RESUME andy reynolds
I am an experienced book publicist, working primarily with visual, nonfiction, and socially conscious titles. I came to book publicity after a varied career in the music business where I’ve been a music trade editor, album designer, label manager and music publicist. I am also an experienced graphic designer, this RESUME book—and the five book covers within—being an example of my work. In 2015, I donated a media and crowdfunding campaign to save my favorite neighborhood restaurant, B&H Dairy (a kosher lunch counter established in 1938), in the wake of the deadly March 2014 Second Avenue fire. Media placements included two New York Times features and simultaneous evening news coverage of the reopening on NY1, NBC, CBS and Fox. The owners attribute the crowdfunding campaign, which raised nearly $30,000.00, to saving their business. (I also designed their popular “CHALLAH! por favor” t-shirt.) In June 2020, I ran a GoFundMe campaign raising $60,000 to save the same restaurant during COVID-19.
