    "Pierre O'Rourke is such a natural in what he does with the media, that if I could get him out of that desert to move to Los Angeles or New York - I would have a desk waiting for him. He sees problems as mere challenges in which he quickly adapts and solves before anyone else knows anything is amiss. He could be the one doing the publicity - or with his personality and writing abilities, he could easily be the one they are promoting."

As a co-host of a cable television show, I interact with all the authors that Pierre escorts and they all have praised his abilities. He knows the area and because of his knowledge, is able to recommend restaurants or other activities for the visiting authors. He is always on time when bringing authors to the studio. When a publicist is unsure about whom to ask to drive an author, I recommend Pierre without hesitation."

Dr. Marty Becker

Dr. Marty Becker

10 years as Veterinary Advisor on "Good Morning America", syndicated columnist, and author of Chicken Soup For The Pet Lover’s Soul, The Healing Power Of Pets, and The Ultimate Dog Lovers’ Guide.

“I’m known in the publishing world as a somewhat sophisticated old farm boy who rolls up his sleeves and works a book tour like a man harvesting the crops before a storm. From before the cock crows until after the hoot owl gives up for the night, I want to work at full speed. In all the book tours I’ve done, Pierre was the ONLY one who wanted to work even harder than I did! Of course he makes sure an author’s book tour gets the most bang for the buck. You can depend on him for being warm, accommodating, and getting you there on time. But more importantly, he has great relationships with members of the local media and is often responsible for additional important exposure. When I go to Arizona, I insist Pierre is the one greeting me as I get off the plane.

I had more media, made more appearances, and signed more books when Pierre assisted me than on any of my other stops on my book tour. I look forward to and insist on working with him each time I go to Arizona. In fact, Pierre is so good I’ve told him HE should write a book about how to run a successful tour. You’ll be wise to get him on your team.

Pierre is the answer to an author’s book touring nightmare. He is short on excuses and long on common sense and great with handling the challenges that often occur on a whirlwind tour. He makes the longest day fun while extremely productive. Whether it’s harvesting media, doing stock book signings at stores, or even going to book warehouses, I loved Pierre’s scorched-earth attitude when it came to accomplishing our common goal”

“Just because you know your way around a story doesn’t mean you won’t get lost going to your next book signing.

At the end of the day, you will sell more books than you imagined and you will have made a new friend.”
