Byte-Size Blair – May 12

Welcome to the second installment of Byte-Size Blair, our weekly wrap-up of all things social media. If you’re not already following us on FacebookTwitterTumblr, or Pinterest, give us a look.

  1. More Awards for Blair Authors–

  2. Writers Speaking Out Loud–Hub City, a nonprofit in South Carolina and one of the presses for which Blair distributes, has been making waves and headlines with their new movement, Writers Speaking Out Loud. They’ve been featured in Publishers WeeklyThe Guardian, and other news sources.
  3. Words with Friends–Speaking of our distributed lines, last week we introduced Words with Friends, a weekly post on our Tumblr that will highlight some of the amazing news coming from our friends at Hub City Press, Lookout Books, NewSouth Books, Eno Publishers, and all of our distributed lines.
  4. Crushworthy–The past week’s #MCM and #WCW entries were certainly notable. Teresa Kravtin, one of our reps, was voted Rep of the Year by Publishers Weekly. Brad Herzog, author of States of Mind, runs a hilarious blog and a press of his own. Plus, check out Y2K-era Matt Lauer… so much hair!
  5. Tweeting @ Blair’s Authors–The Hider triplets (two of whom, Anna and Julia are the authors of our upcoming Badass Civil War Beards) heart-ed our shout-out to their November pub date. Plus, Jeremy B. Jones of Bearwallow was just as excited as we were about the arrival of his memoir.

See you next Monday for more Byte-Size Blair. And for today’s bit of karma, we give you Tigger and Minnie Pearl, two doppelganger dogs of different owners, vintage, and gender, brought together when those owners became coworkers. Love at first walk.

Tigger and Minnie
