Changes Afoot for Prepub Alert

Here are the first big titles from December, as usual a thinner month owing to the holidays (though several holiday mysteries are presented). In June, this newsletter is generally taken over by the ALA galley guide, but because LJ cannot offer one this time ’round, next Monday you’ll see a roundup of key titles from key publishers at the show. There’s no need to register in advance.

Meanwhile, big changes are afoot with LJ‘s e-newsletters. As of next Monday, June 18, Prepub Alert will be combined with LJ Reviews and  other book news stories into a single weekly e-newsletter reflecting LJ‘s strength in book coverage. Look for LJ Reviews+ in your mailbox (no need to resubscribe) and lots of continuing Prepub coverage.
