Allison sat in the box above the half way line. She had had two brandy and cokes forced on her by a large man called Rudi whose son played scrumhalf for the Lions and her head was spinning both from the alcohol and the occasion. Several things had surprised her: it was late evening on an autumn Highveld day and the dark had fallen quickly. The flood lights were on they were simply spectacular: the field and the stadium were light as a summer’s day. She could see the players clearly, even their facial expressions. The crowd was loud but not raucous and only slightly drunk as a group. There was an air of excitement that she found infectious, attractive even.

How to Approach the Media: PR Tips for Authors

By Tiistso Maloma

This is a follow up to this last post, ‘10 Ways South African independent authors can market their books.’

It has been sitting in my computer for over a year. I thought it would be of use to someone out there.

I have noted the points herein since marketing my first book ‘Forget The Business Plan Use This Short Model’.

People get infatuated with soliciting press for their products, in this case books, it eats up more of their time without any results. I was guilty of it. Sometimes I still am.

The media is interested in what will help them sell, i.e. information their audience would love to consume.

Eva Chauke’s book ‘Rather be a fool for God’ and ‘Debts ~ I will kill you before you kill me’ now sold on Amazon, iBookstore and many other online bookstores

These two books are centred around God and what He can do for you, whether you are a believer or a non-believer. The first book, titled “Rather Be a Fool for God”, focuses on the power and benefits of forgiveness, and how Gog made it clear in His Word that He forgives those who forgive others and does not forgive those who do not. The saying ‘Unwillingness to forgive is like drinking poison and expecting the next person to die’ encapsulates it.

In contrast, the second book, “Debts – I Will Kill You Before You Kill Me” the author gives insight on debts that are often the course of many a people’s downfalls, depression and shattered households. In the book, which also tells of God’s grace, expands on how our believe in God plays a role in getting the wisdom and a broader understanding why certain things happen in our lives, such as the financial blows that affect individuals, their children, and often if not addressed and worked upon, affects the generation thereof. If you need guidance and/or solutions on how to curb the cycle of poverty, through God’s plan, this book will at least get you in line with what one needs to do to turn their lives into fruitful and rewarding life.
