Working with book bloggers
I am grateful to Kathleen Callista (@callista83) for a tweet about working with book bloggers on The Book Publicity Blog http://bit.ly/f8kbcC which has some useful suggestions for book bloggers that will of course be of interest to any book publicists and authors.
You’ve probably come across GalleyCat before but I am grateful to Florida based Adrian Fusiarski (@Fusiarski) for alerting me to 'Best Book Publicity and Marketing Twitter Feeds' @GalleyCat http://bzz.co.cc/grrx1D
Finally, no look at book marketing would be complete without mentioning the irrepressible Emlyn Chand (@emlynchand) for all her hard work launching http://www.novelpublicity.com (@novelpublicity) where you can get advice on DIY PR and services including custom book trailers, blog tours and use of social media.
All I need to do now is get back to writing and finish the book…
