Kim makes my job easy! Kim consistently provides quality guests and experts. Not only does she anticipate my needs, she often has the answers before I ask the questions. She is the first person I call, and is one of the most professional and personable people I work with.

It's always a pleasure working on story leads from Kimberly at Publicity
Mavens. I know that what we arrange will be organized and that all of our
needs, from a television perspective will be met. She's there on site to
help, and she's always helpful, without getting in the way or 'stepping on
toes' as we get the story done. I know that when we follow up on a press
release from Kim, we'll have no regrets.

Kim has sent us the most outstanding women authors for our radio show. Her attention to detail and her drive for her clients to be in the limlight are outstanding. I work with several PR firms worldwide and can honestly say Kim is a perfectionist and such a joy to work with. She makes my job of booking women clients on our radio show alot easier. Thank you Kim!

Kim Plumley of Publicity Mavens is my fellow colleague. We first began working together, I believe, about 4-5 years ago when Kim first contacted Rave! regarding providing book reviews for her clients, usually Wiley & Sons, or authors, such as Michelle Borba.
We have since also expanded to networking back and forth, as well as Kim being one of my "go to people" when I have questions on book publishing or publishers, or when I am looking for related referrals. Most recently, she referred me to an excellent book-writing-for- publication coach.
To date, I have found Kim to be extremely professional, and by far one of the easiest publicists with which to work. One of the traits that I most enjoy about Kim is that she has found and succeeded at keeping a wonderful balance between professionalism and still maintaining the common-person warmth - when you meet her the first time you feel her openness, genuineness, and it seems like you have known her 'forever'.
If I ever need a publicist for anything, Kim and Publicity Mavens by far would be my first call!

Kimberly is an active community person providing her time and skill to help the Lantzville Log Society's community's newspaper, The Log. The paper's content has been diversified with the inclusion of her monthly book review. The book give-away has been greatly appreciated by the district residents, especially the winners of the book draw. Her reviews have been concise, illustrative, very timely and appropriate for the month of the year. We appreciate her donating time each month to provide the readers with a glimpse of the diverse selection of books available to us for enjoyment and education.

If a maven is one who has special knowledge, powers, and experience - an expert - then Plumley certainly fits the handle she's chosen for her company. She's pretty well a PR superhero amongst a breed who rarely rise above the status of a 'flack'. If I needed someone to organize my life, I'd call her. As it is, she calls me!

She's is funny, a fount of interesting factoids and her magnetic personality attracts all the right elements.
