You have spent months, maybe years, alone, honing your craft, writing your book, and now it’s time to put your “baby” out into the world. It can be lonely, scary and frustrating. When you join the JKS Communications family, you aren’t alone anymore. We’re your advocate and help you navigate this crazy world of book publishing and book promotion.
We really get to know you and embrace your goals as our own. With more than 15 years of publicity experience, JKS can help you make educated choices and develop realistic expectations for what is possible for you and your book.
Whether an author is a The New York Times bestseller, a celebrity, or writing a first novel when we meet, we will join you on your journey to the next level.
We work with clients who share a commitment to integrity.
It is in our nature to be fiscally responsible. We treat your budget as we would our own to keep a tight rein on expenses.
Our business model takes into account the lifestyle and comfort level of authors to promote books in a way that works best for them so that they will enjoy the experience, be more relaxed and spend more time on making their book a success. Building platforms and promoting books is time consuming. At JKS, we take the lion’s share of that work so authors have the freedom to write and reclaim their time.
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.Clay Stafford
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.Jenny Milchman
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.The Porch Writers Collective
I was amazed at how well-organized and attentive Julie Schoerke and her staff at JKS Communications were. They were on top of everything, down to the slightest detail. They were always helpful and somehow you got the feeling that you were the only author they were working with, which of course wasn't the case. Not only would I have no hesitation about working with them again--and I will--but I've recommended them to all my author friends.Charles Salzberg
My publisher recommended several awesome publicity firms to help me market my books and after many interviews, JKS quickly rose to the top of my list. The team Julie has assembled emulates her amazing work ethic, her ‘never say never’ attitude, and her ability to open doors for authors in creative, professional, and unconventional ways.Sandra Brannan
Julie Schoerke is a wonderful book publicist. She is smart, savvy, aware of trends, has good connections–and she is friendly and kind, and takes time to add a personal touch to her dealings, something that is rare today. Julie cares about the books and authors she represents. Everyone I’ve worked with in Julie’s company has also been smart, friendly, and aware of what works. I trust Julie and highly recommend her.Cheryl Rainfield
Julie Schoerke’s willingness to promote Silent Sorority and to raise awareness and encourage dialogue on a complex and misunderstood topic is a testament to her character and to her professionalism. Her unflagging support and ideas have been invaluable. She’s a true gem.Pamela Mahoney Tsigdinos
