Besides the occasional celebrity sighting (last week, Kiefer Sutherland), one of the perks of living/working where I do is the access to industry professionals. Recently, I had the pleasure of participating in an intimate roundtable discussion with Barry Levy, screenwriter of VANTAGE POINT (2008) and the upcoming PARANOIA (2013).

I have been performing book publicity for over 500 authors since 2008. Not that I aspired to be this person I just developed the capabilities from simply loving social media.
