On one rainy evening in November, six friends, including myself, were hanging out, having a grand ole’ time, when one of them suddenly had an epiphany.

Tyler Macklin, a University of Oregon electronic media major, realized that everyone who was hanging out had something in common: they were all involved in the field of media, and not only that, but they all brought different media skills to the table.

To make a long story short, those six individuals now make up Altered Impact Media (AIM), a freelance full service production company based out of Eugene, Oregon.

Currently AIM is in the process of making its Web site, gaining clients, and establishing a presence in the Eugene market.

Now that I’ve talked about how AIM came to be, I will tell you what we “AIM” to do.

sharon-book-signingAlthough it has been anything but a quick or small task, my first media coverage, based on my public relations work, has finally arrived!

I have been working on a freelance public relations project with Sharon M. Brandsma, author of “Glory Rose and the Gloaming” for over a month now. In that time I have put many of my PR skills to work. I have written a feature news release, targeted and pitched the story idea to reporters, sent out many copies of the novel to book editors and librarians, created a book signing poster, recorded a pod cast and made a social media release. I guess you could say I have been trying to promote the crap out of it.

After doing the initial research and work, I waited around for a few weeks (basically till after the election), before I heard anything back. The first reporter I contacted, Randi Bjornstad from the Register-Guard, was the one to take an interest in the story and write it.

I am very happy and proud that my hard work and dedication has paid off for Brandsma and myself. I am not being paid or even getting credit for working with Brandsma; I am doing it solely because I love and wholeheartedly believe in “Glory Rose and the Gloaming,” and I knew my PR skills could help Brandsma out. Without a doubt, I believe that this is the beginning of a long journey to stardom for Brandsma, and I’m so happy that I could be involved with it!

I’m really hoping that this media coverage will expand her fan base and readers, because this book deserves to be read!

If you have a teen, “tween,” or fantasy loving friend, brother/sister, or distant relative, and are looking for a great gift to give this holiday season, you should consider buying “Glory Rose and the Gloaming.” What better gift can you give to someone than an imaginative, picturesque and action filled adventure? Think of it this way, you would be supporting and native Oregonian, and the book is under $15. In my opinion, books are great gifts to give because they have more potential than almost any other gift; they continue to give for a lifetime.

With this freelance project, I have learned invaluable PR skills that I will take with me on my continuing journey to finding a career in PR. Working with this book, and Brandsma, has sparked creativity and confidence in my work that I needed to further my PR potential. I can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for me, and for Brandsma’s “Glory Rose and the Gloaming.”
