I'm not certain this is the right thread for this, but has anyone contacted www.hatrack.com to see if OSC will mention the book on the website?

Also, under "links" is a place to add a website to their site, but your site must have a link back to his site. Is this feasible?

I"ll be glad to send an email to the webmaster there, but I don't know if it's my place to do that, at least w/out checking first.

Calling Ohio contributors

Joe Wessels of Cincinnati Advanced Radio may have room on Friday morning. If he does, I'm going to ask him if there's anyway to have more than just me on - especially since I'm in Cleveland and some of you are much closer to Cincy. Can you stand up and let me be sure I know who you are and where you're from so I can let Joe know??

Shwebb, Pattithewicked and Ken Schneider - you are all in the vicinity right - one of you is in Columbus I think?

COOL! Jill, could you put that in the "Look, Ma, We're in the Media" thread, too? Lulu would like to see all our media appearances, and I'm linking to that thread from the SoS site so people can keep up with us.

Shwebb, I did ask OSC's assistant about linking us, but she didn't answer-- I'd love it if you'd ask the webmaster.

This morning I contacted the owner of http://www.dotcomwomen.com . Lata puts out a weekly newsletter. As she is in India, I didn't expect an answer until tomorrow or later. To my surprise, my newsletter came today and "Stories of Strength" has a nice big spot in it complete with links to the site... twice. The newsletter goes out to 4200+ members.

I haven't been talking much about contacting anybody. I'm just doing what I can do and hope that some of those places are interested... I have had a little positive feedback but nothing really substantial to date... until this. Lata is such a sweetie, I had to give her a plug for her site.

Logan Banner Update

I went to our local newspaper, The Logan Banner, yesterday and spoke to the EIC about running a piece on SoS. Not only did he say he would run the piece, but he took my picture with the book and said he'd like to do a front page feature on us.

He said he would have someone call me in the next couple of days to do an interview. The paper's a daily, so it shouldn't be too long after the interview that the piece gets put in the paper. I'll let you all know when they put it out!

I promise nothing, but I can now tell you, for 100% fact. Dr. Phil McGraw has read a SOS press release.

And how do you know that?
