Kathy Daneman has been a publicist for more than two decades. So… what exactly does a publicist do? Evan and Sarah recently spoke to the former scholastic journalist from Shawnee Mission West High School to get the scoop.
“What I do is work with authors to get their books covered,” she explained. “To get book reviews, to get interviews, to place original essays, to get them on tv, to get radio interviews, to go on tour. And I help them come up with ideas for original pieces.”
Daneman even helps authors with research and helps them come up with interesting topics related to their books. Hear it all in our latest episode.
