Judy Twersky is fabulous! She’s the kind of person you want on your improv team, because she’s always, “YES! And …” Her spirit and energy get the job done, and no request is ever daunting! And I know from working with her on the Grease book, Tell Me More, Tell Me More and the play, Madwomen of the West, she’s also a BLAST!!!

Judy Twersky is the Queen of PR – in no time at all, she saw that my book was front and centre for key media players. To say she exceeded my expectations would be a woeful understatement. And, importantly, she made it all fun!

Judy Twersky knows everyone in the business. When she worked on promoting my tour and my CD, “Paul Shaffer & The World’s Most Dangerous Band,”  I had publicity coming out of my ears!

Judy Twersky is so much fun to work with. She makes PR seem easy!

James Earl Jones


Judy Twersky is so ridiculously effervescent, so wise, so good-hearted, so fashionably dressed, so famous in media circles, so ready and rarin,’ and so indefatigable that when every other publicist in New York and LA is asleep in his/her little  bed, Judy Twersky, by God, is out, laughing and glad-handing and telling people at parties about your book, your movie, your album. P.S. Then she goes home and texts them!  Nobody better.

Judy Twersky is what every TV producer wants in a publicist — her pitches are salient and newsworthy. She stays on top of every detail, is always charming and easy-going, and she understands what works — and what doesn’t.

As a former NBC Today Show senior producer, I literally got hundreds of pitches a day. Judy Twersky’s always rose to the top. She has a way of getting ‘in’ with the shows clients want, with equal parts savvy, smarts, and limitless charm. Plus — she understands television! When I decided to pursue my own on-camera appearances, I turned to Judy Twersky to make it happen. I’ve since appeared on HLN, CNN,The CBS Early Show, Today, and more. I couldn’t do it without Judy’s support!

Judy Twersky – a PR dream come true…She’s there when you need her to sing your song. A book, a tv show, radio, a speaking engagement, or a directional meeting about your career. Over a cup of coffee – (mine hot with 1/2 and 1/2 only) – you know your next steps and she makes sure you climb them correctly.

Judy Twersky is literally a dream publicist. I hired her because of her warmth, enthusiasm, tireless championing of her clients — and what I saw that she achieved, so excellently, for many author friends. She has heart, soul, perseverence, connections, smarts, razzamatazz, compassion — and she is highly effective. Judy will work endlessly, and classily, for a booking (and will get it!); will respond to you, with importantly spirit-raising optimism around the clock; and will take your book, or project, from humble publicity beginnings to a high profile place. People in all quarters of the industry love Judy. She operates with ethics, never-give-up assertiveness, and a rare, lovely humanity. I cannot recommend her more highly.

Sherman Yellen

Thanks to hiring Judy Twersky ​​PR, I was interviewed about my new memoir, Spotless, on a number of television programs. To my delight, thanks to her diligence, the book was also featured in the New York Times.  Judy worked tirelessly, and imaginatively to get my beloved book out into the world. I can think of no other person so dedicated to serving her clients, and I will be forever grateful to her for her remarkable efforts in my behalf.  She is extremely smart, literate, and caring. And a helluva nice person.

The joy of working with Judy is her genuine enthusiasm. She communicates that to everyone and brings them into the same joyful engagement that she sees. Who could ask for a better evangelist?

Judy Twersky is one of the best publicists in the publishing industry for photography/pop culture/celebrity-related book projects. I work with her whenever I can. I recommend her to authors and agents for these types of campaigns. Judy maintains an A-list network of media contacts, particularly among the most desirable national media outlets, and is savvy and experienced at handling high-profile authors and book campaigns. Most important, she gets impressive results. I highly recommend her.

Charles Melcher

President and Publisher, Melcher Media

I have worked in book publishing as a publicist for over 20 years, and until I worked on a project with Judy, I didn’t think the level of publicity she helped achieve for her clients was possible. I rely on my media databases to build relationships with the media. I wish one of those media databases WAS Judy, because she is better than any of them put together. She has the best contacts, and knows how to use them.

The top-notch, results-driven team at Judy Twersky PR warrants the highest praise possible. Judy’s well-honed media savviness and remarkable commitment to client service is a true rarity in today’s media relations culture.

Judy Twersky is a PR powerhouse! She’s a wonderful collaborator, strategist and an absolute delight to work with. Judy and her firm helped us launch and elevate our modest documentary film “Life in the Doghouse” about Danny and Ron’s Rescue to worldwide blockbuster status. Her understanding and sincere devotion to the success of the film is a big reason why Danny and Ron’s story can now be seen by millions of people around the world.

Judy Twersky made a huge difference in promoting my book, Ellis Island: Ghosts of Freedom — whether it was a CBS Sunday Morning interview, a walk through the island with Scott Simon for NPR’s Morning Edition, or being recognized by TIME Magazine as one of the 5 Best Photography Books of the Year. Once you have Judy engaged in your project, she’ll bring the same passion, thought and relentless pursuit that you would do for yourself; except you don’t know the people she knows.

Thanks to Judy Twersky, my book and musical show about evolution were prominently featured in the science section of The New York Times. In an unprecedented move, the Times then produced two videos of my songs about Darwin, one of which went viral on YouTube. The previous year, a graphic novel I scripted for my wife’s autobiography was the subject of a major segment on NBC’s Today Show…Judy’s track record speaks for itself.
