“Through February Media, Gretchen brings a gritty, tenacious yet inventive bend to the world of book promotion. What sets her agency apart is the higher level of thinking and sophistication that goes into crafting a media campaign. Book promotion is not just about getting your name in front of the public, of course. It is also about delivering a unique message that resonates and compels potential readers to take action. That is what Gretchen and her team deliver.”
- Dr. William Davis


Girl Walks Out of a Bar

Lisa Smith

“Gretchen and her team exceeded not just my expectations of what media could do for my book, Girl Walks Out of a Bar - they exceeded my imagination of what was even possible. Being with a small, independent publisher, I knew I would need serious media and publicity expertise to get the word out. I researched potential firms and interviewed leading contenders. Gretchen was easily the most impressive both in terms of credentials and energy. She brings a laser-like focus to her work that yields incredible results. When I shared with her a study I thought relevant to my book, she suggested that I go home that night and write an opinion piece on it. Not only did she come up with that great idea - she got the piece placed in The Washington Post and it also ran in the Chicago Tribune. My book was also a recent Best New Books Pick in PEOPLE Magazine. Gretchen and her team have secured tons of online and industry articles and interviews for me, as well as pushing for author events. I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Gretchen and her terrific team.”

Your Band Sucks

Jon Fine

Gretchen and her February Media team are just all kinds of awesome—smart, kind, funny, ultra-connected, and tenacious as all get out. The thing to do here, I guess, is to list the outlets that covered or reviewed or excerpted my book—New York Times, Studio 360, Esquire, L.A. Times, The Atlantic, Pitchfork, I could go on. But beyond all that, what impressed me each day was their endless creativity and determination not just to get everything done but to get everything done right, regardless of what it takes. Also—and most importantly--they are just lovely human beings. The last goddamn thing I want to do right now is to spend another couple of years writing a book, but it would be almost worth it if I could work with Gretchen et al again.”
