A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.
We’ve been planning a ‘Romance’ week on Vulpes for some time, and after dithering for an age, finally decided that, as most of us work better to a deadline, we should just choose a date and go for it.
Someone suggested the week of the 14th of February as an original choice, so here we are ….
Let it not be said that Foxes have no romance in their souls.
Coming up this week, we have two reviews of romances, an overview by agent Broo Doherty of the profound changes in publishing in the last 10 years, an interview with Vulpes favourite Phillipa Ashley and something mysterious for Thursday …..
Monday: Kate frolics in fabulous chick lit with Sofia Khan is NOT Obliged, by Ayisha Malik.
Tuesday: Jackie is pleasantly surprised by Strange Bedpersons by Jennifer Crusie.
Wednesday: We catch up with Phillipa Ashley, who is celebrating ten years as a Romantic Novelist. She talks about her career to date, the pains and pleasures of writing, and putting a fresh spin on a familiar tale.
Thursday: Moira has A Plan for Thursday, but as it may or may not come to fruition, she’s being very secretive about it ….
Friday: We’re joined by agent Broo Doherty of DHH Literary Agency, looking at the changes that have taken place in publishing over the last 10 years.
