Daniel Metcalf Bids Adieu

Porn Valley- Stormy Daniels had Daniel Metcalf on the phone Wednesday night during her KSEX show. Metcalf, the former publicist at Wicked Pictures, put out the following press release earlier.

Los Angeles, California – A former mainstream literary agent and adult industry journalist before joining Wicked Pictures six years ago, Daniel Metcalf has resigned from his position as Wicked Pictures Publicity Director, and launched Daniel Metcalf Public Relations, a full-service PR Firm & Boutique Literary Management Agency.

Reflecting on the transition from Wicked to DMPR, Metcalf revealed “One of the greatest experiences of my life has been being a part of Wicked Pictures as it evolved from an intimate family-run business to a thriving corporation of some thirty-five people. I am both grateful and indebted to Steve Orenstein to the many opportunities he has given me.” Looking to the future, Metcalf added, “DMPR serves authors of intelligent, adult nonfiction. We are particularly interested in contemporary culture, current affairs and politics, biography and history, business, science and technology, environment, food and cooking, health and medicine, and New Age and sexual self-help. At this time, we do not represent fiction, stage plays, screenplays, poetry, or books for children or young adults.

“Our clients include journalists, academics, musicians, and expert authors. If you are a writer seeking a literary agent, or a performer seeking PR, we invite you to explore our sites, www.danielmetcalf.com and www.myspace.com/danielmetcalfpr

Summing up his thoughts on the move, Metcalf concluded, “With DMPR we hope to bridge the adult genre and the mainstream world in a fresh, intelligent way. Our current clients split the difference between genre and non-genre. When I last worked in the publishing field, I was very much enamored of the work of Ayn Rand, and I still try to emulate her moral code in my work, specifically the concept of Man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute. If there is anyone we can help either professionally or personally, we invite them to contact us today.”

Metcalf called in to offer further comment. Metcalf said he was leaving as of Thursday. “If there’s ever been a time when the old saw about this isn’t the end, it’s a beginning, is true. It’s definitely now.” Metcalf had been at Wicked the last six years.

“The past six years I’ve been working with the best publicist who’s ever graced adult P.R.,” Metcalf said, indicating that he was talking about Joy King. Metcalf said King brought him under her wing initially “to do the daily grind of press releases and assist her however possible.” Metcalf said he mentored with the best. “Joy is an icon in this industry and will continue to be so whether she’s doing P.R., sales, production,” Metcalf continued. According to Metcalf, a lot of people don’t know that she co-wrote Dream Quest with Brad Armstrong which is one of Wicked’s classics. “She’s a true powerhouse in this industry. I really was blessed to learn from the best.”

As King moved into sales and other facets, Metcalf took over more responsibilities. Metcalf said the responsibilities branched out into many more areas not specifically that you would think as part of the publicist arsenal. “It’s a great company to work out and I’ve been blessed in every fashion,” Metcalf went on to say. Metcalf explained that he was continuing not only with the kind of P.R. that he had been doing at Wicked but would be returning to his roots prior to the business when he was a literary agent during the day and a porn reviewer at night. Metcalf said his company would be a full boutique agency and that he was re-locating to the east coast.

“If you’re going to work in publishing you got to be within a day’s drive of New York and Boston,” he said. Metcalf said his wife Amanda was also accepting a teaching gig on the east coast. Metcalf said his investors came through to back his company and within 48 hours his wife got her offer. Metcalf took that as an indication that it was time to move on.
