Literary Publicity Firm Precedent Media Unlimited to Close

precedent.jpgOnline literary publicist Jason Gordon has decided to close the publicity firm he founded, Precedent Media Unlimited.

“For over three years, I have worked hard to make sure that Precedent Media delivered the most thorough and progressive online campaigns. It has been an honor to work with so many great authors and publishing houses,” he explained in an emailed statement. Asked about future plans he said he is “exploring options and can be contacted [via email].”

At Precedent, Gordon handled publicity campaigns for bestselling authors like Nick Hornby and John Grisham. Before founding his own firm, Gordon served stints at Crown Publishing Group and Oxford University Press. In those positions, he worked campaigns for writers that included then-Senator Barack Obama, rock star Gene Simmons, and journalist William Safire.
