I started using HARO to promote my books and Ukraine (war mostly). I never found a chance to say anything about my books to anyone or even mention them.
Once, I did submit info and stories from Ukrainian soldiers to an American media outlet. I have been using it for about 4 months.
I found out that, though I am subscribed to international queries, they are all American oriented. Maybe this is not surprising. But, most of the queries are like fast media – in allusion to fast food. I never heard of any query about current events or such. They are mostly beauty, some finance, holidays and sex.
