Yesterday I spent a delightful afternoon at the Association of American Publishers, Inc. (AAP) Indie Book Buzz 2013 luncheon, where AAP member publishing representatives highlighted their best forthcoming 2013 books.
The program opened with author Elizabeth Kiem presenting her debut novel, Dancer Daughter Traitor Spy, the story of a young ballerina with psychic abilities who defects to Brooklyn with her father after the disappearance of her mother in Russia. Kiem, a dancer herself who lived in Moscow for several years, shared her writing process in words, photos, and music. The novel, published by Soho Teen, will be available on August 13th.
In future blog posts, I will feature many of the new titles showcased by AAP publishers at the luncheon, and will spotlight the ARCs I received in my May 5th Sunday Weekly Book Recap. In the meantime, here's the list of publishers (in order of presentation) who participated in Indie Book Buzz 2013:
Kensington Publishing Corp.
New York Review of Books
Black Dog & Leventhal
