Sullivan + Partners works directly with publishers to become a vital partner in a book’s publication.
Our comprehensive publicity, social media marketing and advertising strategy builds anticipation and generates pre-orders. Our team will assess each author’s social media presence to determine a custom branded solution for that author. We then develop a timeline for content, as well as a media schedule, and design original creative for the author that can be posted and shared. All campaigns are monitored by our staff in real time, enabling us to analyze feedback, adjust messaging, and maximize opportunities continuously throughout the life of a campaign. Please contact us for a detailed overview of our services and rates.
Extremely professional and on target! Sullivan + Partners have done four campaigns for me so far, and I hope to continue working with them for many more. Each campaign has been unique and tailored specifically to the book we are promoting. They have a knack for selecting the best language and the most enticing parts of the story, and bringing it to awareness in the most tantalizing way possible! Highly recommended!

Gregg Sullivan is a master of the craft. He is that rare combination of brilliant, responsive to your needs, forward-thinking, truly creative and always dedicated. He’s such a joy!
Judith Regan Judith Regan, CEO of Regan Arts
Gregg Sullivan is responsible, in large part, for the success of my memoir, Running with Scissors. He was able to get the book into the right hands, at just the right time. When my memoir hit stores, there was a flood of publicity. There was an initial surge in sales and then as word of mouth spread, the book just exploded. I am convinced that without Gregg Sullivan’s intelligent and audacious publicity plan, my book never would have reached its audience and become the 3-million copy seller that it is today.
