"Why don't I just hire a damn publicist?"
 
Nobody can sell the idea of your creation better than you. If you're a performer, athlete, entrepreneur, charity, small business owner, or entertainer of any kind, Media Whore contains vital information forged from over 10,000 hours of experience. The goal: for you to embrace a simple mindset of how to garner media attention for yourself and your creations: newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and the infinite possibilities available online -- at zero cost.
 
Written from the perspective of award winning writers, The Shehori Brothers, who years ago became publicists out of necessity to promote their own projects. Media Whore was created for you to easily understand and implement a straightforward approach to engaging the media and obtaining long-term results. Regardless of where you are on your path.
 
The media attention you'll generate will also assist you in areas you may not have even considered, such as government grants, corporate sponsorship, work visas, and new employment opportunities. From getting an agent, to landing the dream gig, to taking your business to the next level, you just have to ask for it. Media Whore simply shows you who and how to ask, what you're asking for, and when to ask for it.
 
“Just have to ask for it?" That sounds far too easy….
 
Yes it does.
