    Absolute Writer Sport Author "Press Releases"

    Not to be self-serving, or anything like that but I was wondering if we could do a "one hand washes the other " kind of thing on Absolute Write. For example, I have written a book that is currently available for presales on

    Last year, when my friend Weems Westfeldt published Brilliant Skiing, I queried Aspen Magazine about writing a review. The article opened the door to assignments with many other publications, which eventually resulted in a publishing contract.

    I'm thinking that if those of us who have written sport and fitness books post them here, we can be supplying story ideas for other writers.

    Lisa, do you think Aspen Magazine would be a good addition to the Markets & Guidelines sticky? They sound like a decent pub to work with. Would you recommend them, and if so, do you have any insights which might help other writers break in?
