The Book Publicity Blog

News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

Morning Brief — Thursday, May 22

Tiffany from Krupp reports “Jessica Guff from GMA Now is taking a six-month leave of absence starting in June.  Moving forward, contact Lee Alexander and/or Laiea Smith.”

The PR blog The Buzz Bin talks up the importance of bloggers commenting on other blogs.  (You may remember that the other day The Publicity Hound’s Blog posted about blog comments as well.)

ReadWriteWeb posts some very handy tips about social media, essentially social media 101.  It talks about blogging and also using social networks, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

***

RWW also lists the top 10 social networking sites for the month of April.  Although MySpace has far and away the most members, its three percent growth last month is a sliver of the 56 percent growth rate for Facebook or 361 percent for LinkedIn.

Buzz, Balls & Hype runs a feature about how often authors should check in with their agents.  As a publicist, I don’t have much to do with the author / agent relationship, but it’s interesting to see how these things work.
