  5. Hi!

    I just wanted to reach out and enquire as to how one might contact you? I believe we might have some media/materials that might interest your readers as we are making a new vampire film that will launch it’s funding campaign in February. Would love to talk to you more about it! Please let me know! (You can check out our facebook page below).

    Best,

    Apologies for emailing out of the blue. I am writing from Unbound, a crowd-funded publishing company that are dedicated to putting authors directly in contact with readers.

    I heard about your blog and I know how popular it is, so I wanted to let you know about a book we are planning that you might like/write about/tweet etc. Written by legendary music journalist John Robb “Goth: The True Story of Post-Punk”, re-examines one of the most fascinating musical periods in recent history – the time just after punk. Sadly, many of the best bands from this period have never had the recognition they deserve – the goth scene has been removed from music’s historical narrative. This book will be a major work that redresses this oversight and underlines the cultural power of, arguably, the key movement of that period.

    You can find more about the book here http://unbound.co.uk/books/goth-the-true-story-of-post-punk

    If you felt inclined to write about, tweet or draw any attention to this book we would be forever in your debt! Also if you were to talk about the book we would put your name in the back under the Supporter List as a way to say thank you.

    Best wishes,

    Georgia

  8. Hi,

    I hope you’re well. I’d like to tell you about a piece of theatre coming soon to London that might interest your readers – Jekyll and Hyde at the Platform Theatre, Kings Cross, London.

    Dr Jekyll is here cast as a fascinating and dangerous female scientist, who comes to England from the Balkans. Clearly tormented by unspeakable horrors in her past (resonances of Balkan conflicts and ethnic cleansing), she conducts bizarre scientific experiments as she seeks safety by becoming a man. Using her own body as her laboratory, physical self-harming mirrors the psychological damage she has endured. This Jekyll tears out the heart of the issues it explores – gender, power, identity, self, freedom and individuality. Jekyll & Hyde is a visual feast that merges Weimer cabaret with a creepily melodramatic aesthetic underpinned by a stunning live audio score and soundscape that cranks up an atmosphere of claustrophobic hysteria.

    Directed by Jonathan Holloway, and in produced by Chung Ying Theatre Company in association with Red Shift Theatre Productions Ltd, this promises to be an exciting cultural collaboration.

    Please do let me know whether you’re interested in writing a feature about the show, and whether you’d be interested in receiving a press release.

    Best wishes,

    Naomi
