C.D. (skymama) | 2 comments Excuse my ignorance, but what is a press release? What does it involve? Can some one explain it or point me to a good resource? Has anyone here done one for a book?

Here is an example of a press release for an author's participation in a book group: http://www.12booksgroup.com/press-3/p...

Eric (e_gerds) | 10 comments Also if you just Google "press release distribution" you will find many site where you can just upload your press release.

Also remember that press releases are a slow method of marketing. You send it out, it will be picked up weeks later and finally posted on someone website weeks after that.
