Michael Taeckens creates high-profile marketing and publicity campaigns for authors, publishers, and literary organizations.
“Michael Taeckens is simply extraordinary at bringing books to their broadest possible readerships. He’s passionate, intelligent, and committed—he brings an incredible array of skills into singular chorus. I watched my own book turn into a minor phenomenon under his careful curatorial skill and magical midwifery; it was nothing short of astounding. I was able to see what ‘buzz’ really means, and how it can work on behalf of a book—I felt Michael cultivating and sustaining a steady groundswell of excitement. He’s truly a tireless advocate, fueled by genuine passion and seasoned by years of experience. He works from the heart, for books he believes in, and I felt the impact of his work on deep levels—not just as a writer but as a human being.”
—Leslie Jamison, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Empathy Exams and The Recovering
