Jon ReedI’m Jon Reed, a social media trainer and author of Get Up to Speed with Online Marketing. I previously worked in publishing for 10 years, including as publishing director for McGraw-Hill.

I started Publishing Talk in 2007 as a way of sharing advice on the emerging field of social media marketing with publishing clients.

It has become an online learning community for publishers, authors, agents and others wanting to learn about social media marketing, digital publishing, self-publishing and developments in the industry. Our author community includes established, new and aspiring authors. The self-publishing revolution has meant that many of our readers are as interested in doing it themselves as getting a traditional publishing deal.

With multiple contributors, formats and products, Publishing Talk is a comprehensive resource to help you write, publish and sell books. Find insider advice from industry experts and bestselling authors on the blog and in our print and digital Magazine. Develop your skills using our easy-to-follow Guides (more of these are coming soon!)
