“My experience with Kim Petty was nothing short of terrific! Kim (and everyone on the Cave Henricks team) took the time to thoroughly research target markets for my book, Managing Up, and I am thrilled with the results. Kim worked diligently to find and connect with media outlets who would share the message of my book. I’m a first-time author, and Kim did an excellent job walking me through the entire process and making sure all my questions were answered along the way. I’m thrilled with the results and would recommend Kim as a publicist to any author!”
