Top Twos-day: onsourcing and downsizing

Each Tuesday I’ll bring two items or people into focus. They may be books, authors, lists, whatever turned my head, landing on my radar. Stay tuned as each TOP TWOS-DAY unfolds…

Fast becoming THE site, Sourcebooks elbows into the market, boasting about their authors here. Did you know they signed on Olympic gold medalist and New York Times Bestselling Author Kristi Yamaguchi? Her picture book, “It’s a Big World, Little Pig!” released in March, continues to climb the charts. Best news? They accept Children’s and Young Adult , Fiction, and Nonfiction… unagented submissions, read their guidelines.

The buzz today is about A.J. Jacobs, Esquire’s editor at large, and his latest release (4/10/12) Drop Dead Healthy: One Man’s Humble Quest for Bodily Perfection. (Simon & Schuster). After his near-death promise: get healthy or die trying, he discovered what works, humor. Wait, that’s not what he said…read NPR’s take on Jacobs’ chronicle. His quest really began when he found himself in the hospital, wife whispering she didn’t want to be widowed so young. He vowed to find the secret to longevity, searching everywhere and consulting “…an army of experts— sleep consultants and sex clinicians, nutritionists and dermatologists.”  The rhythm and pace will keep you entertained as Jacobs unmasks, baring his bodacious bod.
