In which I’m interviewed by Jeannine Hall Gailey:

Some of the books I want to write about in the coming days are The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion and Beautiful & Pointless by David Orr and Honeycomb by Carol Frost, a varied list that has, to my mind, a clear through-line. But not today. Today, I give you a link to the incomparable Jeannine Hall Gailey’s blog, in which she interviews me about poetry and marketing. Which is how I make my living, after all, so with any luck I sound like I know what I’m talking about. Thank you to Jeannine for the pleasure and honor!

  1. God, that’s a gorgeous list of books — I’ve had Didion’s on the shelf for about a year now, and haven’t read it now, and every time I pass it, I cuss myself for it. And that interview! Absolutely amazing! Some really spectacular advice, particularly about finding a balance between under- and over-promoting. I’m hoping to see a full length from you soon, my dearest!

  2. How fun to read an interview with the incomparable Marie Gauthier. Your advice on marketing is really valuable — and I agree with you that social networking works best when you give more than you receive (or ask for). I’m looking forward to hearing that someone’s taken your book and it’s coming out soon. xo
