Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2006
Only a few short months after having his graphic novel featured at the 2005 American Music Awards, Kincardine, Ontario area writer and publisher Mike Gagnon is being acknowledged by the organizers of the 2006 Academy Awards for another one of his books.
After earning a huge reputation among the stars in the entertainment industry by having his graphic novel “Monkeys & Midgets” included at one of four graphic novels given away to celebrities at the American Music Awards on November 22nd 2005 Mike Gagnon will now also be acknowledged in a big way by organizers associated with the 2006 Academy Awards, or “Oscars”.
In this instance Gagnon’s work is being recognized for his non-fiction book titled “How to Get Published the Open Book Press Way”, which is meant as a tool for would-be writers and also a promotional vehicle for the publishing company he co-owns with New Jersey native Chris Campanozzi, Open Book press.
The book itself will be handed out by event organizers to over 100 celebrities and movers and shakers in the entertainment industry. The books will be handed out at the “Night of 100 Stars Oscar Gala”, the official viewing party for the 78th Annual Academy Awards. The books are a part of the celebrity gift bags being distributed by event organizer Hollywood Connection. With the number of celebrities known to have stories to tell in print it’s safe to say that Gagnon’s company will soon be garnering a lot of attention from the powerful people of Hollywood.
Both books, Monkeys and Midgets (ISBN: 0-9735716-1-6) and How to Get Published the Open Book Press Way (ISBN: 0-9735716-4-0), are available now at finer books stores, online at Amazon.com or directly from the publisher at http://www.openbookpress.com.
