Michelle Aielli Named Director of Publicity at Little, Brown

Michelle Aielli will now serve as director of publicity at Little, Brown and Company. At the same time, Sabrina Callahan has been promoted to assistant director of publicity for James Patterson.

Here’s more about Aielli’s work with that mega-bestselling author: “she spearheaded all major publicity around Patterson publishing events, including the launch of the Michael Bennett series, his guest appearance on The Simpsons, his Guinness World Records induction, the celebration of his 20th anniversary with Little, Brown and Company, and all major media hits, including the front pages of both USA Today and the New York Times Magazine.”

Callahan joined the Hachette imprint in 2007 as senior publicist, working on a number of campaigns including Uwem Akpan’s Say You’re One of Them, Robert Wright’s Evolution of God, and Elizabeth Kostova’s The Swan Thieves.
