If there’s one thing I can truly appreciate, it’s a kick-ass female lead in a fantasy series. Katniss Everdeen. Zélie Adebola. Feyre Archeron. Just to name a few. And now I’ve got a new one to add to the list: Winnie Wednesday from The Luminaries! We were thrilled to help Tor Books promote this heart-pounding fantasy from bestselling author Susan Dennard.
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!
For so many of us, there really is something special about Grandmas. For me, it was spending hours in the kitchen making big Sunday dinners, and binge watching The Bold and the Beautiful (still true to this day!). Something about Grandma by Tania de Regil is a gorgeous picture book that celebrates that special bond between grandchild and grandmother. We loved helping Candlewick share this heartfelt book with the world, just in time for Grandparents’ Day!
Let me shout it louder for the people in the back…TRAILS NOT SCALES! Connecting with nature is something everyone should be able to do, no matter their size or ability. In Fat Girls Hiking: An Inclusive Guide to Getting Outdoors at Any Size or Ability, author Summer Michaud-Skog creates a safe space for people of all body types to find joy in the outdoors. We were thrilled to promote such an empowering and inclusive book!
The year was 2001. The movie: Summer Catch. I think I watched it 4 or 5 times that year going into high school. Flash forward to 2005, and I couldn’t get enough of the movie Fever Pitch. So it all adds up to why I was so excited about promoting a baseball romance! We loved helping Wattpad Books use AdBiblio book advertising to promote Caroline Richardson’s super fun and steamy novel, Out of His League.
I, like so many, am a complete sucker for a WWII era book. Every story of bravery and courage, especially when deeply researched and based on real historical events, is a harrowing yet uplifting reminder of the extraordinary heroes that have come before us. NY Times bestselling author Sharon Cameron is fantastic at writing such stories, like in her YA novels The Light in Hidden Places and Bluebird. We loved helping Scholastic use targeted book advertising to spread the word about these inspiring reads!
I’m a complete sucker (get it?) for book club stories. Especially ones with badass heroines who are fighting off evil. Sure, it’s not exactly The Jane Austen Book Club, but The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix is the perfect read for those seeking a fun, dark, gory, blood-sucking book club pick. See how our online book advertising helped Quirk Books spread the word about this award winning horror novel – now available in paperback!
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!
Sure, children’s books are for children – but let’s be honest, us adults love them too! And it’s been a while since I could relate to a kids’ book as much as I could to Wolfboy by Andy Harkness. Why? Because it’s about something all of us deal with from time to time (or, for me –most days) –– being HANGRY. We loved helping Bloomsbury spread the word about this little wolf on the search for a snack!
