News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

Roundup / Update your database

In the eternal battle between good and evil, I mean print and online, Minonline reports that print is not dying (according to a Time Inc. exec, at any rate).

Scott Karp of Publishing 2.0 recently coined the term “link journalism” (basically, hyperlinks in an online article) and explains more here.  What this means for us book publicists is that even if a book or author is only mentioned in a piece, if that mention includes a hyperlink to the author’s website / blog / Amazon page, readers can click through and potentially buy the book.  Which is pretty much what a review or interviews does — only those are much harder to get.

TVNewser reports that MNSBC’s Tucker will be cancelled.  More details are expected later today.

XM Satellite Radio’s presidential election channel POTUS ’08 launched a new show, Politics Nation, this past weekend.  The show is hosted by Real Clear Politics associate editor Reid Wilson and The Politico’s Josh Kraushaar.  The weekly radio show will air 10 a.m. to noon ET.  According to the release, Politics Nation “will focus on this year’s presidential and congressional races. The show will also carry the weekly presidential radio address and Democratic response.” 

Among the Sunday morning talk shows, NBC’s Meet the Press comes in first, CBS’ Face the Nation second and ABC’s This Week third.
