The marketing aspect of writing can be daunting to any writer—especially those new to the scene. To help guide you in that process, we’ll be doing an interview series, Industry Influencer Spotlight, in which we pose questions to experts in the publishing and/or marketing industry.
Gabrielle Gantz, senior publicist at Picador, was gracious enough to answer some of our questions for the very first article in our Industry Influencer Spotlight series. She has written for The Faster Times, The Nervous Breakdown, and The Rumpus. In her free time she writes about arts and culture at The Contextual Life and co-runs the literary event calendar Book Boroughing. She can be found on Twitter @contextual_life. If you’d like to know more about the publicity process, whether you self-publish or work with a publishing house, read the essay she wrote for The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America entitled, “Subject: Hello From Your Publicist.”
Gabrielle took a moment in her busy schedule to share her expertise with Writer’s Relief and all of our wonderful followers. Read what Gabrielle has to say!
