If it’s Friday, this must be Omaha
I'm getting excited about the mini-book tour I'll be doing in the first two weeks of August. The stars are aligning: it's the first two weeks of the fall pledge season on public television, when stations will begin carrying the Being Strategic TV show; the paperback version of Being Strategic is being released on August 3rd; and I'm going to be in New York, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Los Angeles and Omaha during those two weeks, fulfilling a combination of work and personal commitments: so – voila! Book tour.
Barbara, our smart, thoughtful, astonishingly well-connected publicist, and her group at CHC, are speaking to the local press in each of those cities, focusing on the two-fer of the book and the TV show (and in Omaha, the three-fer of book, show and home-town-girl…I grew up there). The DPTV team, led by Jamie Westrick, is marketing the show to the cities, and letting them know about the added lift of the book launch and me being there in person.
If any of you, faithful readers, would like me to do anything on your blog around then, I'd be happy to do that, too (lots of plane time). What the hell — let's make it a virtual tour also!
And, if any of you have other ideas or publicity suggestions for any of those stops, please share them…
