Plank PR has worked with Richard and Judy since the launch of their hugely successful Book Club with WHSmith in September 2010. Since then they have launched Spring (January) and Summer (May) and Autumn (September) Book Clubs each year, plus a successful children’s selection.
Their website www.richardandjudy.co.uk hosts a plethora of content for Book Club fans, creating a virtual space for Britain’s Biggest Book Club where people can exchange reviews, thoughts and hear directly from the authors through unique podcast interviews hosted by Richard and Judy.
The forthcoming Summer Book Club list will be announced in May 2014.
Alongside the publicity for the Book Club, Plank PR also worked alongside both Richard and Judy independently to promote their debut novels and also launched Richard and Judy’s Search for a Bestseller competition - a national competition to find first time authors. Richard and Judy are leading the selection process, along with editors at the book’s future publisher Quercus, plus experts from literary agency Furniss Lawton. The winning writer will receive a publishing deal worth £50,000 from Quercus for the rights to sell their novel around the world.
