Putting the Pub[lic Speaking] into Publishing
This morning at the fine publisher where I work we have our Fall 2013 Launch. This means I--along with every other editor in the joint--must get up and give a big spiel about all my Fall books. We've all been working furiously on our powerpoint slides for the last week, and this morning I got up super early, put on some nice duds, and took a cab to work in the dark so as to arrive early enough to sit down and practice the whole thing out loud before I actually "go on" at nine. So you'll excuse me if I cut this short to go do that now.
