Changing the world, one book at a time...


“We use a brilliant publicist based in New York on the Upper West Side.  She has worked for Serpent’s Tail for many years but she’s recently taken on Profile for us with terrific results.  She’s outstanding in the blog and Internet world and we’re getting good print results – which are showing in our sales – as well.  She’s efficient, impressive and organized.”
Andrew Franklin, Publisher, Profile Books, Serpent’s Tail

“If you are looking for a publicist I implore you not to choose Meryl Zegarek. On the other hand if you are looking for an advocate an impassioned reader who loves and understands books and knows how to write about them and present them to the public she is the person you need to engage.”
Francis Levy, author EROTOMANIA: A Love Story

“Meryl Zegarek is a Public Relations expert who has mastered the art of dealing with both new and old media. Her personal network is prodigious and her approach both imaginative and thorough. She will touch all the bases on behalf of her clients.”
Warren Adler, author of War of the Roses

“Meryl Zegarek is a true doyenne of the publishing world. As a small and relatively new imprint, we needed a seasoned publicist who would understand our unique needs and distinct market; Meryl and her staff are hardworking, creative professionals and they are a pleasure to work with.”
Amy Gottlieb, Editorial Director, Aviv Press

“Meryl Zegarek and her team are a joy to work with. They were one of the first to jump into the world of specialist bloggers and website reviewers, and they are equally as efficient with traditional media. In addition, as a London based publisher we keenly appreciate her New York presence and style.”
Francois von Hurter, Publisher, Bitter Lemon Press

We were excited to engage the team at Meryl Zegarek Public Relations as the first PR agency to promote our client’s annual event at New York City’s Town Hall.  It was an easy decision, and the right one.  In addition to sharing a common vision by sympathizing with our cause and representing the degree of professional commitment we expect from our partners, the team was also excellent at media relations.  Because of their persistent and newsworthy communications, our event was a huge success, reaching capacity with the majority of guests being first time participants.

"My publisher chose and hired Meryl to promote my book, Rover, Get Off Her Leg! She was wonderful! With all of her hard work she was also by my side through Book Expo America which can be daunting. She never slowed down, remained cheerful and professional throughout the experience. It was wonderful to have such a quality professional on my side. Mid-list authors don't often have that experience. I'd love to work with her again! I highly recommend Meryl Zegarek.”
Darlene Arden, author Rover, Get Off Her Leg
