I’m always looking for tips / suggestions that will help book publicists — if you are a publicist, a media person, someone with a bookstore or lecture venue, or anyone interested in publishing or the media, feel free to submit your pitching tips / ideas about the marketing and promotion of books in general.
I will post pretty much any information that is of use of book publicists. I will also name the person (first name only) who provided the tip unless you ask me not to. If you have submitted a tip and contact me within 24 hours of your name appearing on the blog, you will win a copy of the NPR Books Grid (that lists author, book, show name, interviewer, post-interview Amazon ranking, imprint and hyperlink to the online interview. Not so shabby, huh?)
Contact me at bookpublicityblog[at]gmail[dot]com. If I don’t respond, it’s not that I’m blowing you off — I’m just busy. Aren’t we all.
No manuscript submissions, please. Those I will blow off.
