Who We Are
MindBuck Media Book Publicity is a full service author public relations and book publicity company, able to step in, consult and create interest and progression at any point during the evolution of a book. From manuscript to international book release, Jessica Glenn and her team provide highly personalized author services ensuring the highest level of success possible for authors and their publishing companies. Conservatively, we've helped authors sell half a million books in the last two years alone and had two bestsellers in 2011. We work directly with authors, with publishing companies, or in tandem with both to create the best bang for the publicity buck.

Book Publicist: Jessica Hardesty Norris
