TESTIMONIALS

'Anna Pallai is the best publicist I have ever worked with. We worked together for over ten years, with Anna designing and running the campaigns for books such as GB84, The Damned United and Red or Dead.  I think the success of these campaigns speaks for themselves, but beyond the campaigns, Anna's character and personality meant even the most demanding and tiring schedules were always superbly organised, and a great, great deal of fun.' 

David Peace

'Anna has worked on a number of fiction and non-fiction campaigns at Pan Macmillan, working both in and out of house. She works seamlessly with the rest of the team and always goes above and beyond to explore every angle and opportunity.  Anna delivers hard-hitting, imaginative and impeccably organised campaigns with the highest level of author care. Working with her is a huge pleasure.' 

Emma Bravo, Pan Macmillan 

'I've worked with Anna on several book projects across many years, starting with her at Faber, and later in her role as an independent publicist. She's consistently on the ball, smart, and dedicated. Her advice is spot on and contacts second to none. Working with her has always been a pleasurable experience.'

 Mark Urban

'Anna has been a superb publicist for me over many years.  Somehow she manages the impossible, to be supremely professional and efficient and to be warm, funny and friendly at the same time - just what an anxious author needs.' 

Jenny Uglow

'Anna is an excellent publicist - intelligent, creative and effective.  She is great to deal with and full of good ideas.  We will be working with her again.'
