Episode 105

Not Without Genre

This week, Jeff and Rebecca talk book gluts, sci-fi awards, romance sales, the McSweeney’s kickstarter, Macmillan tries bundling, new books, and much more. This epsiode is sponsored by Scribd, Audible, THE NOVICE by Taran Matharu, and INVINCIBLE by Amy Reed.

Editor’s note: While discussing The Novice, Rebecca incorrectly attributed it to Hachette. It is being published by Feiwel & Friends, a Macmillan imprint.
