Looking for a few good people

Women Warriors comes out on February 26. From your perspective, that probably sounds like I still have a lot of time to get ready. From my perspective, it feels like next week.

One of the hard truths of publishing is that no one can buy a book she doesn’t know exists. I’m doing everything I can to be sure that people know about Women Warriors. But my reach only goes so far. I’m hoping some of you are willing to help me spread the word to people you think would be interested: on social media and in real life. And I want to make it as easy for you as possible.

If you’re interested in being on my “launch team,” let me know. I will send you a few emails during the weeks around the book launch with things you can share and some inside peeks into the process. I won’t bombard you—quite frankly, I won’t have time. I won’t share your email, ever. (That’s true for this newsletter too. Cross my heart.)

Many thanks.

Next week, we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming here on the Margins. I’m thinking a peek at 1948.

(1) My apologies to those of you who already received this request in my newsletter on December 5. (2) And many thanks to those of you who already said yes.  I don’t usually duplicate material from the newsletter on the blog, or vice versa. This is one of the few times when I want to be sure I reach everyone who reads my stuff.

(2) You didn’t know I have a newsletter? That’s probably because I do a lousy job of promoting it. Every two weeks, I send out a newsletter in which I talk about the process of writing and thinking about history–or at least my process.  History is not a one size fits all proposition).  I share news when I have it and give you a peek into the to-be-read shelves. What I don’t do in the newsletter is share the kind of historical stories I tell here on the margins.

    Hi Pamela,
    I am interested in being on your launch team for Women Warriors.
    I hope I can be of assistance, and I expect I will learn, too.
