Quote of the Day
I hate publicists and publicity. But I love the people.
In many ways, it was much, much harder to get the first book contract. The hardest thing probably overall has been learning not to trust people, publicists and so forth, implicitly.
Many American TV actors employ agents, managers, business managers, publicists and stylists, and are now adding digital media manager to the list. Their job is to reach out to the fans, managing websites, Twitter feeds, Facebook and Wikipedia.
I know that every time I list something that I am, I am potentially alienating a whole group of people. Publicists and managers will encourage you not to say what political party you belong to, what you eat, what you don't eat, who you sleep with and all that stuff.
If you took away publicists and things and people spoke for themselves, then they'd have to be responsible for their words.
I think celebrity has become almost normalized. I feel like we all live our lives in a pale imitation of celebrity. With Facebook, we choose a photo that is not too good a photo - we're more arch than that. We're our own celebrity publicists. We understand it so innately.
The reason I hate publicists is because I think if we got rid of them everything would be on equal footing.
With Facebook and Twitter, we're all our own little publicists in a way.
I've never been a popular person, but it doesn't matter. I have everything in my life that I want. I'm not a walking publicity stunt. I'm not an anarchist, or bitter. I'm not trying to be subversive. I just try to remain unguarded, unprotected by fear, and agents and publicists, and I feel comfortable that way.
Also, there are authors and publicists using the Internet to manipulate opinion, both positively for a work and negatively against the competition. I don't do this and can't stomach it, honestly.
R. A. Salvatore
I think good publicists are just like good mommies - always looking out, making sure folks are comfortable and making sure that folks are on time and making sure that folks are getting what they need and know what they need to do.
It's a lot of fun being dressed by designers and surrounded by publicists.
I've had high-powered publicists in my career, and I've had publicists when they've had no power. I've run the gamut.
I'm not in the business to make people aware of me, and publicists are very expensive - they're $3,500 a month! I don't want to spend that kind of money so I can get a stupid article in 'Interview' magazine.
Publicists cater to bloggers because they can play them; bloggers cater to publicists because they want their ads.
You can understand why good publicists go on to run distribution companies: because the creativity involved is complex and nuanced.
I never wanted to work with celebrities. I have no interest. I don't really care about their egos and their publicists.
You can have all the agents and publicists in the world but no one's ever going to give you 110 per cent like someone who loves you.
You go through publicists because it's easy for a publicist to say to another publicist, 'No'.
In Hollywood you always feel a bit like a hake. The publicists march people up and down in front of you and they interview you... You feel like the turbot and the sea-bream go by, and you're the hake.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
