Book publisher blogs impress

You might have remembered that we forced our publisher to start a blog before we’d sign the contract to do Naked Conversations with Wiley. The resulting blog by Joe Wikert has been most impressive over the past year. I saw he linked to Juliana Aldous at Microsoft. She gave me a lot of advice before I started working on the book and I don’t know how I missed her blog for so long. It’s good too. What do these blogs do? They give you a place to start a relationship as an author. Get tips. Learn about how they see the industry. And, if you have an idea for a book you now have two people to talk with.

Any other great book publishers blogging out there? Here’s another one: Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers. How about Tim O’Reilly? Gary Cornell of APress? Who is your favorite book publishing blogger?

  1. Robert,

    It’s Joe Wikert, not “Jim Wikert.” He was my acquisitions editor at QUE Books for several titles. Juliana was the acquisitions editor for a recent InfoPath book. Thanks for the heads-up on her blog. I’d say Joe’s ranks as my favorite publisher blog so far.
