FishbowlLA: Bad PR Techniques in Action!

If there’s one thing for which the GalleyCat editors are grateful, it’s the overall civility of the people who want us to write about the things they’re doing. Not like the pitch FBLA got yesterday for a local bookstore appearance by the author of How to Woo a Bi’aaatch. As Tina Dupuy notes, it’s a real charmer:

“I noticed a big notice for ASK A MEXICAN book signing. Did he pay for that?”

The publicists (and authors) who write in to GalleyCat are much more pleasant to deal with—thanks, folks!
