Testimonials

“I worked with Kathy Daneman on my book The Fish That Ate The Whale. I have worked with dozens of publicists over the last twenty or so years, and I have had no experience that compares. She devised a brilliant strategy for the book, was dogged in getting the word out, getting the book noticed and driving sales. She was there for me at any hour of the day or night, and, on one very important occasion, the details of which I won’t go into, saved me from myself, from great humiliation, jet-lag and pain. (Thank you, Kathy). She sold a bunch of books, was creative about it, never missed a detail, and we had a blast in the process.” —Rich Cohen, author of Tough Jews and Monsters

“I was so lucky to have Kathy Daneman work with me on my third novel.  Whenever I called her, she picked up the phone herself.  Whenever I emailed her, she answered promptly.  Whenever I asked if she’d do something for me, it was done.  Although she was working at the time for Farrar, Straus and Giroux and must have had other clients, she made me feel as if I was her only writer—or at least her favorite one.  She was efficient, wonderfully good-natured, and impressively effective. I’m so glad she’s going out on her own, so I can have another opportunity to work with her.” —Michelle Huneven, author of Blame (finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award) and Off Course


“In the last twenty years, Ive worked with more than fifty publicists all across the globe and Kathy Daneman is the best publicist Ive ever collaborated with. She’s smart, she’s fast and most importantly: she reads well both books and people and knows when it is time to insist and when to let go.” —Etgar Keret, author of Suddenly, a Knock at the Door


“Kathy Daneman is bold, passionate, inventive, and one of the kindest, funniest women I know. With her keen literary sense and her unstoppable drive, she is the ideal publicist. A powerhouse and a flat-out joy, I can't recommend her enough.” C.E. Morgan, author of All the Living


“Kathy Daneman is a real PR wizard; she’s focused, detail oriented, thinks outside the box and is easy to

work with. If I were you, I’d hire her in a New York second.” —John Waters, director and author of Role Models and Carsick

“Kathy Daneman took a book that was a hard sell, by an author no one had ever heard of, and turned it into a genuine event. I was astonished by her inventiveness, her dedication, and—most importantly—her effectiveness at generating buzz. None of that industry-standard insipid cheerleading that leads to nothing concrete: Kathy has strong opinions and brilliant ideas, and they work wonders. Lord knows what might have happened without her. I shudder to think!” —John Wray, author of Lowboy


“Kathy Daneman is a fantastically talented publicist. She knows how to work the national media, and some of the bookings she got for us were real game changers.” —Adrian Zackheim, President and Publisher, Portfolio, Sentinel, and Current, Penguin Random House
