Things are heating up for The Science Writers’ Handbook: Everything You Need to Pitch, Publish, and Prosper in the Digital Age. I contributed two sidebars to this book, and I think it’s excellent–full of good, solid, practical advice about how to be a science writer. (Particularly a freelancer, but it should be useful to everyone.)
The book comes out in a few weeks, which means the publicity machine is on the move. It’s sort of a homemade publicity machine–a few dozen people, all working together to get the word out.
Our fantastic web team has started a great website with new blog posts daily, and authors are hitting up conferences and events around the country to talk about it. Some attendees at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs meeting wrote about a panel featuring some of the book’s authors.
