Unfinished By Priyanka Chopra Jonas

Midas secures blanket media coverage for international celebrity Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ inspirational autobiography, Unfinished, published by Penguin Michael Joseph.


The Brief

Midas was hired to deliver an impactful, high profile PR campaign for Unfinished by Priyanka Chopra Jonas, starting in November 2020 with widespread media coverage running throughout January and February 2021. Working closely with LZMG PR and the publisher, Midas was tasked with securing blanket coverage for the book across all media platforms to drive sales around publication, as well as supporting Penguin Michael Joseph’s sales and marketing efforts to leverage and maximise publicity.

The Work

Midas positioned Unfinished as a must-read, inspirational celebrity autobiography, and the biggest book to hit bookshops for January 2021. In turn, we positioned Priyanka Chopra Jonas as a positive voice in times of uncertainty, with the story of her meteoric rise providing a beacon of light during the pandemic and beyond. Through carefully co-ordinated press opportunities, we generated widespread publicity for the book across UK and Irish print, broadcast, and digital media channels, including book reviews and interviews with Priyanka across all media platforms, in addition to a digital book launch with a high-profile host.
