Kassia Krozser of Booksquare posts about why publishers should blog.  She brings up a couple examples, bad and good: St. Martin’s page for Janet Evanovich and Simon & Schuster’s page for Judy Blume.  Which reminds me, I was on the Penguin Group website the other day and saw the DK imprint has begun introducing staff members on their blog.  I think that’s clever move — as someone who works in publishing, I’m always interested to know more about my colleagues.  And for authors, agents and other people who are interested in the publishing industry, it’s a good way to get a peek into a publishing house.
