We’ve published all manner of articles in The Huffington Post Books section in 2012. We’ve followed the machinations of Amazon and the publishing industry; we’ve tracked mergers and new launches, self-publishing and award winners. Our ongoing series Where I Like To Read, Rejected Covers and Writer Wednesday continue to feature some of the hottest names around. We’ve published blogposts and excerpts from some of the biggest names in the business.
We attended BookExpo America, the Frankfurt Book Fair, the LA Festival of Books, the National Book Awards and the National Book Festival. Our Book Club debuted this year with bustling author events in Boston, Seattle, New York as well in Google Hangouts. Our Twitter feed and Facebook page have become must-visit hubs of community conversation and activity.
Yet we’re just getting started. We have all manner of exciting plans for 2013, including… well, that would be telling. Let’s just say, you’re going to want to keep reading with us for the best in book coverage, reviews, opinion and more.
