Morning Brief — April 17, 2008
Bud Parr of Chekhov’s Mistress mentions that Idlewild, a bookstore specializing in travel / culture / international literature will be opening in NYC’s Union Square. The website doesn’t say when exactly in 2008 the store will be opening …
Sandra Beck of the publicity blog Build Buzz has some ideas about how to pitch the media with TV show story lines. Typically we’re all pretty well-versed in the news stories of the day as we pitch the media (or we should be, at any rate), but this might be another way to pitch the right book / author.

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some information that will remain the same and that will remain useful, but there is much more that is or will become out of date, so please keep that in mind if you find yourself perusing my posts.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