A couple of weeks ago, SAS Press acquisitions editor Shelley Sessoms gamely agreed to participate in SAS Publishing's first ever "live" Facebook discussion. Shelley is an all-star author recruiter with an average RBI (real book interest) of acquiring 40 book proposals a year. Many SAS and JMP users, as well as business leaders, know her. However, since Shelley can't go on the road for every single conference that SAS is going to this year--we thought a virtual Q&A merited a try.
Admittedly, for all of its attractive offerings, Facebook isn't the ideal place to host an online chat (unless you don't mind hitting the "refresh" button continuously to view the real time conversation). And while we would have liked more active contact with some of our page's 4,000 + fans, we ended up with some valuable content. Here's a snapshot of the 30 minute chat with Shelley. To view the discussion in its entirety, visit our SAS Publishing Facebook page!
Stay tuned for an announcement about an upcoming live 30 minute Twitter discussion with Shelley Sessoms and one of our SAS authors!
