A year ago, Prepub Alert formally launched as a blog, complete with weekly alert. Immediately, we began thinking about how to upgrade it. Since then, we’ve expanded coverage, added and subtracted features, and dropped the alert for a newsletter format. Now we’re relaunching with a new look and a renewed sense of purpose.
The hunt for good books of interest to librarians‚ and book folks in general‚ has led me farther afield, even as the publishing industry undergoes upheaval that will radically alter the landscape. At one time Prepub Alert featured 60 or 70 titles a month; now I sometimes cover that many titles in a week. Well, I always said I wanted to be a writer when I grew up.
Herewith the last burst of April 2012 titles.
