PTA has been booking radio tours for the prolific Dean Koontz for at least his past eight titles. For his most recent books, Breathless (Bantam) and the third installment in the Frankenstein series (Bantam), PTA secured over 90 radio interviews. That's four days of radio, 20+ interviews per day. Over the years Dean has reached his audience through top local stations in New York (WCBS-AM), Atlanta (WSB-AM), and Detroit (WJR-AM) among many other and national networks and shows including "Touch of Gray", Sirius, and USA Radio Network. Our goal with Dean is to provide not only the best stations and markets but also the best interview quality so we target smaller stations with a host who is a huge fan as well. Below is a smattering of the stations that we booked for Dean's most recent titles.
