Three Stars for AN ANONYMOUS GIRL!

I know you all remember Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen’s smash hit (and LibraryReads pick) THE WIFE BETWEEN US from earlier this year. Their second book together, AN ANONYMOUS GIRL, is gearing up to be just as twisty and amazing, now with THREE starred reviews!

“Slickly twisty…The page-turner’s second half whizzes along at a furious pace, exploiting the dual perspectives for maximum tension…MAJOR LEAGUE SUSPENSE.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“For those who relished the creepy stalking in Hendricks and Pekkanen’s THE WIFE BETWEEN US, this unnerving tale will have them rethinking what secrets are safe to share and if morals and ethics really matter when protecting the ones you love.”            Library Journal, starred review

“The co-authors of the mega-bestselling THE WIFE BETWEEN US return with another spooky tale of psychological seduction.”Booklist, starred review

The Poacher’s Son

Not only is Paul Doiron's debut thriller The Poacher's Son receiving rave reviews, we got the pleasure of meeting the author at ALA Midwinter! He signed galleys for eager librarians, and was happy to answer all of their questions. Thanks Paul, and congrats on the following reviews!

PW starred review: "This evocative thriller is sure to put Doiron on many 2010 Must-Read lists!"

Booklist starred review: "One hopes this fine novel is the first in a series starring Warden

Library Journal starred review: "Doiron’s well-written debut is also a taut thriller and a thoughtful examination of the complicated relationship between father and son."

Kirkus Reviews starred review: "Both tender and chilling.”

Talia on the Hulk

I have many embarrassing vices. Eating cupcakes (from a truck), inhaling frozen snickers bars (alone in my apartment), and drooling over puppy dogs and kittens are all very very embarrassing. But, my number one most embarrassing vice is my obsession with celebrity gossip. I visit and PerezHilton daily. (Never never never while in the office. Come on!)

So when I heard that we were publishing Hulk Hogan’s memoir My Life Outside the Ring, I begged for the manuscript. I had Mickey Rourke’s "The Wrestler" on the brain and thought Hulk might deliver a similar story – and you know what – he did well sorta – with a little more glamour, glitz and a few
more self-help books thrown in.

Hulkamania, yellow tights, steroids, leg drops, muscle tears, stabbings by trophy, surprise pregnancies, 12 million dollar homes, suicide attempts... “Brother,” I just kept turning the pages!
