Four years ago at this time I had just started at the Press and was planning my first publicity trip to Chicago. My predecessor had provided a list of her Chicago contacts, which included book review editors at the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times. The Trib‘s editor was able to fit me in but the Sun-Times editor wasn’t available. By the following year he had moved on from the Sun-Times.
I may still get that meeting. In 2010 we will publish a new paperback edition of his book What’s That Pig Outdoors? Follow Henry Kisor’s current publishing experience at The Reluctant Blogger.
I worried in Saturday’s blogpost whether the University of Illinois Press editor handling the manuscript of the upcoming second edition of What’s That Pig Outdoors? would do so with a gentle and deft touch, or change stuff just for change’s sake to show me who’s the boss.
