Social Networking as an Additional Tool

Mike Volkin is the author of our very successful Basic Training book series. He is always looking for new and beneficial ways to reach his target audience, those interested in the military or about to enter basic training. He works endlessly managing his website, creating content for, and hosting a popular Blog Talk Radio Show on basic training, and does a great job. His newest effort is a social network titled Military Basic Training. It is a great portal for anyone wanting to learn how to prepare for boot camp. The site includes audio links, photos, video demonstrations, a forum, and much more. These are all elements that your website should have anyway, so check out some social networking options to see if one of them might fit your needs, or work into your existing website.

Report a Deal on Publishers Marketplace

There is a nice daily newsletter called Publishers Lunch from Publisher Marketplace. On their website they have a Report a Deal page where you can submit information on recent rights deals your publishing company has made such as paperback rights, foreign rights, etc. We started submitting our recent rights deals, Playing with the Enemy in Chinese and Hunt and Kill and Steel Boat, Iron Hearts in German, for possible inclusion in their newsletter. They mentioned our U-505 book deals in a newsletter this week and just today we received an inquiry about rights for one of the titles in South America. Be sure to check this newsletter out and submit information whenever possible.
