I found Andy to be dedicated, creative and persistent in his efforts to secure press on “Gay In America” (Welcome Books/Random House). To this day, nearly two years later, he continues to seek press opportunities for the book.
We hope for this to be the beginning of a long term relationship with Andy. When we purchased MGA in February we did so with some grand ideas and exciting plans, one of which was to get MGA the exposure it deserved. Andy has taken our vision and put it to action, and we are very grateful. Thank you for all you have done to help us advance Miss Gay America!
It was a pleasure working with you on this [Horse Meat Disco] campaign, and I’m really impressed with what you were able to secure. Especially with the local outlets around the tour, you brought a whole lot to the table, and I think the release really benefitted because of your outreach. I’ll absolutely keep you in mind for upcoming releases, and am really grateful that you were willing to work this one.
Andy coordinated a very successful book tour to six hospitals across the U.S. He tenaciously pitched, sought press opportunities and followed-up from six months prior to the book’s release to eight months post-release, ultimately securing a combined publicity reach of nearly 103 million (circulation + impressions).
As a first-time author (“Closets, Combat & Coming Out,” Blue Beacon Books of RCE, 2014) working via an independent LGBT publisher, Andy got me coverage and reviews of my book that I could’ve never gotten on my own, including my very first cover! I’m looking to work with a larger publisher for my next project and I know that the amount of major press that I was able to land with Popular Publicity for my first book will legitimize me and help me move to the next level.
