Happy May Day, Dresden Files Fans!
I just wanted to send out a quick update, as we accomplished a few
more important tasks in the last 24 hours.
First, I've posted some simple flyers that you can print out, take to
your local bookstore/library/comic & game store/laundromat/etc. and
ask if the management will let you post them. These are -very- basic,
so if someone out there has the layout skills in Word and wants to
make them fancier for us... please jump right in!
Second, we now have a press release! It's been posted on the Save
Harry Dresden website, and has been sent out this afternoon to a
variety of entertainment news people and scifi/fantasy websites,
including E!, TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, SCIFI Wire, and a number
of newspapers around the country.
Many thanks to ANITA KARVE, who wrote the bulk of the press release,
formatted it, and offered suggestions on the final draft; and to
STEVEN GAHM, who went above and beyond the call of duty, digging up a
long list of appropriate contacts in the media where the release could
And third, we now have contact information for most of the producers
of the Dresden Files available on the website. Once you've written
snailmail to Mr. Stern and Ms. Hammer, if you've got some
letter-writing energy left over, would you consider writing one or
more of the show's producers and letting them know how much you
appreciate their role in making the Dresden Files happen? And asking
them to keep the show on the air for another season?
EXPANDING THE CAMPAIGN
Our current volunteer needs:
1. Other places to send the press release. If you're aware of any
fan organizations that have newsletters, or websites that publish
industry news, and you think that a story about the campaign to get
the Dresden Files renewed would be appropriate for them, would you
please let me know?
Timeliness is a big factor with press releases -- one of the reason I
made a big push to send it out to as many appropriate places as
possible today -- so the sooner the better.
2. Is there anyone who is a moderator/editor at www.tv.com? I tried,
but was unable to figure out how to post or submit the press release
there. Getting even a short blurb about the campaign up there on the
Dresden Files page would be great publicity, so if you can help with
this, please contact me at bonnielala@...
Thanks again for all your support and your efforts to keep The Dresden
Files on the air for a second season!
