Morning Brief — Monday, January 12
Cision reports that for the first time, more people get news from the Internet than from newspapers and lists the top 10 newspaper blog networks (excluding national newspapers like USA TODAY and the Wall Street Journal).
Apparently the micro-blogging site Twitter grew 752 percent in 2008 (which I found out when Mashable tweeted their story). And lots o’ folks in the publishing industry are on Twitter (tip courtesy of a direct message — also on Twitter — from Amacom). Yes, that Twitter is mighty useful.

Fall 2012: I’ve really enjoyed writing about book publicity and meeting (0nline and in person) writers, publicists, editors, agents and others in the publishing industry, but I’ve — reluctantly — come to the conclusion that I just don’t have the time to maintain this blog.
I imagine there is some information that will remain the same and that will remain useful, but there is much more that is or will become out of date, so please keep that in mind if you find yourself perusing my posts.
For some time now, I’ve closely followed a lot of very informative sites about media and about the publishing industry. Since I find myself quite voluble at times about issues that pertain to my job in the publicity department at a large publishing house, I thought I’d set up a book publicity blog. The purpose of this blog is provide tips, primarily, but also information about publishing / marketing trends that will help book publicists — and hopefully others in media and publishing — do our jobs with greater ease and efficiency. Please note that the opinions expressed on this blog are my own, not those of my company.
