"Press Packet Update"

I called each of the intended 4 local newspapers for press packet mailing information. Only two were willing to accept a press packet, and the other two newspapers in my hometown only wanted the info for the calendar events. haha. Local author book signings are not big news. But to be listed in the city calendar is just as good for me!

Good thing I called before I finished printing everything out. Remember to get your mailing information first before you put your packets together. 🙂

Next up, flyers for the book signing. I’m going to be mailing out flyers to my large, large family and friends, and hoping to post the flyers at libraries and a few businesses. I’m thinking 100 is too many, but 50 might not be enough. I’ll contact the print shop for 75 copies. I’m sure I’ll have plenty left over, but just to be on the safe side.

And that concludes this installment of The Adventures in Publicity of a Newbie Author.

Until next time… 🙂 🙂
