Barnes and Noble selects Red Sky In Morning as Discovery book
RED SKY IN MORNING has been selected by Barnes and Noble for its Discover Great New Writers campaign. This will see the book on prime display in the US over the winter holiday period and is a huge spotlight for the book there. Of the 10 books chosen, just three others are fiction, so feeling very privileged.
From the Barnes & Noble website: “Founded in 1990, the Discover Great New Writers program highlights books of exceptional literary quality from authors at the start of their careers.
A small group of Barnes & Noble bookseller volunteers convenes year-round to review submissions to the program and handpick titles for our promotion, currently featured at 700+ Barnes & Noble and 100 prominent Barnes & Noble College Bookstores, and on www.bn.com/discover.
Annually, we recognize two of our exceptional writers with the Discover Great New Writers Award (one each for Fiction and Non-fiction). In addition to a $10,000 prize, we promote the winning titles extensively in our stores and online.
Previous recipients of the Discover Award include Monica Ali, Eric Blehm, Tracy Chevalier, Joshua Ferris, Ben Fountain, Chang-rae Lee, Elizabeth McCracken, David Sheff, and Hampton Sides, among others.
