The latest novel in J.R. Ward’s #1 New York Times-bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series, The King, debuted at # 1 on the hardcover fiction list, the eBook fiction list, and the combined print and eBook fiction list. This past weekend in Cincinnati, nearly 800 of Ward’s fans joined the author for her annual Black Dagger Brotherhood event.  Fans lined up hours prior to her event at the Cincinnati Millennium Hotel Grand Ballroom to meet the author.  (NAL moved Ward’s book events to off-site venues last year, because the crowds were too big for any of the area bookstores.)  During the event, the author answered questions about her ongoing series and revealed the title of the next BDB book, The Shadows. Ward will also be the subject of an in-depth profile in The Boston Globe on April 13.
