Rachel Zucker in N'Yorker!

SPD was tremendously excited to see a long, lovely article about Rachel Zucker in a magazine so famous it can be found in medical offices everywhere.  The full story is behind a paywall, but we hope subscribers will check it out in full, or else look for it during your next checkup.

Colbert Promotes SPD Author!

As this NY Times article spells out, Colbert has been fighting the Amazon v. Hachette battle on the side of Hachette by pushing author Edan Lepucki's new book. But if Hachette is David to Amazon's Goliath, SPD publisher Nouvella must be the mini-David.  Lepucki's terrific novella on Nouvella Press, If You're Not Yet Like Me, has also been flying off the SPD shelves in the wake of Colbert's campaign.  So it's up to you: support the underdog by getting a copy of California (Hachette), or support the underdog's underdog by also getting her novella!
