News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Grid: 2/4-2/10

I’ve been meaning to post about email etiquette and more than that, usage trends and tips, particularly since many people have migrated their back-and-forth exchanges to discussion groups like Google Groups and Basecamp. What are your top email likes and dislikes? Do you prefer discussions to be conducted over email? Or in a discussion group? Leave your comments below.


Anyone who emails me the imprints of all the books listed (or houses if no imprint is available) will win the NPR Books Grid for the prior week that includes, in addition to the information below, interviewer, pub date, imprint, genre, post-interview Amazon ranking, pre-interview ranking (if the book was mentioned on Shelf Awareness and I was able to look up the number before the interview), and interview hyperlink.
