Here comes my shameless self-promotion!

So back in February I lamented that I hadn't had much time to update this blog, much less tell you all about my newest book on Women's Fiction.

Well, good things come to those who wait, because Booklist's Brad Hooper has taken care of that for me, and will tell you all about it.

"Books by Booklist Authors: Rebecca Vnuk and Nanette Donohue’s Women’s Fiction: A Guide to Popular Reading Interests."  By Brad Hooper.  First published March 15, 2014.

"Women’s fiction is a popular reading interest that continues to grow in appeal and scope but is sometimes difficult to define. Those in need of clarity on this issue should turn to Booklist’s Reference and Collection Management Editor Rebecca Vnuk’s new book, Women’s Fiction: A Guide to Popular Reading Interests (coauthored with public librarian Nanette Donohue, herself a women’s fiction expert). Vnuk’s book is part of the estimable Libraries Unlimited Genreflecting Advisory series, and it not only follows the series format but also lives up to the series’ high standards of information presentation and readers’-advisory guidance."

"When asked if the audience for her book is librarians or public library readers, she answers—just as we expected, having taken in all that the book presents—both!"

"Anyone interested in reading, or charged with recommending, women’s fiction should consult this book. It’s expertly done."
