Writing Excuses 9.39: Publicity for Books

Patty Garcia, Director of Publicity for Tor & Forge books, joins us in front of a live audience at Westercon 67 to talk about what publicity activities look like for commercially published genre fiction books.

We grill her about what sort of criteria we should be using for review copies, and what other activities new authors and established authors alike might consider spending time on.
