Here's what our clients have to say:
Clay Stafford

JKS Communications has been invaluable to our work at American Blackguard, Killer Nashville, and for me personally as an author. I’ve worked with PR firms for over 30 years and the team at JKS is hands-down the best, bar none. I recommend them all the time to other authors and literary organizations.

Any author, no matter how well published, needs an independent publicity team in his or her corner, and the book wizards of JKS Communications are the best. Their passion for books is unparalled, allowing them to tailor unique campaigns that suit each author’s individual needs, strengths, hopes, and dreams.

Bringing JKS on board to help with the publicity for The Porch’s first fundraising event is among the best decisions we’ve made. The media exposure that JKS has generated both for the event and for our organization has led to a sizable increase in our class registrations, email mailing list, and social media following. JKS has helped put The Porch on the map in Nashville.
