“What’s a buzz book?”
I got the impression I was supposed to know, but when my editor, Melissa Singer, told me Benefit of the Doubt was a 2015 Buzz Book, I didn’t have a clue what she was talking about.
I do now.
Each year, Publishers Marketplace selects a limited number of titles to feature as buzz books. These titles are chosen as those likely to “top both bestseller and best book of the year lists.” For Spring/Summer 2015, a total of forty titles were selected. Benefit of the Doubt was among the eleven titles from debut authors.
I’m honored, to say the least, and forever grateful to Melissa and all the folks at Forge Books who have shown such amazing faith and support in this book. For more on the selection of Benefit of the Doubt and the other 39 titles, follow this link to Publishers Marketplace Buzz Books, 2015.
