"Justin Hargett handled the publicity for my first published novel. At the time, the publishing world was brand-new to me. I didn’t know where to start, what my responsibilities were, what I should expect a publicist to do. Justin listened to all my newbie questions with patience and gave me solid advice that I took to heart, that made a real difference, and that I’ve repeated to new authors more times than I can count. But let’s get down to the most important thing: he got my book all kinds of coverage in major review outlets and helped to create a buzz that had a big impact in sales. He really knows his stuff, and he’s a pleasure to work with."
—Lisa Brackmann, author of Rock Paper Tiger and Hour of the Rat
"Justin Hargett has all of the essential skills of a great publicist. He's tremendously creative when it comes to crafting the message and finding the news hooks, he's absolutely dogged in pursuing the right outlets for every project, and he's equally discerning in knowing when an author's time is better spent elsewhere. And unlike most people in his profession, he holds a highly sophisticated knowledge of many of the subject areas on which he works; this allows him to communicate complex ideas effectively without dumbing them down. All of these things have made him tremendously popular among his peers and given him a wealth of contacts at virtually all of the major media outlets crucial to book publishing."
