In the previous issue of The BookBrowse Review
, we spotlighted the diversity of voices from our reviewers who each have their favorite genres to dip into. When determining which books to evaluate for inclusion, we also emphasize diversity in the range of publishing houses we choose from. BookBrowse doesn't just run with the large publishers, we look far and wide and dig deep to carefully curate the books that will truly resonate with you.
For example, this issue includes The Seed Collectors
from Soft Skull, an indie press that is now part of Counterpoint Press based in Berkeley, California; Quiet Neighbors
from Midnight Ink, a small press based in Woodbury, Minnesota, that focuses on mysteries; and Flannery
from Groundwood Books, an independent Canadian children's publisher based in Toronto.
As always, our Beyond the Book section brings many intriguing topics including two articles looking at the process of writing from authors who have long gaps
in the work they produce to bending real life into fiction
. For some added color, take a look at our fascinating facts about orchids
A delightful summer read, This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance!
is now out in paperback as are two thrilling mysteries, Death in Brittany
(staycation, anyone?) and Bad Country
We also bring you a special preview of Ten of this summer's best novels
, selected from the 200+ you'll find on BookBrowse. which in turn are culled from the many thousands of books that will publish.
Finally, we feature a conversation with ROWLS
, a book club of retired teachers in Delaware, Ohio. We hope you enjoy our diverse selection and find a few gems for your own reading pile.
As always, happy reading!
