New York, New York (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
It is time to share your expertise with the world.
The book publishing company, Fish Hook Books, Ltd., has announced a publicity partnership with the Public Relations firm, Macias PR LLC. Under the agreement, authors signed by Fish Hook Books will have an opportunity to get publicity for their books from the New York publicist, Mark Macias – founder and owner of Macias PR.
Macias is a former journalist who understands the media inside and out. As an Executive Producer with WNBC, he vetted and approved story ideas from publicists, reporters, producers and viewers. As a Senior Producer with WCBS and Investigative Producer with King World Productions, Macias honed his ability to identify a story’s narrative. This intuitive understanding of the media has helped Macias PR get their clients publicity in some of the most influential news publications.
Macias also has experience getting publicity for books. He is the author of the business book, Beat the Press: Your Guide to Managing the Media, (http://www.BeatthePressBook.com) which teaches business owners and entrepreneurs how to get their product or service on the news. Macias got publicity for his own book in the New York Times, New York Post, am New York, Fox Business News, KTVK, KPHO, the Toronto Sun, St. Petersburg Times and others. Macias PR has also produced promotional videos for the book publisher, Hachette Book Group.
Fish Hook Books is a hybrid publishing house that combines self-publishing with traditional publishing. The service appeals to authors who want to write a book and share their knowledge with the world. Fish Hook Books helps authors take their original manuscript and turn it into a book or e-book without the need for agents that can take a substantial portion of a book’s profit.
Fish Hook Books helps with every facet in the publishing process: editing, galley proof, book cover creation and book production within three months of a manuscript’s submission. The books will be available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and independent book stores. Fish Hook Books reserves the right to reject manuscripts that do not meet company standards.
Many –now- famous authors used their self-published book to help them secure lucrative contracts after their self-published books became a literary sensation. Chicken Soup for the Soul; What Color is Your Parachute; The Celestine Prophecy; The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – are just a few books that started as a self-published book.
The publicity partnership between Fish Hook Books and Macias PR will enable authors to get the exposure for their books from a professional publicist. Under the agreement, all signed authors will get a personal consultation on their PR campaign after signing with Fish Hook Books.
