One of MEDIA CONNECT’s specialty areas is promoting books about parenting.   Over the years, we have promoted many best-selling and first time parenting authors. Distinguished authors include Kevin Leman, Vicki Hoefle, Douglas Haddad, Joanie Geltman, Erica Komisar, Jessica Lahey, Dr. Daniel Siegel, Hal Runkel, Tyler Durman, and many others.

We have developed many important relationships with general and niche media covering parenting books and issues. We leverage those relationships for every parenting book we promote.

Targeted services include:

  • National television interviews
  • Book reviews with print publications and online media outlets.
  • Feature coverage on blogs, podcasts, and social media platforms.
  • Stories placed in major newspapers, magazines, newswires, and parenting publications.
  • Radio tours via phone
  • TV coverage in hometown markets and in major markets around the country.
  • Coverage in community and weekly newspapers across the country.
  • Advisory services on your social media platforms.

We tailor each campaign to the parenting audience most central to your book topic, develop appropriate press materials and then work closely with you in executing the campaign.
