Dalton Publishing Earns National Distribution for Kimberlie Dykeman’s PURE SOAPBOX

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! 

Kimberlie Dykeman Inks LIVESTRONG as Beneficiary of Pure Soapbox Book Sales

Kimberlie Dykeman 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, Dykeman views 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, Dykeman’s websites, including www.puresoapbox.com, www.kimberliedykeman.wordpress.com will have a direct link to her own LIVESTRONG™ Fundraising URL so visitors can freely post their own donations online, both in honor and anonymously.

Official Book Release and Signing of Kimberlie Dykeman’s PURE SOAPBOX

A personal note from Kimberlie Dykeman… 

Get on your SOAPBOX, folks! The official release is on the books, as is the signing party of long-anticipated book, Pure Soapbox … a cleansing jolt of perspective, motivation, and humor.  BookPeople, Austin’s renowned one-of-a kind bookstore, has inked in June 25, 2008 at 7pm as the celebration of my book debut. As a go-getting TV personality and entrepreneur, I  can now add “Published Author” to the list of hats I am blessed to wear, but more importantly: I can cross it off my childhood “Bucket List”.

Those in attendance can expect a memorable night filled with the colorful surprises and, of course, signature motivation with a swift kick in the pants from me… the SOAPBOX™ Queen herself. 

Pure Soapbox will be available at BookPeople, Barnes and Noble, Borders and other independent bookstores; online at DaltonPublishing and Amazon. This is the first release from Wiggy Press, a new imprint of Dalton Publishing.  For the whole ball o’ wax: Kimberlie Dykeman Media Room
