How To Promote Your Book - pocket guide to book PR.

How To Promote Your Book / Book PR and talks

Book PR aimed at the independent writer

Entertainment PR expert Diane Hinds recognised that so many writers who followed the less traditional routes lacked media coverage, reviews and improved sales.


How To Promote Your Book guides writers through the process of devising their personalised campaigns, with comprehensive information regarding research, targeting the audience, creating key message, as well as writing a press release and learning about its distribution.  Writers will learn how to achieve these elements in an affordable way, delivering to the public sound public relations through a well thought out campaign.


Diane has also delivered this talk to libraries, literary festivals and Writer's Groups across California.  She is accepting expressions of interest for book promotion and talks for 2019 and beyond.

PR Talks

In addition Diane has delivered over 100 talks throughout the UK at libraries, literary festivals and in California and Southern Nevada.

How To Promote Your Book talks

Jonathon Stokes, Chair, The Writer's Society, Warwick University

"Diane's talk was informative and engaging - it was an absolute pleasure to have her come to the University. It is plain to see how passionate and genuine she is and coupled with her years of expertise, the event that we hosted for her went down fantastically. Thank you Diane!

The London Library

“Dear Diane. Your event went out on our e-newsletter and sold out in a nanosecond! I was wondering if there was any chance you might be willing/able to do a second run of it as I’m sure we could easily fill another session? If so, perhaps you would be kind enough to suggest some dates?

Sandra Yeaman, President, Sandiego Writers/Editor Guild

“Your willingness to share your message with us--your mission--your generosity sets a high bar for future presenters. I'll be following you on Twitter and will chime in with enthusiasm where helpful.

Nicky Grigg, Lincoln Central Library

"Well thank you for taking the time to come and talk to people. You really inspired the attendees to go out there and promote their books, blogs and web pages. It was fantastic to watch, and I also got a lot out of it and gleaned some great ideas on how to promote our events for the future. Some of the older people booked with our computer buddies, asking for help with using computers and technology which was also encouraging to see.”

Sarah Smith, The Library @ Willesden Green

“ .. thank you too very much, Diane, for generously delivering cost-free two high quality events for our Autumn programme. I am so pleased w/ the response and take up by the local community. We would certainly like to have you back again for our Spring programme, and so I will be in touch late Oct / early Nov.  It will be a pleasure to have you back."

Rebecca Robertson, Festival of Chichester

"Following on from the success of your lunchtime talk in September, I would be thrilled if you would consider hosting a similar talk at Chichester Library as part of the Festival of Chichester   …
