CLIENTS & COVERAGE

What we've worked on for our clients, present and past.

When you partner with us, you get our passion, our drive, our creativity and our dedication. We guarantee to get all of our authors noticed; not just because it's our job, but because we care about every single book we promote.

Our blend of authentic and strategic book marketing, both in print and online, has kept our clients coming back to us time and time again, and we're always looking for new challenges. Check out some of the brands and authors we've worked with below.

"The kind of publicist every journalist wants in their contacts book."

Black Crow is teaming up with Black Spot Books on their new horror-focus and 2022 projects, starting with Hold My Place (Cassondra Windwalker, 25/01/22), a thrilling and emotional tale of obsession and possession. Further novels, novellas, and anthologies will follow, including Under Her Skin (05/04/2022), Black Spot Books’ inaugural women-in-horror poetry showcase which includes over eighty poems from women (cis and trans) and non-binary femmes in dark verse, as well as a foreword by Linda D. Addison, illustrations by Bram Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Marge Simon, and cover artwork by Lynne Hansen.

Black Crow is consulting on B2B and B2C campaigns for Novellic, the reader-recommendations mobile app based on user taste and social connections. Novellic is a free, fun digital space for readers to discover new books via personalised recommendations and book clubs, encouraging social reading, and giving authors, publishers and bloggers an attractive way to present a virtual book display to their readers. Their easy-to-use app has a strong  consumer focus and excellent UK market integration for cover reveals, metadata distribution and book purchase.
