Business and finance book publicity is our specialty! We’ve worked with publishers and authors on hundreds of publicity campaigns for books covering most subject areas.

We’re passionate about publishing and have many successful campaign examples to show you. If you are in need of a book publicist to secure targeted, national media coverage please get in touch.



Hi! I’m Scott Eathorne and I’m the director of Quikmark Media, a public relations consultancy specialising in book publicity for thought leaders and entrepreneurs. After previously working in-house at a major publisher, I went solo in late 2009 and have since worked with hundreds of amazing authors on books across business, leadership, finance, careers, property and health.


Being independent and known for working with quality authors, media regularly come to me seeking new books to feature and experts to interview – so I’m always on the lookout to work with authors who understand the value that quality media coverage can provide. Many of the authors I work with also have a business or consultancy that ties into their book, and this is a sweet spot as we can use the book as a media engagement tool to educate media about the broader work you do, as well as promoting it as a new release. Despite constant changes in the media landscape, there’s still plenty of opportunities to promote both your book and your business – it’s all about finding the right angles that resonate, and the right contacts. That’s where I come in.


I see the book publicity campaign as the exciting part of the publishing process. You’ve likely spent months (or years) writing your book, perfecting your message and working with a great publisher to release it. Now is the time you get to talk about it. After all, you didn’t write a book for no one to know about it!


Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of amazing publishers like Wiley, Expert Author Academy, Major Street Publishing, Publish Central, Grammar Factory, BookPOD, Dean Publishing, and many others. Many of the authors I work with are onto their second or third books, and I’ve loved seeing the media interest in their work grow with each book.


My book publicity campaign runs for a period of three months, where I take multi-platform approach according to the different media leadtimes to ensure that we obtain tailored coverage that cuts through. Book reviews, author interviews, bylined articles, profile pieces, podcasts, radio and TV & all form part of my strategy to ensure you’re seen in the right places by the right people.


I love what I do. I’m passionate about helping authors get heard, and I still genuinely get a buzz when I land my clients golden media opportunities like a bylined article in the Financial Review, appearing on a major podcast or a magazine cover, and of course seeing that shiny book cover on the TV. These PR opportunities have a major impact on the success of your book as well as help elevate your business to the next level.


The PR industry can be full of BS at times (I’ve heard horror stories), but I’m always transparent and do my best for every client I work with. So, if you’re looking for personalised PR support for your next book, I’d love to have a chat and see how I could help achieve your goals.



Here’s what some of our recent clients are saying about working together. Please contact us if you’d like to see any sample publicity summaries and we'd be happy to share.
