  1. What did you think of the podcast episode I assigned to you this week? How do you think someone who is trying to land a book deal could use traditional AND social media coverage to his or her advantage? How can an individual show a publishing company that they deserve a book deal? How can he or she prove that his or her book will sell?
  2. With what you heard in the podcast and what you’ve learned from the text, how do you feel about traditional media as a leveraging tool in business? (Is traditional media as important as it once was?) How do you feel about social media as a leveraging tool? Will a person (these days) have a better chance of proving their professional worth through traditional media, social media, or both?
