The Campaign Continues

AWP has been up and running for officially 2 months now and it has been non-stop ever since. With the campaign beginning this month there is plenty keeping us busy. We've gotten our literature together and we're passing out flyers, brochures, and business cards, but it came as no surprise to us that the best way to spread the word about what we're doing is online.

The world is on the web. Our emailing campaign has been the most effective thus far as we are meeting a lot of interesting and encouraging people along the way. In just a short time we have reached a global audience. People from all backgrounds and cultures are coming around to seeing our vision and what we're trying to accomplish.

AWP is getting back to the basics of online networking. We're staying focused on providing a family-style atmosphere to our clients and supporters. We have enough room for everyone's success.

The AWP Campaign

Because we are a very new community we have just begun the campaign process to get the word out about our site and our services. We have quite an extensive mailing list of bookstores, community centers, schools and other places to target. We're going door-to-door, online, and by word of mouth. But of course we have to take baby steps so we're beginning right here in the Silicon Valley.

Here is a list of some of the categories we're recruiting although we are open to other venues:

Artists and Designers
including: photography, digital arts, painters, clothing designers, and interior decorators

including: caterers

including: novelists, journalists, poets, and bloggers

including: singers, song writers, lyricists, rappers, composers, and arrangers

including: actors/actresses, stage performers, and dancers

If you don't see your category listed, it's not because we have excluded you.
All serious artists are welcome to join the Divine Council.

The Kandake Shop

I know the holidays are coming up and people are shopping early, so you might be interested in something original to offer your friends, co-workers, and loved ones. Online shopping is the best because you can do all your shopping without dealing with crowded malls, hard to find parking, and road rage that seems to accompany the holiday season. You can do everything from your living room and have the gift sent directly to the recipient.

Keeping that in mind, check out The Kandake Shop at We've got apparel, office supplies, video cameras (not kidding) coffee mugs, journals, cards, messenger bags, and framed prints. All of the art featured are prints of my original paintings.

So stop on by and support a new artist. The proceeds from The Kandake Shop are going towards building my new company and assising with the expensive costs of self-publishing my first novel.
