Prepub Alert, December 6

This week’s edition of Prepub Alert offers 30 titles publishing mainly in June, starting with a surprise from David Baldacci in fiction. Nonfiction ranges from Michael Lewis’s dependably tough study of the global consequences of easy credit to the further escapades of Simon Tofield’s cartoon cat. In addition

  • Check out the latest collection of spring poetry titles
  • Find out which former President is rising on the best sellers list
  • And get ready for the forthcoming tie-in to LJ‘s December collection development feature on jewelry making

And of course there’s book buzz as it happens throughout the week.
