Book News: Jennifer Weiner
I am thrilled to help announce that Jen’s hit novel THEN CAME YOU is coming out in paperback on May 8th. Last summer THEN CAME YOU made waves as one of the top beach reads of the season. An “unexpected” love story, THEN CAME YOU tells the tale of four women and a baby -- and at a time when women are waiting longer to have children and the definition of “family” has changed dramatically, THEN CAME YOU is certain to strike up some provocative debates. With her laugh-out-loud humor, startling tenderness, and spot-on characterizations, Jennifer takes readers into the hearts and minds of women everywhere in a timely story that intertwines themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donorship, parental rights and the definition of motherhood. THEN CAME YOU will be available for purchase at Indiebound, Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Jen will also be going on a BOOK TOUR to celebrating the paperback launch of Then Came You!
On May 8th, Atria will also be publishing SWIM, an original ebook short story by Jennifer Weiner that will be available for free download wherever ebooks are sold. SWIM is originally from Jen's short story collection The Guy Not Taken, and after she spent time in Los Angeles co-producing the ABC Family show, “State of Georgia,” she knew she wanted to continue with the story. SWIM is the inspiration for her forthcoming novel, THE NEXT BEST THING (Atria Books, July 3, 2012). Both Swim and The Next Best Thing are now available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
THE NEXT BEST THING, July 3, 2012: Jen’s highly anticipated new novel The Next Best Thing will be on shelves July 3rd. Set against the fascinating backdrop of the Los Angeles show business culture, with an insider's ear and eye for raunchy writer's rooms, bad behavior backstage and on-set politics, Jennifer Weiner's new novel is a rollicking ride on the Hollywood rollercoaster, and a heartfelt story about what it's like for a young woman to love, and lose, in the land where dreams sometimes come true…
