EarlyWord Galley Chatting!

EarlyWord Galley Chatting!

If you missed the EarlyWord Galley Chat on Twitter yesterday, I highly recommend you go back and take a look at the conversation (just search hashtag #ewgc). 

What's that you say? You're not on Twitter? BIG MISTAKE! These monthly chats are an exceptional way to hear about which galleys other librarians are reading, have read, or plan to read and what made them pick up those books. It's the perfect first look at forthcoming titles.

A few excellent, upcoming Macmillan titles were discussed yesterday. I'll highlight a few for you here:

GRANDDAD, THERE'S A HEAD ON THE BEACH by Colin Cotterill

SO DAMN LUCKY by Deborah Coonts
