Curious what Academic PS does? Well, wonder no more:
Academic PR Campaigns
I work with academic publishers to craft the right PR plan for their textbooks and reference resources. Ministry resource publications, magazines for Christian leaders, academic journals, and even some radio hosts receive word about new resources according to their primary uses. An Academic PR campaign often includes galley mailings, multiple media pitches, media pieces, book mailings, and follow up with book review editors.
Ministry PR Campaigns
Books for church leaders keep ideas for ministry fresh and encourage excellent biblical scholarship, and thus are a great fit for our work as well. In general, these projects include a longer pitch time for the galley mailing, contact with authors and creation of numerous PR pieces, and extensive follow-up with book recipients. Publishers can choose to include trade, academic, print, online, and broadcast media according to the title’s applicability to each.
My unofficial tagline for this service is “making really smart people not sound stupid.” It has been my delight to take in manuscripts with varied levels of publication readiness and move them along toward publication. In many cases, I reformat notes and check references, but I also take care to make overly passive, academic writing or writing that was more suited to the ear into engaging prose.
We are a good fit for writing catalog, ad, and back cover copy for works in biblical studies, ministry resources, Christian formation, theology, ethics, and others. Our academic and publishing background makes it possible for us to understand where a particular study fits within various disciplines and craft copy that will attract the target audience.
