The Seattle Post-Intelligencer talks to the “least-known bestselling author” Debbie Macomber, whose latest foray into women’s fiction started its publishing life in the No. 8 slot on last week’s New York Times best-seller list. She tells John Marshall about starting out in paperback and how a jump to hardcover meant “rebuilding her audience” for her more traditionally-minded books. And as for the bestseller thing? “It’s a prestige thing, so it’s important,” said Macomber, “and I certainly would not want to discount it since that is what every writer strives to accomplish. But really what is most important to me as a writer is to touch my readers’ lives. My work may not change their lives but it does brighten their weekends.”
