Another Alaskan author a New York Times bestseller
Although Alaska Book Week is still three months away, it's never too soon to celebrate the success of Alaska authors. And they are really making a name for themselves these days! In the run-up to our annual celebration of Alaskan writers and their books, we'll be sharing news of publications and successes - stay tuned.
Last week, Haines author Heather Lende learned that the ebook version of her first book, If You Lived Here I'd Know Your Name, had appeared at No. 17 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Read the full story and offer Heather your congratulations when you next see her (or visit her blog for the latest in her life and literary world). She reports that her dogs are quite pleased but Oprah hasn't called yet.
