Written Under Fire: Baltimore Sun Correspondents' from Normandy to the German Surrender is a 264-page paperback book published by The Baltimore Sun. I owned this project and worked on it from start to finish. My responsibilities included researching photos and microfilm libraries, selecting photos and articles, typing the articles and organizing them to create the narrative, working side-by-side with a designer and overseeing the design and scheduling of all marketing and promotional materials, seeking-out and closing trade agreements for the promotion of the book with outside organizations (i.e. The World War II Foundation, War History Online and the local VFWs and American Legions) selling the product online and taking customer's phone orders, and overseeing a fulfillment clerk responsible for the shipment of each order.
Prior to launch and before I started promoting WUF in The Baltimore Sun's 30-print publications I ran the following facebook ads to build up hype.
