I googled my head off concerning book press releases and fortunately my one was simple to do.
There were plenty of people to pay for their expert press release skills – from 200 smackers up to 800 buckaroonis (now this does include their distribution list so they send it off to all their contacts). The big El-Cheapo that I am, armed with my can-do attitude, I wanted to do it myself.
I enjoyed wasting many hours searching press release templates, newspaper editors, press release contacts and radio stations.
I’ve knocked this press release up and sent it to all my local newspapers. I will fling it off to radio stations tomorrow. I didn’t include all the boring contact details, but you get the gist.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ~
FUNNY AUSTRALIAN LETTERBOXES
Author MJ Cope, has published her latest book, Funny Australian Letterboxes. Taking a break from raising six kids and publishing an offbeat thriller, THE ENTERPRISE, she looked for something fun to do:

Great conversation starter, coffee table book and an entertaining present for the hard-to-buy-for: (58 pages rrp $12.28) and ebook (rrp $2.99).
These amusing snapshots of unusual Australian letterboxes are comically captioned and available from Amazon.
