Floating and Reading....

My L.A. trip was a weekend of nonstop running. Breakfasts on Friday and Saturday morning were at the ungodly hour (at least to me) of 8AM. I know traffic in the city can be out of control, so I was up and out by 7:15. Both days as I drove down Wilshire there was a steady stream lights. Seriously. It's like the city managers know I was born late --- and always run late --- and they had the green lights going like my own little red carpet. Thus I was --- and a drumroll here please --- early both mornings!

The Friday breakfast featured children's authors. Jon Scieszka, the national ambassador for young people’s literature, was on hand for a humorous hello. We all bowed to him. Eoin Colfer was the master of ceremonies, and Judy Blume, Sherman Alexie and Neil Gaiman were the guests. The conversation was spirited --- and a tad off-color in a most humorous way. Colfer could do standup; he is that funny. Blume, Alexie and Gaiman all have written for adults, as well as children and teens, which lent an interesting perspective to their comments. Blume showed a photo of herself at the breakfast 30 years earlier where her co-guests were Dr. Seuss and Maurice Sendak. For the record, Blume looks amazing for 70! For movie buffs, Gaiman showed some previews of the Coraline movie, which is due in theaters in February 2009, and it looks terrific.

Saturday there were two breakfast events, and I chose the one that featured four graphic novel authors. Jeff Smith, Art Spiegelman, Mike Mignola and Jeph Loeb were the guests. Their conversation about the format --- and the melding of prose with art --- was terrific. Spiegelman had a very humorous visual presentation that showed how pictures can tell a story and chronicled his early love of comics. This area of the market is growing rapidly, and we're going to be sharing a lot more with you about graphic novels in the months to come.

Throughout the conference there was lots of talk about digital publishing. I listened to these conversations trying to apply them to our readers. Thus the poll this week asks if you would want to read on a Kindle or a Sony eReader. And there's a second question that asks if you would be more interested in having a handheld electronic reader if the hardcover/e-version were both available simultaneously for the same price. I love gadgets, and still laugh that my first cell phone actually was a little suitcase (think Maxwell Smart), but somehow I have not rushed out to buy one of these devices. And I am trying to figure out WHY. I carry a ton of books when I travel --- which these days can get me over the airline weight limit pretty quickly and even will have me paying for a second bag, which is maddening. Maybe it's because I do not want one more thing that I connect to via battery or a plug in the wall. I want to know what you think about these devices, so answer the poll here.

This might be influencing me too. One of the things I do when walking along a beach, through an airport or down the aisle of an airplane is check out what books other folks are reading. I realized that if readers are reading on a Kindle or a Sony eReader, I have no idea what they are reading. This point was driven home to me by a story a friend told me this week. He flew back from LA last weekend, and the 14-year-old girl seated next to him on the place saw his copy of THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN and was intrigued by it. When he took a nap, he handed it to her and she happily read 150 pages before they landed. He plucked it back from her admonishing her to buy her own copy. Now if he was reading on a Kindle, could that have happened?

For the record, I also am the kind of person who checks out what other people have in their shopping carts at the grocery store. I have been known to leave my cart with the checkout person as I race back for something that I missed that I just "have to have." So much of what we do comes from observing others. Will books lose out if we go all digital? Just something to think about. After all, we never know what someone is listening to on their iPod, do we?

While the book show was quieter than usual this year, which it typically is when it's on the West Coast, it was great to catch up with people and to roam the aisles making notes for fall. Now back to this week...

I told you about this book a few months ago when I read an early galley, so I am thrilled to share that this week we bring you a new Suspense/Thriller feature for New York Times bestselling author Christopher Reich, whose new novel, RULES OF DECEPTION, will be in stores on July 15th. I have read Reich in the past and enjoyed his writing, but this time his plotting and character development is ramped to a whole new level. It reads both quick and sharp. It's a twisting tale of intrigue and deceit as Jonathan Ransom, a doctor with a penchant for adventure travel, finds himself running for his life --- and wondering who the woman he married really is. It's the first in a series, so get on board now. We have 20 copies of RULES OF DECEPTION to give away to readers who would like to preview the book and comment about it. If you are interested, please fill out this form by Friday, June 20th.

Our new Beach Bag title is OUTTAKES FROM A MARRIAGE by Ann Leary, which I have been enjoying. As our reviewer, Terry Miller Shannon, says, "The plot is realistic, well-paced and urgent, as Julia scrambles to save her marriage and herself. Her actions are sometimes outrageous (and occasionally made me chortle), but they are not unbelievable." Among the prizes in this week's contest, a red woven straw bag includes an oversized square towel for two and beach pillows. Read on for details on how to enter.

Our advance readers had great things to say about STONE CREEK by Victoria Lustbader. You can read their feedback here.
You may remember the nice responses we received a couple of weeks ago for A COLD DARK PLACE, Gregg Olsen's new thriller. This week we have Gregg's responses to our advance readers’ questions, which you can see here.

Speaking of the aforementioned eBooks, in celebration of the publication of I SHALL NOT WANT, St. Martin’s Minotaur is offering the first two eBooks of Julia Spencer-Fleming’s A Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne Mystery series: IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER and A FOUNTAIN FILLED WITH BLOOD. The free eBooks will be available at the St. Martin’s Press I SHALL NOT WANT website here. Neither requires a device to read; they are PDF files so it's a great way to get a chance to sample an eBook without a device.

The weather is promising to be hot this weekend. The pool (finally!) is at a temperature where I can contemplate swimming without unpacking my wetsuit. When I am not in the water swimming, I am going to be reading in the hammock or floating on my pool chair. There's a pile of books with my name on it, and I am ready to read them. I hope you have fun with your pile, too!

Carol Fitzgerald ( Talks to Lucie Whitehouse, Author of THE HOUSE AT MIDNIGHT

In this interview with's Alexis Burling, first-time author Lucie Whitehouse discusses how both her current home in London and childhood surroundings in the English countryside inspired her debut novel, THE HOUSE AT MIDNIGHT, and explains how the story has evolved over the course of her six-year writing process. She also elaborates on some of the book's central themes --- like the influence of money, aging, and the differences between forgiving and forgetting --- sheds light on the nuanced personalities and relationships among her characters, and shares details about her next work in progress, THE BED I MADE.

THE HOUSE AT MIDNIGHT by Lucie Whitehouse (Fiction)

Author Talk: Patti Callahan Henry, Author of THE ART OF KEEPING SECRETS

In this interview, Patti Callahan Henry --- the bestselling author of LOSING THE MOON, WHERE THE RIVER RUNS, WHEN LIGHT BREAKS and BETWEEN THE TIDES --- discusses how her interest in Greek mythology surfaced in her latest work of fiction, THE ART OF KEEPING SECRETS, and explains how details in the story were modeled after her own relationship with her children. She also debates the pros and cons of sitting down to write a book before its plot is thoroughly outlined, describes how she manages to balance writing full time with caring for her family, and shares details about her next project, DRIFTWOOD SUMMER.

THE ART OF KEEPING SECRETS by Patti Callahan Henry (Fiction)
What would you do if, two years after your beloved husband died, you found out that he was with another woman at the time of his death? Do you continue to hold faith that he had been true to you, despite evidence to the contrary? That question propels Annabelle Murphy onto a journey to uncover the truth about her fondly remembered marriage, in this compelling and beautifully written page-turner.

Books into Movies for June, July and August
a href="" target="_blank">

The days may be getting longer and the temperatures are on the rise, but what’s summer without the beach reads and the big blockbusters? Luckily, has both of those covered with our annual Beach Bag of Books Giveaway and our latest Books into Movies feature, which offers an array of literary-inspired films sure to please the palates of moviegoers of all tastes and interests.

Those who enjoy thought-provoking dramas will have much to ponder with When Did You Last See Your Father? --- which follows a man coming to terms with his father’s terminal illness --- and Brideshead Revisited, a period piece starring Emma Thompson and Matthew Goode, based on the classic novel by Evelyn Waugh. Sure to provide very different perspectives on immigration and race relations, the films Brick Lane and the controversial Towelhead tackle the heavy topics of culture clashes, familial relationships, sexual awakening and self-discovery.

The Midnight Meat Train, inspired by a short story in Clive Barker’s BOOKS OF BLOOD anthology, and the Vin Diesel sci-fi action/adventure flick Babylon A.D. promise to deliver all the heart-pounding action and spine-tingling suspense audiences expect from a summer escape movie.

Lighter fare for younger viewers in the next few months include the highly anticipated sequel to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, featuring everyone’s favorite denim-clad quartet; Kit Kittredge, starring Abigail Breslin as the young amateur sleuth and aspiring writer from the popular American Girl series; and the Jules Verne-inspired Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D.

This Week's Reviews

THE ENCHANTRESS OF FLORENCE by Salman Rushdie (Fiction)
In his 11th work of fiction, Salman Rushdie has given the breath of life to a world completely alien to our own, and yet, in distinctive ways, rooted in a reality possible for us to recognize. Rushdie is a master teller of tales, and the seductiveness of this delightful work, which blends characters from the historical to the fantastic, is certain to burnish that reputation. Reviewed by Harvey Freedenberg.

Reviewed by Ray Palen.

THE OUTCAST by Sadie Jones (Fiction)
