CASE STUDY: 5 Major Interview Requests in 72 hours!
Thanks to the PR Publicist, retired NBA All-Star Ricky Pierce received 5 major interview leads and 56 review leads in the first 72 hours for his Outskirts Press book, Bouncing Billy.
Ricky Pierce, the former Rice University star, retired from the National Basketball Association (NBA) in 1998. He took with him 14,467 points, shooting 49.3 percent from the floor and 88.5 percent from the foul line during his 16-year NBA career. He was the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year in 1987 and 1990 and an All-Star in 1991. He is the creator and inventor of the AccUShot22 Basketball, which aids children through adults in the ball-handling and shooting skills. Pierce has always been fascinated with the way children learn. Having three children of his own, he quickly came to understand the importance of reading to children and the great impact that a book can have on a child. While playing in the NBA, Pierce had the opportunity to visit many schools and children’s hospitals, where reading was a big part of the visit. Those experiences inspired him to write Bouncing Billy and make a positive difference in the lives of children. Pierce resides in Texas with his wife, Joyce, formerly of the multi-Grammy award-winning group, The 5th Dimension, along with their three children, Christian, Rachel, and Aron.
