BOCA RATON, Fla., May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Novelist, consultant and incisive opinion writer Jack Townsend, creator of the Sam Savage series, has retained TransMedia Group (www.transmediagroup.com) as both his PR firm and talent agent. The award-winning PR firm is also a licensed and accredited talent agency headed by former NBC vice president, Tom Madden.
"It's awesome and inspiring to work with writers as boldly imaginative as Jack Townsend," said Madden. "Jack's vision and creativity is always amazing and we intend to place him on a broader media landscape and deliver resources and scope to expand his publics, audience and career," said Madden, TransMedia's CEO. Madden is a writer himself who knows a thing or two about the inner workings of publishing and television in which he has excelled as an author and TV network programmer.
"The Sam Savage character Townsend has created is incredible. The scope for developing a long series of books is there and my team and I can't wait to work with Jack to expand his portfolio and promote his works," he said.
TransMedia publicity will highlight how Townsend began writing after a distinguished career as a management consultant. "Our publicity will show how as a fully immersive writer, Townsend puts himself in the locations of his stories to fully experience the environment and daily drumbeat of wherever his plot takes him." Focus groups have heaped praise on his initial outing as a novelist as well as on his subscription site where he publishes candid, forthright opinion pieces.
Tim Stergiou-Allen, VP of PR at TransMedia, said: "Townsend's novel, 'Doomsday Las Vegas,' is awesome and I can't wait to get this book on the bookshelves. His opinion essays are also easy to read. They simplify complex subjects and allow readers to fully understand his point of view, whether they agree of not, and enjoy a stimulating debate!"
Publicity will focus on building Townsend's online readership while promoting his novel in preparation for publication. TransMedia will promote Townsend's opinion essays and present him as a social commentator in traditional, digital and social media channels.
"The world is ready for the next great novel series Townsend has created. Let's hope everyone is ready for the adrenaline rush."
