This FREE Community Event is perfect for children who can’t wait in long lines, and are very afraid of the big fella in the bright red suit! Families of children with autism spectrum disorders, challenging behaviors and other disabilities will find this event an especially enjoyable experience vs. the local mall Santa alternative.
Apple cider, cookies, crafts, holiday movies and the ACI Learning Center play area will help keep your child busy until it’s time for their optional photo with Santa. Each family will receive one complimentary 4” x 6” photo of their child with Santa!
I was interviewed about how I market my indie paperbacks and ebooks by Bookworks recently.
Here’s an excerpt, followed by a link to the entire article. Worth a look! –Alex Greenwood
Like the old Woody Allen quote: “if you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything innovative,” these writers are still in process. One such up-and-comer is J. Alexander Greenwood, author of John Pilate Mystery Series: Pilate’s Cross, Pilate’s Key and Pilate’s Ghost and Kickstarter Success Secrets: How I Crowdfunded My Last Novel.
When not heading up AlexanderG Public Relations in Kansas City, Missouri with oversight in social media and content marketing for his clients, Greenwood moonlights as an indie author of mystery novels. And while not disputing the effectiveness of social media marketing per se, he also employs traditional marketing techniques with a twist to achieve his goal.
“After using every social media platform available to promote my indie titles, I went old school: I ingratiated myself with the fantastic staff at the Kansas City Public Library System. They have a tough policy for accepting indie books, but I submitted mine and simultaneously pitched the idea of creating a public lecture on why I took the self-publishing route,” said Greenwood.
Modern folk music explosion is a new concept from New York City based singer-songwriter Dan Coyle. Coyle brings his show to Kansas City on December 7th at Czar Bar in Kansas City. Doors open at 9 p.m., with a 9:30 p.m. show time.
“Modern folk music explosion is an idea that I had to help bring folk music into the spotlight in its current incarnation. The music I’m talking about is a little quirky with a splash of pop, but also includes your more traditional storytelling and love ballads,” Coyle explained.
Coyle will also play dates in Warrensburg and Lawrence while he’s in the area. His full tour schedule can be found at his website http://dancoyle.com.
“I’ve always enjoyed playing Kansas City, from the two years I did Riverfest, to my CD release at the Record Bar, and to my last performance at Czar Bar. The people are so supportive and friendly; I was excited when Czar Bar invited me back to headline,” added Coyle.
Local support for the night will be provided by John Keck and Dane Davenport. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased on Czar Bar’s website http://www.czarkc.com/event/377967-dan-coyle-kansas-city/.
Fans who visit Coyle’s Shows page on his website will find a link to get a free “tour bundle.” All they have to do is fill out a simple form and pick up their bundle at the show.
“The tour bundles are a way for me to put some unique, limited edition merchandise in the hands of people who come out to the shows. They can choose from three gifts, and theer are photos of each on my website,” said Coyle.
Czar Bar is located at 1531 Grand Blvd. Kansas City, MO, 64108 and their phone number is (816) 421-0300.
