Publicity

Posted by Lynne Griffin

This is funny to me no matter how many times I view it. Partly because I feel his pain and partly because it's a bit ridiculous.

Watch, laugh, and learn.



On a more optimistic note, Editor-in-Chief George Witte of St. Martin's Press spoke about Life Without Summer on Online and Unscripted, a webcast sponsored by Publishers Weekly and the Association of American Publishers. You can listen to it by going to the seventh link down, where George's name is listed. Once you download the program, SUMMER is the fourth book of five he discusses.

Note: You can go here if the embedded video is glitchy. This clip is worth watching.

Holy cow, that was funny.

That would be me. Maybe someday it will be. I'd be OK with that.

Kira,

The irony of this makes it extra funny. And yes, someday you will be published and have a new set of concerns.

It's too bad creating something great isn't enough and you have to spend more time marketing and advertising it than you do creating it. But I suppose that is what the publishers are for.
