Happy Monday, librarians! Welcome to the party (read: work week).
Today we're bringing you the good news about a few very special debuts.
- First of all, congratulations to Darynda Jones! The Romance Writers of America selected her debut, FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT, as the 2012 RITA Winner for Best First Book! The first three books in this series starring part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper Charley Davidson are available now from St. Martin's Press with a fourth coming soon! See all of this year's RITA winners here.
- If your patrons are looking for high-adventure of the steampunk variety with a Japanese twist, we're giving away galleys of STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff. It's a swashbuckling debut that Publishers Weekly named their Pick of the Week!
Talia and the cats are still unpacking and adjusting to the new place.
To her great delight, whilst out adventuring in her new neighborhood Talia popped into the local Barnes & Noble and spotted a shelf almost entirely dedicated to St. Martin's Griffin titles!
We've been spending a lot of time getting excited about Griffin's stellar list of young adult titles coming in 2012 and considering the number of hits we get on our new Books for Teens: Class of 2012 blog post, we're not the only ones!
If you're also looking forward to these titles, you've got a new place to keep updated on the action because Griffin Teen is now on Facebook! Go on, take a peek at their page. They post videos, excerpts, updates, bonus stories, notes from authors, and more.
And, of course, we encourage you to hit that Like button to stay in the loop.Read more
