Byte-Size Blair | November 24

We’re back with Byte-Size Blair, our weekly wrap-up of all things social media. If you’re not already following us on Facebook,Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, give us a look.

Happy Turkey Week, everybody! We can’t believe the holiday season is here… or maybe we can, because we’ve been gifted with so much great book news. Obviously, our books were on the good list this year.

1. Maybe Minnesotans aren’t thrilled about their grape salad, but we couldn’t be happier that Well, Shut My Mouth! and Soul Food Odyssey (July 2015) author Stephanie L. Tyson was the chef behind North Carolina’s must-have Thanksgiving addition, according to The New York Times.

2. Speaking of 2015 titles, Tiya Miles, the MacArthur fellow behind our upcoming novel The Cherokee Rose, was featured with her husband in a great article in Montana State’s newsletter.

3. The Messy Desk contest is coming to an end, so make sure you “like” your favorite entries, because we are announcing the winner and runners-up on Tuesday, November 25.

4. Foreword Reviews featured Badass Civil War Beards for No Shave November (make sure to enter our #NSN contest!)

5. We’re happy to share space on this list with Jeni’s Ice Creams, but seriously… when are they going to open a storefront in Winston-Salem?

We know many of you hate to start celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving has even arrived, but c’mon! This is too cute.

Last week was pub week for our final fall season title, Badass Civil War Beards! We’ll miss you fall season, but we are so pumped for spring! (P.S.–The spring catalog is up online now!)

1.) Badass Civil War Beards tops this list of 10 Most Perfect Presents for Guys This Holiday!

2.) If you haven’t purchased your copy of Badass yet, make sure you do so you can take an awesome book face photo like the Blair staff.

3.) The Ghost Will See You Now author Randy Russell appeared on The Paranormal View radio show!

4.) Speaking of radio, the Badass Hider sisters were on Cincinnati public radio.

5.) We’ve had an amazing 60th anniversary year, but we have one more thing on our wish list.

Blair pet Carmen was back at it during a busy weekend hiking the Mountains-to-Sea trail with her owners.

November already! We can’t believe it.

1.) If you missed the hilarious interview in Cincinnati Magazine with Badass Civil War Beards authors Anna and Julia Hider, it’s time to play catch-up!

2.) #SpineChillingReads was trending on Twitter and we were happy to throw The Ghost Will See You Now into the ring.

3.) As our 60th Anniversary comes to a close, we couldn’t help but celebrate Throwback Thursday with another gorgeous shot from Mr. Blair’s Winston-Salem upbringing.

4.) Also, it’s officially No Shave November, so set those whiskers to growing!

5.) What were you for Halloween? Publicist Sally rocked her one-step costume.

See you next week!
