If you’ve been following our blog the last few months— or trying to— you may have noticed we’ve been a bit quiet lately. Well, we are back at it so you can look forward to fresh posts on topics you care about. Whether you are a Plural author (or would like to be one) or you are a student or professional in Speech-Language Pathology, Audiology or Otolaryngology looking for information on your field, we promise to post on topics of interest to you. You can look forward to monthly guest posts from experts across these disciplines. This month’s guest post is a great article by Devin McCaslin, author of Electronystagmography/Videonystagmography (ENG/VNG)  that will be up on January 7. We will also be featuring publishing and self-marketing tips for authors, information and updates on professional meetings, and newsworthy items on our authors or their fields.
We are looking forward to a great year in 2013 with an exciting list of new books and other products due to publish, including many new editions of some of our best-known and treasured books.
