Looking for PR Ideas For My Book

Bookmark and Share

I just Fed Ex’ed another set of revisions to my publisher. Two down, one more to go. Now I have a long author questionnaire that I need to fill out for the marketing department. Part of this involves writing a list of websites, blogs, and media outlets that might want to write about the book.
Since there are literally thousands and thousands of sites that we moms visit, this task feels a little daunting. I know what I know…but I don’t know what I don’t know.
So if anyone has suggestions, send them my way. Let me know what sites you like; what magazines you read; what TV shows you watch. I’ll add them to my list. I need all the help I can get!
In advance, thank you for your support.

All the major PR companies send me press releases, books, and review products after they’ve found me on Bacons Media.
It may be well worth it to open a media account with Bacons and then you’ll have the direct contact info for every single newspaper, magazine, web site, TV show and radio program in the country. You can even search based on topics and keywords, so you can contact media whose target audience are mothers and families.
Bacons is extremely diligent about getting the proper contact information from media outlets on a regular basis. It will save you a ton of time using their services.
