David Perlmutter -- Episode 55 -- Right Place Right Time For Securing a Publishing Deal

David Perlmutter -- Episode 55 -- Right Place Right Time For Securing a Publishing Deal:

We are excited to bring to you one of our favorite authors David Perlmutter for your listening pleasure. Dave is a dynamo and a marketing genius with a wealth of ideas in his
#CheekyMarketing campaign that he confesses included placing marketing materials in the men's rest rooms during the last London Book Fair. We interviewed Dave a year ago and within that time so much has happened due to his dogged determination that has resulted in scoring his first traditional publishing deal with his book Wrong Place Wrong Time. Dave is always a fun and witty guest and this interview is a joy to listen to.
