Media coverage on Lorraine, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Management Today and the BBC | A fabulous October for PR at The Book Publicist

October 31 2023

October is always a busy time for us with lots of new books publishing and fresh expert and thought leader PR campaigns gearing up for autumn with plenty of opportunities to secure high-profile national media coverage for our brilliant clients. It’s buzzy and we love it!

With Breast Cancer Awareness Month and ADHD Awareness Month in the diary this October there have been lots of opportunities for our wonderful authors and experts to share their experience and knowledge. It was an absolute joy to watch the incredible Dr Liz O’Riordan, the breast cancer surgeon who had breast cancer, on TV talking to Lorraine about her stunning memoir Under the Knife (Unbound) and to hear her busting cancer myths on Radio Scotland and in the HuffPost.

ADHD aficionado Leanne Maskell was lighting up the media spotlight once more spreading her passion for educating the world about dealing with neurodiversity. The media have been loving Leanne’s new book ADHD at Work and have invited her to share her expertise with highlights including HuffPost, SheerLuxe and HR publication People Management.

We have really enjoyed working with executive coach Patrice Gordon on promoting her book Reverse Mentoring (Little, Brown). Highlights for Patrice have been being interviewed on BBC Business Live and in Forbes, Fast Company, People Management and in Stylist sharing how organisations can cultivate inclusive leadership and amplify underrepresented voices with this style of change.

There have been some fantastic media opportunities across the board with the Harvard Business Review, CEO Today and Inc. Reviews for Matt Abrahams and Think Faster Talk Smarter (Pan Macmillan) in the Mail on Sunday, Prima and Management Today.

Thijs Launspach author of Crazy Busy (Wiley) featured in the iPaper talking habit stacking and the signs of burnout, Bianca Miller-Cole and Dr Byron Cole were across the media with their book Rich Forever (John Murray) including Metro and Forbes and iNews. It was also great to see the authors of A Career Carol (Austin Macauley), David Oxley and Helmut Schuster sharing their ideas with HR Magazine, Indian Management and the LinkedIn Book Club and Alison Grieve and Jenni Miller author of Leading Edge (Practical Inspiration Publishing) and Lauren Neal author of Valued at Work (Practical Inspiration Publishing) everywhere from Forbes to the LinkedIn Book Club, Edge and CEO World and Stylist and HR Future and HR Magazine.

And of course with the last day of October being Halloween the spookiest day of the year, we secured a feature with Forbes for a number of our expert clients on ‘Horrible Leaders: Do you know a Frankenstein, Ghost or Vampire Manager?’ Well worth a read!

With 2024 on the horizon we are speaking to the media about securing articles and interviews for our clients around the topic of New Year Resolutions for business and wellbeing so if you are a publisher with an amazing new book or an author or expert who would like to be in the media sharing their ideas on topics such as Dry January OR National Mentoring Month? If you have something to say, a business or book to promote then get in touch and see how we can help…
