-- Quote of the Day --

Yesterday, I mentioned a quote from one of our guests on the Conscious Discussions talk radio show. In keeping with the interview I'll be taking part of later this morning I'd like to share another quote from that same interview, where we were discussing predators in the publishing industry:

“…if you are getting hounded by a sales person and that you are losing if you don’t do something now… or if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. …For example… One company buys the back page of the New York Times Book review, a lot – and they put about 12-14 books (on that one page)… but anyone who knows anything about advertising knows that first of all you are on the back page of the New York Times Book Review where people have already gone through this entire thing reading book reviews by major publishing houses … the results are going to be: you just threw away $2500. I mean you have an ad for your book in a publication time after time after time to get any kind of traction. And it is those kinds of things that can be so misleading to people.”
