For Assistance with Book Publicity

While book publicity is typically managed by your book’s publisher, you are invited to share the news with the San Diego State University Media Relations team.

The media relations team can occasionally provide assistance to faculty who have a new book publishing.

We recommend that faculty authors work closely with their publisher's publicist, as this person can best help with trade and national publicity.


Faculty with pending book releases should use the submission form below.

This places your information in an electronic “inbox” where a team member will review your submission.


Additional tips for faculty authors

Consider planning a lecture or reading on campus in conjunction with your book release.

Work with the media relations team to draft and place an op-ed piece about current issues that are related to the book.

Work with your publisher and/or hire a freelance public relations professional or firm to help secure additional media coverage.
