Media Connect is a specialist at arranging television and radio interviews, garnering consumer and trade print media placements, gaining gift guide coverage, securing a full range of digital placements, and scheduling author events for art, photography, and entertainment books. We also offer strategic consultation on marketing and public relations, media coaching services, and press kit development. From The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today to Sirius XM Radio, NPR, C-SPAN TV, and Publishers Weekly, Media Connect has booked a lot of A-list media placements on behalf of our authors and publishers.

For fiction or non-fiction titles with an art, photography or entertainment theme, we offer a depth of subject knowledge and experience that will position your book to receive the kind of media attention that will drive sales, share a positive message with millions, and raise the author’s brand profile.

Through the 55 years Media Connect has served as a leading book promoter, we have publicized many books with a theme relating to art, photography, entertainment or culture.

We had a very successful campaign for Art & Place, published by Phaidon Press, which directly impacted sales in a significant way according to the client. Please consult: http://www.media-connect.com/clients/case-studies/place-189.html.

Since then we have worked with Phaidon on Where Chefs Eat and also had a very successful campaign with The Art of Forgery by distinguished art scholar and novelist Noah Charney.

We also worked on Schatz Images: 25 Years, (Glitterati, $500), a limited edition, numbered, two-volume, box set, career retrospective from the photographic legend Howard Schatz. Please consult: http://www.media-connect.com/clients/case-studies/howard-schatz-years-203.html
