Spring brought its warmth and with it, lots of happy news in the publishing industry. This month we say three cheers for independent bookstores! Not only are they thriving, but expanding. We also enjoyed watching the digital debate at the London Book Fair, and the happy co-existence of e-books and print books. There’s so much more news where that came from. Take a look at the sampling below or head on over to our #WU hashtags.

About Heather Webb

Heather grew up a military brat and naturally became obsessed with travel, culture, and languages. She put her degrees to good use teaching high school French for nearly a decade before turning to full time writing and freelance editing. Her debut historical, BECOMING JOSEPHINE, will release as lead title in January 2014 from Plume/Penguin. As an editor, Heather spends oodles of time helping writers find their voice and hone their skills--something she adores. She may often be found twittering helpful links, sharing writing advice and author interviews on her blog Between the Sheets, or teaching novel writing and publishing classes at a local college in her community. Another favorite haunt is the popular, award-winning site RomanceUniversity.org where she contributes to the Editor's Posts. When not writing, Heather flexes her foodie skills and chases her young children. You may even catch her gobbling the odd bonbon.
