News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch Contest (3/21-3/27)

No morning brief Friday a.m. since I’m out of the office.


For the past couple weeks I’ve posted this contest Friday afternoon, but since ATC posts their stories in the evening, I end up missing those in the roundup and then I have to add them in over the weekend.  So I think I’m going to post this contest Friday mornings and the week will include all stories from the previous Friday-Thursday (except for this week which is Saturday-Thursday).

The first person to email me the imprints (or houses if no imprint is available) will win the NPR Books Grid for the prior week that includes, in addition to the information below, interviewer, pub date, imprint, post-interview Amazon ranking, pre-interview ranking (if the book was mentioned on Shelf Awareness and I was able to look up the number before the interview), subject category and interview hyperlink.

TOTAL book stories this week: 15

ATC: 15 book stories month to date, 5 week to date

Fresh Air: 8 MTD, 3 WTD

 Morning Edition: 5 MTD, 1 WTD

Tell Me More: 1 MTD, 1 WTD

WeSun: 5 MTD, 3 WTD
