Rebecca talks Reader's Advisory, blogging, and Women's Fiction on the Circulating Ideas podcast

While this is on the long side, you might be interested to hear me talk about RA, blogging, working for Booklist, and how I came to write my books on Women's Fiction - along with why I am such a champion for the genre. Feel free to skip to about 20:30, which is where I start talking about WF.
(I'll admit it. I'm vain, so I greatly enjoyed listening to myself talk for 40 minutes, hahaha.)



In Defense of Banned Books: There's No Such Thing as a Bad Book

This summer, I had the chance to participate in the ALA Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out. I chose to read a selection from Fifty Shades of Grey, because I believe that no one should have to defend their reading tastes, and while there may poorly written books, there is no such thing as a bad book as long as someone out there enjoys reading it.

Thorndike presents new Women's Fiction Large Print line

So on my trail of self-promotion, let me direct you to another project I'm working on. Thorndike Press is  well-known in library land as the world's leading large print publisher, and last year they asked me to team up with them on a new Women's Fiction line.

I'm so pleased to report that the line launched in January 2014 to great success!  Basically, I hand-select 2 titles per month that will have broad appeal to women's fiction readers, Thorndike acquires the rights for large print, and boom, there you go!

Check out their current digital catalogs here, and flip through the interactive catalogs 'till you see my shining face (usually p. 4-5)
