* “A list of desired but often realistically unobtainable items,” says the dictionary.
That was then. This is now. The Internet has made everything attainable, and wishlists are now a common shopping tool. And when it comes to books, reading wishlists are more obtainable than ever in more formats than ever.
Wishlist Publishing’s list will grow to include short stories, short novels, and full novels in e-book and in print editions, and eventually collections and audio books.
The Wishlist launch titles in December, 2011, were Carole Nelson Douglas’s updates of Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol, for our scary financial times.
Scrogged: A Cyber Christmas Carol, is a novella about the Enron collapse in 2001 that presaged the Great Recession, which Douglas addresses in depth in the short novel, A Wall Street Christmas Carol.
The January title is The Private Wife of Sherlock Holmes, featuring, Irene Adler, the only woman to outwit the great detective. Douglas is the first author to make a woman from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s immortal stories a protagonist of her own series, with appearances by Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.
Watch this space for more items from and for your reading Wishlist.
And thanks for being patient with our construction.
