SRO Announces New Contributing Writer, PR Person! Neale To Write Feature Articles, Reviews, Public Relations

PRIEST RIVER, IDAHO - As some of our readers may know, along with my duties as publisher of Standing Room Only, I am also in the process of publishing my first book, a music biography about the late-great, bassist and co-lead vocalist of The Cars, Benjamin Orr.

During the journey of writing this book I have come in contact with, and become friends with, many Cars’ fans all over the world. One of these friends, Donna Neale, is not only the ultimate Cars’ fan, but she is also a great writer, and we have been discussing ways in which we can assist each other in our endeavors. We are happy to announce we have created a couple avenues in order to do just that.

The final plans are not yet in place, however, moving forward, Donna will be contributing to SRO. We are thrilled to have her on board, and to give her excellent writing a new platform and audience! She will be contributing reviews and feature articles about not only her expertise on The Cars, but her other music/arts-related interests as well.

Also, as I draw closer to the publishing of the Orr biography, Donna will also be assisting me with public relations regarding the book, (my “West Coast” PR-person) helping to not only promote the book in the “Cars’ World,” but other channels within the music and social-media world as well. SRO is excited to have Donna as part of our team, for she is a very creative person and full of positive energy, which is clearly reflected in her writing.

Look for Donna’s first writing contributions coming soon, starting with a series of album/CD reviews revolving around the recent, re-issuing of The Cars’ classic back-catalog. After that, we shall see what Donna has in store for us! Until then, welcome aboard Donna and we are looking forward to all the possibilities!
