5 ways to get publicity with Steve Harrison!

This is a great video. I do quite a bit of freelance work for my local newspaper and make use of seasonal hooks to get my articles published. Recently, I re-published an article about the gifting of PSH George to HRH Queen Elizabeth II as a means of promoting the RCMP Musical Ride and their auction. Visit I scooped the competing newspaper and was awarded the contract to cover the event. This in turn has sparked 3 new paid articles. It not only boosts my on-line “face” but I can see a direct spike in sales of my equine series of books after a particularly interesting article is published on-line with my name on it. It goes hand-in-hand with my use of tags on my blog and Amazon book sellers site.

Hope all my fellow writer’s subscribe and watch Steve’s blog. Just follow this link.
