What I am Reading Now: Love, Wylie

Love Wylie does not fit comfortably in the segment of the book market occupied by many of Elisa Lorello's other books. Elisa's agents and editors, in fact, did not know how to categorize the book so they advised against publishing it. They observed that Love Wylie does not fit either with "Women's Commercial Fiction/Contemporary Romance" or with "Young Adult" fiction.

So Nice!

"We wanted some kind of logo item for This House of Books," explained Carrie La Seur, Board President for This House of Books. "The vast sea of Made-in-China this and that didn't seem to match the character of a community-owned bookstore, prompting us to look around for what could be made locally."
