Andrea’s greatest asset is her thoughtful, personalized, strategic outreach. For our book, Composing the Cheese Plate (Running Press), Andrea set up a robust book tour with companies including Twitter, Google, Lucas Arts, VMWare and a number of consumer-facing food-related spaces including The Culinary Institute of America at COPIA, Omnivore Books, and the San Francisco Cooking School. Our events were a terrific success, and we could not have been more pleased. Andrea is great aligning her network of media and event partners to create the most effective promotions that move the needle on book sales. She knows what works and what doesn’t. She’s a great PR partner for any author hoping to build their brand.

From the moment Andrea and I first spoke, she exuded expertise in food and lifestyle book publicity AND genuine enthusiasm for my success as an author. Andrea freely offered suggestions to position myself, to maximize exposure and interest for the book launch, and to connect with other marketing partners offering expert services for various budgets. Her bubbly energy boosted my confidence in putting my book out there (scary for a first-time author). I especially appreciated Andrea offering flexible options for working together based on my own goals and budget. Can’t recommend Andrea Burnett highly enough. A real gem!
– Susie Wyshak, author of Good Food, Great Business
Andrea is a tireless advocate for our widely diverse range of titles, including cookbooks, pop culture reference, and essential guides from the likes of Field & Stream, Popular Photography, and Parenting magazine, including The Total Outdoorsman Manual, which has sold more than 200,000 copies thanks in large part to her support. Her creativity is a constant inspiration as we formulate our marketing plans, and she is constantly on high alert for new opportunities to promote our titles and authors, often challenging the rest of us to step further “out of the box” than we otherwise might. Her infectious enthusiasm makes it a delight for everyone, especially our authors, to work with and learn from her.
–Gonzalo Ferreyra, Director of Marketing, Print and Digital, Weldon Owen Publishing
I have hired Andrea Burnett several times to develop and implement national publicity campaigns for my clients which complement their larger, strategic marketing goals. Her proposals are always thoughtful and timely — and the results are always impressive. I strongly recommend her.
–Catherine Huchting, Director of Business Development & Client Services, Chronicle Books, Custom Division
Andrea is a manager, a mentor and a friend. She helped me navigate the ins and outs of complicated campaigns. She was generous with her impressive experience and wisdom—providing our team with weekly courses in all aspects of publicity. I’m incredibly thankful that I got to work for and know Andrea. I continue to seek her guidance.
–Laina Adler, Senior Director of Marketing at HarperCollins Publishers
Andrea Burnett embodies all of the qualities of an ideal publicist. She is honest, efficient and creative and she gets the job done. We worked with Andrea on the launch of our co-publishing endeavor with a leading media conglomerate (USA TODAY) and it resulted in national broadcast, print and Internet coverage. We were extremely pleased with the level of professionalism and enthusiasm she articulated in all of her projects and we would welcome any opportunity to work with Andrea again in the future. In addition, our staff very much enjoyed working with her, as she brought fresh ideas to all of our strategy meetings.
–Jackie Thompson,Vice President, Trade Publishing, Nolo (www.nolo.com)
Being a unique industry with very little experience working with a publicist, we had almost no idea what to expect. Andrea, with her vast knowledge and expertise has not only immediately positioned us for consideration for television and in magazines, but has guided our staff into becoming a cohesive and educated unit that better understands publicity and how it relates to the tasks going forward. Both personally and professionally, Andrea has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She has become an integral part of our organization, and we are delighted with the energy, vitality and professionalism she brings with her.
–Joel Kaminsky, Owner, Good Vibrations (www.goodvibes.com)
Andrea worked with me on the launch of my cook book Anna Getty’s Easy Green in Organic in 2010. It was such a joy working with her. She was enthusiastic, professional and well tapped into the network I needed for a successful book launch. I never needed to chase after her as Andrea was always on her game and constantly kept me up to date on the activity during my book campaign. She is a true team player and wonderfully creative. Andrea will be first on my list of calls for my next book.
–Anna Getty, author and founder of Pregnancy Awareness Month
I am deeply impressed by the level of personal care and attention I have received with Andrea Burnett. I have had experience with the larger PR firms, and find that the service provided at this boutique firm far exceeds that of the so-called big guns. Andrea is an absolute powerhouse with tireless energy and tenacity; she has landed me appearances on the Today Show, as well as spokesperson opportunities for Jamba Juice, POM, and Fiji Water. I owe a great deal to Andrea and would highly recommend her to those seeking to build their brand.
–Esther Blum, author of Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous and Secrets of Gorgeous (www.eatdrinkandbegorgeous.com)
Having had the distinct pleasure of working with Andrea Burnett for many years, I am very pleased to recommend her for all your publicity needs and beyond. As a television producer I have worked with so many publicists and Andrea is leagues above them all. We have collaborated on several projects where Andrea continually brought intelligence, commitment and creativity to each project. She is the best!
–Debra Supnik, VP Development & Talent, Weller/Grossman Productions (www.wellergrossman.com)
I have never worked with a more creative, energetic, and magnetic person as Andrea Burnett. Andrea was my manager when I first started out in publicity and I know I wouldn’t be half as successful today without her great leadership and generous instruction. If you are building your brand, need help spreading the word about a campaign, or need someone to think big and make things happen Andrea is the person you want on your team. I’ve never met anyone who has worked with Andrea and not loved every minute.
–Christina Loff, Marketing Director, Hello Lucky
Andrea is the proverbial ball in motion that never stops. She is steady, enthusiastic, and unjaded. Her partnership style is authentically warm and she has remained consistently devoted to my project. She surfs the public relations wave with a comfortable ease, constantly seeking new opportunities to enhance my exposure.
–Ken Solin, Author, The Key to the Men’s Room (www.thekeytothemensroom.com/)
Andrea Burnett cares and delivers. She was the perfect PR person to hire for my book Unbinding The Heart
She got my message and made things happen with such personal enthusiasm
When the CBS talk show passed on having me on she found the perfect way to pitch me to get a yes. She works diligently intelligently with high intention, always keeping me informed of the costs so that I was never surprised and finding new venues to promote me and the book. Hire her and you’ll be so happy you did.
–Agapi Stassinopoulos, Author, motivational speaker, “Unbinding the Heart”
I have worked with Andrea Burnett for more than 10 years and both as an in-house director of publicity and on a consulting basis. Andrea is one of the most respected publicists in publishing and is beloved by media. In addition to crafting and executing campaigns for many bestselling authors, Andrea has worked tirelessly and brilliantly to launch first time authors and help establish brands. Andrea understands how to cull and present the information and author in a way that resonates with both the media and consumers. Her passion and enthusiasm is infectious and many authors, publishers and booksellers rely on her knowledge and experience. I highly recommend Andrea to any author, publisher and company and can give a dozen leading publishing contacts who will also sing her praises.
