Read what our clients have to say about us:

“I heard all the bad things about publicists, but I was completely satisfied and very enthusiastic about Cathy. She is a pro and takes the time to really know the book inside out. She has a team of people who work with her so she can cover everything. Cathy keeps you up to date as opportunities emerge and gives you a monthly summary of results. I think she must be the best in the business.”

—Mark Pastin, author of Make an Ethical Difference: Tools for Better Action (Berrett-Koehler, 2013).

“Cathy worked diligently and brought great ideas to promote our book From Smart to Wise, and has been able to generate a good amount of buzz in both radio and online publishing media. She is hard working, connects well with people, and comes up with creative ideas to produce results. For thought leaders, Cathy is a great person to work with.”

—Prasad Kaipa, author of From Smart to Wise: Acting and Leading with Wisdom (Jossey-Bass, 2013)

“Cathy Lewis helped me launch my bestselling book, The Hamster Revolution: Manage Your Email Before It Manages You. Her team helped me make over 100 media appearances, including appearing on CNN and Good Morning America. We sold over 125,000 copies in 11 languages. Cathy and her team were a big part of that success.”

—Mike Song, author of the bestseller, The Hamster Revolution

“For the last 10 years, I have had the pleasure to work with a truly great professional in the world of public relations, Cathy Lewis. In a matter of a few short months, she delivered dozens of radio interviews, television in all the major markets, and print in every major newspaper and magazine in America and Canada. When Cathy tells you she has a Rolodex she can reach out to, you’d better believe her. I have recommended Cathy and her team numerous times, and to anyone who asks me, I tell them if you don’t work with Cathy, you are crazy.”

—Jim Camp, founder of Camp Negotiation Institute, author of “Power of No”audio CD and the bestseller Start with No

“Cathy Lewis and her team have far exceeded my expectations. I hired Cathy when I was looking for a publicist for my second book, having been through a disappointing gauntlet of publicists for other books and projects. Cathy’s company came up with a well-thought-through game plan, executed it, and helped get my book some great exposure, including landing me a spot on national television: CNN. Cathy is bright, motivated, thorough, clever, easy to work with, honest, consistent, positive, and truly knows how to understand her clients. I always felt like I was a cherished and important client. The publicity world is quite a jungle, hard-to-keep promises are often made, and it’s easy to spend gobs of money without any results. Cathy is a trustworthy and dedicated professional whom I recommend most highly.”

—Marc David, author of The Slow Down Diet

“Cathy Lewis is a fabulous PR expert. She did a terrific job on publicity for my book, from the amazing press kit she created, to reaching out and connecting me to top magazines and newspapers perfect for my genre and TV whenever I wanted. Just take a look at my Media page on my website (www.ImageryForKids.com) and you’ll be amazed at all she accomplished to help get my book out there! Thank you, Cathy, and your fantastic staff.”

—Charlotte Reznick, author of the bestseller, The Power of Your Child’s Imagination

“I’ve hired Cathy as publicist for three of my books and she’s done a great job on each one. Her efforts have resulted in numerous television appearances, including on CNN. Though I do little to promote myself as a speaker, some lucrative speaking jobs have come in when event planners contacted me—an indirect result of Cathy’s efforts.”

—Minda Zetlin, author of The Geek Gap and Telecommuting for Dummies

“I enjoy working with Cathy. She is hardworking, reliable, creative, available, honest, knows people in the media, and gets results. She also has a great team working with her. She also works WITH you and your goals. I would recommend her without reservations.”

—Terri Orbuch PhD, a.k.a The Love Doctor™, author of 5 Simple Steps to Take Your Marriage from Good to Great

“After researching so many PR firms, I was disappointed with what I found. It was a dream come true to find Cathy and her PR firm! She is excellent at creating hooks and pitches that land the media mention perfectly suited for the project. The value I received was worth so much more than I paid. Run, don’t walk, to hire Cathy.”

—Julie Steelman, author of The Effortless YES!

“We work with a lot of book publicists. It’s a very challenging role, because they are at the mercy of both the author (Is she any good on television?) and the media (What is their interest of the moment?). Cathy is at the top of my short list of publicists to consider because she always does an excellent job. The materials she puts together are some of the best I’ve ever seen, and she applies creativity, discipline, and intensity to every assignment. In a field of publicists, many of whom over-promise and under-deliver, I recommend Cathy unreservedly.”

—Glen Yeffeth, BenBella Books

“Cathy Lewis has been a highly reliable and effective publicist on a variety of Square One’s better health books. She is hardworking and knows her topics very well. There is always a high level of commitment and conscientiousness to all campaigns on which she’s worked. All told, an excellent person with an equally excellent PR firm that mirrors and furthers all her own greatest strengths and attributes.”

—Anthony Pomes, director of marketing and publicity, Square One Publishers

“I can always count on Cathy to provide me with appropriate sources for my workplace columns. She understands my needs and fulfills them. And she has often helped me out in a pinch!”

Dawn Anfusonationally syndicated workplace columnist and blogger

“I’ve worked with Cathy for many years, and always found her to deliver what she promises, and more. She’s thorough, responds quickly to questions, and makes it her business to know how she can best help you do your work.”

Anita Bruzzesesyndicated newspaper workplace columnist for Gannett/USA Today

“Cathy and her team are world class! C.S. Lewis was able to get me on national TV on both of my books numerous times, dozens of nationally syndicated radio shows, and in over hundreds of printed and online newspapers and news services. I would highly recommend Cathy’s team for any writer looking to gain national exposure with a team high in quality and integrity.”

—Nicholas Aretakis, author of No More Ramen and Ditching Mr. Wrong

“I hired Cathy to promote Punk Marketing—not an easy task in a sea of business books. She, unlike every other book publicist I’ve worked with, took the task to heart—and did not stop until every stone was unturned. I’m in PR too so I know how difficult it is. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to writers and online types.”

—Richard Laermer, author of Punk Marketing

“The most competent and honest public relations outfit I have dealt with in 40 years in business.”

—David Goldbeck, author of several bestsellers, including Healthy Highwaysand American Whole Foods Cuisine, and president of Ceres Press

“Cathy Lewis is the rare PR person who truly knows how to think like a journalist. Her story pitches are well researched and relevant. As a reporter, I welcome C.S. Lewis & Co. news releases in my inbox because Cathy so often hands me a fully developed, salable story idea, along with a primary source or two, as if on a silver platter. Though it’s her job to gain publicity for her clients and not necessarily to make my job a lot easier, Cathy routinely accomplishes both.”

Dawn Klingensmithnationally syndicated health journalist

“Cathy is the book publicist I always recommend to friends and colleagues who have written books and want to make sure those books get the press attention they deserve. She is smart, thorough, creative, and persistent, and knows how to build and nurture relationships, which is why she succeeds where so many others fail. If I ever write a book, I will beat a path to her door.”

Jane Praegermedia trainer and professor of strategic communications at Columbia University

“Cathy Lewis is, in my opinion, one of the best publicists I’ve met. Her clients’ press kits are a journalist’s dream: They contain angles to pitch to editors, extensive background information, and even a list of questions to ask during interviews. I’ve seldom seen a publicist this thorough, this prepared, and this good.”

Brittany R. Glennnational business journalist

“As a self-published and unknown author, I needed an edge when it came to public relations and exposure for my book. Cathy delivered. Consummate professional. Thoughtful. Creative. Hardworking. Great partner. Would highly recommend her group to anyone who needs publicity for an upcoming or current book.”
