We're very excited about the paperback release of Ann Leary's THE GOOD HOUSE, and rightfully so: it's being featured in the New York Times Book Review Paperback Row column (10/13 issue)!
Kaite Stover of Kansas City (MO) Public Library even included it in her recent Booklist article "She Drinks: Women and Booze."
Our friends at Picador created this nice e-card which we wanted to share with you. You can even download it to share with your patrons, too! Click "Read More" to find out how.
Booklist has posted their picks for The Year’s Best Crime Novels: 2012!
They admit, "It gets harder and harder to pick the year’s best crime fiction. There is so much outstanding work in this ever-expanding genre that it’s confounding even to know where to start."
We totally agree. However, we think they found some great books to feature this year including two of our favorites, THE DEVIL SHE KNOWS by Bill Loeflem which they call, "suspenseful and remarkably textured," and IRON HOUSE by John Hart which has "beyond-genre depth!"
They also listed their Top Five Debut Crime Novels including Rick Gavin's RANCHERO which has "pitch-perfect" dialogue!Read more
If you missed Booklist's "Beyond Bestsellers: High-Demand Mysteries in Libraries" webinar, then you missed some very enthusiastic mystery recommendations from our very own, Talia, but don't fret! The webmasters over on the Booklist site just posted an archived recording of the entire presentation (find it here).
Readers want more than just bestsellers, says Readers' Advisory expert and Booklist columnist Joyce Saricks, and librarians have an obligation to alert their patrons to wonderful authors who don't necessarily top the sales charts. Saricks will share her discoveries about what really circulates and how librarians can help spread the news. Representatives from four publishers—Macmillan, Severn House, AudioGO, and Felony & Mayhem—will preview the best titles from their forthcoming lists. Booklist Online Senior Editor Keir Graff moderates.
If you saw our awesome cover ad on the May 1st issue of Booklist, thanks for stopping by! (And thank you even if that's NOT how you found us!) Please take a closer look at all the great new mysteries and thrillers which were featured.
And, as always, don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
