Top Twos-Day: BEA Buzz – Fabulous Fall Releases

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.

Meet Stefan Bachmann, debut author of The Peculiar, due in September (Greenwillow Books, imprint of HarperCollins). Bachmann’s middle grade gothic-steampunk fantasy is tearing up stat lovers at BEA, comparing his work to Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance series. Hear from Bachmann about his work, The Peculiar:


Also, watch for My Bookstore: Writers Celebrate Their Favorite Places to Browse, Read, and Shop, edited by Ronald Rice with illustrations by Leif Parsons releasing November (Black Dog & Leventhal, Workman) See the complete list of authors here (scroll down). ABA announced, “A portion of My Bookstore authors’ fees is being donated to a fund set up by the publisher to support bookseller scholarships to ABA’s Winter Institute, and a portion of the publisher’s revenue is being given to the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression, the bookseller’s voice in the fight against censorship.” Read an excerpt…

        1. that’s exactly why it’s such a great book, IMHO Eva…from the doc’s perspective, kinda makes you wonder what happened to medical care over the decades.

  1. i read the first two books of the “inheritance” series and lost interest. it dragged too much and took way too long to get to the final conflict resolution in each book. i didn’t bother with the last book. however, that has nothing to do with this kid. congrats, kid. but i still don’t see the attraction to steampunk.

    1. hey rich! appreciate your honesty…tho’ I should mention the books were written for YA audience, who totally adore steampunk 😉
      just saying…

Yes, please, join the conversation.
