Bringing Books to Life

Publicity for Scholars

Did you know that most publishers consider the promotional window for a book closed six months after publication? No matter how much your publisher believes in your book, the publicist's interest will be fleeting.

Savvy authors can make the most of this all-too-brief publicity opportunity by building what's known in the business as a "platform": a virtual soapbox to raise your voice above the crowd. Building your brand is about much more than publicizing your book. It's about fashioning an identity as a modern public intellectual.

Whether you want to learn to blog, use social networking tools, or become a talking head, The Outside Reader can show you the way. Together we will create a customized networking plan that showcases your talents and expertise.
