"Paula Margulies set up the cross country book tour for my first novel, Inventions, and has been instrumental in arranging speaking engagements and radio interviews for me. She is the consummate professional – knowledgeable, energetic, and friendly. I recommend her to any author who needs help promoting and publicizing a book."
"Within a week of contacting Paula Margulies about my new film, an interview with a local newspaper was scheduled and an article appeared soon after. Good, fast, results-oriented work!"
- RobertaCantow, Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker www.originaldigital.net
"Perhaps because she is a writer herself, Paula understands writers and excels at working with them. She establishes effective marketing strategies based upon the writer's objectives and keeps in touch with her writers during every stage of the promotional process. I'd recommend her to any writer looking for a competent and thorough professional specializing in either local / regional or national publicity campaigns."

"Paula has been absolutely fantastic. Prior to hiring her, I had two other publicists who I thought were pretty good. Paula showed me otherwise. She accomplished more for me in a couple of months -- including booksignings, newspaper feature stories, keynote speaking engagements -- than the others did in a year. She is smart, professional, and extremely savvy about the book world. I highly recommend her."

"I feel so fortunate to have met Paula Margulies. She is not only one of the best publicists in the industry, but is also a generous person with considerable integrity. With a limited budget, and in a matter of a few weeks, she helped me build a polished media kit and made several important media connections. Paula is a true pleasure!

"I've really enjoyed working with Paula Margulies. She set up a successful season of book signings for me, and I'm enjoying working with her on my new sequel. Her integrity and straightforward approach makes it easy to trust her with my reputation, and her willingness to make cold calls AND to follow up has freed me to do what I enjoy and am good at: write."

Working with Paula Margulies on the promotion of my book, Charting the Unknown, has been both personally rewarding and professionally advantageous. With her help I have been featured in a number of media venues including magazines, television and radio. In addition, she was instrumental in setting up several speaking engagements across the country. She is knowledgeable, accessible, and effective. You would be hard pressed to find someone better suited for the job.

"Paula stood out among the publicists I evaluated. First, she cares. She actually asked for a pre-publication copy, and then read my book—even before I had selected her to do my publicity! Second, Paula brings enormous experience and judgment to her work. Since I'm a first-time author, she offered valuable counsel on a range of issues, from how to give a book talk to how I should go about building my personal platform. Third, Paula is a genius at leveraging social media, and her guidance in this department has paid handsomely. Finally, Paula is a pleasure to work with. She is easy to reach, provides frequent status reports, tracks her time spent, and is highly organized. Even more, I love her style and energy. I recommend Paula without reservation.”

"Paula has been an absolute pleasure to work with. We established an immediate rapport. She is thorough and persistent. I’m so lucky to have benefitted from her significant experience in the literary publicity business!"
"Thanks, Paula, for making the dreams of a thirteen-year-old kid come true. It took forty-nine years, and you helped me finally do it. In the short span of five months, you have helped me get many book talk appearances, an NPR interview in Detroit (WDET 101.9 FM), and a 2011 USA Best Book Award, where I am a Finalist in the Multicultural category. I look forward to more shared success in the coming years."

"Paula saved me time and money in marketing my first book, Complications: A Doctor's Love Story. She also believed in me, and in the true story I felt compelled to tell. Now, two more books later, I am deeply grateful for Paula's confidence - at a time when others would scarcely give me the time of day!"

"Paula is the only one of several publicists I interviewed who actually read my book. Her work to get my debut novel, What Are Friends For?, noticed led to a contract with the same publisher for my second novel. Paula is thorough, disciplined, detail-oriented, and persistent. Most important of all, she doesn't prescribe; she listens!"
"What really impressed me about Paula was her accessibility and communicativeness during every step of promoting my novels, Portrait of a Girl Running, Portrait of a Protégé, and Blind Stitches. Her generous advice and assistance, tailored to fit my needs and style, has helped me have a more progressive attitude about promoting my work. I never would have done it on my own. I highly recommend Paula Margulies!"

After months of struggling to get my newly published book exposure, I found Paula and she effortlessly took control, putting my book on the right track. The biggest surprise was Paula actually read my book, discussing it with me with sensitivity and insight, knowing exactly where to direct it. She came up with a customized marketing plan that fit my budget and best suited my book within a very specific genre. I was impressed with Paula’s endless resourcefulness, extensive contacts and depth of promotional knowledge. She is not only highly professional, she is also pleasantly accessible and keeps the lines of communication open. Working with Paula has been a pleasure and one of the best professional decisions I have made.
Paula Margulies is a godsend for an author. As a fellow author with years of experience in the publishing industry and the invaluable contacts that go with it, she knows how to shine the best possible light on a book, and how to get it the exposure it needs. Paula booked me interview after interview for my debut novel Saving Grace, in print, on the radio, and on TV. She helped me identify the right reviewers and contests for my book, and she gracefully taught me to navigate the politics of the bookstore world for the many events she arranged for me. I’m extremely grateful that I found Paula and had the chance to work with her.
