“Working with Kourtney on Martina’s Kitchen Mix was a joy from beginning to end. Not only did I feel like my book was in excellent and capable hands, but her passion for what she does and her likable personality made the whole experience rewarding and enjoyable. I’ve worked with a lot of teams over my 26-year career, and I’ve found the most difficult thing is finding someone who is a leader and a team player. Kourtney excels at both. I sincerely hope we get to work together again in the future.” – Martina McBride, country music icon and author of Martina’s Kitchen Mix
“Kourtney Sokmen is smart, efficient, and well-connected. There is no way we would have had two bestselling books back-to-back without her amazing skills. There wasn’t one television show or magazine that we weren’t included in. To say every producer and editor was impressed with her would be an understatement. Many commented to me that they hadn’t ever worked with a publicist as quick to respond and fulfill requests or as organized as Kourtney.
I decided to do a two-month book tour with both books. Kourtney had me where I needed to be on time and without any mistakes. It would have been a disaster without her. I could go on for days, but just know any client would be lucky as hell to have her as a publicist!” – Elizabeth Heiskell, TODAY show contributor and bestselling author of What Can I Bring? and The Southern Living Party Cookbook
“In writing SOUL, eyes wide open, I understood there were no guarantees of success. Navigating through the world of media and PR should only be done by professionals with insight and established connections. With this expertise, they give authors a fighting chance. Kourtney is the best professional for the task.
SOUL is a great book that I’m very proud of for many reasons. What I am mostly proud of is the team of dedicated people led by Kourtney’s insight & masterful leadership. Any author would be very fortunate to work with her at any time of their journey. She’s one of the most important keys to success.” – Todd Richards, James Beard nominated chef and author of SOUL: A Chef’s Culinary Evolution in 150 Recipes
“From the day we started working together, I felt I had a teammate, advocate, and a smart and savvy publicist in Kourtney. She is creative, passionate, and incredibly detail-oriented. In the midst of the coloring book craze, she got my books to stand out with her brilliant campaign strategy. By getting my books into the hands of the right reviewers and media outlets, she delivered real results that launched one of my titles into the top 100 books in the first week of release. That success propelled my company forward to the point that I now have three employees, when I used to be a business of one.” – Wendy Piersall, bestselling author of Coloring Flower Mandalas
“Over the years I had the pleasure of working with Kourtney as a publicist for my six books (including The Matcha Miracle, The DASH Diet Cookbook, Water Infusions, etc.) with Ulysses Press. She was amazing to work with and always thinking of creative ideas to promote my books. She even booked me for my first segment on national TV. I would recommend her to any author with a new book coming out.” – Dr. Mariza Snyder, national bestselling author of The Essential Oils Hormone Solution
“As soon as I found out Kourtney would be the publicist for my book, I knew I was in excellent hands. From start to finish she was on top of letting me know every little thing she was doing to get my book out in the world—and she did a lot!

Kourtney is a publicist who goes above and beyond, and anyone who has the privilege of working with her is extremely lucky!” – Leigh Weingus, freelance journalist and author of A Rainbow Of Smoothie Bowls
“I worked with Kourtney on the release of my cookbook Classic Snacks Made from Scratch and it was a wonderfully collaborative experience.
