"I can't recommend Kim-from-LA highly enough. Quite simply, I adore her. She is enthusiastic, hard-working, innovative, and willing to pull out all the stops to help her clients grow. Most importantly, when I hand my publicity needs over to her, I don't have to think about them again. I can just do what I do best--write books--and let her handle the media, reviews, interviews, and tour events. I feel incredibly grateful that she is part of my fabulous publishing team.”
—Kristin Hannah, New York Times #1 Bestselling author of The Nightingale, The Great Alone, The Four Winds, and The Women

“Kim Dower’s pre-media coaching is indispensable. She effectively refines my message and polishes my technique in a way that bolsters my confidence for the scores of print, radio, and television interviews I do when I’m on tour. I’d hire Kim even if I weren’t going on tour.”
—Robert Crais, bestselling author

"Kim Dower is the hardest working freelance publicist I know. I can't think of anyone better to hire for help on a campaign.”
Dori Weintraub, Vice President, Publicity, St. Martin's Press

"Kim-from-LA delivers! She took our author from podcasts to syndicated radio shows to a spot on Tamron Hall and we couldn't have asked for more of a publicist. We loved working with her as she bridges the gap between professional services and personal attention in a way that is assuring to author and publisher both. Thank you Kim. You're the best.”
--Vicki DeArmon, Publisher, Sibylline Press | An Imprint of All Things Boo

"Let me put it simply:  Kim from LA is a master.  Incredibly resourceful, amazingly well-connected, and most important, one of the most caring and hardest-working people in the entire book industry.  Sure, every publicist knows the best shows and stores.  Kim knows the people behind them.  Make no mistake, that's the difference.  She never, ever, ever gives up -- and that's why she gets books on the bestseller list."
—Brad Meltzer, bestselling author

“Kim is so gifted at what she does! Kim helped me share my book widely with a range of different audiences—to get its promotion on track. Kim taught me how to focus my message during interviews to really connect with people from the heart. I can’t recommend her enough!"
Elizabeth A. Stanley, PhD, associate professor of security studies at Georgetown University
author of Widen the Window: Training Your Brain and Body to Thrive during Stress and Recover from Trauma

"My book “On Call in the Arctic” had already been released by my publisher Pegasus Books, and the publisher was doing some good promotion. But I wanted more. Like everyone, I searched and searched the ‘net for book publicity agents, and everyone I read about offered the moon. I had no idea what to do so I contacted a fellow physician and author and asked who did her publicity. She told me about Kim. Many things impressed me about Kim, but the most reassuring of all was the fact she advised me publicity was going to be tough because my book had already been released. But with reasonable expectations, I went ahead, and boy was it the right thing to do. Kim’s work gave my book the traction it needed to now become a #1 Amazon Bestseller and winner of a Nautilus Book Award for 2019. I feel very strongly much of the foundation work that has gotten my book to where it is today was because of Kim, and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking the best and most enthusiastic publicity agent available for book promotions."
—Thomas J. Sims, MD

If you’re looking for someone to get you and your book the publicity and attention it deserves – whether on the west coast or nationally, OR if you’re looking for a company to get you ready for your speaking engagements, book tours, or presentations to the media, look no further. Kim-from-L.A. Literary and Media Services will take care of all your needs.

As literary publicists, we tailor our campaigns to suit your needs and your budget. We provide everything from local and regional publicity to national book tours.

As media trainers, we take your great idea—whether it is in the form of a book, lecture or presentation—and help you to focus it, shape it, and deliver it with passion, excitement and clarity, whether to a reporter, in front of a camera, or to a live audience of thousands. We help you to create your own self-assured style, eliminate your fear of public speaking, and demonstrate how you can “own and control” your interview.

The services we provide are separate. You can hire us strictly for literary publicity or just for media training. And, of course, you can hire us for both! We invite anyone to give us a call at 323-655-6023, or to email us at kimfromla@earthlink.net to find out how we can help you with whatever you might need.

“I have never seen a publicist who cares about and nurtures her authors the way that Kim-from-L.A. does. And her results are extraordinary.”
—Larry Kirshbaum, formerly CEO and Chairman Time Warner Book Group, now with Waxman Leavell Literary Agency

"Kim is not only brilliant at nailing why your book is unique, she executes a winning plan using panache, brainpower and unflagging enthusiasm. I wouldn’t dare embark on a publicity campaign without Kim in the lead."
Kathleen Sharp, Award-winning journalist, author, Mr. & Mrs. Hollywood: Edie and Lew Wasserman and Their Entertainment Empire.
