The Book Publicity Blog

News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

Morning Brief — Tuesday, September 23

I’m working on putting together a list of publishing house blogs for an upcoming post.  Some are already listed on my blogroll, but if your house / imprint maintains one (or you know of one) that is not listed, let me know and I’ll add it.


Cindy Hamel, media escort in the Raleigh / Durham / Chapel Hill / Greensboro area, reported that the Greensboro News & Record is slashing their book coverage too:

Elma Sabo says they no longer have a book review section.  Elma is writing for the Ideas section and may cover non-fiction books that are tied into local issues—but please email her first.  Books are not being opened in their offices and they are not reviewing any fiction at all.

  1. Hi there,

    I’m the marketing director for a small Canadian publisher located in Vancouver, BC.
    We’re distributed by Consortium in the US.

    We just launched our blog last week.

    I really enjoy reading your book publicity blog. Lots of great information.
