Speedy Publishing On The Menu

Today’s media- bistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast focused on the biggest news in publishing today: Sarah Palin‘s upcoming memoir and Tina Brown‘s new book imprint.

Hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven discussed former Vice Presidential candidate Palin’s upcoming book Going Rouge, whose publication date was just moved up to November.

They also talked about Brown’s announcement about her joint venture with Perseus Books, Beast Books, which will give writers for her online publication The Daily Beast one to three months to churn out books that will first be put into an e-book format and then published in hard copy. What will this fast turn around mean for the publishing industry? Jason admitted that sometimes the industry’s vast infrastructure can quickly turn around books in the face of an important news event, like Michael Jackson‘s death, but Brown’s format is bound to cause a dust up among traditional publishing companies.

Also discussed: New “Saturday Night Live” actress Jenny Slate‘s f-bomb screw up.
