Kimberlie Dykeman will be the featured guest on Austin’s KOOP Radio 91.7 on July 9th from 6-7pm. “Writing on the Air” Host Lee Davis will interview the newly published author about the creative process that went into writing PURE SOAPBOX …a cleansing jolt of perspective, motivation, and humor. PURE SOAPBOX has earned national distribution, is published by Wiggy Press, an imprint of Dalton Publishing, and represented by Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists.
Fox loves Kimberlie Dykeman! Or so it would appear…as Austin’s sister station, San Antonio’s KABB-TV FOX 29, will feature the new author as their special guest on the morning newshow July 1, the day before Dykeman appears on Fox 7 Austin. Just days after her long-awaited book, Pure Soapbox, hit the shelves, the Soapbox Queen is already hitting the regional TV and radio circuit to talk about the one-of-a-kind book release event and how her trademark concept, SOAPBOX™, motivates with a swift kick in the pants and stimulates real perspective change in people. The PURE SOAPBOX website, launched in March offering readers a weekly blog which gives a sneak-preview of the book and a way for audiences to share the good word! PURE SOAPBOX has earned national distribution, is published by Wiggy Press, an imprint of Dalton Publishing, and soon-to-be-represented by Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists.
Dalton Publishing inked a national deal with Midpoint Trade Books, a national book distributor in New York. Dalton founder Deltina Hay says the Austin-based publishing company’s strong presence at this year’s world-renowned BEA Book Conference in L.A. earned the nod of one of New York’s hardest working distributors. For over a dozen years, Midpoint has focused its talent and energy on helping independent publishers build successful publishing programs in the trade marketplace.
What does this mean for Kimberlie Dykeman and Pure Soapbox, the first title launched under Dalton’s new imprint, Wiggy Press? A vastly-reputable source will now pitch and supply Pure Soapbox to the national chain bookstores and beyond, as well as provide much more exposure to the overall national publishing world market, including schools and libraries. This, combined with the efforts of KD herself, the publisher, and soon-to-be signed publicity firm, will be the powerful push essential to garner national recognition across broad consumer demographics.
PURE SOAPBOX launches 6.25.08. Available where books are sold!

I just signed on as a new Grassroots Fundraiser for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, choosing LIVESTRONG™ to be the sole beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds from all book sales of Pure Soapbox. Having been both intimately affected by cancer and seen friends also go through the trauma of this deadly disease, I view this as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to directly help this world-renowned charity and further inspire the global community to donate to the fight against cancer. Additionally, my websites, including PureSoapbox.com, KimberlieDykeman.wordpress.com , will have a direct link to my own LIVESTRONG™ Fundraising URL so visitors can freely post their own donations online, both in honor and anonymously.
