I like to keep everyone up to speed with what I’m doing and this week I started something super exciting. As some of you know, I do publicity for a variety of clients, including a wonderful new author, Pamela Glasner. This week began her press campaign for the October release of her fantastic new novel, Finding Emmaus. I wanted to share a little about this remarkable novel, as well as show a few of you the basic format for a standard press release. What better way to do both? This press release went out yesterday; it is the first of many releases structured to build up excitement for the book’s release. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Here goes …
For immediate release
DARK HISTORIC FANTASY EXPOSES CONTEMPORARY PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY CONSPIRACY
August 3, 2009, Hartford, CT – Connecticut author, Pamela Glasner, who originally hails from New York City, announced today that the release of her first novel Finding Emmaus, book one of The Lodestarre Series, is scheduled for October 1, 2009.
“The only thing worse than having an incomprehensible, incurable illness is having an incomprehensible, incurable illness in isolation”
~Francis Nettleton, 1739 ~
The psychiatric community has confused Empathic personality traits with mental illness with tragic results, leading two Empaths – Francis Nettleton and Katherine Spencer – who live three hundred years apart, on personal journeys to learn the true nature of Empathy. Transcending time and death to right a centuries-old wrong, they inadvertently uncover a multi-billion dollar conspiracy in which millions of Americans are being misdiagnosed and drugged for no other reason than the enormous income they generate.
Finding Emmaus, book one of the Lodestarre series, is a complex, dark, historic fantasy about human frailties and courage. It is an intricate, meticulously researched, deeply disturbing, suspenseful tale of love and sacrifice, obsession and the abuse of power and the indisputable right of free will. It is a story with a cast of characters who will keep you guessing as to what they will do and what choices they will make as they weave in and out of the story and each other’s lives.
Ms. Glasner is managed by Publicist, Deborah Riley-Magnus. Finding Emmaus is published by Emerald Book Company, an imprint of Greenleaf Book Group. It is scheduled for release on October 1, 2009, and can be preordered now through Ms. Glasner’s blog at http://lodestarre.blogspot.com. Finding Emmaus will also be available for preorder in mid-September through Amazon.
For more information, or to schedule an interview or speaking engagement, please contact the author, Ms. Glasner at 860-533-9665.
Well, that’s what I did since last I blogged. Now your mission, should you choose to accept, is to write a press release for your own upcoming book release (real or imagined). This blog will not self destruct in thirty seconds, so you can revisit any time you like. (Yeah, I’m grinning.)
