Darryl, you could also of course target a few dozen key publications directly. Doing so often increases your chances of being picked up; particularly if you're interested in gaining traditional ink and not just online coverage.
A press release is a written communication directed at members of the news to announce something of value.

Today, most releases are distributed via the internet or emailed to reporters in a specific niche. Commercial press release services distribute thousands of news releases each and every day.

SEO press releases can bring you first-page visibility for your keywords very quickly. Sometimes, you can take over multiple spots on the first page of Google for your keywords.

I tried PRWeb in the past with some success. As another poster mentioned there are other ways such as software packages that distribute your press release, but that's basically what spammers do so you're lost in the mess.

Thanks for these good suggestions. There are definitely some options I've never heard of in the list!
