on The Book Designer:
If you’re like many authors, you’ve seen a “roundup” article that made you think, “My book should have been included in that.”
A roundup article shares the best, worst, most, least, newest, top, funniest, etc. products related to a specific category or theme. They’re published in magazines and newspapers and appear online on media and content sites as well as on blogs.
Books are a popular roundup topic, especially this time of year, when media outlets and online sites share their “best summer beach reads.”
