Between the art installation Justice is planning and Anastasia’s performance and clips, we have some of the most intense ambience of any club out there. However, that isn’t all we have to offer, because we have some more surprises to announce as we count down to the night of the show.

‘Laid’ Partners A.J. Llewellyn and John Bruno for Massive Studio’s Web Series

A.J. Llewellyn’s new gay erotic romance series, ‘Laid’ will release in digital novel format, and in webisodes produced by Massive Studio.

Hollywood, California – Gay Erotic Romance novelist A.J. Llewellyn takes a turn from his familiar tropical settings to begin a series focused on the gritty back streets of Los Angeles, with the release of ‘Laid’, on September 15, 2009.

Llewellyn introduces the character “Jack Cannon” in this eXtasybooks [] digital release. Cannon is an elite member of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit. Llewellyn describes him as, “Tough, smart and the kind of guy that relieves the pressures of his day by cruising the city’s gay bars off duty.” However, Cannon soon discovers that he has bitten off more than he can chew; when one hot night in the City of Angels brings him a devil of a dilemma – his new lover Lucio Natale, happens to be a violent mob boss, who is right at the top of the FBI’s most wanted list.

Llewellyn’s new series is a joint effort with film director and owner of Massive Studio [], John Bruno. Llewellyn says, “I am ecstatic to be working with John Bruno, who is, unlike my literary character, perfect in every way. ‘Laid’ is the first of four collaborations that John and I have committed to work on so far. This is the first time I have heard of a book and video project tying together in the adult realm in this way.”

Laid will initially run in “webisodes” through Massive Studio’s website, and the final video feature will be distributed after the web run by Pulse, under the Massive label. A man who is brand new to the adult industry, Hunter Marx, will portray “Jack Cannon”. Marx will do his very first sex scenes on video as the LA cop that dances with danger at every turn.

Bruno is very happy with the prospects of this joint venture. “A.J. and I were introduced by a mutual friend and we hit it off immediately. We share a love of porn and that lead to A.J. writing this book, which is based on a character that I have had in my head for a long time. Not only has it given us a chance to work together to bring the book series to video, but it also paves the way for us to work together on bigger projects. We have already planned a video feature that will originally release on DVD for our next co-venture. We are especially pleased to introduce Hunter to the gay audience with Laid, he not only plays the lead in the webisodes, but he’s also the cover model for A.J.’s book.”

TPW Hot Tip: Hit Your Target

When Press Releases Become SPAM

Many people believe that it is the quantity of contacts they possess that will generate the most coverage for their news. This is simply not true. If you are sending carbon copies of your press release to people that have no news outlet to place it in, you are “scatter gunning” your press release, and wasting your (and other’s) time. This may lead to your company emails being placed on “Spam” lists, and possibly having your email addresses blocked by entire email hosting services.

Here is a list of the types of contacts that you may have acquired during your tenure in the adult industry, and that should not be sent press releases concerning your company news; Other Publicists, another company’s Sales Staff, Marketing staff for another company, and web masters and performers that do not also run adult news sites. Most of these people have no use for your press releases, and at worst, they may take your news and become your direct competition in the market place, because of information contained in your press release.

The Press Wire contact base includes only validated press contacts. We only send press releases to people that have the ability to do something with your news. The Press Wire database is updated constantly, so we have the most current contact information for editors, bloggers and freelance reporters interested in content for news sites and publications in the adult industry.

86% of press releases sent out do not go to the press, but to other publicists and sales people. Hit the target every time with The Press Wire.

How The Press Wire Works

The Press Wire is based on the wire services that have been the standard form of press release distribution in mainstream entertainment and business for many years.

Publicists and business owners need a way to disseminate their news to a broad contact base of media outlets that are interested in stories they can present to their readers. News wires provide a paid distribution method to get that information to the media.

The difference between The Press Wire and other news wire services (like the Associated Press news wire and PR News Wire) is simple:

A. The Press Wire will accept adult entertainment and product news, including active links to sites that have hardcore content.

B. The Press Wire distributes user’s press releases directly to the editors of websites, publications, blogs and multiple newscaster systems on your behalf, instead of the press having to subscribe to The Press Wire news feed, as most press release distribution services and newscaster systems do.

The Press Wire charges a fee for all of our press release services, just as all of the other professional news wire services do. Whether it is writing your press release, or submitting your pre-written press release, there is a fee charged for The Press Wire Editors to handle your press release for you.

The Press Wire: Easy, affordable press release distribution services for the adult industry.

The Press Wire Now in TMZ Twitter Feed

Everyone at The Press Wire is thrilled to announce that TMZ has added The Press Wire to their Twitter Feed.

Filed under: TPW Updates, , , , ,

Thank you from The Press Wire

It seems that everyone that consulted on the idea of The Press Wire was correct: It is time for a service of this kind for the adult industry.

Professional publicists in mainstream have had the ability to deliver their news to the media in an efficient and timely fashion. Why hasn’t this been the case for adult publicity professionals? Publicists have thousands of other things that they do for their clients on a daily basis, streamlining the process of distributing press releases opens up time to get to the “meat” of great publicity.

While press releases are effective and valuable to any company or artist, press releases are not the end game in generating great publicity. Even if you base your entire publicity and marketing on the press release strategy, a publicist still must maintain personal contact with the press to follow-up on placing the stories that your press release garners. The Press Wire frees up time for a busy professional to do just that.

The media is recognizing the benefits of this service as well — news is about giving your readers timely and interesting information. While many large companies have the benefit of someone to handle their media relations and get their news out, how many small companies, performers and event promoters simply have no means to get the information to the press? The Press Wire is available for those that do not already have contacts to distribute their press releases to. This opens up a wealth of news for the adult media to present to their readers, that otherwise wouldn’t have even come to their attention.
