Author and media strategy consultant Ed Barks last week announced the July 7 publication date for his new book, Reporters Don’t Hate You: 100+ Amazing Media Relations Strategies.

Today, he revealed plans to offer the ebook for free.

Why provide the ebook at no cost? Barks explains: “I’ve been offering a bounty of materials for free on my crisis communications web page in light of the coronavirus crisis. Reporters Don’t Hate You is one more manifestation of that.

“As a means of making things easier for communications executives and corporate spokespeople during the pandemic,” he continued, “they will be able to take advantage of special promotions at www.barkscomm.com, the C-suite Blueprint blog, my LinkedIn presence, and on my Twitter feed.”

The promotions will begin on July 7. A series of offers will continue for the duration of the pandemic.

Barks also plans to reach out to his extensive network to spread the word. “I have been 100 percent committed since deciding to publish this book to get it in the hands of those who can use a lift during this time of need, and to offer it as a gift to repay those kind souls who have helped me throughout my career,” he said.

Reporters Don’t Hate You: 100+ Amazing Media Relations Strategies, published by Ogmios Publishing, will be widely available in both ebook and paperback formats.

Ed Barks serves as an advisor to communications executives to improve their companies’ messages and how they deliver them, and to government relations executives who want to reach their public policy goals. They gain an enhanced reputation, more opportunities for career advancement, and achievement of long-term business and public policy goals. He is the author of A+ Strategies for C-Suite Communications: Turning Today’s Leaders into Tomorrow’s Influencers and The Truth About Public Speaking: The Three Keys to Great Presentations. As President of Barks Communications, he has taught more than 5000 business leaders, association executives, and other experts how to succeed when they deal with the media, deliver presentations, and advocate before policymakers.
