"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

Co-author of Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

"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

Co-author of Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

"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

Author of A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton

"Elizabeth and Suzanne's combined years of experience building some of the most highly regarded publicity departments in the industry showed them to be two of the best in the business. Now working together, they have proven through the scope and quality of the campaigns they have produced, as well as the strength of their media relationships, just how powerful their partnership is."

—Katie Wainwright

Former VP, Executive Director of Publicity, Crown Publishing Group

"I've worked with Elizabeth and Suzanne in one capacity or another for fifteen years, and can say without reservation that they are among the very best in the business. So when we launched The Penguin Press, and they opened their own shop, I was one of the first to come calling. Elizabeth and Suzanne are both extraordinarily broad generalists – equally fluent in the ‘serious' and the 'popular', fiction and nonfiction – and exceptional in areas of politics, policy, and government. I can't imagine a project for which I would not recommend (or hire) them."

—Tracy Locke

Associate Publisher, The Penguin Press

"I'm grateful to you. Wherever I go, everybody throws compliments your way. I'm deeply appreciative (and yes, savoring the moment)."

—Jeffrey Sachs

Author of Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet (upon learning he'd hit The New York Times Bestsellers list)

"I love working with Elizabeth Shreve and Suzanne Williams. They bring great passion and creativity to every book they publicize, and are experts at putting together media line-ups that sell."

—Nicole Dewey

Executive Director of Publicity, Little Brown and Company

"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."

—Janice Goldklang

Executive Director of Editorial, Globe Pequot Press and former Publishing Director, Pantheon Books

"Shreve Williams consistently provides outstanding attention to the entire spectrum of book promotion: working with the author, creating the pitch, making the contacts and following through. Even as the competition has become fierce for high-profile media and public appearances, Shreve Williams comes up with quality opportunities for our authors. Most importantly, they take the time to understand the book and the author, and both our sales and publicity goals, and then apply their knowledge of the marketplace to deliver solid results."

—Brian Weese

Director of Sales & Marketing, Island Press

"Shreve Williams provided excellent service to me for the publicizing of my novel. They are smart, experienced, reliable, and well connected."

Alan Lightman

Author of Ghost and Einstein's Dreams

"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 and Company

"Elizabeth's experience in publishing, her knowledge of media contacts (both print and non-print), as well as her professionalism and enthusiasm, made working with her a great pleasure."

—Nancy Pearl

Author of Book Lust, More Book Lust, Book Crush and Book Lust To Go

"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

Author of The Architecture of Happiness and How Proust Can Change Your Life

"[Shreve Williams'] efforts were very instrumental in establishing First Second in the book world, the graphic novel world, and in the world of popular culture."

—Lauren L. Wohl

Associate Publisher, First Second Books and Roaring Brook Press
