So, how does one go about hiring a publicist?
The last two weeks have been an interesting parlay into all the hard work we’ve done….and I don’t wanna screw it up. I truly don’t. I’ve had interviews coming at me from left and right and I love it! I love being able to get my story out. But, I’m not sure how you should do it properly, so that I don’t stumble, fumble up words, sound robotic when I answer the same question again and again. How does one handle attention?
I’ve always shared on this blog this world of mine, this life of a male knitter, who knit up teddy bears just to buy groceries, then turned it into a life long dream of having a home. And this is where we are. I’m a pinch shy of being a little bit famous. And to be truthful? I don’t want to screw it up.
To be absolutely honest, I’m a little nervous. Not scared. I’ve stared down enough madness in life to not be scared. Just nervous. I want to do this right. The world is now taking a closer look at me….and I just want to do right by all of us.
I’ve cataloged my life’s ups and downs with this blog since my very first post. This is a wonderfully high up!…..and I don’t want to see it crash down without knowing what I’m doing.
So, how does one proceed? Whom do you call? And what is their going rate anyway? (I had to laugh when I wrote that. Not sure why, but laughed, nonetheless).
300 books arrive tomorrow in multiple boxes. Can’t wait to take a picture. We’re up to 400 copies sold of “Will Knit For Food.” And I’m itching to push 100 more.100 more copies and I’m good for a year and that would be amazing.
I’m having to move again. But, more about that on my next post tomorrow.
This is the story of how I knit my way out of homelessness. To order an autographed copy of “Will Knit For Food” click here, or for a Limited Edition personalized, signed paperback copy with t-shirt, click here.
