I received an email from the MATC Times newspaper today wanting to know if they could do a story about the fact one of their students (me) wrote a book and had it published. Immediately I responded with yes. This is a great opportunity. Not only for me as an individual and student, but also for marketing my book.
Here is a copy of the email I received. I deleted his personal contact information.
Hello Ms Henderson,This is a quick e-mail to first introduce myself. I am Wayne Miller, Downtown Campus Editor for the Times. I’m typing this e-mail in response to an e-mail that the Times received about a book that you have written. We as a staff are interested in covering the story and I will personally be putting this story together for the rest of the staff and students to read. I will e-mail soon with questions that I might have. Please send back an e-mail at your earliest convenience if you are interested in the Times covering your story. Thank you for your time.– Wayne MillerDowntown Campus Editor
