BookSavvy Author News Roundup — Late October

In anticipation of November, BookSavvy is taking a cue from one of our newest authors — Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson — and turning our attention to what we are thankful for. We want to shout out all of the amazing book bloggers and journalists who put in countless hours of (sometimes unpaid) work to provide reading suggestions to thousands. We’d like to thank radio hosts and producers (we’re looking at you, Louie Cronin! Congrats on your launch!) who stay long after the shift to help get books into the hands of readers. Here’s a look at some of the media that reminds us of how good things are:

  • BuzzFeed selected Virginia Simpson’s The Space Between as one of 5 memoirs that “remind us of the meaning of family”.
  • Quartz featured Christian Felber’s points on how fear can be a force of evil in politics, and how we can use it moving forward to make things better.
  • The Huffington Post featured a new piece by Peggy Payne in her recurring column there, all about how religious women are embracing sexuality.
  • Harvard Business Review published Diane Mulcahy’s piece on why she tells her MBA students to stop looking for a job and join the Gig Economy.
  • The Richmond Times-Dispatch featured Maggie Lamond Simone as an expert on daily life with OCD.
  • The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette covered Diane Mulcahy’s message that full-time jobs are on their way out, being supplanted by gig work.
  • WCCO CBS in Minnesota interviewed Diane Mulcahy on why you should stop looking for a job, and what to do instead.
  • Blog Talk Radio interviewed Louie Cronin in their “Champagne Sundays” segment. The champagne is not just figurative! This is a fun one.
  • Terri Giuliano Long Blog celebrated an entire week of Louie Cronin’s new novel, Everyone Loves You Back, complete with interviews, excerpts, and more!
  • Cassandra M’s Place reviewed Maggie Lamond Simone’s Body Punishment, calling it a book that can be used “to help healing and learning”.
  • TheBabySpot.ca ran a piece by Susan Peirce Thompson on how to work with your kids on their candy consumption this Halloween season.
