Jumpin’ Jehosophat! We’re already checking out the JUNE titles! What the…?????
Yes. June. The midpoint of the year. WOWZERS! We hope it’s treating you right. If not, well here are some cool books that might make you feel better.
Bizness: We try to post Hot off the Press and Coming Attractions the first or second Friday of each month. If you’re an author, publisher, or reader who keeps up on these matters and you’d like to make sure that a book makes it onto the lists, just drop us a line at the “Contact” page above BEFORE the first Friday of the month. And we’re not all-seeing/all-knowing (hate to burst your bubble), so we miss titles. If you know of some, drop us a line.
Keep in mind we stop updating these blog posts about a week after posting, but we do maintain a static page with three months of info (and yes, that page is updated), and we can add stuff there, too.
So. Start making your “I MUST HAVE IT” lists!
