“I worked with Rich Rennicks on my second and third novels. It was a great experience. He put together regional bookstore tours for me, and was great at getting the word out on social media. Every detail of the tours were perfectly executed, and when I was out on the road, booksellers told me how much they’d enjoyed dealing with him. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.”

Emily St. John Mandel, author of four novels, most recently the National Book Award-nominated Station Eleven (Knopf) 

“When my publisher hired Rich to handle Southern bookings, I gave him a wish list of publications and bookstores, all of which he delivered–and more. He also coached me in a way no one else had, and stayed in close contact during the entire trip. For a first-time author at a small, unknown press, this was vital.” 

Alexis Coe, author of Alice + Freda Forever: A Murder in Memphis (Zest Books)

“As a debut author, it was overwhelming to think about navigating the waters of a first book. But I was so lucky to have a shepherd like Rich Rennicks, who not only seemed to know every bookseller and media personality in the country, but knew all their quirks and special requirements, too. How lucky was I to work with him for five years? I can hardly say, but I’ve been damn glad for all his whip smart skills and help. Launching a literary career is nigh impossible, unless you’re in great hands like these.”

Peter Geye, author of three novels, most recently Wintering (Knopf)

“Working with Rich Rennicks is a treat. His many years of experience in book and author publicity have been greatly beneficial to Orison Books in securing book reviews and media attention for author events. Rich is knowledgeable, efficient, and thorough. I highly recommend working with him as a publicist.”

—Luke Hankins, Editor, Orison Books

“Rich was a tireless advocate for my book, got it reviewed in places I never imagined would take a look at it, and publicized good news quickly and creatively. I can’t say enough about his passion and reliability.”

J. Scott Brownlee, author of Requiem for Used Ignition Cap (Orison Books)
