Comments from our clients, colleagues and friends in the media
"With M&M, great publicity is just the beginning. When you hire Jana and Pamela, you tap into high-energy, counter-intuitive, big idea thinking from two of the brightest minds in the book business. And they’re two degrees of separation from everyone – including Elvis (don’t ask). If you don’t feel you get far more than your money’s worth, laughed far more than you thought possible and ended up with the hottest book campaign possible, I owe you a bottle of Dave’s Insanity Sauce. Hire them now!"
--Allen Arnold, former Senior Vice President & Publisher, Thomas Nelson

“In my 24 years in the publishing world I have been a publicist, hired publicists, and had publicists working on my own books. And in my view, nobody does it like Muntsinger-McClure. They are smart, thorough, professional, experienced, connected—and fun to work with on top of that! When they're in charge of a project, you can rest in knowing that it is in the best hands possible. When anyone asks me, ‘Who's the best?’, without hesitation I say, ‘Muntsinger-McClure.’"
