Civilianized: A Young Veteran’s Memoir: Publicity Round UP

Here’s a round up of some of the publicity that my newest book: Civilianized: A Young Veteran’s Memoir, has received so far.

It’s a hard, sometimes difficult, tedious task, promoting and marketing a book, but it’s an important topic that I think has the opportunity to help a lot of veterans, so I’m going to keep trucking away…

Kate Tuttle, writing for the Boston Globe, wrote about Civilianized for her The Story Behind the Book column.  She interviewed me about the writing process of the book and how it came about.

Kelly Lynn Thomas, writing for the Rumpus, did a write up for her This Week in Books column. She discussed the importance of war memoirs and war writing.

Litpick (a website made of high school book reviewers) posted a nice Youtube video review of the book on their booktube page, and a quick six question interview appeared on their website.

David Abrams, author of Fobbit, and owner of the blog The Quivering Pen, was nice enough to allow me to do a guest post of his “My First Time Experience,” where I shared a story about getting my first book deal.

20SomethingReads had a nice review of Civilianized that was posted today. Check it out if you get a chance.

Also, a few NPR radio interviews, but I don’t have the clips to those yet.

More to come soon, and if you have any tips/ideas for ways to spread the word about the book and the issues it discusses, please shoot me an email.
