Instead of a typical Teaser Tuesday, I want to introduce you to an upcoming Harper Perennial title, “Up From the Blue” by Susan Henderson, which is being released on September 21, 2010.

“Let me try,” she said, but I never felt the comb touch my head, as if she just stood there staring at my hair, not at all sure where to start. After a while, she simply went inside without saying a word. I was glad to have my last moments there to myself, feeling the sun heat the top of my head and imagining how it would be to run to Momma.

Harper Perennial Week on Devourer of Books

In the last year or so I’ve really started to become aware of who publishes what I’m reading. In particular, I’ve been looking at the imprints that publish some of my favorite books, instead of simply looking at the over-arching publishing house.

One of my favorite imprints is Harper Perennial, and I’m not just saying that because I love the marketing team.

No, Harper Perennial is one of my favorite imprints because of the wide variety of high-quality books they publish. In addition to publishing the paperbacks of many other Harper Collins hardcovers, it also publishes some great paperback originals, both fiction and non-fiction, from young or new authors. As a result, Harper Perennial has a huge range of fantastic books.

All this coming week I will be reviewing Harper Perennial books – look for a giveaway later this week of some Harper Perennial favorites!
