After years of marginalizing self-publishers and even trying to make more money off of them, this is huge news. Oh, wait, I forgot about them getting into the business with their new section. Oh well. Guess it's still good news for us?

Introduction
Contemporary fiction with a sprinkling of the classics.
Bragging rights
Karen Wojcik Berner is the author of the Bibliophiles series, contemporary fiction that explores the lives of fictional American suburban book club members. The first, “A Whisper to a Scream,” centers on Sarah, a stay-at-home mother of two, and Annie, a PR executive with fertility issues, each of whom thinks the other’s life is far superior to her own. “Until My Soul Gets It Right” chronicles Catherine Elbert’s journey as she bounces from coast to coast in search of her true self. Karen grew up on the outskirts of Chicago. After graduating from Dominican University with degrees in English with a writing concentration and communications, she worked as a magazine editor, public relations coordinator, and freelance writer. A two-time “Folio Magazine” Ozzie Award for Excellence in Magazine Editorial and Design winner, her work has appeared in countless newspapers and magazines. She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her family.
