Welcome Children’s & Young Adult Books Enthusiasts!

SoCal PR ~ Celebrating 20 Years in 2023!

Welcome to SoCal Public Relations!
Literary P.R. –
Specializing in Children’s & Young Adult Books

As we enter the busy Fall book season, for my author and illustrator friends, we’re offering our Literary PR Tune-Up service only $500 for 30 days if you sign up by May 15, 2023!!  (extended because we want to help as many authors as possible before the busy Fall 2023 season)

For my author and illustrator friends across the U.S. who prefer to handle their own publicity or don’t have a recent release, I’m now offering a reduced rate for my consultation service – a “Literary PR Tune-Up.” This 30-day service is usually $750, but until May 15, 2023, we’re offering a special short-term price of $500 for our guidance to help you take charge of publicity for your books. We look forward to helping you maximize your outreach and streamline your methods!

Literary PR Tune-Up includes:

  • Assessment of your current outreach
  • Suggestions to consider incorporating in the future
  • Social media content and frequency coaching to increase followers
  • Insider tips for how to reach your target markets
  • Answer your questions about best ways to promote your books
  • Free copy of SoCal PR’s 10 Essential PR Tips
“I would recommend Rebecca’s 30-Day Literary Tune Up to any author who wants to improve their online presence and enhance their marketing appeal to sell books. I was very pleased with the results. She helped clean up wording on my website, advised me on ways to increase click-throughs, such as adding a video to my webpage and a blog link to my Facebook page.  She offered content suggestions for social media posts.  She offered advice to clean up my author bio and book page on Goodreads as well as other book-related websites. She provided marketing suggestions for my bookmarks, postcards, and one sheet. She was refreshing and easy to work with and delivered great advice from a polished PR background.”
Jeff Alt, Speaker & Author (The Adventures of Bubba Jones, popular children’s series, A Walk for Sunshine, and a few other well-received hiking books)

  • Offering full service campaigns for YA and children’s authors and publishers across the U.S. and Canada, as well as Consultation services for new authors!

My name is Rebecca Grose, and even though I’m now located in Southern California, I work with authors and publishers in New York, Indiana, California, New Mexico, Florida, Texas, Washington, and everywhere in between! (I’ve also worked with publishers in the U.K. and Canada.) After more than 20 years in young adult and children’s book publicity, I will work with you to build buzz for upcoming new releases, line up successful appearances and signings, generate additional media coverage for backlist titles, while helping authors grow their brand. Having worked for both large and small publishers (incl Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, DK Publishing, and Harcourt), and using my experience in all genres and age levels (picture books, YA, historical fiction, middle grade, etc), my clients and I work closely together to strategize and design successful publicity campaigns. My services also include consulting…to answer questions and offer guidance re participation at conventions or conferences, how to work with your publisher to achieve your goals, and much more.

Tanglewood Publishing
Peggy Tierney, President & Publisher:  “Rebecca Grose is a seasoned professional in publicity and knows how to get results. What makes her special is that she is also someone who is passionate about the books she promotes; she puts heart into her publicity efforts and I believe that is the secret ingredient to her success. Even when Tanglewood was a brand-new publisher, she was responsible for getting book reviews ranging from the traditional trade journals to news wires to magazines to review websites. She not only handled the publicity, but often helped me develop strategies for other marketing areas and gave me important general tips and ideas for my company, invaluable advice when I was a new publisher. In short, Rebecca Grose has been instrumental in the success of Tanglewood, and I highly recommend her.”
