I was very impressed by how vested my publicists were in the success of my first book. They believed in my project from the beginning. Smith Publicity took pride in answering every question and pitching me to an incredible media list. I will forever be grateful to Smith Publicity for the amount of press and exposure Eating Well to Win received.
