Kimberlie Dykeman officially has “real estate” …inside bookstores, that is! As Midpoint Trade, one of New York’s finest book distributors, opens doors for Dykeman’s reserved space on shelves across the country, the author is hustling to make new fans of her new book Pure Soapbox. Driven to keep raising more funds for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Dykeman has taken the tireless challenge of personally calling stores throughout Texas to line up meet-n-greet signings, to put a face to the name behind her motivational writings. Three Hastings Entertainment bookstores closest to Austin immediately jumped to invite the TV personality to visit their stores, with several Barnes and Noble stores following suit, and more in the pipeline. Publicists Phenix & Phenix are in turn catering part of their publicity pitch for Pure Soapbox to emphasize the book’s fundraising capabilities, on top of its powerfully uplifting message for cancer survivors and their family members alike.
“October is Cancer Awareness Month and, as a fundraiser for LIVESTRONG™, this is a key month for me to really connect with folks first hand,” says Dykeman. “I’ve chosen to donate a portion of the proceeds from every single book to LIVESTRONG™ -so any effort I make to get my book into more hands, increases the impact I can personally have on this deadly, unforgiving disease. ”
“The fact that folks are flooding me with emails and calls to let me know they absolutely love the book …is icing on the cake!”
