Pounding the pavement works

Writers are not salespersons by nature. But sometimes, you have to force yourself out of your cocoon and make some calls. That’s what I did in early May, a two-day whirlwind tour of the Black Hills, where I called on motorcycle dealers in the area and presented them with copies of Ride the Black Hills.

Persistence does pay off, even if you feel weird about pushing yourself on others. As a result of my little jaunt, Ride the Black Hills is now available at J&L Harley Davidson in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Indian Motorcycle Sturgis.

So, if you’re heading toward the big Sturgis rally along I-90, or are already in Sturgis and wondering where in the heck the good routes are, stop in at one of these places and pick up a copy of Ride the Black Hills! And tell them I said, “Hi!”

Ride the Black Hills to be reviewed by Women Riders Now

I just received an email from Genevieve Schmitt, the editor of Women Riders Now, one of the most influential online motorcycle publications in the U.S. Ride the Black Hills will be reviewed in an upcoming issue of WRN, just ahead of the annual Sturgis rally.

Genevieve will also be awarding copies of Ride the Black Hills at the upcoming Revved-Up Women’s Texas Motorcycle Expo April 28-30 in San Antonio.

Thanks, Genevieve!
