Steve Harrison has helped 15,000+ non-fiction authors achieve new heights of influence and income

Author Success is the flagship brand of Bradley Communications Corp.

Founded in 1985 and named after the famous World War II general Omar Bradley, Steve and Bill Harrison's Bradley Communications in suburban Philadelphia provides a variety of publications, services and training events for authors, experts, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, public relations professionals, and others to help them score more media coverage.

The Harrison brothers and their team helped Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen launch the phenomenally bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series. They also helped get publicity for such New York Times bestselling books as Rich Dad Poor Dad and Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.

Their clients have appeared on such leading national TV outlets as Oprah, The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, as well as in many major print publications and on countless radio shows and several popular podcasts.

Bradley Communications hosts the National Publicity Summit, a conference during which attendees have the chance to learn from and personally meet top journalists and producers.

All told, Bradley Communications has helped more than 15,000 non-fiction authors promote their books as guests on radio and TV talk shows — more than any PR firm on the planet.

About Our Principals, Steve and Bill Harrison

Steve Harrison is the chief instructor for most Author Success training programs. A graduate of Davidson College, Steve was first bitten by the media bug in high school while working as a freelance writer for the local newspaper.

A 2:44 marathoner in his younger days, today Steve’s running around is mostly limited to the tennis court. Steve has been happily married for more than 30 years to his wife, Laura.

Bill Harrison is Bradley Communications' CEO, overseeing day-to-day operations, marketing, and strategic partnerships. A graduate of Haverford College, Bill began his career as a freelance photojournalist and covered such notables as Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and others. His photos appeared in Newsweek and Gannett Newspapers, and on the United Press International wire service.

In 1997, Bill did a 3,000-mile solo bicycle ride across America, from California to Florida. A voracious reader, he is incapable of driving past a bookstore without going in and buying many more books than he should... much to the dismay of his wife, Deby.
