We’ve been following the rise of Charlotte Rogan’s debut novel, The Lifeboat, which has received admiring reviews (check out the Washington Post’s) and media attention (including an interview the author on NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday) as well as growing holds. It arrives on the new Indie Hardcover Fiction Bestseller list at #10 (you can also expect to see it on the upcoming NYT list).

An EarlyWord “Book of the Week,” Ron Rash’s The Cove (Harper/Ecco; Thorndike Large Print) is noted as “on the rise.”
Donna Leon is still on the rise. Her 21st Commissario Brunetti mystery, Beastly Things, (Atlantic Monthly; Thorndike Large Print; AudioGo), moves up to #7, after debuting at the highest spot ever for the author last week.
Unsurprisingly, John Grisham’s baseball novel, Calico Joe,(RH/Doubleday) arrives on the list at #1.
