Alice Bliss chosen for the Richard and Judy Summer Book Club in the UK
Here’s the big news I’ve been dying to share. Sworn to secrecy until it was announced on May 23rd, and then I was actually in London for the announcement and launch.
ALICE BLISS has been chosen for the Richard and Judy Book Club for Summer 2012 in the UK.
The Richard and Judy Book Club partners with the WHSmith bookshops throughout the UK. This means that Alice Bliss will be prominently displayed, along with the other 9 titles featured, for the entire summer. This is a very popular book club and they have an active Facebook community. They will be rolling out video interviews and podcasts as the summer progresses and I will do a book club Skype chat in August with readers.
Picador very kindly brought me to London for the interviews and hosted a cocktail party at their offices where I got to meet – and I hope, thank properly – the entire crew responsible for this amazing news.
This photo will give you an idea of what this promotion looks like in the bookstores. We took this at Heathrow Airport on our way home where there were five WHSmith bookstores in our terminal.
