Michael Taeckens creates high-profile marketing and publicity campaigns for authors, publishers, and literary organizations.
“Michael Taeckens is more than a publicist. He is a wizard, a life coach, a best friend, a maker of worlds. I have never experienced anything like the energy and professionalism of this man. And my career hadn’t either. Michael is worth much more than he charges—and I don’t like to spend money, so that means something. Doors sprung open that I had not even dared knock on before. His thoughtfulness and kindness were deeply touching. I can confess: when our contract for my latest book ended, I wept. Though eight hardcover printings made me feel better. I will never again go out with a new book without Michael guiding me.”
—Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The House of Broken Angels
