The Book Publicity Blog

News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch — 3/12-3/18

I helped out with the AV at a terrific online publicity and marketing panel last night at the AAP / Association of American Publishers hosted by the WNBA / Women’s National Book Association.  I will (hopefully!) summarize the talk in a post next week, but you can also check #wnba318 for the Twitter roundup or moderator @SueGreenbergPR’s Book Buzz site for the video.  Also, panelist @abbystokes lists the various websites mentioned during the panel on her site Abby & Me.


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, genre, 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.

* indicates the interview is a rebroadcast.
