Publicist Sandra Beckwith's Quotes and Info For Writers

Sandra Beckwith puts out a quality newsletter twice per month to help writers promote their books, appropriately titled Build Book Buzz. She also provides potential ideas for books.

A former publicist, Sandra knows the ins and outs of the publishing industry.

The current newsletter features NYT bestselling author John Scalzi, who is also gearing up to build his Big Idea Authors website - opening on my birthday, April 20th. Take a look to see if you're interested in being interviewed or showcased.

"Build Book Buzz is a free e-newsletter published monthly by
Beckwith Communications, Please forward
this newsletter to anyone. To subscribe, visit We do not share our mailing list with any
individual or organization for any reason."

I wouldn't recommend any site that sells, or rents, or distributes, or shares, their mailing list. That's a spammer's network. I won't promote spamming. Ever. (It's akin to my loyalty to Ann Landers - who hated having drop-in company as much as I did - and do.)

Sandra has an interesting survey going on, but it closes on March 1st. If you'd like to take part, time is running out.

Check it out and then drop me an email at linda at lindajhutchinson dot com to let me know what you think. Or leave a comment here.

Are you interested in reading about other sites on my recommended list? Let me know what you're looking for and I'll find it.
