TESTIMONIALS

“Angela was the perfect publicist. Warm, responsive and connected in New York City, she had a big role in my book achieving a trifecta in book PR: a feature on NPR, a People magazine Best New Book Pick, and a New York Times bestseller. I can’t recommend her more highly!”

-- KATHRYN AALTO, AUTHOR OF THE NATURAL WORLD OF WINNIE THE POOH

 

 

“I nearly worked with one of the ‘big name’ publicity firms for my book Huddle — but the second I got off the phone with Angela for the first time, I knew she was it! There are no assistants… no ‘one size fits all’ with her. She offers one-on-one bespoke service with real knowledge of the industry, kindness, and just enough push (“Brooke, I know you’ve already done loads of press… but say ‘yes’ to this podcast and here’s why…”). Thank you Angela!”

-- BROOKE BALDWIN, AUTHOR OF HUDDLE

“Angela Baggetta brings to her work commitment, dedication, and an organized can-do attitude that makes her a pleasure to work with. I both enjoyed working with her and thought that her work made an important difference in how the book was received.  I consider myself lucky to have worked with Angela on this book and look forward to working with her on other books in future.”

-- DR. SANDRO GALEA, AUTHOR OF THE CONTAGION NEXT TIME

 

 

“The day my book was released, I appeared on ‘The Daily Show’ with Trevor Noah. Me—a lowly professor! That, and much of the subsequent success of my book, is entirely due to Angela.”

-- SARA GOLDRICK-RAB, AUTHOR OF PAYING THE PRICE 

“If you have a book to promote, you need Angela Baggetta in your corner. She’s smart, tenacious, well-connected, and easy to work with. She’s respectful of your time and will understand your goals and desires. More than anything else, Angela has good judgment—something anyone who wants a successful book launch in these crazy times desperately needs.”

-- RICHARD HASEN, AUTHOR OF ELECTION MELTDOWN

 

“Angela quickly became one of the biggest cheerleaders for my book Pregnant Girl, and it made such an impact.  Her media savvy, great rapport with everyone from my publisher to reporters, and her ability to quickly turn things around resulted in amazing exposure for the book. As an added bonus, she is so kind and wonderful to work with!”

-- NICOLE LYNN LEWIS, AUTHOR OF PREGNANT GIRL

“One of the smartest–if not the smartest–things I did to prepare for the publication of American Harvest, was to hire Angela Baggetta. We published a few weeks after lockdown began for the pandemic, and while these were not conditions we had expected to encounter, Angela missed nothing. She adapted quickly and I never felt panic, or a lapse in professionalism. But on top of that, she was poised, calm, reassuring, quick and proficient. She has excellent connections and advice, and I felt like I had some kind of turbo-charged agent at my side, connecting me to all the right people. She helped me adapt to the changing news cycle, and tackled each week with unflagging energy and enthusiasm. I recommend her without reservation, as she is worth every cent. If I write another book of nonfiction, I know I will be calling on her services again.”

-- MARIE MUTSUKI MOCKETT, AUTHOR OF AMERICAN HARVEST 

“Angela Baggetta was the best publicist I could have hoped for: She got the project from the start, was imaginative in her approach to spreading the word, and dogged in the pursuit of the right media and speaking opportunities. It was a true pleasure to work with her–and my book would not have reached nearly as large an audience without her dedication!”

-- YASCHA MOUNK, AUTHOR OF THE PEOPLE VS. DEMOCRACY

“Besides knowing everyone in the business, besides having an uncanny ability to get you on the exact right show with the exact right interviewer, besides knowing just how to position your book–besides all that, the best thing about having Angela Baggetta as your publicist is that she’s a joy to work with.”

-- JOE NOCERA, CO-AUTHOR OF INDENTURED AND ALL THE DEVILS ARE HERE

“Angela is incredibly competent and dedicated. Since she read my manuscript, she understood the key message and made it her personal mission to spread it. She was strategic in drafting a plan that resulted in an exceptional launch week, and very flexible in responding to opportunities that followed. Throughout, she worked tirelessly to get the word out about Couples That Work to international, national, and local media. I was lucky to work with her and I recommend her highly.”

-- JENNIFER PETRIGLIERI, AUTHOR OF COUPLES THAT WORK

 

“Angela Baggetta is extraordinary. She went absolutely all out for my book. She applied her mastery of the national and local mainstream media–pundits, reviewers, radio, television hosts, bloggers–and pitched the book high and low and across the country, and with amazing results.  She’s brilliant and fun to work with too.”

-- ARLIE RUSSELL HOCHSCHILD, AUTHOR OF STRANGERS IN THEIR OWN LAND

 

“Angela Baggetta brought a winning combination to bear on the launch of my book Smalltime: A Story of My Family and the Mob. She has energy, enthusiasm, creativity and connections, and she did a remarkable job of getting coverage, from “Fresh Air” to my hometown newspaper. If you’re looking for a freelance publicist who will work with as well as for you, you couldn’t do better.”

-- RUSSELL SHORTO, AUTHOR OF SMALLTIME

 

 

“Angela is absolutely sensational and I loved working with her!”

-- CASS SUNSTEIN, CO-AUTHOR OF NUDGE; AUTHOR OF WISER AND IMPEACHMENT: A CITIZEN’S GUIDE

“Angela Baggetta did a spectacular job for both my books, which received far more media attention than I ever have hoped–and in all the best places. She was relentless, constantly working her contacts to set me up with national media interviews, the most popular regional NPR shows, and outstanding events. She found me high-profile outlets for excerpts and op-eds, and helped me shape them to fit the news cycle. Working directly with Angela, who is very hands on, was an immensely rewarding and fun experience!”
