Media Kit Tip:
In the Frugal Book Promoter: How to Do What Your Publisher Won't,
Carolyn Howard-Johnson advises that media kits be designed to make life
easy for reviewers, editors, producers, hosts. She uses a convenient
Contents page to help them find what they need, includes ready-to-print
material with permission to do so, and, of course, provides easily
accessible contact information including fellow experts in the several
fields she speaks on. She encourages fellow authors to download her kits
to use as templates.
Find at least one tip on writing, promotion or
tech on every page of this Web site.
