Fulcrum’s Friday Round-up

Happy Friday Fulcrum blog readers! I hope you all have something fun planned outdoors or a great book to sit down with. I’m thinking a combination of the two sounds just great. It’s been a busy week at Fulcrum’s office in Golden, full of marketing meetings galore as we tackle the marketing plans for our Spring 2012 list. Exciting stuff! We’ll share more about future projects at some point this summer, but today I am going to share some of the wonderful publicity our current authors received this week.

Fulcrum author Renee Wilkinson (author of Modern Homestead: Grow, Raise, Create, Fulcrum Publishing, ISBN: 978-1-55591-748-7, $26.95) published an article this month in Natural Home & Garden.com. Titled “Drying Food: A Simple, Space-Saving Method of Food Preservation,” Renee explains how to dry your own food with an excerpt from Chapter 4 of Modern Homestead. Check out this great article if you are interested in drying food! http://www.naturalhomeandgarden.com/cooking/drying-food-simple-space-saving-food-preservation-method.aspx

An article written by Steve Friesen (author of Buffalo Bill: Scout, Showman, Visionary, Fulcrum Publishing, ISBN: 978-1-55591-719-7, $22.95) was recently published in the May 2011 issue of True West magazine. This beautiful four-page spread features never-before published photographs and a write up on the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave, which was selected as one of True West’s Top Ten Western Museums in 2010. If you are a Western aficionado or just interested in Buffalo Bill, pick up the May issue of True West for a great sneak peak into Steve’s award-winning book. Or stop by the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave for a real look into Buffalo Bill’s life!

Head over to the American Park Network E-Newsletter (ohranger.com) for a great review on The Mitsitam Café Cookbook (Fulcrum Publishing, ISBN: 978-1-55591-747-0, $22.95). http://www.ohranger.com/all-parks/news/2011/get-back-nature-mitsitam-café-cookbook

Fulcrum author Jerry Apps, (Campfires and Loon Calls: Travels in the Boundary Waters, Fulcrum Publishing, ISBN: 978-1-936218-07-3, $15.95) recently did a radio interview on the “Lake Effect” program hosted by Mitch Teich. Jerry spoke with Dan Harmon about a recent novel of Jerry’s, Cranberry Red, and there is also mention of Campfires and Loon Calls. Jerry has a wonderful radio voice and is very knowledgeable on his subjects, so please give this podcast a listen if you’re interested in learning more about Jerry Apps.

Have a great weekend and happy reading!
