Biography Progress Report #33: Marketing and More Marketing
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 301
We are now one week out from the release of Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel! The book may be done and printed, but I’ve been incredibly busy the past couple of weeks getting my marketing ducks in a row.
In addition to the pieces at Immortal Ephemera and TCM’s Movie Morlocks, there are two more online interviews coming up soon. I did two recorded radio interviews last week which should be airing any time now, and spent over 3 hours being filmed for a segment produced by L.A.’s transportation authority. As it turns out, writing a book about an obscure Hollywood actress on the subway after having a baby is a pretty nice news hook. On top of all that, my buddy Chris Nichols over at Los Angeles Magazine was good enough to plug the book launch party in the November issue (see above).
Later on this week, I should have a major marketing announcement which I have had to keep under my hat for a few months now. Looking forward to finally share that good news!
