ROCKIN' in the gift guides
Today Autoweek magazine chose ROCKIN' as one of their 2006 Holiday gift recommendations (as shown in the photo). Wonderful news, of course. It's great that the automotive world is learning about the book as quickly as the music world.
What we're also seeing is that the San Francisco Chronicle's review in their gift guide--which also showcased ROCKIN' as one of the year's best--has now been syndicated all across the country to local and regional newspapers. You can tell by doing the Google every morning.
This is an exciting time to be an author, with major publicity for ROCKIN' yet to come. But it's also just as pleasing to realize that this book has major legs--that events surrounding the book are already being set for January and February, beyond the holiday season. For instance, I'll be speaking at the prestigious San Francisco Rod, Custom and Motorcycle Show's hall-of-fame luncheon, and signing books at the DuPont booth over three days. That's in mid-January, and it's one of the first highlights of the 2007 automotive year.
