December 1st, 2002:
VA: Greetings, first I just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful
holiday season. As I move toward the New Year I will be
starting some new promotions. For the month of December Guitar9
will be providing a free copy of my CD Spider
Dance with every copy of In The Machine purchased. So if you
would like a free copy to play or just to give away, then
December is your month of opportunity!
The marketing for
the season also includes a full page advertising spread for In The Machine in the next
issue of Progression
Magazine. The magazine should be on the shelves around the 20th of December
and should include a review. They have a tough review editor but
I believe In The Machine will shine.
planned for the magazine 20th
Century Guitar. The ad first ran in the November issue but
the December issue (due to hit shelves on December 1) should also have
a review of In The Machine in the Instrumental Guitar
Just to let you
know what your support has done for the CD,
In The Machine made it to number 2 on the Guitar9 Heavy Metal Charts
and is sitting in the top 50 Most Popular - so thanks to everyone for making this
CD such a success!!! Remember In The Machine makes a great Christmas present,
particularly with the 2-for-1 promotional at Guitar9.
Thanks again for
it Loud! - KB
