Los Angeles, CA — Black Château founder Desireé Duffy receives the Publicist of the Year Award from the Book Publicists of Southern California (BPSC). During the organization’s 23rd IRWIN Awards, Duffy was presented the accolade which was held at the iconic Sportsman’s Lodge in Studio City, California, on October 11, 2017.

The event honored an array of 18 authors and publishing professionals. It also shined a spotlight on Irwin Zucker, the BPSC’s founder and namesake of the IRWIN Awards, and his 91st birthday celebration. Zucker was the evening’s MC and praised each winner as they took the podium.

Zucker said, “It is a pleasure to honor Desireé Duffy with the Publicist of the Year Award. She’s proven to be an incredible advocate for her clients and gets amazing press exposure for them. She is a delight to have in this industry. On behalf of the Book Publicists of Southern California, we are honored to salute her and her company, Black Château Enterprises.”

“At Black Château, our vision is giving storytellers—the amazing authors who create books that inspire, educate, entertain and stimulate imaginations—a platform to let their voices be heard. This award stands as a testament to all the passion and perseverance that’s gone into making Black Château a champion for authors from around the world,” Duffy said.

Black Château began as a small press and marketing company in April of 2016. Today, it is an agency offering a full spectrum of services to books, authors, and related industries. The company specializes in marketing, public relations, and digital media services. It is known for the Author Network, a program that offers authors the fundamental PR and marketing services needed to promote almost any book.

Duffy adds, “It has been a team effort. Dave Duffy and Bree Swider have helped in so many ways, and I am so grateful to them for making Black Château what it is today, and what it will be in the future. Bree has stepped up to help in the role of marketing communication and content management and does an amazing job for our clients.
