Free-e-book promotes fall releases with excerpts
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Summer is weeks away, but the fall book season has already started.
“Buzz Books 2012” is a free e-book that came out Monday and features excerpts from 33 upcoming works, including Neil Young’s memoir, fiction by Dennis Lehane and Junot Diaz and a young adult novel by David Levithan.
“Buzz Books 2012” was compiled and released by Publishers Lunch, an influential online industry newsletter. The book’s title refers to the “Buzz Books” panel at publishing’s annual convention, BookExpo America, when editors discuss anticipated titles for the fall. This year’s BookExpo takes place in early June.
Others works excerpted in the new e-book include fiction by Mark Helprin and Barbara Kingsolver, a memoir by Rhoda Janzen and a debut novel by J.R. Moehringer, author of the best-selling memoir “The Tender Bar.”
