- In a new twist, author gives away a first-class weekend in London to promote his book.
Author Marketing Experts, Inc., an innovative, full service book marketing and promotion firm, announces its new client, Richard Hains, a successful hedge fund manager, gold mine proprietor, and a man known around the UK to be one of the hottest bachelors in London. He is also author of Chameleon, a Wall Street thriller written by an insider who’s spent a good piece of his life managing an intensely confidential hedge fund.
But the centerpiece to Hains’ book campaign is the Win a Weekend with the Author in London’s Fast Lane. The contest includes an all-expense-paid roundtrip ticket to London from anywhere in the US, first-class accommodations, a personal driver to take the lucky recipient to any of London’s hottest tourist sites or shopping spots during the day, and evenings spent with one of London’s fast-moving bachelor authors at some of the finest restaurants and hottest clubs in London -- and perhaps a celebrity sighting or two.
To help push the contest, Hains has also done a slick, funky music video which can be viewed on YouTube or on Hains’ web site. The contest winner will be announced at Book Expo America in June 2007. Chameleon (Beaufort Books, June 2006, ISBN: 978-0825305108) has been recently optioned by the highly successful producers of the award-winning film, Hotel Rwanda. Hains has recently completed the final draft of the screenplay and the project is currently in pre-production.
“This project is one of the most unique we’ve ever launched. It’s edgy, fun and Richard’s passion for his book and his future is contagious. We’re thrilled to be a part of this campaign,” Author Marketing Experts’ CEO Penny Sansevieri says.
