Book Marketing, PR Meetings in NYC, and Toronto

I just got back from meeting with Random House (American publisher, May 4) in New York City, and Penguin Books (Canadian publisher, Mar 28) in Toronto. We were discussing ideas for upcoming book release of The One-Week Job Project, and how best to market it. P1110154I invited my mom, sister, and baby niece to come along too. We stayed a few minutes from Time Square, and The Empire State Building. We had a wonderful time (yes, wonderful) visiting the different areas of Manhattan on a double decker tour bus, learning many tidbits about the city we would have never known. It was a great way to see the city, and made me want to spend a day as a tourist in my own city of Vancouver. We went to see a couple of Broadway shows, The Lion King, which was alright, and Wicked, which was absolutely incredible!

I was pleased with how the book meetings went. To be honest, I think back to when The One Week Job Project was just an idea, and then fast forward to today when I'm sitting in boardrooms with two major publishers discussing how best to market the book - it seems surreal.

It's been very exciting to see things come together, and I can't wait for the books release this spring - May 4th in the US, and March 28 in Canada.

If you have any ideas/suggestions to market the book, I'd love to hear 'em! Let me know in the comment section, or send me an email!
