John Patrick Lowrie’s book Dancing with Eternity debuted back in September of 2011 and has seen a nice climb up the ratings ladder all over the internet including Amazon.com. Dancing with Eternity won it’s first award yesterday by ForeWord Reviews. ForeWord Reviews specializes in independently published books.
Seeing as this contest involved every category as opposed to only the ‘Science Fiction’ category, John should be really proud to be recognized and awarded for his hard work. Personally, it has been a pleasure working with John and his wife Ellen Mclain this past year and I look forward to another fruitful year with the two of them!

Being one of the first in the industry to take on the new titles ”Social Media Publicist”/”New Media Publicist“. I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again. “Chris, how exactly can someone benefit from the type of work you do?”
Before answering that, I’d like to pose some questions of my own.
Whether you’re an Actor doing film work, voice work, commercials, web series etc.. or you’re an Author trying to let people know about your new, possibly self published book, you most likely want people to know you’re out there. So to answer the initial question of how to benefit from what I do you have to see the value in letting people know you’re out there.
In traditional publicist work you may pay $500-1500+(depending on the publicists pay scale) for a month of getting some radio spots, possibly a magazine reference or newspaper reference all with almost no web exposure what so ever. Why is this you may ask? Because it is a full time job to do that kind of work in traditional PR and an entire other full time job to do that kind of work on the web.
With the learning curve of educated ones self on all the different social media tools available it’s a wonder that any artist has time to actually practice what they love, their art. So to decide if you could use my services, the best thing to do is figure out if you have time to build your Twitter following, Facebook following, YouTube subscribers, Design/Maintain a website, respond/filter fan emails, find people to interview you and practice what you love, your craft :)
