We are big fans of The Huffington Post, not only as a source for book reviews, political news, and entertainment, but also as a great way for authors to get publicity. How? The Huffington Post combines breaking news and blogs to deliver unique perspectives on a variety of issues and topics, and they are open to authors writing original content for their site. For example, one of our authors, Carole Mallory – whose recent memoir, LOVING MAILER, chronicles her nine year affair with the iconic author, Norman Mailer – just posted an entry that compares her experiences as a cover model in the 70s with a recent photo shoot she had for a feature in the New York Times’ Style section: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/carole-mallory/is-technology-destroying_b_566179.html. Another client, Rosalyn Hoffman, author of BITCHES ON A BUDGET had a post about simple Mother’s Day gifts for every budget: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rosalyn-hoffman/5-simple-mothers-day-gift_b_566016.html. And this wasn’t the first time either author has blogged for The Huffington Post. Check out who else is blogging for them at www.huffingpost.com.
