Pride Month is always an exciting time of year here at AdBiblio, as we love sharing new and exciting queer lit with readers. We were thrilled to help Abrams Books connect with the community of YA, romance, and LGBT readers for the release of Grand Slam Romance, from the talented duo Ollie Hicks and Emma Oosterhous.
There’s something so special about reading a debut novel and discovering an author’s unique voice for the first time. And sometimes, you’re so blown away by the initial read that you realize you can’t wait to see what else the author has in store! Such is the case with author Jamila Minnicks and her new novel, Moonrise over New Jessup. We were thrilled to help Algonquin Books reach literary enthusiasts everywhere to promote this powerhouse of a debut!
There’s the stories we tell ourselves, and then there’s the truth. And sometimes they aren’t one and the same. This is exactly what award winning author Stacey D’Erasmo’s examines in her newest novel, The Complicities. We were thrilled to help Algonquin spread the word about this haunting and compelling story that’s a perfect pick for book clubs!
We love that queer representation is being brought to the forefront of comics, graphic novels, and manga. From fan favorites like Heartstopper and The Witch Boy to series like The Legend of Korra and Lumberjanes, LGBTQIA+ creators and stories are more popular than ever. When we heard about the launch of Surely Books – the new line of LGBTQIA graphic novels from ABRAMS – we jumped on board to help spread the word with AdBiblio book advertising!
If you look glance through the reviews for Girlhood by Melissa Febos, you’ll see praise after praise – and for good reason. Febos’s deep dive into the female experience is a true gift for all readers, and might even be considered required reading by some! We loved helping Bloomsbury spread the word about this powerful essay collection.
Baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson once said, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” In 42 Today: Jackie Robinson and His Legacy, we get an in depth look at the important life of Robinson himself, both on and off the field. We were thrilled to help NYU Press spread the word about this essay compilation exploring the legendary baseball icon!
The Slut Squad is fighting back!
In the age of digital privacy and the #metoo movement, Revenge of the Sluts is the book that the world needs right now. With more than 406,000 reads on Wattpad, it’s no surprise that Natalie Walton’s debut is an addictive story that will have readers rooting for the “Slut Squad”. We were thrilled to help Wattpad spread the word about this feminist YA novel!
One of my favorite cities is New York City. Typically I’m there visiting with you lovely folks all throughout the year, but it’s been way too long since I’ve been back. I miss it so much! Luckily, we have books to transport us to our favorite places during this pandemic. Kevin Dann’s Enchanted New York: A Journey along Broadway through Manhattan’s Magical Past is the perfect escape. We were thrilled to help NYU Press with this mystical read!
If there’s one year in my life I’d rather not relive, it would have to be seventh grade. I think my mom would agree. Oh, the drama. Middle school certainly isn’t smooth sailing, but thankfully we’ve got incredible books to help tweens build their confidence and survive those awkward years. One of our favorites: The Nat Enough series from New York Times bestselling author Maria Scrivan! We were thrilled to help Scholastic promote the second novel in the series, Forget Me Nat, to parents of middle schoolers everywhere!
