Book Promotion Forum and Books & Booze

The Book Promotion Forum (formerly known as the Northern California Book Publicity & Marketing Association) is an organization devoted to education about the publicity, promotion, marketing, and distribution of books throughout Northern California and beyond. Founded in 1975 by a group of twelve publicists as the Northern California Book Publicists' Association (NCBPA), the group changed its name to recognize the marketing functions its programs frequently feature and the breadth of its membership.

The Book Promotion Forum (BPF) membership includes a broad spectrum of publishing colleagues: publicity, promotion, marketing and sales professionals within publishing houses; freelance book publicists and marketing consultants; literary agents, authors, media escorts, trade associations, wholesalers, and others.

The BPF Board meets once a month at Berrett-Koehler Publishers to discuss upcoming events and panels.

We are always looking for enthusiastic members to join our team! Please contact us at for more information.
