We had a big launch on Friday for the latest editions of our free ebook samplers, BUZZ BOOKS 2015: Spring/Summer and BUZZ BOOKS 2015 Young Adult: Spring — with national press, thousands of downloads, and excited reviews from the fan base of passionate readers who look forward to these previews. As a reminder, you can get the complete “trade versions” of Buzz and Buzz YA directly from our site as EPUB files, or if you prefer, both titles are “read now” downloads at NetGalley — and you can find each one on Edelweiss. Or to get the consumer version on any platform (and share with readers and fans), both […]
Today we publish new editions of our popular free ebook samplers, BUZZ BOOKS 2015: Spring/Summer and BUZZ BOOKS 2015 Young Adult: Spring. (The last time around we experimented with a separate YA collection and it was a clear hit, so Buzz Books YA is a standing part of the line going forward.) With 65 pre-publication excerpts between them, they are great preparation for next month’s Winter Institute 10 (over a dozen WI authors are sampled) as well as the full publishing season ahead. Most Lunch readers will want the full “trade versions,” which include detailed marketing and publicity info on […]
We will formally publish the two newest editions of our sought-after ebook samplers Buzz Books 2015: Spring/Summer and Buzz Books 2015 Young Adult: Spring on Friday — in preparation for Winter Institute and the season ahead. For an early look, however, both titles are available now and highlighted in the new releases carousels in the iBooks Store.
Lily King’s EUPHORIA — one of our Publishers Lunch Spring/Summer Buzz Books — tops Amazon’s best books of June list as their Spotlight pick, along with Courtney Maum’s I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN WITHOUT YOU as the Featured Debut. More curious, however, is that two of the titles the bookseller’s “editors have hand picked as this month’s best” are not actually available for sale on the site: Megan Abbott’s THE FEVER (Little, Brown) and Tom Rob Smith’s THE FARM (Grand Central) are “currently unavailable” as part of Amazon’s standoff with Hachette Book Group.
As usual, our free Buzz Books samplers both open with Sarah Weinman’s broader surveys of over 100 notable books from the forthcoming season. We’ll be running portions of those overviews the next few days to help round out your BEA radar — and you can read the complete previews anytime in the new editions of Buzz Books. Download yours now from any major ebookstore — including Kindle, iBookstore, or Nook — or get the “trade edition” here as an EPUB or through NetGalley or Edelweiss. With thousands of downloads already, it’s the “big book” of BEA, letting you grab 30 […]
We have everything you need for an efficient, informed, galley-packed convention. We have continued to update our handy master BEA single-spreadsheet schedule — including the just-announced Author Hub events. Go to publun.ch/BEAschedPM. For PM members, our Party Planner lists 22 different celebrations across four evenings. Best of all, you can read your way through over 50 big fall and winter books with the substantial excerpts included in our Buzz Books 2014: Fall/Winter and the instant-hit spinoff, Buzz Books 2014: Young Adult. 16 of the featured adult authors will be appearing at BEA — as will another 16 of the featured […]
