Please remember, if you have a cabaret event coming up, to send in your press release to me at email@example.com - do not assume the venue will do it for you. Some venues send it items just a few days before show date, and skip some shows completely. And please do not rely on an announcement on FaceBook to be received by all on your "friends" list. Send your release by e-mail, directly. If your release is complete & appropriate and received at least a week before your event, and it will be published on the website. Releases fron advertisers and members are posted first. To see the type of press release information I am looking for CLICK HERE
