A day-by-day history of U2, now in its second edition.

Interviewed on CNN Radio

By on November 11, 2008 in Promotion with 2 Comments

I think it was many months ago that I said something here on U2diary.com about how I assumed I would be doing a lot of the book promotion myself … and I have been doing a lot of it myself, mainly via things like the interview contest last month, spreading book-related news on Facebook and other social media sites, etc.

But Omnibus has also put two public relations persons on the job — one in the UK/Europe, and one here in North America. The PR folks are really doing some neat things, like setting up interviews for me and making sure the book will be reviewed/discussed in as many high-profile publications as possible. (Look for one soon in Q Magazine!)

One of the interviews I’ve done was with CNN Radio. It happened yesterday, but I have no idea how soon any of it will be on air. The reporter who interviewed me promised to send an MP3 of whatever gets used — I don’t know if I should expect something super short that would fit in their hourly news updates, or something a little longer that might fit in an entertainment-focused segment.

Regardless, just getting the book mentioned on CNN Radio is pretty cool, I say! The PR folks are doing some great work — thank you Beth, and thank you Ann!

  1. Dear Matt:

    I’d like to thank you once again for writing this amazing book. It arrived yesterday over here in Sao Paulo, and I went over the moon after realising my name was included on the acknowledgments’ list (on page 334). It was such an honour for me and I’ll always be proud of having contributed to your work. Thanks again.

    You’re welcome, Claudio — but really, thank YOU. Folks like you and everyone else that helped out made the book the best it could be. I appreciate it. 🙂
