1. Publicity, advertising, and other promotional material will focus on our entire Sorrentino list--we'll be seeking career retrospective features in places like The New Yorker and interviews with Christopher Sorrentino on programs like Bookworm. We also hope to place an excerpt in Harper's and expect plenty of online blog and literary journal attention. 2. Additional trade marketing will include promotion at Book Expo America, ALA, and PLA + wholesaler advertising through Baker & Taylor. Plans also include a major promotional push at the Brooklyn Book Festival in 2010. 3. Together with Christopher Sorrentino, we will be arranging tribute events in the New York area.
