This March, Medallion Press is overwhelmed with excitement as we find new ways of reaching out to our readers and share in the joy of the award season with many of our authors.
With the popularity of MP3 players, downloadable music, and internet radio, Medallion Press will be expanding our digital presence with a new internet radio show, Medallion Press Radio (MPR)! On March 19th, 2008 at 2:00pm CST, join our host and PR Assistant, Paul Ohlson, for our new monthly half hour radio show. Each Medallion Press Radio show will give listeners insights into your favorite Medallion authors, news updates, monthly editor tips, and even information on how to become a Medallion Press Insider. This month, we will feature an interview with our very own President and CEO, Helen A. Rosburg, author of Call of the Trumpet, The Dream Thief, By Honor Bound, and Ellie and the Elven King, along with Scotland native, Davie Henderson, who will speak about his new science-fiction novel, Tomorrow’s World. Then join us on the third Wednesday of every month at 2:00pm CST for a new episode of Medallion Press Radio! There are three easy ways to access our show:
1. Visit www.medallionpress.com and look for the Medallion Press Radio (MPR) Player.
