Testimonials

Shreve Williams is best in class. Any writer looking to navigate the part of the process that can be the most challenging (the selling part that comes after the writing part) would be smart to have them on board. They are with their authors every step of the way, with contacts, savvy, and attention to detail that are unmatched.”

Mark Halperin

bestselling co-author of Game Change and Double Down

“From the craziness of the initial launch to the longer market-by-market haul, the professionals at Shreve Williams are just that: consummate pros. They know how the media works; they understand its needs and skillfully navigate its demands; they are sharp, resourceful, energetic, and, best of all, totally devoted to the authors and books that they promote. Working with them was a perfect pleasure.”

John Heilemann

bestselling co-author of Game Change and Double Down

I cannot imagine a better experience with book publicity—a notoriously dicey area of enterprise—than mine with Elizabeth and Suzanne. These are two terrific people who do a terrific job, nothing dicey, nothing troublesome, and they work very, very hard and effectively.”

Carl Bernstein

bestselling author of A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton

“Nicole worked on countless books I represented during her long career at Little, Brown. She is among a handful of genius publicity minds in this business. Her ability to see around corners, act fast and decisively, think strategically, and spread her infectious enthusiasm cannot be beat.”

Amanda Urban

“We’ve brought the Shreve Williams team on to work on some of our highest  profile projects.  I can always count on them to expertly navigate the tricky media landscape and deliver top notch schedules. They are deeply talented, collaborative, reliable, and a joy to work with.”

Nancy Pearl

author of Book Lust, More Book Lust, Book Crush, and Book Lust to Go

“As a longtime publisher and publicity director, I know when a publicity campaign is well run. Shreve Williams runs a great campaign. They are reliable, responsive, and exceptionally well organized. Working with them is not only a pleasure, but completely free from worries.”

Richard Pine

Inkwell Management

“Suzanne brings great literary taste, graciousness, and sensitivity together with toughness and shrewdness in a rare combination. She became a passionate advocate for my book, and her ardent support of it was both gratifying and effective. She is also an absolutely lovely person and was a true pleasure to work with—utterly dedicated, responsive, patient but pushy when she needed to be, and fun to strategize with.”

Priscilla Gilman

author of The Anti-Romantic Child: A Story of Unexpected Joy

There is no one in all of publishing who is smarter, more passionate, more hardworking, or more savvy in creating excitement and momentum behind a book than Nicole Dewey. She is, in my experience, simply without parallel. You may not know yet that you want to work with Nicole, but believe me, you do.”

Adam Haslett

bestselling author of Imagine Me Gone

“In her former life, Elizabeth was Henry Holt’s director of publicity, and in my capacity as publisher I worked with her closely and very happily for seven years. She was unfailingly professional, wonderfully focused and well organized, and very creative about how to publicize and market our books. She also happens to be a delightful person, so any collaboration with Elizabeth is bound to be both fun and superbly productive.”

John Sterling

former President and Publisher, Henry Holt & Company

“Working with Suzanne has always been a joy: She gets you all the media you could plausibly get and makes sure the right people know about your book in good time. Her schedules are perfect and her organizational skills impeccable. An author couldn’t ask for more during those arduous times on the road.”

Alain de Botton

bestselling author of The Architecture of Happiness and How Proust Can Change Your Life

“After I finished working with Nicole Dewey on my book, I had a fantasy that I could enlist her for every other area of my life, too. Her judgment, energy, wisdom, experience, and relationships guided me through and have stayed with me since.”

“Working with Nicole has been one of the great privileges of my professional life. She is absolutely the best there is.”
