I’ve been tagged by Owen on this to call or not question. For what it’s worth I tend to call before as I don’t like to send unsocilited stuff. If I don’t know them, I call and find out what format they want the release in. It gives me a chance to get in a small pre pitch – pitch.  It also means that they get the release in the way and at the time that they want it.

If I know them I don’t mind calling afterwards though.
