Lions, Tigers and Bees Oh My! The Ardynn Project Launches Their Own Yellow Brick Way
This morning my nerves are completely shot. I am waiting for a bevy of reviews to come in throughout the day as we have less than 22 hours before Bruno’s Buzzing Adventure goes on sale. What I love about The Ardynn Project and this whole business transparency business is that I have untold numbers to share my frustrations, nervousness and tribulations with. I honestly need to cut out the coffee today though, because the caffeine just adds to the anxiousness I am already feeling.
Even though we are all completely swamped with tomorrow’s launch I wanted to remind each of you that when you have an idea or become inspired, go with it and Just Ask. The reason I bring this up, is that last week while planning the various promotional mediums and event strategies for Bruno’s Buzzing Adventure, I started contacting Book Stores to hold readings and eSignings at. I also thought that I should look at untraditional places to hold them at and since it will be available in the iBook Store k, why not approach Apple about an event. Now, I have absolutely no contacst at Apple, let alone a way to get through to the Event Coordinator for their flagship store on Fifth Evenue in Manhattan.
I simply went to Apple.com and clicked through to the Retail Store Locater page for direct store contact information.I wasn’t sure if this was the right place to call or if I should be dealing with Apple, Inc. But why not try the location direct and see what happens? So I called the main number and asked ofr whom ever handles events and was transferred to the VM of Nicky Stanard. I proceeded to leave a detailed message and with in 10 minutes Nicky was returning my call.a very nice discussion, he was intrigued enough about the idea of having a Children’s Book Reading and eSigning that he had me forward details and a copy of the eBook to him for review with his team. Granted after waiting on pins and needles for a couple of days I did receive the following email.
