Around the Web

PW covers a story that can only be filed under Why Didn't We Think of This Sooner? The article is about BookReels, an interactive website that allows publishers and authors to post multi-media visuals such as animated book covers and book trailers. The new site is being touted as "MTV for books."

Even Stephen Colbert has weighed in on the Amazon/Hachette kerfluffle. See Salon's take on it.

As if in reply, the Huff Post provides a defense of the retail giant, slyly titled "Sympathy for the Devil."

Literary agent  and all-round guru Janet Reid provides a thoughtful answer to the question: Should I be putting my unpublished work on the web?

Have a great weekend, everyone! (And happy writing.)

A Jersey girl born and bred, bestselling author Rosie Genova left her heart at the shore, which serves as the setting for much of her work. Her new series, the Italian Kitchen Mysteries, is informed by her deep appreciation for good food, her pride in her heritage, and her love of classic mysteries, from Nancy Drew to Miss Marple. Her debut novel, Murder and Marinara, was named a Best Cozy of 2013 by Suspense Magazine and is a 2014 Daphne Award finalist. An English teacher by day and novelist by night, Rosie also writes women’s fiction as Rosemary DiBattista. She lives in central New Jersey with her husband and the youngest of her three sons.
