There will also be lots of buzz about book publicity, especially in the face of a very changing media landscape so don't miss these two panels:
- "The Perils of Publicity: How to Build a Platform and Buzz for Your Book" moderated by WLT Board Member Susan Blount on Saturday at 1:45pm CT. Three book publicity pros including P&P managing director Rusty Shelton will chime in their thoughts on how to promote yourself and your book before you even land the book deal.
- "Media Madness: How to Land Ink, Airtime, and Buzz" sponsored by yours truly - Phenix & Phenix - on Sunday morning at 9 CT. You'll hear from Austin Chronicle's Kimberley Jones, KUT reporter and Morning Edition host Jennifer Stayton, and the Austinist editor Allen Chen about how authors and publishers can effectively work with the media.
