I was just scanning Publisher’s Marketplace for interesting book news, and I had to laugh at Melissa Horozewski’s deal with Running Press: Austentatious Crochet, “crochet patterns for lovers of Jane Austen.” I’m not a crocheter myself, but I can see some BookPage readers getting excited about this one.
Listed below that deal was another one that had me cracking up: I’m Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship. If that title has you raising eyebrows, maybe this will change your mind. The book is
an anthology of humorous essays about dogs from bestselling writers, including Rita Mae Brown, Laurie Notaro, Carol Leifer, Jen Lancaster, and Tony Award winner Jeff Marx, with the full support of the Humane Society.
Memoirist Wade Rouse is editing, and on his blog he wrote that the goal of the collection is to “raise awareness and funds for strays/shelters/The Humane Society by making people laugh.” NAL is publishing.
Also in The Book Case: Read about Trisha’s clever title pick from a couple weeks ago.
