Thrilling Sales: 11/5 - 11/11

Thanks to Publisher’s Marketplace!

You know, Borders Group seems to be buying a lot, lately. Is that the new exclusive Borders thingy? And supernatural thrillers seem to be all the rage, these days.

Did you notice the premise for Tom Avitable’s thriller? I think he’s got a point about bureaucracy and the US.

I saw that the other day. That's great news for you. It's nice when it appears your genre is going strong. Sadly, their list of fantasy sales are virtually non-existent. I guess the populations' tastes go in waves.
