A pressing release for the book signing

Here's a look at the press release I sent out for next Wednesday's author appearance; feel free to send it to your own newspaper, radio station, or TV station, and by your own I mean if you own it, I'm free for interviews. If you own several, I'm free for syndication. And if you run a blog that features writers, I'm just free. The books aren't free ... but they're cheap, just like me.





A husband and wife writing team are coming to the Noble County Public Library’s main branch in Albion this November, to help introduce their newest book.

Mark R. Hunter and Emily Hunter will be at the library in Albion Wednesday, November 16, from 3-7 p.m. They spent almost two years roaming Indiana to produce Hoosier Hysterical: How the West Became the Midwest Without Moving at All. Written to celebrate Indiana’s bicentennial, the tongue-in-cheek book pokes fun at Hoosier History and trivia.

Although Mark did most of the writing and got his name on the cover, he insists his wife did most of the work: Emily designed the cover, formatted and edited the book, traveled around the state with him on research missions, then edited and added photos they took along the way.

Despite all the research, the Hunters say the book is mainly for fun or, as they put it in the forward, “So sit back and learn something fun about history. When you’re done, read this book.”

The pair previously collaborated on two local history books: Images of America: Albion and Noble County, and Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights: A Century or So With the Albion Fire Department. They also put together a collection of Mark’s humor columns, Slightly Off the Mark. Mark is also a humor columnist and the author of three novels: Storm Chaser, The Notorious Ian Grant, and The No-Campfire Girls, as well as the story collection Storm Chaser Shorts. All of their printed works will be available at the appearance.

Hoosier Hysterical and all the Hunters’ books can be found at http://markrhunter.com/, and on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Mark-R-Hunter/e/B0058CL6OO.

Newsletter Live Tomorrow

Tomorrow afternoon we’re going to send out our very first newsletter, which will be way better than the last one. It’s got that major announcement I mentioned, a little humor, a mention of the upcoming author appearance (a second one’s pending, too), and—as promised—a cute dog photo.

So just hop on over to www.markrhunter.com and go to the bottom of the main page, type in your e-mail address (which will absolutely not be shared), and hit subscribe! Well, and then you’ll have a confirmation e-mail. Some people who filled out the signup sheet for the newsletter months ago are just now getting that, because I got lazy … I sure hope they remember who I am.

I’m still floundering my way through this whole self-promotion thing. Eventually the newsletter might also be linked on Facebook or my blog, but I’ve found a lot of people just aren’t seeing things on social media … there’s just too much stuff flying by us, these days.

Social media? Doesn't bother me, dude.
