Claire McKinney Joins Stellar Faculty at Premiere Publishing Conference in Charleston, SC

PubSense_logoFebruary 8, 2015, CHARLESTON, SC – The PubSense Summit™ team is thrilled to announce that Founder of Claire McKinney Public Relations Claire McKinney will be a featured speaker at the 2015 PubSense Summit taking place at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, SC, March 22-24, 2015! The Summit is comprised of the best and brightest people in publishing, author branding and book marketing, all gathered to help emerging authors and small publishers make sense of a rapidly shifting landscape.

Claire has been working in public relations and publicity for eighteen years and recently she was invited to be on the Today Show to provide expert commentary for a segment on self-publishing. She has worked at several publishing houses promoting books and authors, and creating branding campaigns. Prior to starting her own company she was the VP, Director of Publicity for Henry Holt and Company and the Director of Publicity for Miramax Books. Since the inception of Claire McKinney PR, LLC, Claire has broadened her work outside the realm of books to include organizations and products related to education and health, as well as corporate branding campaigns.

Claire will be a featured speaker on two panels: Book and Author PR: Making Sense of Press Kits, Launch Parties and More and Master Class—Increasing Exposure Part 2. In each, Claire will draw from her nearly two decades of public relations experience to share her insights on how authors can draw attention to their books and capitalize on it.

“Claire has led numerous authors in successful book campaigns,” said Brenda McClain, PubSense Summit partner. “She gets results for her clients, and we’re confident she’ll show our attendees how to achieve results as well. We can’t wait to meet her in Charleston.”
