Marketing with a local newspaper column and more
Lisa Lombard O'Reilly of Your Stories Written joins us for a conversation about personal history. Listen as we discuss:
- Lisa's experience writing her dad's life story book
- using Kindle Direct Publishing for cheap proof copies and supplying friends with print-on-demand books
- Lisa's monthly column on personal history for Coastal View, a local print publication
Lisa approached the publisher of Coastal View after attending a workshop given by Annie Payne, a colleague out of Australia. Annie gave expert advice on mastering your community and becoming the go-to personal historian.
Lisa also talked about being featured on a blog post by a woman with an historical press. Clairitage Press specializes in local history, with titles written by Karen Dustman. Read the article here or here.
