You may want to give Clark Howard a copy along with your cover letter. Clark is a very pro military guy. Listened to him for years while I was in Atlanta and TIVO his show from time to time now. Last time I checked, he is a CPT in the GA State Militia. I think one of his TV shows this year was his appearance at Ft Benning he was in Uniform... Anyway Clark is a straight up guy and I think he'd be willing to give you some publicity either on the air or on his website.

Hi Nords,
AF (or Navy or Marine or Army) Times is a big source of military news for me and they are sold on every base every week. They have an "off duty" section in the back that reviews books and talks about military finance. Seems like a perfect fit.
Keep in mind that the local AFRTS affiliates now have their own morning shows. You can deal directly with the station manager if HQ AFRTS doesn't want to play. Since they are the only game in town, that is what is blaring through every workcenter on every overseas base (I can vouch for Iceland, Italy, Germany, Iraq...).

Bright-Eyed, I'm hoping that the publisher gets me all the business I can handle. What you describe sounds a lot like military public relations (I know, oxymoronic) only with more organization.

Thanks, everyone, for all the feedback on Clark Howard and AFRTS. I noticed the uniform on his website but I never would've picked up on the strength of his military audience. And apparently AFRTS has gotten a whole, whole lot better in the last 25 years since I've watched it.

Not only them, but wait until you see what the TAP staff has waiting for you. Impact Publications is hoping for great things from bulk sales of the pocket guides.

Well, gosh, I have an image to project protect!

I'm going to be wearing my new surfing shorts ("black shorts" if you know what that means on the North Shore) and my favorite Tazmanian Devil surfing t-shirt with my best Longs $3.98 rubbah slippahs (the expensive ones with the pebbled uppers).

Crap, the publisher is probably going to want a photo. I'll send him this one:

Good - as I was writing it I was thinking - gosh this sounds an awful lot like WORK - why'd he want to do that!

I'm sure if you take all your calls or do a few youtube vids from the beach or on your surfboard you'll have people calling you and buying your book!
