The journalists aren't likely to know if the publicity people organising
these interviews, online chats etc don't tell them. Blame the publicists if
you must; I imagine DWJ has some contractual obligations to promote the
book, but you'd have hoped the publicists might have been a little more
thoughtful... Mind you, the way things are in publishing houses these days
(high turn over of staff, esp in publicity and marketing) the publicists
themselves might not have a clue. Sounds like Diana needs a good
dragon/agent to fend some of these more strenuous engagements off!
