What does a publicist do? An interview with Levi Stahl

Nigel Beale, author of the Nota Bene Books blog, recently posted the audio from an interesting interview he conducted with the press’s publicity manager, Levi Stahl. The interview offers a rare insider’s perspective on book marketing and publicity, touching on everything from coordinating book tours and dealing with the media, to writing promotional copy, to the industry’s shift towards online marketing strategies. The pair top off the interview with a discussion of Stahl’s recent efforts in getting the UCP to re-issue the Parker novels, Richard Stark’s famous hardboiled noir mystery series. Listen in on the discussion at Nigel Beale’s Nota Bene Books blog.
