Our list of authors reads like a Who's Who of the political, economic and business worlds: * Economist, Nobel Prize winner and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman * environmental leader Lester Brown * cultural anthropologist/business consultant Grant McCracken * Harvard Business School management guru Bill George Past clients: * Economic investigative journalist Nomi Prins * weapons-of-mass-destruction whistleblower Ambassador Joseph Wilson * business leadership pioneer Warren Bennis * management expert Ken Blanchard * worldwide business consultant the late C.K. Prahalad * clothing catalogue legend John Peterman * leadership consultant Betty Shotton * Michael Bloomberg, mayor and founder of the media conglomerate that bears his name * psychologist Dr. Justin Frank.

Mission: Our mission is to get your message heard in a noisy world. During our 15 years in business we've become known for: * Creativity — In reaching both traditional media and social media, it's the news environment that makes your message rise to the top or disappear. Our job is to work with you to determine how your message best fits into the news environment. * Persistence - If the first pitch doesn’t work, perhaps the 3rd, or the 5 pitch will. Yes, we’ve pitched that deep. One book review editor nicknamed Barbara Monteiro “the hammer,” though she prefers “the velvet hammer.” * Author relations — We believe in Ken Blanchard's saying that all successful businesses make their clients their “raving fans.” * Spotting bestsellers when agents or publishers say no — Found Ambassador Joseph Wilson the right publisher for his bestseller, "The Politics of Truth." Found an agent for a high-school student and her account the emotional journey into womanhood. The young woman received a $100,000 advance for the book. Currently helping two authors find attorneys and e-publishers to get their separate projects on i-Pad. We take care of our authors and help them present themselves in the best light. We not only can find them agents, but also media coaches and speakers' bureaus. We help them make connections with like-minded people in their fields. We even found one author a barber shop and a shoe store in time for a last-minute, on-camera appearance. We believe in ongoing relationships with our clients. Once that bond is established, we continue to refer authors to the media, for speaking engagements and other opportunities - after the initial book campaign is over.

It will change the way you think of women in the film industry!

Our client Paul Krugman's forthcoming book "Arguing With Zombies" is NOT the Nobel laureate's bid for the next "Walking Dead" franchise.
The Zombies of book title refer to conservative economics theories that have been so thoroughly refuted in real life that they should be dead and buried.
But some how they keep returning to haunt the vast majority of Americans whenever those concepts are convenient for the economic elite.
"Arguing with Zombies" will be in bookstores and elsewhere on Jan. 28, 2020.

Opinion | Debt, Doomsayers and Double Standards

Remember when Republicans and many in the media predicted doom due to deficit spending in the midst of the Recession recovery?
Our client Paul Krugman calls out "the serious people" who preached belt-tightening and suffering for the poor and middle class then. Those voices are totally silent now as we run a trillion dollar deficit in a good economy, exactly when deficits should be low or nonexistent.

Selective deficit hysteria has done immense damage.
