Bring on the Quil family (Ny- and Day-) and warm up the chicken soup, I’m under the weather. This will be a brief post.
If you are not in the habit of checking the New York Times every day you are missing out. Not only did they report recently on the vital new Preppy Club trend, they sometimes provide some reportage about books. Old fashioned, I know.
Today they have an article about the way in which some authors are using audiobooks, and especially digital audio, to publicize their actual forthcoming books, putting the cart before the chicken and the egg. Authors are releasing original audio content to companies like Audible in addition to making their books available, and they’re also getting some publicity from it.
One more way of using that newfangled technology to reach some more people. With their ears.
