The Secret to Getting Your Book on Booksense

The key now seems to be a colon and the magical words "A Novel," although "Stories," "Epic" and a second colon also seem to have worked.

Here's proof on the October Booksense list:

ONE GOOD TURN: A Novel, by Kate Atkinson
ABUNDANCE: A Novel of Marie Antoinette, by Sena Jeter Naslund
THE THIRTEENTH TALE: A Novel, by Diane Setterfield
SHARP OBJECTS: A Novel, by Gillian Flynn
WHEN MADELINE WAS YOUNG: A Novel, by Jane Hamilton
THE MEANING OF NIGHT: A Confession, by Michael Cox
BLOOD AND THUNDER: An Epic of the American West, by Hampton Sides
CORONADO: Stories, by Dennis Lehane
THIRTEEN MOONS: A Novel, by Charles Frazier
BABY JACK: A Novel, by Frank Schaeffer
FORGETFULNESS: A Novel, by Ward Just
MARY: A Novel, by Janis Cooke Newman
THE RIGHTEOUS MEN: A Novel, by Sam Bourne
AWAKE IN THE DARK: Stories, by Shira Nayman
EASTER RISING: An Irish-American Coming Up From Under, by Michael Patrick MacDonald
MAGIC STUDY, by Maria V. Snyder
ROADSHOW: Landscape With Drums: A Concert Tour by Motorcycle, by Neil Pear
THINGS TO BRING, $#!T TO DO...AND OTHER INVENTORIES OF ANXIETY: My Life in Lists, by Karen Rizzo

Full disclosure: I've had two books on Booksense - Circles of Confusion and Learning to Fly. Neither one of them had a colon in the title, let alone "A Novel." The whole thing seems a bit odd. I can't imagine Middlemarch: A Novel, or Jane Eyre: A Novel.
