Jun 17, 1997

June 17, 1997

On Tuesday, June 17, best-selling author Sandra Brown visited THE BOOK REPORT to discuss her latest novel, FAT TUESDAY, as well as the phenomenal writing career which has seen each of her novels become more successful than the last. TBR's BookpgLiz was our interviewer and BookpgZena our unflappable host.

1997

When we caught up with Sandra Brown, she was just coming off of a long morning of telephone interviews. Still, despite the poking and prodding of nosy journalists, Sandra was a delight. Southern women do have a certain special charm --- and Brown embodies it. Stories about flashers at a recent trip to Mardi Gras and her 2,000-pound "pet" steers sound so much better in her mellifluous, Texan voice. So as you read, imagine warmth coming across in every word.

Interview: Nelson DeMille, author of Plum Island

1997

We've all seen Nelson DeMille's books in the paperback racks. They're prominently displayed, and people buy them like crazy. It would be easy to conclude that he's a "bestseller writer" --- as if that were a bad thing. Well, he is. And much more. Read on.....

Interview: John Grisham, author of The Partner

Feb 12, 1997

To celebrate the release of John Grisham's latest legal thriller, THE GUARDIANS, we revisit an interview we conducted with the bestselling author back in 1997 prior to the publication of THE PARTNER. We love that his wit and brisk style held up over  22 plus years. Carol Fitzgerald, the president and co-founder of The Book Report Network, explains the significance of this interview and how much Grisham has meant to the company:

"Back in 1996, when we started The Book Report (the original name for Bookreporter), I vowed that we would not meet with publishers until we had been live for a few months. I wanted to show them, not tell them, what we were going to do. Jesse Kornbluth and I started making the rounds in early 1997, and when we met with Grisham’s publisher, they were intrigued as our website was something new and they wanted to do something special with us. A couple of weeks later, they called and offered us the first online interview with Grisham for THE PARTNER, as well as the first online excerpt. It helped to put us on the map, and we remain ever grateful to him for that."
