Seen This Week 12/27/10

Greetings, readers! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. It's hard to believe that this is my final column of 2010. Where did our year go? In any case, authors around the world dived back to work on their respective projects.

Gary Ponzo interviewed best-selling author Janet Evanovich as part of his "Five Questions For..." series on the Strong Scenes website.

Viking/Penguin USA announced the purchase of Krys Lee's debut short story collection, Drifting House, as part of a two-book deal after an auction between eight publishers.

Mat Jackson received additional five-star reviews on his debut novel So Shall Ye Reap. The book has also reached double digits in sales since its October 2010 release. Also stop by and visit the new fansite to read the latest in Mat's success.

Authors On Show's Weekly Article writer Suzannah Burke is working on a feature article for our site, and is searching for photographs of authors holding their published book.Photographs can be emailed to, with "Pictures for Weekly Article" in the subject line. She anticipates the article posted by the second week of January 2011.

A review of Zetta Brown's literary short story "Devil Don't Want Her" was recently posted on Cheri Reich's Surrounded by Books Reviews site.

An article by Ilie Ruby appeared in the December 21 edition of New York Times' Motherlode blog.

Tracy Slater reported that her article about the Japanese trend of eating KFC on Xmas (seriously) and a new contender for the fast-food-fowl Yuletide crown, appeared last week on CNNGo.

Talia Carner's short story piece, Blueprint For The Second Decade, which deals with how to overcome the plight of women around the globe, was accepted by AOL. The story is slated to be run between now and the new year, and expected to receive 500,000 hits.
