News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch Contest 7/11-7/17

No post yesterday because I took the day off.  I did things like sleep in, nap and cook.  I discovered meat that had been in my freezer for a year, but the label always says “Use or Freeze By” (July 7, 2007, in this case), so I took a chance and made pasta sauce.

Here are the NPR interviews for this week.  Anyone who emails me the imprints of all the books listed (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), and interview hyperlink.
