I may be the worst self-promoter EVAH.

Yes, the new book is out and I am terribly bad at promoting it! Women's Fiction: A Guide to Popular Reading Interests, co-authored with Nanette Donohue, came out in November 2013 and we couldn't be more pleased!  But more on that, coming soon, I promise.

Right now, I am working on the March 15 issue of Booklist, where we will once again be doing a Women's Fiction spotlight. Yay!  And as I'm choosing the selections for the year's "Top 10"  it occurred to me.. I never posted last year's Top 10 list!  Ack!

So here it is - and look for the 2014 list next month!  And some promo for the new book!  And some promo for the new Women's Fiction Large Print list I'm working on for Thorndike!  

Booklist Magazine's Top 10 Women’s Fiction: 2013.

The top 10 women’s fiction from the last 12 months (reviewed in Booklist between March 15, 2012, and March 1, 2013) cover the spectrum: chick lit to tearjerkers, heavy issues to lighthearted comedy. One of the main appeal factors of this category is that sense of recognition the target audience—yes, women—gets from identifying with the heroines, and these novels deliver something for just about anyone.
