Ever heard of The Hotsheet?
If you haven’t signed up for The Hotsheet yet, or if you’ve never even heard of it, let me be the first to tell you to sign up. It’s terribly difficult to sift through the epic mountains of marketing data on the internet and this does it for you. I almost never recommend products on my page, but this one is a must.
It’s a combined effort between Porter Anderson and Jane Friedman. Anderson is a former CNN journalist and is now editor in chief of Publishing Perspectives. Friedman is a consultant for Publishers Weekly. Both have extensive knowledge of the book industry and marketing trends within that industry.
The Hotsheet is basically a book publishing news roundup. So instead of scouring the Internet for what you’re looking for, these two pretty much know what you’re looking for and are trying to make it easier for you to find.
It’s free for a month, so if it’s not your thing, you can opt-out. Or if it is, then after the free one, it’s $59/year. Since you’re a writer, it’s also a tax write-off (but I’m no tax attorney, so double-check!). Click here to read more about it.
