Are you looking to get a press release done?

I highly recommend Mickie Kennedy and his team at eReleases for all business and organization press release needs.

The team at eReleases will look over your draft, proof it, and spice it up a little bit if needed so that you can make sure it will be seen by more reporters and other people with a great headline and really good content throughout.

They do a good job teaching you how to do a press release, too.

Go to and send out your press releases through eReleases! They do an excellent job. I highly recommend them.

Back in January my wife and I watched the movie The Help (2011). She’s wanted to watch it for a long time, and we finally sat down to see it.

It was really good! It had excellent characters and story structure.

I did not read any marketing materials about this movie before we watched it, so all my comments are from the film itself. (Note: We haven’t read the book.)
