I have worked extensively with Michael & Brenna regarding publicity for my recent book. I’ve found them to be thoughtful, inventive and a spark at the just the right time when I felt a publicity need but didn’t know what words to use. They have those words and so much more! Michael & Brenna have a wonderful network cultured over many years that is at their disposal. As writers themselves, they personally know the desire to get something published and how to navigate to actual publication. Brenna & Michael deserve my highest recommendation.

I had the pleasure of working with Michael Tager, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I needed extra help with a client’s book campaign and he came to the rescue. Michael’s dedication, expertise, and passion for the literary world are truly exceptional. From the very beginning, he understood my client’s vision and tailored a strategic plan to maximize the exposure of her book. His extensive network of media contacts and innovative ideas played a pivotal role in helping her to secure valuable media coverage –now and in the future. Michael’s professionalism, responsiveness, and unwavering support made the entire process smooth and enjoyable. My client was thrilled, and I highly recommend Michael Tager to any author in need of a top-notch publicist.

Michael is a wonderful publicist, a delightful human being to work with, and a professional. I am lucky to have worked with him. Both he and Brenna understand what needs to be done to raise awareness of your work and they have a keen eye for understanding the literary business.

Michael Tager coordinated a brief but comprehensive PR tour. He obtained reviews for the book, helped set up a small tour, and took the pressure off of setting up my release party! He connected to, and negotiated a contract with, the venue (which included payment), as well as lining up other readers. All I had to do was show up! The whole experience was an absolute dream.

Michael was very thorough throughout our work together. He helped craft and tailor each of my query letters accordingly, and put in the leg work to help me find the appropriate agents for submission. I would recommend his work to anyone looking for insight and an extra eye on their query letters.
