As an actor and storyteller, I have traveled to New York City for voice lessons and to visit friends on several occasions. But I never thought that these trips would get me any publicity.
In 2011, HARO alerted me that author Gina Greenlee was looking for women who have traveled to New York City on their own. I wrote about my most recent visit, when I met lots of interesting and helpful people and for the first time managed not to get lost.
I received an email from Gina letting me know that my story was included in Postcards and Pearls: Life Lessons from Solo Moments in New York. I received a signed copy of the book two weeks later. I never imagined a story of mine would be published in a book!
I used the occasion to obtain publicity in my hometown newspaper. Having my story published in a book is a source of pride and continuing PR for my acting and storytelling career!
