Charlotte's Kim Wright, author of "Love in Mid Air," has discovered it's a new world in book promotion these days. With newspaper reviews dying out and author tours on the wane, writers often find that if they want to promote their books, they've got to do it themselves.
And so Wright is. Set in Charlotte, her debut novel tells the story of a woman struggling to decide whether to stay in a safe but loveless marriage. With the help of a film director friend, she has just completed a trailer for the book.
"All my friends pitched in sort of like when Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland would say 'Let's put on a show in the barn,'" she told me in an email. Check it out. It's a great introduction to an engaging novel.
