Media Kit for Lynda McKinney Lambert
Updated 3 October 2019
Today, I’ve spent a few hours updating my Media Kit.
I realized I did not have my latest book listed on my Media Kit, and in the process of updating it, I realized there were other updates that needed to be added to it.
Below is my updated version. If you have not created your own Media Kit, you may want to begin working on it now. This is a great way to share information when you are asked for it by editors who want to know more about you.
I hope this is useful to you and that this post helps you get started on creating one for yourself.
I’d love to see what you do with yours – so let me know about it.
