Sweet Sound PR takes on first fiction client

I am delighted to be doing the publicity for a fantastic writer, Yanina Stachura, who has self-published her first book: The Sword and The Passion.

Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 15.05.20The story is set in the Dark Ages, a time period that has fascinated Yanina since the first stories she wrote in childhood. This has led to extensive research, which delivers a high level of credibility to the story with all its characters, settings, customs, relationships, events and costumes.

Yanina is writing her second book, after the final edit of The Sword and the Passion went on sale via Amazon (Kindle and paperback) and got met by rave reviews.

Sweet Sound PR will be preparing The Sword and the Passion for its audience with:

  • An updated author website.
  • Social media profiles
  • A book trailer
  • LinkedIn Group participation.
  • Updated Amazon and other book site profiles.
  • Identification of reader profiles.
  • A book proposal showing how and where Yanina’s books will fit into current fiction market.

Having read this book cover-to-cover in one sitting, I am confident that a successful campaign will put Sweet Sound PR on the fiction publicity map to provide more talented writers with the springboard that their books deserve.

Farm Shops, Radio and Comedy

Each week I do an hour radio show on Sundays from 7.30pm-8.30pm – The Enhancing Your Chances Show. Then on Tuesday mornings I do the breakfast slot from 7.30am-9.30am – Sophie’s Laughing Alarm Clock Show. After Tuesday morning’s stint, I went to the Perranarworthal Farm Shop and Michelle Burley Hodge was there.

I’d done an interview with Michelle, aired on Sunday 17 March, for an article promised to the West Briton. Michelle showed me a copy of article, which I found I had missed in the 7 March West Briton. However, a copy was still knocking around in my room. Then I heard that a woman had gone to Michelle’s stall because she heard the radio interview! Wow.

Comedy

I’m organising a promoted comedy night for emerging talent in Falmouth starting on 15 May called the Falmouth Comedy Floor. There are already 2 active comedy promoters in the area, so luckily we all get on and work together. One new night is at Tyacks in Camborne (now I know there’s no u in Camborne).Here’s my set from the April one.

The Falmouth Comedy Floor is twinned with a night I launched with a team of 3 in December 2009, now in the Time Out Top Ten Open Mic Nights in London. Here’s the Freedom Fridge website with the Cornwall outpost page.

In a couple of weeks, am starting doing music PR on a freelance basis for Matchbox Recordings, so please see my vintage Music PR for a taste of what’s to come.
