“It is my great pleasure to endorse Thornton Communications. Sarah was recommended to me as a person who really understood how to market a book in New Zealand. I was told that she had excellent media contacts and could put together a campaign that would tell the world that I had a book that they should read. Sarah has done more than that. She has become a friend and someone who I totally trust. With her support and contacts we have made my book, ‘In the Arena’, a bestseller. I know that her media strategy is one of the reasons for our success. I commend her to anyone looking for a professional, well organised, articulate PR campaign.” Diane Foreman, CEO, The Emerald Group
