Our deepest condolences go out toBronwen, her family, the Soho Pressfamily, and the publishing world fortheir (and our) loss of Laura Hruska— amother, author, and pioneer.
Soho has been very busy this past year,as always—feeling the love, review-style,from
Publishers Weekly
and the
 New York Times
throughout the year. One of the most recent releases,
Village of the Ghost  Bears
(December 09) by Stan Jones fromSoho Crime got a starred review in
Publishers Weekly
and a few nods from someof the smaller periodicals such as
 Entertainment Weekly
People Magazine
 Library Journal
and the still in-print (yay)
Kirkus Reviews
! With arson, murder andsituated in the remote area of the grand stateof Alaska, how could you go wrong?

Happy New Year!
Another year has gone by in the blink of an eye. The oughts aregone and now, entering the pre-teen years, we look ahead. Despite the economic downturn—somethingyou might have heard about—we have been very busy here at Benay. We welcomed an exciting newclient to our family this past August, Soho Press. If you aren’t already familiar with Soho —they beganin 1986 and are an established general interest publisher, publishing 60-80 titles per year, though theyare best known for their mystery series and crime series. We are very happy to have them aboard.Another exciting change for us is that
we have moved our offices
. After being located in a quiet countrysetting for over 30 years, we have decided that an office in the downtown of the burgeoning main streetof Danbury will be a welcomed new environment. Our new address is:
155 Main Street, Suite 201Danbury, CT 06810(our phone and fax numbers remain the same)
Please remember - if you have news that you would like us to share, please send the information tomerrilee@benayei.com so we can include it in our next newsletter.
