Morning Brief — Thursday, June 26
The LA Times via the Washington Post reports that for the first time, Facebook outpaced MySpace in number of visitors and pages views (124 million visitors and 51 million views vs. 115 million visitors and 45 million page views). The other thing that tells us is if 240 million people worldwide have visited one or both sites and you haven’t, well — you might have some catching up to do.
Agent Kristin of Pub Rants posts the results of a book buying / reading survey. About 200 people responded to questions that included do you prefer paper or ebooks, do you buy a book based on the cover / word of mouth, etc.

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some information that will remain the same and that will remain useful, but there is much more that is or will become out of date, so please keep that in mind if you find yourself perusing my posts.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