This week has been spent sending media kits and press releases to newspapers here in Amarillo, in Austin my adopted hometown, and San Antonio my birth hometown. ( I know, sounds silly.You would understand if you lived in Austin...awesome.).
We will see what comes of my contacts in possibly getting and interview or features spot for Piercing the Fold.
I am ending the week with working on distribution channels. Barnes and Nobles eventualy picks up my novel (could be a month or two) from Amazon, but I'm aiming to speed up the process. I am sending out a copy of Piercing the Fold and media kit today for them to consider carrying in stores. Amarillo has Hastings stores that carry books and music. I have been in contact with them, and they want me to send them a copy of the book and media kit to get it on their shelves! Austin...of course I called Book People; they are so good to indie Authors being and indie themselves. I am sending them a copy for review and media kit before they put it on their shelves! And, San Antonio, TWIG- another indie bookstore. I am sending them a copy and media kit for review for thier shelves.
I'm hoping Piercing the Fold is received well by all of these channels!
