The PR Net Next Gen, 2023: Pacific & Court

Pacific & Court is a full-service agency for book publicity and marketing, focused on supporting independent authors and publishers. Within their first two years of operation, the team gained three full-time publisher clients, plus 25 independent authors across more than a dozen genres. As the industry landscape continues to evolve, Pacific & Court gets creative with its PR and marketing strategies, capitalizing on emerging platforms like BookTok on TikTok. It’s working: for the second year in a row, clients Ulysses Press and Rocky Nook were named as two of the fastest growing independent publishers by Publishers Weekly. The company’s driving mission is to represent diverse authors and lift their work into mainstream media; in 2022, 40% of their authors and clients identified as BIPOC. Pacific & Court also prioritizes women- and BIPOC-owned bookstores for their book tour events and partnerships.
