As any author will tell you, writing a book is one thing, but if you want it to sell, people need to know the book exists. Publishers do what they can to get the word out, but authors must do their part as well.
My efforts in this area are beginning to pay off, with two magazine pieces currently on the stands. The first is a mention of The Future was FAB: The Art of Mike Trim in CFQ Magazine, which I mentioned on www.miketrimart.com last month. Here's the cover if you're trying to find it.
I had a devil of time locating a copy; I finally found one at Barnes & Noble, after trying two other stores that were already sold out. CFQ is a great magazine, and many thanks go to editor Jeff Bond for including us in this issue. To order it online, stop by their website at http://www.cfq.com.
Also on newsstands now is ImagineFX issue #5, the magazine of Fantasy & Sci-Fi Digital Art. This is a very slick, all color British magazine devoted entirely to the creation of digital SF&F art. Definitely recommended, even if you aren't an artist yourself because of all the gorgeous color paintings. Here's the cover for the issue that contains a nice article on Mike and the book in their news section.
Many thanks to editor Rob Carney and writer Ed Ricketts for covering the book.
In July, the September issue of Toy Shop Magazine will include an article on Mike's designs that have been released as toys and model kits. This issue will be distributed for free at the San Diego Comic Con, so stop by the Comics Buyer's Guide/F&W Publications booth on your way to see me in booth #506, signing copies of the book.
In September, Sci-Fi & Fantasy Modeller 'Bookazine" issue #3 will feature a 10 page interview with Mike Trim as well as a review of the book. More info on these when they hit the streets.
If you see any coverage of The Future was FAB: The Art of Mike Trim in magazines or newspapers, please drop me a line at email@example.com so that I can include it here.
