George Orwell’s 1984 On Top (Published in 1949)...

Feb 4, 2017 by

It’s been an interesting week in adult fiction sales because of the recent climate in regards to US politics. Because of this, a book from 1949 is the biggest seller in adult fiction this week. It’s George Orwell’s dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four (also know better as 1984), with over 40,000 in sales (more than half of them are in print). Wonder why they rise in Nineteen Eighty-Four? If you read the synopsis or the plot, you may understand why.     The typical big name authors are selling big, such as Danielle Steel, James Patterson and Debbie Macomber with over 25,000 in sales. For romance, Nora Roberts’ Dark Witch, Johanna Lindsey’s Make Me Love You, and Jodi Thomas’ Wild Horse Springs all sold over 10,000 this week. Lori Foster, Jill Shalvis, Fern Michaels, and...

Danielle Steel and Veronica Roth Rise to the Top, But Not Karen Marie Moning...

Jan 28, 2017 by

With the New York Times cutting some of their best seller lists (click here for details), I will continue to report best selling adult fiction from Publishers Weekly, and go back to the USA Today list, including those books doing well at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and Smashwords.     Danielle Steel continues to do well with The Apartment, with over 25,000 in sales. Veronica Roth’s newest release, Carve the Mark, sold 19,500 in print for it’s first week, which is a respectable number. But Karen Marie Moning, and her publisher must be disappointed that her latest, Feversong, barely sold 7,000 in hard cover, unless the digital sales are more than triple print. If not, what does that mean for KMM’s series? Romance authors, such as Catherine Anderson, Fern Michaels, and Diana Palmer are...

The Dare and the Doctor Book Review *Kate Noble*...

Jan 26, 2017 by

  Dr. Rhys Gray and Miss Margaret Babcock are friends—strictly friends. But over the course of the year, as they exchange dozens of letters, they share personal details that put them on the path to something more. When Dr. Gray helps Margaret realize her dearest dream and she comes to his defense in the uproar that follows, it seems that their connection cannot be denied. But will their relationship stand the scruples of society and jealous intendeds, or are they destined to be only friends, and nothing more? . A Kate Noble romance is full of warmth and cheer, much like an older Julia Quinn historical romance. So is the case with The Dare and the Doctor (Winner Takes All #3). We have a very independent minded heroine who loves all things flowers and...

Author Spotlight: Mary Torjussen on Her Road to Publication (Gone Without A Trace)...

Jan 25, 2017 by

I’d always written as a child, but once I became a teenager I became self-conscious of what I was writing and worried that someone else would see it. I think I knew even then that that first draft shouldn’t be seen by anyone! It was only when my children were in junior school that I decided I would take it seriously and write a novel. I aimed for 80,000 words and wrote 1,000 words a day over 80 days – just one long, hot summer and a book was born. We went camping in France in August that year and as the children cycled around with their new friends, I sat outside and edited the book. My brother’s friend from university was an agent in a huge, prestigious agency in London and, knowing no...
