Fiction: Brown, Danielewski, Edwards, Eggers, Fagan, McCall Smith, O’Farrell, & Steiner | Xpress Reviews
Worth the wait from Brown; Part 3 of Danielewski’s tale is highly recommended; a debut with a strong sense of time and place; for fans of historical fiction and murder mysteries; Eggers’s latest is seamlessly written; Fagan has written a hopeful tale about human connections; a winning collection from McCall Smith; fine new offering from the gifted O’Farrell
Trends in the romance genre and readership are evolving as quickly as the technology. Direct access to a huge variety of new print books and ebooks is exciting for voracious romance readers. At the same time, the ability to control the publishing process and market books directly to interested readers is exciting for emerging and established romance writers.
