News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch — 4/16-4/22

Work’s been pretty busy — fancy that — but I hope to get some non-NPR Books Watch posts rolling soon …

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.
