes, Minute Hack, Stylist, Indian Management – to name a few!
Coaching STAR experts Dominic and Laura Ashley-Timms, The Answer is a Question (TSO) have had lots of media opportunities in Management Today, Headspring, The People Space, HR Grapevine, Strategic HR Review, MMB Magazine and HR Future which has been really exciting.

Our lifestyle book publicity campaigns have been great fun and it’s been exciting to work with period’s guru Gemma Barry on the launch of her book Period’s Aren’t Meant to Bloody Hurt (Trigger Publishing) and secure coverage for her in Stylist, Glamour, HuffPost and many more. We’ve also been working on a beautiful nature book called All My Wild Mothers (Two Roads) by Victoria Bennet - the media have loved Vik’s story with highlights including, Good Housekeeping, Yours, HuffPost, Belfast Telegraph, inews...such a privilege to share with the media.
