“Jump at the chance to work with Val! I was fortunate enough to have her run the publicity for my YA novel and she was amazing. Full of original and effective ideas, well-connected, super social media savvy, and highly responsive, she was any author’s dream publicist. Besides knowing how publicity works, she knows how writers work too, and that makes her a real joy. A consummate professional . . . with heart.”

— Maria E. Andreu, author of The Secret Side of Empty

“I spent an hour on the phone the other day with Ms. Val Howlett, publicity consultant EXTRAORDINAIRE. She read my book, then provided me a detailed, month-by-month action plan as well as other valuable resources, all for an extremely fair fee. She is cheerful, rational, and an utter and complete joy to work with. If you’re interested, I recommend her unreservedly. Valerie, thank you again so much!”

Sally J. Pla, author of The Someday Birds

“Valerie Howlett was instrumental in spreading the news of my debut novel. I did not have a clue as to how to promote the book online. Val’s knowledge of compatible and appropriate sites allowed me to focus on other aspects of the book launch. I had complete confidence in her work and was thrilled with the exposure. I would use Artisan Publicity for future publications in a heartbeat.”

— Meg Wiviott, author of Paper Hearts

“Val Howlett will get you noticed. She has industry experience and an aesthetic that is top notch. If you want a personal strategy and not a canned approach, you’ve come to the right place. From cover concept to marketing strategies, Val made Press Play a very visible and profitable novel.”
