Aha! Big Publishers Doing What Authors Have Been Doing For Some Time!

The "In the News" segment is something I include in my Sharing with Writers newsletter frequently. Here is the latest on books and streaming:


In the News:

Daniel Menaker, former executive editor in chief of the Random House Publishing Group and fiction editor of the New Yorker, will be the host of a new Web-based book show. The show is Titlepage. It will feature discussions between Menaker and four authors and will be streamed online at titlepage.tv on March 3.

Apparently everyone is beginning to understand that it is much easier to post video online than to get a show on television. Having said that, you may want to consult with an expert on that subject, Rey Ybarra. Find him at rybarra106@aol.com. He's the one who does my videos (find one of them on this blog). Read the whole N.Y> Times areicle on Menaker's "new" concept at: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/30/books/30mena.html?ex=1202706000&en=0a067128c2a480e5&ei=5070&emc=eta1
