No stupid questions, Elaine. Welcome!

Book industry sales numbers for July - up for the month but still down for the year, with ebooks continuing to rise and mass market continuing to fall: http://new.publishersweekly.com/pw/print/20090928/1987-aap-july-sal...

And may I make a gentle reminder that this thread is for news about the industry, not personal news about books coming out or readings. I'm adding a thread for the latter, though. Please feel free to post your personal news there. Thanks!

I am so new here. I forgot that I can just sign up for a group and be admitted. Sorry for asking about how to join. I know that was a stupid question!

Yay! Some good news in publishing (and about my publisher, too!): Random House Profit Doubles in First Half of 2010

Morgan, I'm now reading one of our SheWrites friends' books, The Middle Ages. Guess what age group it features? Yep. You should check out author Jennie Fields. I enjoyed her first book, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry as well. I have to say her writing is much crisper and her stories more engrossing than Lee Smith's. I, like you, identify with people in my similar stage in life. I believe this is the biggest audience buying books too.

Thanks, Emily, I will. And Meg, you've done a good job of clarifying what an agent can do for a writer even in this new day.
Comment by Emily Kennedy on August 27, 2010 at 7:17am
Morgan, you can try Lee Smith's The Last Girls. The main characters are middle aged women. It seems to me that Lee Smith is writing from experience, so you might enjoy her point of view.
