I got an email today from Michelle Dunn a lady who got her start in home based debt collections. Now she’s writing about the business.
She’s using a Cable Access TV show to promote her book and evidently a different author per week is using the show as well. Got a book you want to promote? Maybe you can get on TV.
The show is called The Book Authority and it’s a cable-access show in central CT reaching about 200,000 homes. The show covers writing, publishing and marketing for authors.
Here’s her press release on the topic. Are there any ideas here for you writers looking for more publicity?
‚ÄúThe Book Authority,‚Ä? is a program that looks for author‚Äôs whose work is important and airs weekly on channel 5 at 8:00 pm. Dunn taped her show on Tuesday October, 17, 2006 and it will air on Tuesday, October 24, 2006. The objective of the show is to educate its audience with personal examples, anecdotes and concrete details on writing, publishing and marketing books. ‚ÄúThe Book Authority‚Ä? features some of the best successful authors who go on to and who have had national success. New Hampshire author Dunn will discuss how she successfully obtained book deals, self published 6 books and successfully markets herself and her books. Dunn will explain steps you can take to obtain national publicity and create a ‚Äúbuzz‚Ä? about your books that can make you successful.
The host of the show is Brian Jud who specializes in Book Marketing. His website is http://www.bookmarketingworks.com/¬†
