New York, NY (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
An old hand at television, Morrow Wilson, whose new novel, David Sunshine, is dedicated to his late wife Rue McClanahan, has chosen to ignore the standard literary procedure in promoting his book and try something new.
“I like to go straight to my readers,” he said, “and, rather than depend on book reviews in book publications, I have been doing a lot of interviews instead – X Zone Radio, Bloomberg Radio, Satellite and Internet stuff, too. YouTube and the like. Earlier this month I was on a 50-station coast-to-coast hook-up on AM radio. In fact, I was even offered my own radio show. Go figure…”
Fresh from recent readings and book-signings at an Alumni Luncheon at Columbia University as well as The Players, this country’s oldest and most prestigious theatrical and literary social club, Morrow Wilson discussed his unorthodox approach to selling his comedy about the television industry of the 1960s.
"I love reading the book to a live audience and I love signing it for interested readers,” says Morrow Wilson, “but a writer needs reviews. And at last I’m getting them.”
Appropriately enough, his reviews have come unsolicited from those very readers he is trying to reach directly.
Here is a selection of readers’ responses to David Sunshine - Television in the days of “Mad Men:”
“Great novel, one that seems to feature more revelations than any nonfiction book could. Deserves to be read, considered, and then read again.” -- Gary Rhodes
“Delightful and full of truth.” -- Eliot Fremont-Smith
“Exactly the way it was.” -- Henry Morrison
