News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch Contest (3/28-4/3)

Ellen Silva called a couple days ago and mentioned that I may be missing some books stories.  (She pointed to a couple ATC  pieces I hadn’t picked up.)  This weekend I’m going to adjust my feeds so I should see all the books stories (many, but apparently not all of which are posted to the NPR Books page).  For now, below is what was posted to the books page.

The way the contest works is 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.
