"When you decide that you're ready to start dealing direct with radio stations, get Alex Carroll's program. His top radio show database, tapes of dealing with radio producers, and examples of actual talk shows will help you to become a radio talk show star." - John Kremer
I see dozens of news releases every day. Few make the grade. Most are uninteresting, unnews-worthy, and book-focused. What does it take to sell books with a good news release? In a 15-minute phone call, I can give you feedback on your news release to help you make it one that sells books. - John Kremer
