Description: About Wunderkind PR, Inc
Elena Stokes founded Wunderkind PR, Inc in September 2008 after more than a decade in Publicity at Tor and Forge Books, Macmillan; her last five years there she oversaw the department as Director of Publicity. Tanya Farrell, former Associate Publisher and Vice President of Publicity at Picador, joined as a Partner in December 2009 and runs the NJ office. With a combined forty years of experience in publishing, Elena and Tanya offer commercial, genre, and literary sensibilities to each campaign. The Wunderkind PR philosophy is that it takes personal attention and creative planning to grow an author effectively. Whether it is building an author as a brand and expanding his or her audience or focusing in on a particular fan group or specific media contacts to disseminate a message, Wunderkind PR creates comprehensive publicity plans from the ground up, and works to place print, blog, and broadcast bookings at the time of on-sale. Wunderkind PR has had the pleasure of working with New York Times bestselling and award-winning authors including Ernest Cline, Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, Denise Kiernan, Peter James, Andy Weir, and many more, as well as bestselling movie/tv tie-in properties such as The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Star Wars and more.
