Morning Brief — March 24, 2008
When I don’t get around to finishing my NYTBR — which of course is absolutely never — I find Sarah Weinman’s weekly book review roundup on Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind quite helpful. She summarizes the Sunday book sections of all the major American as well as UK papers. Make sure to check her site every Monday morning to get a good sense of what’s been reviewed the previous weekend.
Jon Friedman compares Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley on CBS MarketWatch.
I pretty much love everything about computers and the web (except for Second Life which I just don’t get), but I can’t hide my head in the sand when the digital world isn’t doing so well. E&P (that’s Editor & Publisher) notes that although the top 30 newspapers websites have seen an increase in traffic over the past year, the amount of time actually spent on the sites has decreased. Check here for the stats.

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some information that will remain the same and that will remain useful, but there is much more that is or will become out of date, so please keep that in mind if you find yourself perusing my posts.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.
