What clients and the media have to say about Rod Mitchell...
Author Testimonials..."I have had Rod Mitchell on retainer for less than 3 weeks and I've already been on national television and national radio three times each. I've been in the media for 15 years and in that time have hired numerous independent publicists and other outlets like Radio-TV-Interview Report and Talkers Magazine, but nobody has delivered proof positive results and bookings like this guy. He's reasonably priced and he knows his business. And if you think the $5000/month and up hot shots can execute better than Rod - think again!" - Dean Tong, forensic trial consultant & author
"Rod is incredible! In 90-days he took my book to bestseller status! I have never worked with a more dedicated professional, or one who is so well connected to the media. I recommend him without reservation." Edmund J. Pankau - author of 'Hide Your Assets & Disappear'
"My dream of reaching high profile companies was only a dream until I met Rod Mitchell. With his insight, creativity, contacts and experience, he has become the Cartographer of my career.

"I am a first-time author and faced so many unfamiliar experiences, among them selecting a publicist. I was cautious every step of the way, checking references, and asking a myriad of questions. I selected Rod, after screening more than half a dozen publicists, and hearing glowing reviews of his work. Rod carefully mentored me, walking me through every step of the interview process, coaching me and preparing me for the un-nerving world of the media. After Rod booked me on CBS Early Show, the doors continued to open and I found myself on more than half a dozen national programs and nearly one hundred radio and TV interviews. Rod made our relationship a fun and confidence-building experience. I recommend him highly to anyone who is seeking exposure. Be prepared for some major fun." Laura Carroll - author of 'Families of Two'

We highly recommend Rod and his agency." Bill Paige - Page Music - Nashville, TN
"When actor Mary McDonough referred us to Rod Mitchell, we did not think a Houston-based agency could compete with those right here in LA.

He was enthusiastic, professional and most important - he delivered." Jon Walmsley - Independent Producer (formerly of The Waltons televison series) - LA
"When production companies come to Houston and ask us who we would recommend as a publicist, Rod is at the top of our list.
