    Well, if I lived in California, I’d be there. As a PR consultant who’s having difficult days I would LOVE to hear what newspaper people would say about today’s (to me) very difficult market. SO many papers are cutting staff that it’s hard to know if anyone is left to do any work. It seems to be a fragmented market out there.

    I find people are increasingly skipping print/media people entirely, and, at least some of the time, publishing their own books in order to get noticed, build credibility and build business, too. A colleague and I are doing this. We are using, for help and a good blueprint, a great book by Sophfronia Scott, “Doing Business By the Book.” It’s telling us everything we need to write our business book: how to get started, how to get this thing written, published and marketed. I think it will be a good addition to our PR marketing strategy to be talked about by the media people.
