Things are now happening very quickly with the production of my latest book The New Rules of Marketing and PR: How to use news releases, blogs, podcasts, viral marketing and online media to reach your buyers directly. The cover is finalized and I think it is great!
Last week I finished my final review of the galley proof of the book and this week I need to review the index (ugh—not fun).
I'm told that books will ship from Amazon and the other online booksellers in late May, so if you want to be one of the first to get your own copy as soon as they are released, now is the time to pre-order. Bulk purchases at a discount are available from Barnes & Noble.
I'm thrilled that Robert Scoble, Vice President Media Development, PodTech.net and co-author of Naked Conversations has written a foreword to the book. Watch this space – I will share the foreword here in a few weeks. Thank you Robert.
Also, I would like to thank the following people for kindly taking the time to read an early draft of the book and provide me with endorsements that appear either on the back cover or on the inside front of the book.
