Hot Book Club Titles For Fall From BEA

BY admin, MAY 26, 2010 | PERMALINK

This morning at BEA a group of industry professionals met to discuss the hot book club titles for fall.

Even before the presentation began, the room was abuzz with energy. It was barely 10 am and already conference attendees were weighed down with bags of books and pamphlets. However, they were thrilled to see that already laid out on their chairs was a convenient carrying bag and yet more books. Among the titless waiting for attendees were Brooklyn by Colm Toibin and Little Bee by Chris Cleave - both books surrounded by incredible buzz. Any booklover knows that when it comes to books, you can never have too many.

The panel was moderated by Carol Fitzgerald of ReadingGroupGuides.com and President of BookReportNetwork.com. Representatives from Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins and Avon, Penguin Group USA Random House Macmillan and Hachette Book Group all brought their favorite picks for fall to the table. Although each only had nine minutes to speak, they were well prepared and also distributed a handout of their powerpoint presentation.

BY admin, MAY 25, 2010 | PERMALINK
 

Author Maggie Casper headed to the wild west to for her latest historical erotica e-book, Shotgun Rider

RT Assistant Web Editor Whitney Sullivan read Shotgun Rider and called it "a good read for historical erotica romance fans!"

Sherry Thomas Reflects On Secret Identities

BY admin, MAY 24, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Sherry Thomas reflects on the thought "I never knew that about you" in honor of her May release, His At Night.

 

This past Saturday I scrolled through the available titles at the Red Box nearest my house and was thrilled to discover that they had in stock The September Issue, a behind-the-scenes documentary on the production of the September 2008 issue of Vogue magazine (the September issue being the most important issue in any given year).

I don’t read Vogue — my fashion tastes aren’t that haute. But I have certainly heard of Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, often described as the most powerful woman in the $300 billion fashion industry. Moreover, I can easily identify her — with her trademark bob and her shades — in a line-up.

Ms. Wintour is well aware of her power and unhesitant about using it. I find her slightly scary and downright fascinating — so of course I relished The September Issue, filled with scene after scene of La Wintour being La Wintour.
