Michael Taeckens creates high-profile marketing and publicity campaigns for authors, publishers, and literary organizations.
“If Michael Taeckens were a book he would be a bestseller, and not a trashy bestseller, but a classic—one that makes us all glad that a truly worthy book is getting the attention it deserves. He’s the kind of publicist who gets the kind of book you have written and doesn’t just have a cookie-cutter formula for how to get your book into the hands of readers. As a reluctant public persona myself, Michael made me eager to participate in my books’ promotion. I felt I had my front, back, and all sides covered. He’s sensitive, easy to work with, very smart, supportive, and oh-so-elegant. In fact, he snows your hosts before you even get there, and then disappears, convincing everyone that YOU are the star. But he is!”
