Welcome to The Publisher’s Advocate Blog!

October 22, 2009


My name is Brian Hickey, welcome to my blog. This is a special occasion for me, because this is my first blog! After several years in the publishing business, I suppose now would be a good time to start blogging!

The intent of this particular blog, is to serve the publisher. I would like to have a gathering place where small publishers (and people who are thinking about becoming a publisher) from around the country (and world!) can get together to discuss typical publishing industry practices. I’d also like it to be a place where we can discuss specific publishing opportunities, and offer each other advice on how to grow our businesses! I would also like this to be a place where we can help each other decide on publishing opportunities that exist out here.

Since I’ve spent the last 5 years publishing the Suburban New York edition of a national magazine called Travelhost, most of my posts will be about my experiences with this company. I have many questions to pose, and curiosities about how others handle business in the publishing world.

I’m excited to get started, and will do so shortly. Since it will take some time for a significant following to develop. I may start by posing questions, and answering my own questions…just to get the conversation started.

I hope that this blog will serve the publisher in every corner of this country, and that you will find this information helpful in learning all about the publishing world from my perspective, and those who post here.

Thanks, and glad to have you with us!
