It’s that one thing almost everybody wants. And if you’re an aspiring author, I’m sure you’ve dreamt of sitting on your favorite talk show sofa, or being interviewed on that podcast you’re a fan of. Perhaps your dream is an Op Ed in the New York Times, or to be featured on Goop.

Whatever the dream, I understand the allure.

I began my career in PR and worked with authors on their media for over 15 years. I’ve been in almost every national tv studio in the country, and even had lunch with Oprah in her home (sorry, can’t say more, NDA’s!)

While there is an element of glamour to media, there’s also a very clear cut process to achieve it.

Because we know publishing is a business, and publishers are looking for authors who have begun their journey of visibility– PR and Media play a major role. But how do you get media BEFORE you even have a book?

THAT, my friends, is what we’re talking about on this week’s episode of Bound + Determined.

I sat down with author and publicity strategist Beth Nydick to get all the juicy details and action steps so you can begin getting in the media for your story and expertise.


We chat about:

  • Your value before you’re an author
  • Messaging that will grab the attention of media
  • Do’s and Dont’s of the process
  • Common missteps
  • Changing your mindset about visibility

Beth has 20 years of experience in TV production and speaking. Now, as a publicity strategist, she helps entrepreneurs scale their business and confidently appear on TV & Media. Her clients have been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc, GMA and more. Beth herself has been featured on The Drew Barrymore Show, Fast Company, Oprah, Parade, Forbes, Inc, Nylon Magazine and more. She is also the co-author of the top-rated cookbook “Clean Cocktails: Righteous Recipes for the Modern Mixologist”.
