Premier solutions for today's

brand-driven literosphere

BMM assists authors, publishers, agents and organizations around the world through our branding, publicity and agency practices


Branding


BMM's literary branding practice develops leading author brands "beyond the book". The publishing venture we launched around British journalist, Melanie Phillips, was backed by Silicon Valley luminary, Peter Thiel among others.  


The Electric Media launch party in Mayfair was attended by two cabinet ministers, four members of parliament, three major newspaper editors, the former Archbishop of Canterbury and written about by all the British national newspapers.


"Within several hours of the launch of her new online venture, Melanie Phillips had surely achieved her objective. The headline in the Wall Street Journal? 'Britain's most high-profile columnist, broadcaster and author launches Melanie Phillips Electric Media.'"  

-The Guardian

"An Evening With Harry, Carrie & Garp" - J.K. Rowling, Stephen King and John Irving read from their works on August 1, 2006 at Radio City Music Hall. A joint production of Scribner & Scholastic.
