I wrote a press release using help from this page - this week I'm going to have a spotlight article in the Hull Daily Mail business section, so can't be too wrong.

Only thing I have to say is try to emphasise a newsworthy point (mine was that I'm a wee 16 year old fresh out of school - they're a gullible newspaper I know).

Hi Chris,

Well done, that's excellent news! It must have been the latest addition to your portfolio that swung it!
