Publishing: An industry of out-of-control of egos, unrealistic expectations, and books with the shelf life of milk.
4.2 Star Review – Shelf Life (The Publicist Book # 2)
I recommend this book.
This is the second book in the Publicist series. I admit that I have not read book 1. But was told this book is a continuation. It started right where the first book ended.
Kate Mitchell is a publicist for MD publishing. She is having an affair with a married man. When something happens at her job she decides to quit and move to California.
She moves in with a friend Nick she knows is in love with her. He knows she loves someone else but maybe he can heal her broken heart and she will fall for him.
Marc is who she left behind. He is married. He loves her but has made it clear he was staying married. After she leaves and he is divorced he knows he needs to get her back as he has loved her forever.
When she opens her own publishing firm she wants Marc to work with her. Will she stay with Nick or go back to Marc
You learn things about the publishing you might not have known you also learn about her author clients and they are very interesting.

I’ve worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn’t. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, hell it’s more fun to guess, right? I continue to work in publicity and help authors because at the end of the day I do love books, I love publishing, and I love authors. I hope you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as I enjoyed creating it.

“Oh, and there’s a note for you, too,” the young girl who had been helping with registration said. It was a message from Mac. He changed his flight and left right after his talk. That was it. Nothing else, just, “Decided I needed to head back.” Kate crumpled the note in her hand. Suddenly she heard Delia’s voice wafting around the corner. Kate slipped into an empty conference room. The room was dark; she closed the door, sank into a chair, and cried.
