News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch — 1/24-2/5

Old news seems to be the news of the week — 7 of 19 book stories featured books more than three months old (perhaps resurrecting hope for our backlist titles)?


 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.
