This comes from an ezine I subscribe to: This is the time of year when smart Publicity Hounds are creating "Best of 2008" lists to squeeze a few more publicity hits into 2008. As for me, it's time for my annual "Best of the Publicity Hound's Tips of the Week" ebook, my gift to you at Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year's. The ebook includes the best 24 tips from this past year, or tips that generated a lot of response from readers.
