I’m Jon Reed, a writer, publisher and digital media consultant. I’m the author of Get Up to Speed with Online Marketing, and 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 my publishing clients. It has since become much more author-focused.
Today, Publishing Talk aims to offer advice to new and aspiring authors on writing, publishing, and marketing books. We cover both getting a traditional publishing deal and self-publishing.
We’re a multi-author blog, with insider advice from bestselling authors, agents and industry experts. We have also previously experimented with a print and digital magazine, and are developing new ebooks, PDF resources, online courses and a podcast to support you on your journey to becoming a published author.
We’re also running our first one-day writers’ conference on How to Get Published at Foyles bookshop in London on Saturday 9th February 2019. Come along to get the inside scoop from a great line-up of speakers, and to network with your fellow writers.
We’re also big on Twitter. With over 340,000 followers, @publishingtalk is one of the top Twitter accounts for authors.
I hope you find something useful, interesting or insightful here to help you with your writing, publishing and marketing. Get in touch to let me know what you think, or join the discussion via our social media channels.
Talk to you soon,
Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Publishing Talk
