I’ve worked with Tess for several years now - first during her time with Newman Communications and more recently with her own firm Tess Woods PR. Tess is an outstanding business book publicist. She is knowledgeable about the media landscape; understands and secures the kind of media coverage that is likely to drive sales of a book; and most importantly has excellent relationships with journalists. She is highly responsive and flexible and I would recommend her to any business author or publishing house looking for freelance PR options.
I’ve worked with Tess for close to 8 years, first at Newman Communications, and then at Tess Woods PR. Tess has always been such a pleasure to work with. She is friendly, knowledgeable about the media industry and the book world, but most of all she gets results! I highly recommend Tess Woods as a rock star PR professional!
I’ve worked with Tess over the last 10 years to promote our books for the Career Press line. Tess strives to get the best publicity she can for each of our books and is great with our authors having both an excitement and tireless effort for each new project as well as a realistic approach to what she can achieve.”
We’ve worked with Tess for years, both at Newman and Tess Woods PR. Thorough and friendly, Tess’ great strength is simple but all too rare: she’s an outstanding communicator. She gets it done, and keeps the whole team in the loop. An absolute pleasure to work with.
Tess is an excellent choice for PR support and strategic communications. She did a wonderful job promoting my book, DARE, and me personally. She is a great writer and she is well respected in the world of books. I was covered by many of the top publications including the Wall Street Journal and Forbes; Tess is the one who helped make it happen. She was always accessible and a tremendous supporter for me.
Tess is an extremely hard working, diligent manager and practitioner. But most importantly she cares about the work she does and the people she does it for. She has a vast amount of experience and a terrific network of media contacts that trust her, and by connection, her clients to provide valuable, entertaining insights.
When I launched Too Big to Ignore, I was intent on landing high-profile media placements. Thanks to Tess, I appeared on both CNBC and Bloomberg Radio. Speaking gigs and book sales resulted. I will be working with Tess on my new book.
Tess is an incredibly talented, resourceful, dependable and delightful professional. I’ve had the privilege of working with many successful people in my career and I would rank Tess among the very best. I enthusiastically recommend her without qualification or reservation.
Tess has provided hands-on publicity work for me and has been there to support my needs for every step of the process. She is extremely task-oriented, organized and efficient. In addition, her sense of humor and personality have made it a pleasure to be in contact essentially on a daily basis. She has a large knowledge base about the world of publicity and the inner workings of the media that have allowed my book to receive national/international coverage in television, radio, print and online. I am truly grateful for her work and that she has provided valuable publicity opportunities for my book- I would recommend her publicity services to anyone I know.
